Black Friday is back!
Black Friday, the biggest online shopping event of the year is back!
You've done the hard work, worked out your discounts, prepared your graphics, blogged, signed up for a myriad of partner web sites to help direct traffic back to your site to help boost sales.
But have you checked whether your site will actually stand up to the extra traffic coming through the door?
To ensure we are ready for your customers to come barging through your doors the hosting team at VPCart have been busy as beavers beefing up the infrastructure behind the scenes to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day.
If you are not hosting with us then it might be worth a quick email to your host to make sure they have got everything ready. They probably are but better safe than sorry!
The same goes if you are running your own dedicated server. When you run your own server you are responsible for ensuring it is spec'ed just right. If you have a VM then it is generally just a matter of adding some RAM and maybe a few extra cores if you are expecting a LOT of traffic to make sure you wont have any unwelcome issues on the day.
So go forth and start selling safe in the knowledge that we've got your back to make sure that the big day will go exactly as you planned, and, hopefully even bigger than expected!
