Monitoring - How to WordPress?
What could go wrong MONITORING wise?
Monitoring-wise, the solution is simple. You do it with a dedicated tool. Constantly monitoring your website, enhances the value of the daily tasks and prevents embarrassments or unexpected shocks. You really want to avoid the embarrassment being called by your customer, that your website is down. You really need to protect yourself from the shocking reality, that your hosting company does not care if your site is down (for them it's cheaper the hourly hosting cost and they can sell you extra services).
The old solution - checking from time to time if domain loads - is now considered insufficient and perilous. So, how do you monitor your website?
The answer is monitoring several factors, on a fast paced cadence. One check every 15 minutes is considered a barely safe approach. Checking from at least 2 locations is considered a barely safe approach. Checking from 3 technologies (OS, browser, mobile, desktop, wifi, 4G) is considered a barely safe approach. Never outsource your monitoring to your hosting company and never allow blocking your external monitoring. When you start monitoring, first, you monitor your domain. This ensures, that hosting is still up and running, and your DNS is still ok. Second, you do the monitoring from several locations, especially if your customers are national or internationally spread. Then you implement a more technical approach and start monitoring the performance of your business critical and business important pages.
How to ensure your WordPress website’s success?
If you are a business owner, feeling proud and holding on to the success of your WordPress website after it's launched can be a challenge. You invested a ton on money, time and effort creating a beautiful online image for your customers. You hired experts to code your new website, marketing specialist to write your new attractive content, SEO experts to polish the focus to the maximum. They all did a good job - they created a product. That product is your website, attracting customers, creating the opportunity for non-stop open business to sell your REAL money magnet.
This is the point where most business owners don't understand the main reason for being online. You put all this effort to be online, so you want to be there as much as possible. Preferably honing and refining your business as days and months and years go by. All the hired experts focus on the product they were hired to deliver: WordPress theme, catchy titles, and content, attention grabbing CTA’s and keyword density. They are not interested preserving what is already done, because, that is not their business focus. It's yours as a business owner!
