Hi, This is Alexey from Simtech Development. Let’s see what news we have about our add-ons in the second part of January 2019.
 

News

 
Full-Page Cache by Varnish 5+ appeared to be the most popular of our add-ons. Considering this we’d like to advise you about the main conditions for using the add-on one more time.
This add-on is not similar to other add-ons because it affects the whole ecosystem of a store including the server part. That will not be enough to install and activate Varnish in the CS-Cart admin panel. Technical skills are required to configure the settings correctly. We will provide you with it.
 
The price of the add-on includes:

  1. Estimation of the add-on applicability;
  2. Add-on installation;
  3. Environment set-up;
  4. Code and server analysis;
  5. Recommendations for code optimization before installing and enabling the add-on.

 

Please also note!

The add-on is worth considering in case:

  • Your e-store is not under development. It is up and running. And your goal is to improve it.
  • You’ve got an exact development copy of your e-store for testing.

 
The add-on will NOT fit you if:

  • The e-store has not been yet released.
  • You consider the add-on as a cure-all solution.

 
Additionally, there is a special offer regarding the Varnish add-on from the AWS Cloud Hosting team. Take a look.
