Default X-cart Speed Booster!

Pre-order Now and save 25% - Good until March 8th at 11PM EST

http://www.bcsengineering.com/store/images/T/xcart_speed_booster.png

The most exciting new module out there! Speed up your site and optimize for SEO all in the same module! Also works with CDSEO!

Our newest module X-cart Speed Booster will boost your X-cart speed! It creates a caching utility to cache your pages for quick HTML speed websites! Complete with 'hole-punching' utilities to still keep dynamic content (like the mini-cart) into your cached website, as well as instructions on how to create your own hole-punched dynamic content!

As an added bonus, the X-cart Speed Booster module also can create SEO friendly URL's or use CDSEO's URL's!

Expected release date is March 29th.

We currently have a site running this same technology with over 540,000 products! Their home page load time with this module is between 0.5 - 0.9 seconds! Without this module, their home page load time is about 20-40+ seconds!

Tests with sites that have only 180 products have speeds that are 3 times faster with this module!

Get ahead of your competition by boosting your speed and make the search engines even happier with a much quicker site!

This module has tiered pricing based upon the number of links on your site (categories, products, manufacturers, static pages). Purchase only what you need and easily upgrade to more pages later if needed. Most eCommerce sites can run on the default 500 pages or the next tier up of 5,000 pages. Select the number of Site Pages appropriate for your website! If you happen to go over your page limit, the mod will still work, it just won't cache the additional pages.

Includes a cron script you can set up to create the cache automatically nightly.

EASY INSTALL Only edit .htaccess and an sql patch so this module won't effect future X-Cart upgrades!

Contact Us If you don't see your X-cart version listed and you want it for your version!

NOTE: Requires apache mod_rewrite. As always, a properly sized web server is needed for optimal results. These speed improvements are purely from the mod without additional tweaks to the web server or X-cart.



See screenshots on our product page.
Demo coming soon!

Yes we'll try to have a few kinds of demo stores soon. Just waiting on the latest CDSEO from Jon so we can fully test that feature and should be releasing by March 8th. It's pretty much done, just some final testing.

We'll try to have a demo next week. I'm not sure if our client that has over 540,000 products would want to be advertised on our product page. He might though. I'll ask. That would be a good way to see just how fast it is.

Carrie,

How will this mod work with a CDN?
If the CDN is handing images and cached css and cached js, what is the mod going to do with the CDN edge servers?
Is it either/or?

Thx
J

How does the mod handle inventory levels (including for variants)? If a variant reaches a 0 stock level, does the cached product page get updated immediately, or does it wait until the cron runs?

Thanks

Hi Jeremy,

Well it curl's X-cart to get the data for the cache. So the CDN would be just used for dynamic pages and for when it's creating the cache.

Does that answer your question?

Thanks,

Carrie

Hi,

It would update on next cron, or the nice thing about it, is you can create a 'hole-punch' for the inventory so that part is dynamic. So if you have a part of your website that is important to be dynamic, you can still have it be yet still benefit from the speed of the rest being 'static' or a 'snapshot'.

We may expand to triggers for specific pieces to be refreshed. We do that for this 540,000+ product site. We can specifically request certain pieces to refresh. But I think that will be a future feature unless there is great demand for it and we can fit it in before the release date.

Thanks,

Carrie

Thanks, Carie. It may be a feature request only for the kinds of shops that have limited inventory, and they want the pages updated immediately when the items go out of stock. (With the minicart being dynamic, it might not matter too much if the product page itself does not have on-demand inventory updates.)

The mod looks interesting - thanks!

Default Re: X-cart Speed Booster!

We float between 1000 and 2000 unique products where the inventory is always a maximum of 1 and when it's sold it's gone. If the inventory is "hole-punched" will the product pages still be cached or will they have to be dynamic?

Will Jon's xCMS pages be cached or will they be dynamic?

How does this work with X-Cart's Mobile Mod?

We really want this mod and the $375 sale price is not a problem but if all our product pages and xCMS pages are still dynamic I'm not sure we would benefit.

Help Please

How this mod differs from the old (still included in XC) html catalog? The html catalog generates static html pages which have to be re-generated on every change. This mod uses cached pages, again static, which have to be re-generated again when there is a change... or to refresh contents, quantity, etc.

With the html catalog the whole site is static html site and when customer gets to cart it turns dynamic.

Does this mod works the same way or only some parts are static? Seems to me it does work the same way or very similar.

Or am I understanding how the mod works wrong?
