If you're an Umbrella customer, this is the name of the Network you've enabled Dynamic updates for in the Configuration. If there are any single-quotes in your password, put backslash ( \ ) before the single-quote to escape the character.
Dynamic DNS or DDNS is a method of updating, in real time, a DNS to point to a changing IP address on the Internet.This is used to provide a persistent domain name for a resource lacking a static IP.To use DDNS, you need to both sign up with a DDNS provider and set up an automatic update tool that will notify the provider when your IP address changes.This creates a DNS A record that can be dynamically updated.Expand the triangle and click View Credentials to see the generated username and password. Some routers have the ability to update Dynamic DNS entries directly within the router interface.This article on OS X Daily was quite helpful to determine a quick dig command to accomplish this.
