Determining the MyFRITZ! domain name to directly access FRITZ!Box and home network from the internet
The first time a FRITZ!Box registers with your MyFRITZ! account, it is assigned a random, unique domain name ending with .myfritz.net. The FRITZ!Box can be accessed over the internet under this domain name at all times, even if its public IP address changes on a regular basis.
The MyFRITZ! domain name is required to easily and reliably redirect you to the MyFRITZ! home page of your FRITZ!Box after you have logged on to myfritz.net.
However, you can also use the MyFRITZ! domain name to access your FRITZ!Box directly, for instance using a bookmark in your browser. In addition, you can also use the MyFRITZ! domain name to establish VPN connections to your FRITZ!Box or access applications and services in your home network for which you configured port sharing in the FRITZ!Box.
Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.
1 Determining the MyFRITZ! domain name

- Click "Permit Access" in the "Internet" menu.
- Click the "FRITZ!Box Services" tab.
- Make note of the MyFRITZ! domain name of the FRITZ!Box displayed in the field "Address of your FRITZ!Box". It begins after the "https://" and ends with "myfritz.net" (see fig.).
