Does your website keep going offline?

Posted on February 3, 2021 at 12:21 pm

Your website might be vital to you running your business. Especially at the moment, as many companies can only trade online due to lockdown restrictions. If you find that your website keeps going offline you need to find out why and fix it as soon as possible.

If your website is going online and then back on again randomly then it is likely that the problem is with your hosting. The first thing you need to do is contact your hosting company and ask them to investigate what is happening. When your website is set up on a hosting account, it may be put on to a shared server. This means there may be hundreds of other sites that have no affiliation to yours on the same server. The issue is that if there is a problem with one of the other sites that are hosted on the same server, it may well take yours offline too. This can be frustrating and cause you to lose business through no fault of your own. Another reason that your website hosting may go down is if you have exceeded a bandwidth limit. If you have a sudden spike in traffic your site may go temporary offline. Using cloud hosting can help prevent this as it calls for the extra space when needed.
