What is Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 and why you should be using it?

Your Internet Service Provider selling your data? Nah..Yes.. What?

 

The main reasons why you might want to change your Domain Name System (DNS) server away from your current Internet Service Providers (ISP) is two fold. One for security and second for speed. You see when you use any ISP and you make a request online, you use that that digital phone book to look up a website. Your ISP DNS servers respond to that request. All of those requests get logged. Now they got you and they can do anything they want with that data Which means any ISP you are using can take that data and sell it for marketing. They can use it to target you as well. Another worse case scenario is any ISP can throttle your internet depending on the site you’re accessing. So setting up a DNS servers a great first step to getting around those things. If you’re wanting Total Protection on the internet and you’re wanting to make sure that nobody can see who you are talking to, you need to add additional services. Get a Virtual Private Network (VPN)!, Using Cloudflare DNS Server 1.1.1.1 with a VPN guaranteed you 100% online invisibility.

Reasons to Use Cloudflare Now!

1. 1. 1. 1 is now the number one fastest DNS server . As you can see from the chart above Google doesn’t even make this list in the top 10.
At least in the world location last 30 days. Given that they just launched there isn’t a heck of a lot of traffic or usage on their system so I’d be curious to see where they stand in about 6 months. But for now they’re super fast. Security is another issue with traditional DNS servers DNS standards were built like 35 years ago and it wasn’t designed with security or privacy in mind. Cloudflare is trying to push into the future with this new DNS service at lunch and they are supporting both DNS over Transport Layer Security (TLS) and DNS over https open standards. Now neither of these Open Standards are widely used yet but we should see more adoption coming in the years to come. One more pretty big advantage to using one Safari one more pretty big advantage to using 1. 1. 1. 1 since that Cloudflare DNS resolver is integrated with cloudflare Services there’s no DNS time to live expiration for cloudflare enabled websites.

Do I need a website for my small business?

Do-I-Need-A-Website-For-My-Small-Business

What is a website?

In its bare form, a website is a single domain that consists of different web pages. We should all know that by now, but surprisingly what we don’t all know, is the benefits a website can provide for your business and its shocking to witness how many business don’t actually have a website or online presence!

If you have a business no matter how small and don’t have a website, you are losing out on great opportunities for your business. A website itself can be used to accomplish many different marketing strategies to help your business grow.

As a business owner, you need to know where your consumers are. But what if consumers know your business and what you can offer, but they can’t reach you? That is one of the risks you take by not having a website for your business.

What are some other benefits of having a business website?

#1: Cost Effective
You know exactly how much your website is going to cost you and it’s on-goings – a brick and mortar store, on the other hand, is susceptible to many out of the ordinary occurrences which could blow out the costs such as leaving the lights on, theft, damage, extra staff etc. A strategically developed website and online presence solution provides tremendous benefits and costing outlines.

#2: Accessible around the clock
Your website and social media accounts are accessible 24/7/365. Imagine that you want to buy from a store. You put in all the effort required to go to the store, but when you get there, it’s closed. We all know how irate we feel in that situation. You’ll think twice about going back given the bad taste its left (OK! might have been your fault for not checking but Hey!, this is proving the point here!). You will just find another store that is more easily accessible. Since your website is operational around the clock, from the convenience of the local coffee shop, their couch or their bed, your customers and clients can easily access your website and services.

#3: Convenient
What is more convenient: driving outside to look for different stores that are available to shop in, or sitting in the comfort of your own home and shopping for the products you’re looking for? Pretty obvious answer, unless you like aimlessly driving around. Smart businesses realize this and thus have their own website housing their products and services so that potential customers can browse online for the products they want to purchase.

#4: Credibility
By building a website you are giving your business the opportunity to tell consumers why they should trust you and the testimonials and facts to back up those opportunities. Believe it or not, most people will search the internet for a product or service before the purchase to check the credibility first. When you provide good service or product, positive word-of-mouth about your business is likely to spread. Which in turn, delivers more repeat and new business. People tend to trust a business after they have done business with it. Using your website, you can continuously serve consumers online and increase your credibility as a business owner.

#5: Sales
Without sales, or selling more than you spend, your business is doomed. By having an online presence you allow for the sale of your products or services around the clock to whoever whenever with no or hardly any limitations; Unless you run out of stock or overworked, but that’s a good problem to have right! Giving your business the online presence it deserves is crucial to your brand and accountants smile. In short, being visible worldwide means you are very likely to gain more customers. The more customers and visitors you have, the more sales you will generate. The more sales you generate the happier you and your shareholders will be!

#6: Marketing
Having a website and online presence strategy allows you to market your business online. There are lots of marketing strategies you can use to advertise and market your business. All online marketing strategies have been proven to be effective. Which ones you choose depends on the type of business you are in. Speak to us to see which are best for your business.
