Storms happen


Several years ago, I wanted a WordPress website for my consulting business. I searched for a low cost web host and found one.  

Being smart with my money is important to me.  

Then, I built my website and launched. 



Soon after I began to change things around because - well - because I could. A few weeks later my website began to do strange things seemingly on it’s own. And then one day I saw a big error message on the screen where my home page used to be. Panic!

It took me over a week to figure out what happened. And I’m rather embarrassed to admit it, but it was my own fault!

I didn’t know what I didn’t know right? 

The hosting company didn’t cost much for a reason. I shared resources with high traffic, somewhat shady websites. Unbeknownst to me the webserver we shared was having trouble keeping up with their web traffic. The end result was a file I uploaded to my website didn’t upload because the transfer timed out and I didn’t notice. And I didn’t check my website after I uploaded until a few hours had passed. 

The result was a big fat error message that cost me a big consulting job I'd submitted a proposal for. Who knows how many other potential clients I lost because of it.

As a consultant I saw similar situations happen to several small business owners. They spent a lot of time and money trying to recover what they had lost. In some cases, it was more cost effective for them to start over from scratch. That’s why I wrote Stormproof WordPress - to help you avoid the same costly mistakes we made.
