The 3 Most Common Issues Hindering Your Website’s Success

Slowly loading pages, viruses, and problems with high traffic. Sound familiar? These are the most common server errors that are not just super annoying but can also be disastrous for your business. If clients are unable to access your website, they’ll quickly move on to one of your competitors, leaving you with a loss of revenue and a potentially damaged reputation.

Any downtime therefore is extremely expensive for your business. When it comes to your hosting provider, reliability of service is one of the most important factors to ensure business continuity. Therefore, if you’re experiencing server issues, it might be time to move on as downtime means your money is on the line.

What are the most common server issues?

Slow Page Loads

Loading, loading, loading… If a webpage doesn’t load in three seconds, over 50% of visitors abandon it and start looking at competitors. Therefore, every time your website is down, you’re losing money and potential clients. Numerous factors can contribute to slow page loading such as number of visitors, complicated forms, image rendering, videos that autoplay, or even the user’s own web browser.

Viruses, malware and cyber-attacks

Viruses, malware and cyber-attacks are a significant threat to servers, websites, and other internet resources.

Viruses or malware are pieces of malicious software that are geared towards exploiting vulnerabilities in existing hardware or software. Malware can cause websites to run slower, browsers to perform actions that the user did not approve or servers to be overloaded with requests due to page issues. A cyber-attack is any attempt to expose, alter, disable, destroy, steal or gain information through unauthorized access to or make unauthorized use of an asset.

Security is always a main concern, as business owners must keep themselves, the company, their employees and clients safe at all times.

Server overload

Server overload is another huge pain point, especially when traffic starts to increase, which means that your website is getting attention. When high traffic to a website is sudden and unexpected, it can create a drain on the resources – especially when the server has a finite amount – and cause issues with functionality. When overload issues start to appear, this usually means that server resources or bandwidth are being pushed to their limit.

If any of these issues sounds a bit too familiar, you might want to consider changing your host provider. There are so many hosting companies in the marketplace right now that you shouldn’t ever feel like you’re stuck with your current host. A slow website that crashes too often and has security vulnerabilities is not what you want when you can have top speed, reliability, and security. And you don’t even have to worry about the migration process – it’s easier than you’d think.
