Getting your store up is a process. One which starts with a revelation that, if you want to make things work in the long run, you’ll need a webshop.

In their effort to improve security on the web, Google has been, for some time now, steadily pushing their “HTTPS everywhere” initiative. Besides providing better security for end user by encrypting all traffic between server and browser, HTTPS will most likely be used as a ranking signal. Another interesting fact is that starting from January 2017, Chrome will use icon in the address bar to mark HTTP pages that collect passwords or credit cards as non-secure, as a part of the long-term plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure. We can assume that other browsers will adapt this behaviour in the future.
In this blog post, we will cover basic configuration required to run your Magento shop over HTTPS and we will look at some common pitfalls and gotchas.Read more

Building a web shop on Magento is challenging. When you see a feature that looks “so simple that you could do it”, it was usually not as simple to build it as you think. To create that “simple” thing designer had to spend a great amount of time finding the right solution. After all, creating a feature which draws on that kind of comment means translating something very unorganized and complex to something simple and understandable. On the other hand, developer had to spend a lot of hours translating that solution into code. Designer and developer can find that beautiful solution by communicating, which is crucial in this case.
