How do you know if your website has crashed?

If a tree falls in a forest and no one’s around to hear it, does it make a sound? This is a good question for your website – how do you know when your site crashes? If your website is down, every minute is another minute of traffic lost to your competitors sites. And we cannot have that… Personally, we check our client’s websites once every five minutes to ensure that no valuable traffic is lost to their competitors.

Why do WordPress sites go down?

Websites can go down for a number of reasons. It could be large-scale events like a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on a national Internet provider. It could also be a server outage or something as simple as a bug that was unintentionally created by a developer. Any of these can cause your site to crash.

The internet is a complex web of dependent variables. Most of the time when your website goes down, it’s unintentional and not ill-intended. Sure, accidents happen, but accident or not, your site is down and your digital presence is damaged for the moment either way. Array Digital arms you with the information you need to get your website up and running with minimal downtime.

Uptime Monitoring

At Array Digital, we monitor your website continually to confirm that it’s up and running like a champ. Some systems use plugins on the server to check, but we reach out to your website from another location to make sure our results are correct. We can confidently know that we see what your clients see.

If we find that your website goes down then we will not only log it, but we also let you know via messaging you by text message or email. Once you find out your site is down, you get it resolved quickly! Uptime notifications ensure that you are the first to know when your WordPress website is experiencing issues.

WordPress Support customers receive a weekly report which includes a summary of their websites uptime and downtime. Knowledge is power and regularly updating you on the health of your website can help you keep your competitive advantage.
