This is a performance evaluation that is made not just by the user visiting your website, but by search engines as well. In recent years, consumers have come to expect virtually instantaneous results from their devices, and of the websites, they visit.

It’s a common belief that once we purchase a domain, it’ll be ours for as long as we like. Big mistake. Mainly because there are genuine threats to your domain online that mostly go unthought of.

It’s easy for us to cruise the net, not really thinking of anything other than exactly what we’re hoping to achieve whether it’s making a payment via online banking or buying a new laptop on Black Friday. But we forget that there’s a whole system working in the background of each and every website, keeping it online and making sure it works to the best of its ability.

Stop what you’re doing and make your passwords more secure! How, you ask? Read on to find out. It’s become very anecdotal when we speak about passwords for our online accounts and why these might matter.

We are wrong.

Website uptime monitoring is exactly what it sounds like; a service that monitors your website from the countries you’ve selected, to see if it is up and running. This saves you the stress of having to constantly use your resource to check for any downtime, or individual errors/issues, or run the risk of your customers telling you it’s down. The best part about uptime monitoring is that you can choose how often you’d like your site to be monitored.
