nopCommerce Running Slow: Issue Solved

Martin OrtegaI have seen nopCommerce go from being a web application that just needed about 300 MB of RAM to being an application that requires a lot more memory just to be installed out of the box, much less run.

Doing a Google Search for “nopCommerce running slow” brings up a number of articles that show this problem to be widespread. Another issue people have is simply installing it and getting it to work on their current hosting service.

So how do we resolve these problems?

Everleap customer story Q&A with Pam Nelligan of Statdash

Michael PhillipsThis is an excerpt, the entire Q&A with Pam, as well as more customer stories, are available on our site.

Statdash is a task management progress tracker that allows you to see where your project stands in one dashboard. The solution employs an automated status request scheduler and activity notifications to eliminate the legwork usually needed to track down team members and find out the status of tasks and activities. We recently chatted with Pam Nelligan, Chief Software Architect and one of the co-founders of Statdash to learn more about her startup and how Everleap has fit into her growing business.

Everleap: Thanks for talking with us Pam. Tell us about yourself and your professional background.

Pam Nelligan: I’m a software developer and also a certified project manager. Software development has changed a lot since I started in 1991. It was a whole different world back then – no Internet per se and no development on the Internet. I worked for a software development company for 16 years and in 2007 went out on my own to be an independent contractor. When I left the company I was at, I decided to get into development on the Internet.



Introducing Private MongoDB hosting

Takeshi EtoI’m excited to announce the launch of Private MongoDB hosting at Everleap.

This new premium NoSQL solution will provide you with your own private MongoDB server. Your MongoDB databases will get access to all of the disk space, CPU and RAM on the virtual machine. And like our other hosting services, it is fully managed. We will handle all the server updates and security at no additional cost, freeing you to devote your time and resources to your website and applications rather than server maintenance.



Swiss-US Privacy Shield Certification Achieved

Takeshi EtoLast year we attained EU-US Privacy Shield Certification and the policy update included legacy Swiss-US Safe Harbor language. But earlier this year, a new Swiss-US Privacy Shield  Framework was approved. And on April 12th, the US Department of Commerce started accepting applications for the new Swiss-US Privacy Shield framework.

Privacy Shield FrameworkThere are some differences between the EU-US Privacy Shield and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield frameworks. We worked with our privacy management solutions partner, Truste, to make sure that our privacy policies and practices meet the requirements of both frameworks. So I am happy to announce that we have attained Swiss-US Privacy Shield Certification.

 



Everleap customer story Q&A with Pete Wlodkowski of AmateurGolf.com

Michael PhillipsThis is an excerpt, the entire Q&A with Pete, as well as more customer stories, are available on our site.

Founded in 2000, AmateurGolf.com is a website created for avid golfers who aren’t pros, connecting them to the pulse of the competitive amateur game. The site’s main focus is its directory of golf tournaments, a database of around 2,000 events per year. We recently chatted with founder Pete Wlodkowski to learn more about the site and his move to Everleap.

Everleap: Thanks for talking with us Pete. First off, could you tell us a little more about yourself and your professional background?

Pete Wlodkowski: I came to the business from a technology sales and marketing background. While I’m a non-techie and not a programmer, I got experience in the tech world working with a few different organizations, including a software company. It was here that I learned about websites, how they operate and how customers use them.

Takeshi EtoWe have introduced a new tool to add SQL users to the Managed SQL section of Control Panel.

But…Managed SQL it isn’t called Managed SQL anymore. Now it’s Private SQL.

We recently introduced Private MySQL, and for the sake of consistency (and descriptiveness) we changed Managed SQL to Private SQL.



HTTPS on Everleap

Michael PhillipsWe recently published an article over on the DiscountASP.NET blog entitled, “https: who needs it?“, and it talks about all of the compelling reasons to implement HTTPS (via an SSL certificate) on your website. The tl;dr summary of that article is: You really need to implement HTTPS at your earliest convenience. Or maybe even before it’s convenient.

So yes, everyone needs to use https, and that includes us. We’ve gone through the Everleap website and made all the necessary changes, including forcing connections that come in on port 80 – normal HTTP connections – to HTTPS. You may have noticed we did the same on this blog, and our forum as well.
