A False Economy

Recently I was helping a mate whose client had had their web site hacked. I pointed out that using a host who only charges $80p/a for hosting (and makes claims about how cheap they are in their own name) probably wasn’t a great idea if they wanted to make sure their site was secure. He went back to them and suggested a new host to stop it happening again.

“Oh no, that’s way too expensive for our web site.” they said.

Guess what.

Two weeks later their super cheap host has been hacked again and their website is down again.

The company is all about maximising their customer’s wealth. Seems they have a little to learn about the difference between cost and value.
