WinIP allows internet users to access your computer via a static host name like myname.example.com even though you may have a dynamic IP address. This lets others access your web, file, or other server the same way every time, instead of having to enter a different IP address every time you reconnect to the internet.
With WinIP, your machine will get a fully qualified domain name. Even if your computer's internet address is dynamically assigned, people can connect to your machine's FTP, WWW, IRC or other server by using your single hostname, recognized on the entire Internet. WinIP can manage multiple hostnames pointing to different IP addresses.
Features of WinIP include:
- Brand new user interface allows you to manage multiple hostnames or domain names with the same program
- Run as a Windows Service on Windows XP and NT
- Automatic configuration; just enter your account name and password and the host configuration will be pulled from the server
- SSL encryption to protect your account
