We started by building a new website that we over the years also rebuilt when newer technologies were available. The current page is built with Yootheme Pro and uses many different layout elements. In addition, we have built a specially developed booking system where you can see which cabins are available during which periods.
Each cottage also has its own place on the page with info, facts, photos and free periods. Through OpenStreetMap (free Google Maps option) we also present the location of the cottage.
In order for the site to go fast and be able to handle many visitors, we have also taken care of the hosting.
To run this project, we basically installed a web server on CentOS - which is our favorite OS! Instead of Apache we run here Nginx which is slightly better when there is a lot of traffic and visitors. PHP 7.3 and the latest MariaDB database provide a stable and reliable foundation.
Of course, the server has a backup to our backup servers so no information can be lost.
The site has proven to be very effective and has also been continuously expanded with new smart features to help visitors quickly find a cabin that suits them. The site has also steadily increased the number of cottages and there will be more and more private cottage owners who want to join the system.
