Ballyhoo Disaster Recovery Service

If your website has been hacked or experienced an outage or security breach, you can rely on Ballyhoo to help you get your website operating as soon as possible. We have the know-how to identify and resolve your issues, and, crucially, prevent them from happening again.

What is Disaster Recovery (DR)?

Disaster recovery is the process of eliminating threats and mitigating outcomes. Our website disaster recovery service allows you to get your website back up and running, should the worst happen.

Examples of website disasters include:

  • Malicious entities (hacking, trojan horses)
  • Human error
  • System glitches

If your website is hacked or unavailable, you should contact us as soon as possible. We will evaluate your issues, investigate to find a fix and get your website back up and running.

Depending on your circumstances we may recommend:

  • Restoring a ‘safe’ backup of the site while issues are resolved (if available)
  • Transferring your hosting and DNS
  • Updating your website platform and any critical plugins
  • Temporarily revoking third-party access via APIs and plugins

In a worst case scenario we will recommend taking your website down completely while fixes are implemented.

What are the impacts of a hacked website?

Should your website go down for a prolonged period of time, it can negatively affect your business due to customers not being able to purchase online or get in contact with you.

In addition to short-term availability issues, website downtime can also negatively affect your reputation and customer trust, which can result in high costs for your business as you recover.

What’s more, if Google detects malware on your website, they may block you from being searchable and web browsers may display warning messages to would-be visitors. Only once a site is functioning again properly can we request that Google re-evaluates your site so it can rank again in search results.
