Please understand that this is not just a generic "template" for Zen Cart - this is a UNIQUE template made exclusively for your online store/catalog. If you just need a template and want to consume the time installing the shopping cart, installing the template, making changes to the code, learning the template system, and configuring up the store yourself, please do a search for Zen Cart templates on your preferred search engine.
I can register your domain for you and I would be happy to host your store on my dedicated server. I offer my customers reasonable hosting fees, in case you prefer to have that service with us. My server is never overloaded, security and upgrade is a constant procedure, backups are regularly done, and downtime is minimum.
5 Reasons Big Stores go Mobile-Only and not Responsive!
Responsive design is a great choice for mobile, but not the only option for mobile-friendly SEO.
- Google just wants your site to be mobile-optimized. They don’t care how you approach it;
- On an existing, large, very complex or legacy desktop web site, RWD (Responsive Web Design) can be extremely costly to implement;
- Light payload for small mobile devices often favors Mobile Only;
- Completely different content on mobile devices can be difficult to achieve using RWD;
- People have lots of different opinions on this topic.
