You have made a substantial investment in developing your Magento ecommerce store and created cross channel customer experience. The ecommerce store was thoroughly tested and looks perfectly fine in all tested browsers and user scenarios. The site was also tested for security and got the green light to go live.
Does this mean that 100% of customers will continue to receive the same perfect user experience without constant monitoring, maintenance or support?
Your eCommerce store is viewed through browsers. Browsers are regularly updated, some automatically which could hinder functionality and stop proper operations of you online business.
Commonly eCommerce stores communicate with third party services to get shipping rates, taxes, process payment, send message, check inventory with external system, etc. Each service provider performs regular updates of their components to address new bugs, security risks and update functionality. We know from experience that such updates may break existing functionality. So maintaining a proactive approach prevents downtime and loss of sales.
Statistics published in December 2014 shows that only 25.94% sites written in PHP (which is the most popular web programming language) are maintained as secure. The underlying software is outdated with security holes that any attacker can manipulate. It’s just matter of time before the site will be hacked and used for different undesired purposes. Such examples include installing and distributing malicious software or stealing customers credit cards and personal information. Responsible web site owners have to keep their website software up to date.
When you read 99.9% uptime, pay attention that it refers to the server uptime, not the store uptime. In reality the server may be perfectly fine, your store is still hosted but some important functionality doesn’t work as expected. Your store could benefit from the expertise of our eCommerce support specialists to make sure that it is always ready to serve customers and accept orders.
