Keep your site backed up

By Patrick Stafford
Friday, 17 September 2010

Tech TrickFor most businesses having a website crash is a relatively easy problem to fix. But if you’re a start-up selling products online, having your site pulled down means your entire source of revenue is now destroyed.

 

 

This is why you need to make sure your website is ready to handle anything anybody can throw at it. This includes massive inflows of traffic, cyber attacks and even mistakes within the business itself.

 

Contact your hosting provider and see how you can make your website as secure as possible. You especially want to make sure your website is protected against huge flows of traffic – you don’t want to see your website go down when everyone is trying to buy your products.

 

As ZDNet reports, the South Australian treasury website went down last week after an influx of users swamped the site. Don’t have the same thing happen to you.
