Whenever you’re browsing a website & it is too slow, you may wonder whether it is your connection having a problem or the server who is hosting the website.
speed.io is an internet speed test application, with a very attractive Flash interface, that you can test the speed of your web connection.
Whatever your connection type is: DSL, cable or a T1 connection, with just a click, you can start the internet speed test. It will run download, upload, connection and ping tests to give you the result.
At the end, it is no different then other speed test applications but as a designer or developer, using speed.io may be more fun.

Many users updating a domain’s DNS addresses while switching web hosting companies, probably, has an experience with new DNS addresses not being activated in a short time & spent some time with checking if they are activated or not.
DNSPinger is free web-based service that checks the domain name provided every 3 minutes for 24 hours and notifies the user via e-mail when the DNS update is activated.
Few days ago, I updated the DNS addresses of a domain name and it took more than 12 hours to activate and I spent some time with pinging it to see if the hosting switch was successful. Rather than checking for it anymore, I created a .vbs file that would check the update status and notify me.
Hoping to help other users having the same problem, here is DNSPinger, an easy to use DNS update notifier.
If you’re dealing frequently with domain names, bookmark DNSPinger and it’ll save your time.
