Understanding Website Care

Almost every day, we hear on the news that another company got hacked or the website was maliciously taken down. Then a few weeks later, a lawsuit against the company is announced.

Is your website valuable to your business?

It is how people find you. It gets leads for you. If you have a well-built website, it may sell for you or help sell, take payments, book clients, manage events, engage your audience. It serves as the core of your social media and other online presences.

What about hacking or breaches?

Every day we hear about businesses and individuals that are hacked and have data stolen, wiped out, ransomed or hacked. Sites are injected with the code to sell fake viagra or send your visitors to porn sites. How much damage would that do to your business or personal reputation?

Doesn’t my host take care of these things?

Mostly no. They may do some sort of backups, but they are likely on site and may even be on the same machine or building. What happens if the machine crashes or the datacenter is hit with fire, flood, earthquake or tornado?

What you should really be asking is what is the real cost of neglecting your website?

Total Cost of Ownership (again)

Do not forget to put in place a plan to keep your website safe from malware and performing well. A good website is not a create and forget project. The good news is that the cost of maintaining most websites is actually less than the “yellow pages” ads of yesteryear.
