DNS Made Easy Tops Network Speeds Again

Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

For three months in a row, DNS Made Easy, the leading provider of enterprise IP Anycast Managed DNS services, was named the fastest network provider for speed across the United States. In the past six months, DNS Made Easy has been in the top three, climbing from third to first place, with our closest competitor a half second behind our average speed.

Network speeds are mission-critical in providing fast resolution times for customer domains. Low latency applications, such as DNS are typically where delays occur in processing data. Thats why DNS Made Easy invests in network infrastructure, which provides the extra edge over the competition in terms of performance and speed.

DNS Made Easy invests 89% of all revenue in hardware, colocation, bandwidth, and DDoS mitigation-related services. This investment is vastly different form normal industry practices where sales commissions and other associated marketing costs generally account for a major percentage of where companies apply their revenue.

DNS Made Easy duplicated the top speed for the fastest DNS provider, repeating the exceptional service in December in 2013.

“We remain the top in the industry for speed, because of the time, knowledge, and financial investment we put into our equipment and infrastructure,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. “I am pleased to see these results, because the difference between our speed and the competitor who comes in at second place is quite dramatic. DNS Made Easy is two-to-three times faster than competing DNS services that charge exponentially more for speed.”

Tiggee the parent company of DNS Made Easy, published a recent study that shows the importance of speed in e-commerce. The study cites Google, Yahoo! and Amazon research findings that one tenth of a second can make the difference between a customer who clicks off the site or continues to browse.

Speed also translates into Search Engine Optimization (SEO) returns. Google and other search engines rank websites based on speed in which DNS resolution plays a large role. The better SEO return, the more likely the site is to appear in the first page or on the top result of a search result. A site ranked in the #1 spot in a search result can usually expect 8.5 times as much traffic as a web site that is ranked in the 5th spot on the first page.

Customers who use DNS Made Easy have access to the fastest network in the industry and cut query resolution by more than 50%, which vastly improves SEO for those domains.

“We are so competitive when it comes to speed and performance that we often find we are competing with ourselves and our own times,” Job said. “DNS Made Easy has been defining a new standard in uptime and performance for 12 years.”

DNS Made Easy will continue infrastructure improvements throughout 2014 aimed at further network optimization. Customers can expect to see major improvements in Asia-based regions as well as on the West Coast in the United States. New network locations are also planned in 2014 following the deployment of Sydney, Australia; a much anticipated launch that took place at the end of 2013.

With Launch of Second Platform, Association Forum of Chicagoland Reaps Additional Benefits from Dynamic Benchmarking Solutions

Windham, NH (PRWEB) January 30, 2014

Dynamic Benchmarking, a provider of dynamic online business benchmarking and reporting solutions, is pleased to announce the successful launch of another data collection and analysis platform for the Association Forum of Chicagoland. Based on member feedback InSight EZ will provide a simple, yet highly informative means of measuring and comparing the information technology and meeting planning practices of its member associations.

For nearly 100 years, Association Forum of Chicagoland has remained the definitive resource for tools and best practices in the field of association management for over 47,000 association professionals in the greater Chicago area. In support of that mission, the organization found it vital to provide its members with a means of comparing key performance indicators with that of their peers so that they may accurately measure performance, support business initiatives and identify best practices. In 2011, Association Forum contracted with Dynamic Benchmarking to build its first online benchmarking platform to collect and compare data on association meeting planner practices. The platform, dubbed InSight, was launched in May 2012 and provides participating organizations with the ability to compare key data points of its meeting planning activities with that of like organizations.

Dynamic Benchmarking provided us with a means to formalize the ad-hoc conversations that were already happening between meeting planners, comments Jason Wampler, Director of Information Technology for Association Forum. By expanding these one-off conversations into an association-wide survey, we are now able to give our members solid, comprehensive data on which to base their business decisions rather than the anecdotal information on which many once relied.

The meeting planner platform compares key data points on space utilization, audio-visual and food budgets, printing and marketing costs and much more all provided in a secure and anonymous manner. Through the use of customizable filters, users are able to generate reports which compare these key data points and are essential to identifying industry trends and best practices to inform and support their meeting planning activities.

In May 2013, Association Forum provided the same support for association information technology professionals by launching a new online benchmarking tool on their InSight platform to identify and measure best practices and trends in association technology implementation and practices.

With this new tool from Dynamic Benchmarking we are now able to provide IT professionals with hard data to support their business decisions and budgetary needs, hard data based on organizations similar to their own, continues Wampler. Our IT professionals can now compare key performance indicators of their organizations with peers by budget, total members, and organization size, giving them a more accurate comparison than what was previously available.
