Your best allies for the optimum performance of your online shop can be the operating system, the browser and the screen resolution. Did you know that more than 75% of online customers in the world use Google Chrome or Firefox*? In this blog post we will give you some tips on the best ways to access and use your ePages back office and your online shop.

During the holiday season especially, many shop operators are worried whether their shop will be able to handle the expected stampede of visitors. At peak times, the systems have to process many more customers than usual. In the worst case, the shops become so slow that customers leave and go to other vendors. In the past, online merchants had to provide for additional hardware for ensuring reserve power to handle these situations. However, today, the cost factor can be calculated much more accurately since computing power can be added quite easily "on the fly". This trend is called "Cloud Computing" - managing data and applications on the Internet instead of keeping these on own servers. Besides demand-driven performance, data security and data availability are clear advantages of the concept. ePages already relies on Cloud Computing.

You've got your shop set up, the design works, products have also been created but the shop could still load just a little bit faster? The pages of the shop view (storefront) are arranged "dynamically" in the shop setup phase and the call of a page thus takes longer because all the elements to be displayed have to be repeatedly stored on the server before they can be displayed. Now you can make your shop faster using the optimisation/ page cache function.
