Everybody Robert Cairns CEO/Chief Creator of Amazing Ideas at StunningDigitalMarketing.com. How are you all out there and Facebook today? Today I wanted to jump on a Facebook Live spin a long time since I’ve done one and talk about this whole issue with a to hosting overseas. And the issues they’ve had. First of all,

Unknown Speaker 1:24
frankly, they should be out of business.

Unknown Speaker 1:27
A two I was thinking I some major major issues going on right now. And at the end of the day, the reality is,

Unknown Speaker 1:36
the situation is not good over.

Unknown Speaker 1:38
Basically they’ve had to shut down all the Windows servers, they were hacked. And to go with it even more. Not only are there issues with the Windows servers, there’s also issues with their backup server. And I want to address that issue. folks were fear backup servers, you need to do more backups and trust your web hosts to do them for you. And you need to throw that into your head, your website needs to be protected. And how you do that is either a do the backups yourself Updraft Plus a backup buddy are my two favorite choices forgot or be go to a professional and get a care plan that includes security updates and backups. Because the odds are as a small business owner, you’re not going to do them anyway. So you might as well protect yourself. Protect yourself now. Because a website being down can cost you more time, money and resources than just

paying for a care plan. And by the way, not to counter on home. But if you want a care plan PME DMV go to stunning digital marketing. com, we are free care plans for clients will even do the hosting for you Take care right out of around. Now, many people are going to argue and say this is just the sales shop. Frankly, again today, if you want to hire us great, but do something about it. Because this is the second time a major host web house has been hacked to the last couple years before that many many years ago was Melbourne it in Australia, and their backup server got decimated in their half. So when they tried to bring sites up that many clients who had issues because frankly, they didn’t have a backup. also shared hosting plants, check your Terms of Service, you’ll find that many many shared host don’t do regular backups. I know site ground does. But if you’re on a GoDaddy or an E dirt cert national group, which you shouldn’t be on to start with. That’s another discussion. They don’t do enough backups, they might do one once every couple of weeks. Or frankly, that’s not enough. What you really need. And what we do is we keep backups for six months to a year every weekly off site. And frankly we do daily backups for most of our clients that goes on our site location. Then once a week we move them off site just so we have one. So protect yourself and even more so if you have an e commerce site. If I can help you reach out to me on Facebook, on Twitter I’m at Robert Cairns by email Hello at standing digital marketing. com Our website state digital marketing com. Be glad to work with you set up a plan and let’s make it happen. Protect your website do your backups don’t trust your web host for backups Robert Cairns Have a great weekend everybody Bye for now.
