What is Downtime?
Unter Ausfallzeit versteht man den Zeitraum, in dem eine Website ganz oder teilweise nicht erreichbar ist.
A visitor trying to access a site that is down will receive a message like ‘This page isn’t working’.
However, the visitor can access a partially down site but cannot interact with the site. For example, they will be unable to leave comments on the site.
A downtime could result from human error, server issues, software incompatibility, or malicious attacks that overload the server. A sudden increase in traffic to your site will also overload your server, leading to downtime.
