    It is different when the business has other people, but for those who do it all themselves, just curious, who all has a plan? You have the password for your servers, your clients, maybe their domains… You are hit by a bus. Gone tomorrow…. What happens to their sites? Who do they contact. Who reaches out to them? Myself, for most of my work, even though I setup and maintain sites/VPS/registration for clients, everything is in their names, and even though they never use them, they do have saved somewhere the information, along with the name/number/email for a friend who taught me a lot of what I know about hosting, who knows I gave them his # and let them know he will help them if they need it. This person also has root password for the VPS I use to host a couple small sites, and since he would get contacted if something happened to me anyhow, he could reach out to the 2 that are not personal friends. And of course, there is the script I put in place 17 years ago, when I also did a will and other legal papers prior to a major surgery. My browser’s home page is a particular page on my server. If I go a week without it getting hit, it e-mails several people I trust. It gives them a link to “snooze” for another week. If no one snoozes it, a week later many people get farewell emails. Kinda morbid… but they know I’m that much of a geek LOL That though is all personal contact and messages, but have considered adding a business set to give a reminder of who to contact if they need help with their sites. – by hq overview greg8872 – –
