This article presents the author's comments on the importance of back-up systems for business Web sites. The author says that if an agency whose Web server went down, resulting in the loss of its clients' Web site. The host was not backed-up and neither was some of the agency's clients on the host's servers. With this scenario, the agency would be back to square one, having to produce the site from scratch. The agency productivity and the client Web site would be down for hours or worse, days. Having an automated back-up system on a continuous basis is one of the best ways to prevent the fore mentioned example.
