Whilst trying to access a local companies website that deals with property sales in Hull we couldn’t get on to it. After calling them to arrange a viewing of a property and speaking to them they knew of the problem but weren’t sure why it was down.
After a reverse lookup, some magic and to see what other websites were hosted on the same server we found over 300 other websites also down which can’t be good for business. Even the main website for the software company Gnomen was down which must be a worry for them and we hope they get it back up soon!
A website can be key to some businesses and the property market whether sales or lettings the shop front is literally the website.
Technical errors happen, websites do go down, power cuts, cables dug up and a lot of other reasons. Aas a company you need to think of is how would your website or plan look if for whatever reason the current hosting company couldn’t get it back up within a few days or even at all.
Always understand or have a plan!
