When you go to a web site and find things wrong with it do you stick around? No you don’t, you move on to a working site and most likely will never return. When you go to a web site and your anti virus software tells you the site has a virus and is trying to obtain your personal data, do you stick around? Absolutely not, you move on to a site you can trust and you will never return. Your site is at serious risk of having these same issues and more if not maintained correctly and you’re losing potential customers without even knowing it.

Or you could then pay someone experienced to fix it for you but at a hefty cost because considerable diagnostics and time will be required. Remember it costs more to fix it than it does to maintain it. Regular care and maintenance helps keeps your web site running properly.
