For those of you who are regular in Cyza Sector, you might witness a downtime in this blog. I’m pretty much frustrated with this problem.
So, what is actually the problem?
I noticed that 70% of the time I can’t open my blog and 30% of the time I can. I believe some of you experience the same thing when you attempt to read my blog. This had been happening for nearly 2 weeks.
To make things worse, yesterday night, I notice that the entire blogs in my first hosting (no need to mention it here) cannot be accessed!!! The hosting server was down. I emailed the hosting company. They asked me to submit a ticket. I clicked the link but unfortunately their ticket submission page cannot be opened (because their server is down!!!)
This was for me a disastrous moment. I have 13 blogs in this hosting account. More than half are actively generating money for me. This was a downtime and I was very frustrated and down. I emailed the hosting company again but no response yet.
After 18 hours and after coming back from work, I tried my luck and thank God, all my blogs can be opened. With a little guide from my Azwan, I back up all my blogs. Yes, believe it or not, I have not back up all my blogs all this while. Honestly I don’t know how to back up them. That’s when Azwan came to the rescue and became my IT consultant via few phone calls.
I’m now in the process of backing up all my blogs from my cpanel.
Moral of the story:
1. If you have a lot of blogs and content, you need to learn how to back up them.
2. Back up your blogs at least once a month, or once a fortnight (that’s better).
3. Select a reliable hosting company. The one which will respond to your email or ticket within 1-2 hours.
4. When we have blogs that generate money…a downtime like this is a huge and gigantic lost!!! So, we need to be careful and minimize the problems.
