You’ve had a website built, it’s running smoothly taking orders, generating leads and making sales. Suddenly one day without warning, there’s an error on the screen and the website isn’t working. Why does this happen?

In the olden days, a web designer would create a webpage out of HTML code – a bit like a Word document – and upload it to a webserver where it would sit, hopefully getting views for years on end without issue.
Websites aren’t like that any more.
