No registration required. No email address needed, No user details. No software setup.
From your home computer simply open the web page, enter any Username/Password/Computer-Name of your liking, and GO>>.
From your roaming device (laptop etc) visit the site, enter the same details and viola! You can see your home IP address, from anywhere in the world.
While there are several ‘dynamic DNS’ services around, and remote control software, very few are free, ALL require registration requiring you to hand over your email address and other personal details. Then there’s the client software setup etc.
If all you want is to know your home IP address, from anywhere, easily and simply; this is as easy and simple as it gets.

Really need this kind of capability, but when I try it, and am setting up the home computer, I get this
Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (HY000/1045): Access denied for user ‘badbod’@’localhost’ (using password: YES) in /home/badbod/public_html/home-ip/functions.php on line 7
Connect Error (1045) Access denied for user ‘badbod’@’localhost’ (using password: YES)

ouch, I changed server a while back and never put this DB back. doing it now. THX for the up Donald. Please use the contact form and send me your email. I will email you as soon as I have fixed it.
Many Thanks Donald for reporting the problem. It is now fixed. Please let me know if you need any assistance with it’s usage.
Thank you very much. It works like a charm.
Have to ask you:
The internet at my work is much faster than what I have at home, so I have a dedicated computer at work that hosts our game server and out TeamSpeak.
I do not wish to pay for a static IP, but if I get a extended power loss, my work router restarts with a new ip.
I have WOL and SHUTTER on the dedicated computer, but neither will work if I do not know my new IP.
If the dedicated computer looses power along with the router, your web page is going to get closed, and now I am in the same boat.
Do you happen to know of any utilities I can stick into StartUp that will open a web page with login credentials
Again, thanks for the home-ip utility.
you can use a browser like Edge or Chrome, and select the option to ‘Continue where I left off’ under Settings-On Startup. then simply place a shortcut to chrome<- insert browser here, in your 'Startup' folder. You can also use the Task Scheduler to run the browser at startup. So everything you need is already built in. No extra utility required. You are welcome to the source code to host your own copy of Home-IP,. Not sure if it is useful without a fixed IP though? I need to check myself in case I'm not setting a session cookie properly, let me know if it does not work, I will fix it. Regards BaDboD

Some details please – example ?
sorry, this was just not being used and got lost on the way during moving servers. Most ISP now moved to subnets for home connections now (don’t have enough IP addresses to give out real Internet IP’s to everyone) so not useful any more. You cannot connect like this with most ISP now.
Today is July 21,2018. I tried “This is the Home Computer” with the settings, but it doesn’t work. This is what I get. Connect Error (1045) Access denied for user ‘dnspro’@’localhost’ (using password: YES) Any clue? Thx -Kenneth
Mostly this method does not work now. I shall remove the post and page as it is also broken after moving servers and forgetting about it.
