Three Reasons To Protect Your Website


"Too late! Too late!" will be the cry-when the server with your files has gone bye-bye.

We have no end of customers who join us just after a catastrophe.  Just in the last week, customers joined us after:

  1. Their entire Virtual Server (VPS) was lost due to file corruption, and their host could not recover the data.

  2. The web host that they trusted to run their website didn't pay their bills, and ended up deleting hundreds of their customers' websites without warning.

  3. A junior web developer at a small company was updating their blog database and accidentally dropped the table holding their content and comments.

There are so many things that can go wrong- but the best thing is, it's really easy to protect yourself.  A simple step forward is to have a recent copy of your website and database to hand, on a completely separate system to your main website.

If your house burnt to the ground, wouldn't it be great to be able to move into an identical, undamaged one across the road?  The only thing you have to do is to make this decision before the fire starts.
