We live in a world where businesses depend on reliable internet servers. Some issues you face today are small, but some can be catastrophic without an IT roadmap and a good team to keep you up and running. Here are some of your most common website problems explained.

 

  1. Security

 

Cyber attacks and viruses aren’t an uncommon problem for businesses, unfortunately. A cyber attack can cause major data breaches, potentially losing you money and customers. Protection and security from these threats are crucial when dealing with your company’s website. Hackers aim to steal data and disrupt your service. However, with managed security and security policy development, you and your business will always be protected against cyber attacks.

 

  1. Slow Loading Times

 

Managed IT services are essential if your website is experiencing slow loading times. Did you know that more than half of users say they will click away if a page doesn’t load within three seconds? This means you’re more likely to keep your potential customers engaged with speedy loading times. If your videos or photo rendering features are contributing to slow loading times, we can help you create a plan that focuses on your unique hosting needs.

 

  1. Downtime and Outages

 

Your server could be down for a number of reasons. Some common reasons for an outage are:

  • A power outage
  • A physical cause like flood or fire
  • Cyber attack
  • Malware
  • Overheating
  • Software failure
  • Hardware failure

There’s a long list of issues that can contribute to a disruption in service or downtime. The most important thing to remember is that having the proper IT management team can save you time and money by solving your website problems quickly. The best IT management teams prevent these kinds of things from happening altogether.

 

  1. Hardware or Software Crashes

 

When hardware or software crashes occur, data loss can be the biggest problem your business faces. Typically, this kind of problem requires significant expertise in incident resolution. Your IT team must be reliable when it comes to monitoring possible hardware or software issues, and they must also be fully ready and capable of resolving any of these website problems quickly.

 

  1. Too Much Website Traffic

 

Too much web traffic is never a problem, as long as your server can manage the extra flow. Sometimes, during exclusive retail sales, or in the case of something going viral, a website can stop functioning correctly. High traffic volumes lead to a decrease in functionality, slow load times, and sometimes your site can stop working altogether. This can cost a business a huge loss in profits. Companies who use a dedicated managed server tend to prevent this kind of issue because that kind of specialized service provides a constant level of security for your customers.
