This is the largest Sequim Real Estate Blog, not only in the Sequim and Port Angeles area, but one of the largest in the entire Northwest. With thousands of articles written for buyers, and hundreds of key links to valuable information you won’t find anywhere else, plus unique tools designed and programmed for buyers, plus entire books written just for buyers, it’s no surprise that this Sequim real estate site is popular. Millions of people read this blog every year, and while they’re not all moving to the Sequim area, many are planning to. But did you know that hackers from China and elsewhere often try to get into this site and take it down, which would prevent you from having access to all these great resources?
In an earlier article I wrote, “What does it take to survive and maintain this site for you and other buyers? It takes old fashioned hard work, thousands of hours of work over the past seven years, a wheel barrel full of money on software, security, and expertise, and literally seven days a week from early in the morning to late at night (often past midnight). It requires security on several levels. It requires constant updates on software, and it means keeping up on the latest defenses against viruses and malware. We’ve had to become experts on the techniques that hackers use to control a site, how they get in the back door, and what vulnerabilities they look for, and there are many. This Sequim real estate blog must be kept absolutely clean so it doesn’t infect any of its users. It also means keeping backup copies on site and off site just in case the site is taken down. Service providers must be reliable 24/7 and must have their own security. The sweat and stress involved in protecting and maintaining this site would surprise most people if they knew all that is involved.”
