Anyway you handle it, website or blog problems mean lost productivity and lost profits. To help keep downtime to a minimum, make sure you start with a good Web hosting company that provides regular security updates and great customer service. Also, be careful about updating plugins. Visit the plugin site first to make sure you want the update version and to see if anyone has had issues with the update. Finally, spamming can bring your website to its knees and hold it hostage.
