How to Choose The Region of Your Server During Checkout

Arvixe is proud to announce a new featured available during the checkout process for our PersonalClass, BusinessClass, ResellerClass, and VPSClass hosting plans. The new feature allows you to choose the region of your server at no additional cost! Currently, you have the ability to choose between two regions, the United States and Europe, during the third step of the checkout process. We have received many requests for this feature and we are pleased to offer it to our customers.

We expect a lot of demand for our EU data center. Because of this demand we’re working hard to offer the ability to select regions for all hosting plans in the near future! If you’re an existing customer and would like to change the location of your account please contact our 24/7 support team by either phone or live chat.

To choose the region of your server during checkout you’ll need to follow these simple steps when setting up your hosting account:

  1. Click the ‘Order Now‘ button on the hosting plan you wish to purchase
  2. Order PersonalClass

  3. Choose the term length of your hosting plan
  4. Order PersonalClass

  5. Log in to existing account or register as a new customer
  6. Order PersonalClass

  7. Fill out your billing information and click ‘Create Billing Account’
  8. Order PersonalClass

  9. Choose your domain, transfer domain, or point existing domain
  10. Order PersonalClass

  11. Select United States or Europe from the dropdown menu
  12. Order PersonalClass

The Arvixe team hopes that you enjoy this new feature and we look forward to hearing your positive feedback!

OpenCart – Boosting Store Performance

How to boost overall store performance

We hear it time and time again on the forums. As a customer support agent on the Opencart forums I get a close up of the most common questions/problems that new store owners face after downloading Opencart and installing it. One of the major topics is the number of people that are unhappy with the way their store is performing on the web. Let me clarify: we are talking about server performance in how it relates to the customer shopping experience, not SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Often times store owners are very surprised at the load times on certain pages or all pages…and their customers may be complaining as well.  Let’s be honest, the WORST thing that you could possible do is introduce your online store to the WWW and have it so miserable to visit that no one comes back and your business “as a result of this” fails. Hopefully this article will help you understand some of the basic actions to perform in optimizing your Opencart.

Add a New Zone in ocPortal

add new ocPortal ZoneZones are a key element to the structure of any ocPortal built website and are a great way of sectioning off your content into different areas. For example a games related website might have a zone for PC games, one for Xbox games another for PS3 and so on. A business site may have sections dedicated to the different spheres of influence it deals with. A zone will traditionally have a URL similar to this:- if you have set up the new style Short URLS. Adding a new zone is a fairly simple process which I will show below.
