#132294 Australian Webhosting for CS-Cart

Posted by JesseLeeStringer on 28 February 2012 - 11:40 PM

Hi All,

Since I've moved back to Australia I've had a difficult time finding suitable server hosting that is engineered for high-traffic websites, specifically those suitable for CS-Cart. I've looked at options online and quite simply they are both expensive and respectively slow. A few companies I considered were not hosted in Australia, residing in US/HK datacenters. (MelbourneIT.com.au / Rackspace.com.au respectively.)

I've since found what I consider to be a suitable, Australian based datacentre that I'm most likely going to host Australian clients.

For Australian / NZ residents, answers to the following questions would be greatly appreciated.

#1) Is your website experiencing issues with latency?
ie: 200ms + pings to your domain

#2) Would you be willing to pay a premium to more resources on the server?
ie: 20 clients max per dedicated server

#3) For the most part, are you capable of administrating your own website, without assistance?
ie: "You" manage CS-Cart, "I" manage the server

To ensure everyone is on the same page - I'm considering offering shared-hosting accounts on the (read:my) server, limited to 20 total accounts.

Any questions would be appreciated, your current host would also be great in case they can provide a similar product.

Regards,
Jesse-Lee Stringer


#131919 CS-Cart 3 RC Released

Posted by JesseLeeStringer on 23 February 2012 - 11:33 PM

Unfortunately, I don't agree on this. You can choose to go with the 2.2.4 or 1.3.5 etc but we do pay and upgrade for our subscription to get more features/abilities/ any kind of improvements.


It's the cost of business, there will always be a cost for a $300 shopping cart.

#119754 Google Suddenly Dropped My Product Listing Pages. Help!

Posted by JesseLeeStringer on 18 August 2011 - 02:47 AM

Not entirely Google's/Sno's fault either.

1) You've mis-linked your products above so no backlinks for you
2) http://pagespeed.goo...ml&mobile=false
43/100 ain't good at all.
3) Look at the source code of your website and you'll notice the following.
I assume that it's something to do with shipping, however there is too much Code to Content (C2C) resulting in google penalizing you. (Content is kind, not redundant HTML code!)

<h1 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">FREE SHIPPING On All Orders $150 And Above! Free Return Shipping!<br /></span></strong></h1>

#40447 How to disable ssl

Posted by JesseLeeStringer on 18 November 2008 - 10:14 PM

Hi Louwie,

You'll need to edit the database to "turn off" the SSL in administration checkbox

Run this in PHPMyAdmin if you have access to it

REPLACE INTO `cscart_settings` (`option_id`, `option_name`, `section_id`, `subsection_id`, `option_type`, `value`, `position`, `is_global`) VALUES
(10004, 'secure_admin', 'General', '', 'C', 'N', 2, 'Y');

#10808 Invoice number to zero

Posted by JesseLeeStringer on 08 February 2007 - 03:24 AM

Have ou tried

AdminCp // Settings // General // Initial order ID value

I'm not sure if that will work to reset invoices or not


This works fine for me, it will erase all prior invoices from memory,
regardless of that it's a virgin site so shouldn't matter to you at all?
