The whole point to starting a business is to have customers, clients, or an audience. To drive traffic to your website, you’ll need to keep it regularly updated. Potential customers only spend a precious few seconds browsing your site before moving on. A stale or stagnant site will surely send your customers into the arms of a competitor.
The average Word Press website has over 5,000 individual files! Those files are constantly communicating with visitors and the server the website is hosted on. Internet service is not 100% up time. Think about how often your cell phone calls get dropped. The same thing happens on the internet. This causes a steady degradation in your website as files get corrupted due to service gaps. Any website will eventually go down due to this data leakage. Unfortunately a simple backup will not fix the problem since backups are simply recent copies of a website that may already be severely corrupted. Installing a corrupted backup will stop working almost immediately. The ONLY solution is to identify the damaged files and replace them. This is a time consuming process but is the only real solution. A website reconstruction can easily take 8-10 hours and cost $500 or more.
