So i was browsing facebook a couple of weeks a go and a small business has a facebook page and i noticed their online store was down i sent the owner a message on their facebook page telling them their website is down and ask if they are aware of it.
i got a response saying yes they are aware of it and that their so called "cousin" is working on their website i am not to sure on how much business they are losing but its been a couple of weeks as they are not sure on how long it will take to be fully functional and live.
i said to them i can offer assistant with the website and they told me they will contact and let me know.
what i dont understand is why would a small business owner take down a website and have it display nuthing but a 404 error page.im sure they could of left the current design and website online while the new design and online store being update.
what is the next step as i am not sure on how much business they are losing from having their website down like this.
