Dynamic DNS exposes router management to Public Internet

Hi I enabled the dynamic dns service and setup a hostname as it is required for Openvpn. I noticed yesterday when I actually go to mydomain.netgear.com it opens up my router management page and does not have ssl, Can i hide my router from this?

 

Thanks

   DNS doesn't really matter in this, only that you're using your
WAN/Internet (public) IP address (with or without any kind of DNS
look-up).
