Preparing for High Traffic


Most businesses can anticipate high traffic periods for their websites. Events like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, holiday shopping, large sales, and more can lead to a massive influx of business for your site, possibly leading to a negative effect on how your site operates. This article can talk about how you can or should prepare for increased traffic with a BigCommerce site.

Preparing for a Traffic Increase

The good news is that if you're using BigCommerce, you likely won't have to worry about downtime or site errors in the event of high site traffic. BigCommerce acts as both the platform and the host for your website, and they pride themselves on having zero downtime over the last two holiday seasons. BigCommerce works with Google, one of the most reliable names in technology, for their hosting solutions, so you don't have to worry about a thing. You can also use BigCommerce's status page to double check how their services are performing, just in case.
