As most of you know by now, EPautos got badly hacked the other day. Dom spent the better part of Saturday recovering data, fixing corrupted files and getting us back up. This was the second time in a month we’ve been hacked.
Without Dom, EPautos would be dea-uhd.
Which prompted this question from one of the regulars here:
“Dom, how much does it cost to have one of those monitoring services do the grunt work to protect the site from attacks?”
We are looking into this.
The problem, of course, is that there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. It will no doubt cost us something – we hope not too much – to have automatic/full-time monitoring. We’re also going to be doing back-ups of the entire site much more often – as a “just in case.”
We’re trying to balance everything, post-Google.
So far, we have acquired one new advertiser – the precious metal dealer on the top right of the main page. We’d very much like to get some additional advertisers – so if you know anyone at a business that might be interested, please let them know and have them get in touch with us.
Meanwhile, we’re still dependent on reader support. Please pass the word on that, too.
Throw us a few bucks, if you can – if you like what goes on here.
Here’s the link to our donate button.
Remember: Clover’s got unlimited time – and resources.
We, unfortunately, do not!
