We’ve Got A Serverdown: The impact of server downtime on your business
What Does It Mean?
A server down time happens when your business website or app like a blog, ecommerce store, media portal, etc. all of a sudden becomes unavailable to the thousands, if not millions of customers/visitors you have – for reasons unknown to you.
Reasons Why Servers Go Down

The Impact of Server Downtime
- Sales: Your customers/visitors can’t access your website which means that they can’t buy anything
- Productivity: Your employees in a server-based workforce can’t work
- Data: Data may be corrupted or lost due to downtime
- Time: Without a dependable contingency plan, a lot of time is spent in sorting out the issues
- Reputation: A lengthy downtime can take a toll on your business or brand’s reputation
- Satisfaction: Unable to buy from you, returning customers will be unhappy
Can You Survive The Ordeal & The Cost?
Among companies that have suffered downtime, an average of 7% say that their survival would be at risk after only an hour of downtime. Only 6% of businesses are said to survive a severe data loss.

- Monitor your usage at all times to predict and avoid any overloads
- Use iron-clad anti-malware, hack, firewall and security protocols
- Maintain your patch management
- Educate and train your staff to use these methods
