What happens if a dedicated server goes down?

A dedicated server is used exclusively to host your website. And it is not cheap. As such, you rely on it to keep your website up and make sure it runs without interruptions. However, just like any man-made thing, a dedicated server can fail. Several reasons can cause failure. A large amount of incoming traffic, malware, or a DDoS attack are some of the most common reasons.

When a dedicated server is down, data that are stored on the server hard disk are safe. Even if the server is down by a hacker attack, regular back-ups are performed to recover information in such cases. However, regardless of the cause, a server down can damage your business in other ways.

You can have a loss in sales. These losses vary depending on how much your company relies on its website to make its sales. If we are talking about an online store, a server down can represent a serious economic disaster. Your competitors will benefit from this event since many of your clients will prefer to buy from other websites.

If your Chisinau VPS dedicated server is used to run some important software for your organization, productivity may suffer in this case. Even if your personnel are at work, but they cannot use the software they need, they will not be able to do anything. Your productivity will also go down as a result.

Last but not least, the image of your company will be tarnished. For example, in the case of an online store, many disappointed clients will leave and not come back in the future.
