Speed & Consistency: How Does Your CDN’s DNS Perform?

Bundled services and products usually provide a great value to customers. Take car tires, for instance. You often hear of deals where you get a fourth tire free with the purchase of three tires, which is wonderful since A) cars have four tires and B) car tires can come with a hefty price tag.

Now, consider the value of the deal if you bought three high-quality tires and the free tire was not on the same caliber. Its performance may be questionable and you’ll never be quite sure if it will last as long as your other tires. Would free really be worth the price of decreased performance?

Why Scale Is The Key To Successful Online Business

I love the Internet. The Internet is a great place to share ideas and information, to connect friends and family around the world, and to start a business.

It is this last point that gets me most excited. If you are an entrepreneur or business person, if you want to create real impact, you need to start an online business.

Don’t get me wrong. There is great value to brick and mortar. Local community is in my DNA. My parents have run a sporting good shop for the past 30+ years. But the reason today’s entrepreneurs should be salivating at the prospects of operating a business online is one word: scale.

How To Save Money On Your CDN With Dyn & aiScaler

This post was written by Milo Muller at aiScaler.

How is this possible?

CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) were created in the 90s, when the public internet was slow. Visitors were using 56k modems, fiber cables were non-existent and there were only a handful of internet exchange points. When specific websites became popular, they needed a private channel to circumvent the slow public internet, which gave birth to the CDN (Content Delivery Network). Many popular websites now pay a premium to their CDN for delivering their content over private networks with a reserved capacity, often paying up to $0.10 per GB.

Despite the rise of social media, mobile apps, and other forms of communication, email remains the number one way for many marketers to keep in touch with their customers.

Yet, using email appropriately requires a deft touch. Marketers must have a full grasp of not only which message to send to whom and at what point but also how to get their messages into the recipients’ inbox in the first place. Hence the two critical “Ds” of email marketing: decision and delivery.

Current email strategies require competencies in both areas. Here are the top things you can do today to improve your decisions and delivery, and ultimately lead to improved customer engagement.
