Synology: How to Use Login Portal

Synology How to Use Login Portal

When you update your old DSM 6.2 to DSM 7 you will notice that Application Portal is Now Login Portal. In the new Login Portal you can change the Login Style, and you can even change the standard ports on your DSM operating system. Login Portal allows you to “traverse a portal” by transporting you directly into one of your Synology applications that you love when you login.

For each Synology brand application you can choose an alias based on your DDNS such as yourname.synology.me/cam, yourname.synology.me/download etc. so you can easily access the login page of said application. And you can also customize the login page for each Synology app/package, just like with DSM Login Style. Moreover, you can opt for a custom domain name registered, for example, with GoDaddy, Namecheap, Google Domains etc., and use custom domain names for each individual applications. All in a professional style. In this step by step guide I will show you how you can achieve this.

Note: This option is really useful when you have a common project and you prefer to access it via a browser, directly in the application, without having to go through DSM.
