Daylight savings time kicks in March 9 and that means more sunshine and the segue to spring.
It also means losing an hour.
DNS Made Easy offers these five tips to help regain the time lost for this practice of advancing the clocks ahead.
1. Ramp up your Domain Name Service (DNS) provider.
DNS translates human-language domain names into machine-readable IP addresses. These allow a users’ computer to connect to the destination web server and bring up the web page. Normally, DNS is a fast process that takes milliseconds. Once the “lookup” is done the client computer connects directly to the destination server, leaving the DNS server free to deal with another request. The speed at which a DNS server can resolve domain names into IP addresses depends on its geographic location among other factors. DNS Made Easy operates Internet backbones with the largest and most reliable data providers in the business. Providing answers to each DNS request with complete redundancy is what we guarantee for each of the 9 billion DNS requests we receive each day.
2. Don’t monitor your own system; let DNS Made Easy do it for you.
DNS Made Easy’s Automatic DNS Failover and System Monitoring solution can guarantee that as soon as your website, service, or internet connection is offline, all your traffic will be automatically pointed over to a secondary IP address, server, or provider you have set up at another location. This gives you a much higher uptime.
3. Go global.
The Global Traffic Director from DNS Made Easy provides geographical source-based IP routing, which allows the administrator to optimize traffic flow based on the geographical location of the end user. Traffic can be regionally divided among different servers or data centers, which can greatly increase the performance and speed of your website and services for your clients.
4. Don’t lose work.
DNS Made Easy’s back-up e-mail service provides access to three additional enterprise e-mail server clusters for complete e-mail redundancy. If your mail server cannot be reached, then your e-mail is sent to DNS Made Easy’s Enterprise Back-up e-mail servers. Once it reaches our servers, it remains in queue and we continually reattempt delivery of the mail to your primary mail server. When your primary server is back online, the queued mail is instantly delivered to your mail server. DNS Made Easy will keep attempting to deliver mail to your server for 14 days or until it responds.
5. Time is Money.
Losing an hour means 60 minutes less time to earn income. DNS Made Easy offers a bonus program where every referral that results in a new user means you get paid. It is our way of saying thank-you for helping spread of the word of DNS Made Easy.
