Downtime can happen to any online merchant at any time. Whether it is intentional, accidental, or spontaneous, the question is, are you prepared to take the plunge when it happens?

A bad downtime means your website will not serve the incoming customer. This not only makes the website unavailable to the visitors, but also halts your store’s ability to generate conversions. Consequently, the visitor gets bad user experience and your page’s bounce rates begin to increase. While putting the website in downtime should be the last resort, some cases make it necessary for the website to become inaccessible, such as server maintenance. However, when you are experiencing downtime on your website, there are a few ways you can turn it around and actually benefit from it.
