What would it mean to your business if you have no support for hacking, spamming, performance and design problems, and other issues?
If you’re assuming that your business website hosting company will monitor your site for issues and provide you with hacking, spamming, performance, design and update support, here’s what you need to know about website hosting services.
Web hosting will not provide support for a website that has problems that are not due to server issues. Most websites today are are not static html sites. They are sophisticated software content management systems with many complex functions and plugins that need to be maintained and protected from malware threats. Problems on a site often occur from failure to keep software up-to-date and address plugin incompatibility issues. Keeping your site maintained requires the skills of a developer who will back up your site before upgrading software, and test for and eliminate incompatibilities and performance issues. These services are outside the scope of usual hosting support.
Without the right safeguards and website hosting support, you could be unpleasantly surprised when your site:
- Is hacked and taken offline by your hosting company.
- Is blacklisted by Google because of hacking.
- Is spammed with diversion of your traffic to another site.
- Experiences performance and design malfunctions.
- Has shopping cart issues that prevent customers from buying.
- Has lead generating forms that stop working.
- Has load time issues causing a high bounce rate.
- Is not compliant with Google algorithms, causing your rankings and traffic to plummet.
- Has no support to analyze and troubleshoot unexpected spikes in traffic from malicious causes.
- Has no support for restoring and testing site backups when needed.
- Has a design that is not mobile friendly which is producing Google penalties.
