The internet is a much more dangerous place than it used to be. With hackers and identity thieves lurking around every corner, we can’t be too careful when we’re choosing web hosting. And nowadays, it’s not only big businesses that have to worry about cyberattacks, either. Sometimes, hackers launch mass attacks that your small business website gets swept up in, or they exploit a vulnerability of your website, just so they can break into a bigger website.
It doesn’t matter the size of your business, suffering from a data loss and losing critical files essential to your business takes time and money to restore and recover. Data loss happens whenever data is accidentally deleted or data becomes corrupted. Physical damage, viruses, or formatting errors can cause your files and information to be unreadable by both humans and software. Data loss usually has a lasting impact on the financial health of your website and company.
There was a time when cyber criminals seemingly had bigger fish to fry and so they overlooked small businesses, but those days are gone. Today, no business, large or small, is immune to cyber-attacks and security threats. Information from the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) show that small businesses are the target of 71 percent of security breaches and almost 50 percent of small businesses have been victims of cyber-attacks.

Businesses can no longer reach their full potential if they don’t have a good website. Websites are vital. They expand your brand by increasing its online presence, they help establish your brand’s credibility, and, depending on how you set them up, they can earn money for you while you sleep. It’s no wonder there are millions of new websites every year. And millions of websites mean millions of people who need web hosting, so they can store those websites.
Every business needs a website. And every website needs web hosting. It’s easy to get caught up in the more exciting aspects of creating a website – branding, design, copy – and forget to give much thought to where you’re going to store it. But, as many unhappy website owners will tell you, that would be a mistake.
