The Shift to .CLOUD Is on the Rise

Cloud computing has quickly become an essential part of a business, and most companies have implemented some aspect of cloud computing into their everyday business. Some modern companies have been built entirely in the cloud, whereas others have been making the shift over time. Either way, providing or consuming cloud services is a now a key element of modern business.


Running your business remotely, especially in the midst of a global pandemic, has never been more crucial. With health and safety concerns and stay at home orders, cloud computing has allowed people to connect to their businesses from anywhere around the world. There’s no telling how long we’ll be living in this unprecedented time so cloud is no longer nice to have, but imperative for long-term success.


So cloud is here to stay, and cloud services will continue to evolve, helping businesses modernize and meet the needs of the future. In fact, an expert panel from the Forbes Technology Council says there are several cloud trends on the horizon. “The rise of cloud over the past few years has transformed business technology. From managing tech infrastructure to application development and management to remote work and beyond, cloud computing has become integrated into many business operations."


The entertainment industry is one of the many industries that had to shift gears quickly because of the pandemic. According to the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), the CEO of MovieLabs said their work environment drastically changed overnight due to COVID-19 which prompted them to migrate to the cloud more quickly. Likewise, many institutions in the education field have moved from in-person learning to virtual classrooms. Adapting and using cloud services is starting to become the new norm as we adjust to unfamiliar circumstances.


As more cloud providers and services emerge due to the increased demand for their services, the more important it’ll be for companies to prioritize the focus of branding. Good branding is vital for 3 main reasons:


1. Recognition

If you want people to remember you, you’re going to need a domain name that is unique. If you’re in the cloud space, offering a cloud service, or running a modern business, a domain like .CLOUD makes it clear the kind of service you’re offering and that you are forward thinking. For instance, a domain like dropshare.cloud makes it obvious it’s a cloud-based service and we can assume that the website is centered around file sharing based on the name.


2. Credibility

Establishing credibility and trust should be a fundamental principle for your business. One of the things Dynadot values most is transparency. Being transparent with prices and products helps boost our customers confidence when choosing us for their domains and website services. If you aren’t reliable, or credible, consumers will be forced to look at your competitors.


3. Increases Value

When people believe in you and your products, it increases value to your business. Happy customers will tell their family and friends about you and word-of-mouth marketing can be great to put your name in the spotlight.


Branding always makes sense if you want to move your business forward and one good way to brand yourself is by registering a domain name that’s unique and easy to remember. If you have a product or service and
