You can have the best website in the world, but if it isn’t up, what good is it? While you might struggle to put an exact dollar figure on the cost of downtime for your business, you know it’s there. Every moment that your website is down is time that client’s can’t learn about your company, can’t contact you for information or sales and damage to your reputation increases.
According to their website, 1&1 Internet Inc. is the largest webs hosting company in the world by known servers. “Combining over 70,000 highly efficient web servers with the renowned performance of Foundry and Cisco routers in our data centers, 1&1 utilizes the best products from the world’s leading technology manufacturers and service providers to provide customers with 99.9% uptime.”
There are two things wrong with this picture:
- 1&1 won’t publish their actual uptime statistics, making prospective clients wonder just what they are hiding, and
- BestHostRatings.com reports that since January, 2006, 1&1 has only achieved 99.842% of uptime, short of their promised uptime of 99.9%.
Nerds On Site, by comparison, publishes it’s numbers for the world to see:trust.nerdsisp.com. We maintain over four nines (99.99%) of uptime, and work very hard to provide even better stats for our clients. Contact us today to learn how we can improve your online revenues!
