- Security issues.
There is a problem with the internet connectivity you need a minimum 1Gbps internet speed to run the website smoothly when you run a website you will see there are lots of real-time visitors that need your website to work smoothly and load fast so you need maximum uploading speed to download that content in your visitor’s device fastly.
There is a problem with PC you need a server CPU and maximum ram when you run a website you will see there are lots of visitors you need more ram to save more storage or cache at the same time so your visitor doesn’t want to wait more and more and the main problem is cooling on this condition cpu generates more heat which is not good we need to cool that so on that condition we need water cooling.
The problem with pc electricity connection yo needs all-time pc to keep working there are lots of visitors on your website if they any visitors see the website is not working so on that condition your visitor go to another website or get a bad impression for your website if your website id down for more than a minute the google will drank from google search which can lose lots of visitors.
