Suggestion 4 : put Dynamic DNS app in on the Setup page rather than 
apps. Grouping under Domain name what is related to it.

> How to configure your router in case of dynamic DNS :
> 01 - Find out the mac address and current local IP of your device

> 02 - Open your router admistration web interface.
> 03 - Set Up an exception for your device as a static local IP.
> 04 - Create a port forwarding for 80 (http server) and 443 (https 
> secure server) ports to your FreedomBox IP (made static).
> 04 - Leave the router interface, your public IP should now provide a 
> direct access to your FreedomBox (use http://myip.datasystems24.de to 
> find out your public IP).
> How to create a DNS name with GnuDIP
> 01 - Access to GnuIP login page (answer Yes to all pop ups)
> 02 - Click on "Self Register"
> 03 - Fill the registration form (Username and domain will form the 
> public IP address [username.domain])
> 04 - Take note of the username/hostname and password that will be 
> used on the FreedomBox app.
> 05 - Save and return to the GnuDIP login page to verify your 
> username, domain and password (enter the datas, click login).
> 06 - Login output should display your new domain name along with your 
> current public IP address (this is a unique address provided by your 
> router for all your local devices).
> 07 - Leave the GnuDIP interface and open the Dynamic DNS Client app 
> page in your FreedomBox.
> 08 - Click on "Set Up" in the top menu.
> 09 - Activate Dynamic DNS
> 10 - Choose GnuDIP service.
> 11 - Add server address (gnudip.datasystems24.net)
> 13 - Add your fresh domain name (username.domain, ie 
> [username].freedombox.rocks)
> 14 - Add your fresh username (the one used in your new IP address) 
> and password
> 15 - Add your GnuDIP password
> 16 - Fill the option with http://myip.datasystems24.de (try this url 
> in your browser, you will figure out immediatly)
