Experts suggest analytics to provide information on how to better serve and manage online traffic

Being online is a must in this ever-growing technology focused era. However, just throwing up a web site doesn’t cut it anymore.

A New Year means time to collect new data, and January is the best time to start.

DNS Made Easy experts offer these tips and advice about getting online and staying online. DNS Made Easy experts say after getting online, staying online is key. It’s also imperative to gather and explore data about website traffic. Analytical data provides powerful tools that give insight to business practices.

Analytics is the discovery and communication of meaningful patterns in data. This is especially valuable in areas rich with recorded information. Analytics relies on the simultaneous application of statistics, computer programming and operations research to quantify performance.

When businesses count on being online 100 percent of the time, a system that monitors and guarantees uptime is imperative.
DNS Made Easy offers an automatic DNS failover and system monitoring solution that can guarantee as soon as a website, service, or internet connection is offline, all the traffic will be automatically pointed over to a secondary IP address, server, or provider previously set up at another location.

DNS Made Easy’s monitoring nodes check every 2 to 4 minutes to ensure a business’ primary IP is responding. The system can be custom-configured to check if service is running on either specific protocols, and on any port desired.

“As soon as any services fail to respond from at least two different geographic monitoring locations, traffic is automatically moved to a different system,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. “This minimizes the amount of downtime that would result from an outage. If used in conjunction with our System Monitoring service, an email will be sent immediately notifying your contact email address of the outage.”

Job went on to explain these tips about the procedures: the system then issues a check of the secondary IP to ensure it is responding before traffic is sent there. As long as the back-up IP is available, the change of IP address is made using DNS Made Easy’s Peregrine Instant DNS Propagation.

“We continue to monitor your primary IP address and will automatically failback appropriately once the IP address is back online based on your monitoring criteria,” Job said. “It’s a failsafe system.”
