Keeping your website up and running is the crucial step of your business. Especially if you are making your life out of that website. You have to be sure that your website is up and running smoothly at all times but, sometimes things do not go according to plan. 

Sites can go down due to human error, cyber-attacks, or hardware failure. If your website is inaccessible, your efforts might go to trash and you’ll probably face loss and customer complaints. So what should you do to prevent this? Don’t worry, we got you. In this blog, you will dive deep into what is it, what you can do about it and, how you can prevent it.
