The costs of installing floating floors might be higher but the actual time taken for installing the floor is fairly short and can be done by alm
(c) by Daria WinklerWe do believe in healthy sense of paranoia. Not the paranoia,which makes us feverishly try to distinguish ourselves from ourcompetitors, but the paranoia, which makes us feel the iron handof competition and gives us the stimulus to constantly developand improve.It is difficult to survive in the media, where everybody claimshe is the best and where somebody is indeed better than you. Itprompted us the idea of carrying out a kind of analysis of theproducts offered on the Web, similar to Esvon Classifieds. In noshape of form, we are going to judge or criticize the webapplications, listed below.The search engine has brought us to the following softwareproducts:http://www.interactivetools.com/products/realtymanager/The first impression is that Realty Manager is quite aprofessional solution. Scanning the pages, and studying thisproduct more carefully we learn that the script is realizedusing Perl and text files and its functionality is really worthbeing paid for. PHP/MySQL and Perl ext files solutions donthave any distinction in kind when it comes to theirfunctionality. But PHP code is more consistent and modular andit runs faster. The advantage of PHP is also the ubiquity of webserver platforms supporting PHP and MySQL. Fact: Over 25% of theinternet's web sites are running PHP and nearly 63% of theinternet's web sites are running the Apache web server, so giveit a thought.Those, who have encountered the problem of a script runningslowly, probably know, that the faster grows your database ofusers, the slower your script works. In the end, it just breaks.(it happens because it is based on text files). Thus, suchsolution can be used only when the web site you are going tobuild is simple.Moreover, with their license you are not allowed to editscripts; it can be a disaster for you when you want to customizeyour solution.The web site itself is very informative; it seems to give theoverall description of the application. In general, thissoftware script is enough if your web portal needs dont go far.Yet, it is quite simple and friendly but has much fewerfunctions than Esvon Classfieds does.http://www.mojoscripts.com/products/mojoestate/index.shtmlThe web site layout and the product presentation resemble a bitthe previous one. The application is Perl/MySQL solution, whichhowever costs less. The price, as we have already indicated, isnot a No.1 factor for making decision. But $199 seemsnevertheless too little for a powerful script with tons offeatures.MojoEstate includes a lot of features: internal mailbox system,saved search system, multimedia file gallery, advanced admin andmember panels, powerful search facility, detailed who-is-onlinedisplay, auto-generated thumbnails for uploaded images, etc.We wont enumerate all the product features, described at theweb site. When a visitor reads the content, it is often enoughfor him to know what is described. But developers and morecompetent users know that its just a surface. When it comes tothe product in action, they might face with the problem ofhandling extreme amounts of traffic the database queries, whichcan bring your server down. Some customers just may skip thispeculiarity.The product is also presented in a well-structured manner andseems to be a good cost-effective solution for budget-mindedpeople.http://www.smartisoft.com/products.php?product=phpBazarWe see that the script manufacturers have preferred PHP code inthis case. As we have already mentioned, we also consider it tobe better for such kind of applications in view of its opensource technology and the fact that it is firmly implanted inthe LAMP family (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) of open source webdevelopment platform technologies.The given page describes the product features. It is a long anddetailed five-scroll list. The demo is actually well presented,yet has an erotic shadow. If you are looking for a PHP script tobuild exactly this kind of web portal, then you are all set. Butif you are in search for a program, say, for a real estate site,such demo confuses a bit Driven by common sense you get backand click I am not over 18. I was a bit taken aback when I wasredirected to a disney web site.http://www.e-classifieds.net/products/index.htmlWe should surmise that this solution looks professional. Theabundant choice of editions is a good prove to it. Still, theresearches show, that the bigger the selection is, the moredifficult it is to make a decision. And it is really so. Say,you decide that you need one solution and proceed to thefollowing edition to make sure you did not skip the featuresthat are necessary to your online business. And it turns outthat you did. You change the decision. While you proceed to thethird one, you might discover that it has the features of thesecond edition, but lacks for the features of the first. Youfeel frustrated.Yet, you can see the demo of every edition directly withoutfilling in any web form before it. It contributes to the website popularity and makes the product more available.The script is also realized using Perl and text files and thecustomer support of the manufacturer costs $75 - $100 per hour.Maybe this rate is the confirmation that the company reallyguarantees an irreproachable performance of their product, andyou wont have to refer to them too often; but support isrequired more often than you might think, since the situationsdiffer.http://www.esvon.com/products/cl/Of course, we do pay attention to what the program looks like,but its internal mechanism does play a great role. The Esvonspecialists have seen to this. You cant see it, but you can besure Esvon Classifieds script runs well and allows you to avoidthe typical problems, the web applications owners mightencounter.The well thought out and powerful script, its modularity andflexibility are the best qualities distinguished by ourcustomers. It is difficult, however, to judge ourselves, thus,we will enumerate the features, which were marked by ourcustomers as practically unique in comparison to other similarsolutions: - Static HTML pages generation allows you to have the fast web site, indexed in search engines by more keywords and much more accessible to web surfers. - The script allows you to handle much more site traffic/visitors queries, then other existing applications; the fast running PHP code is also marked as an important peculiarity of the program. Just as an example, Esvon Classifieds has unique category tree building engine: it is very fast, with only 2 SQL queries to build an unlimited-level category tree with ads amount per category calculation; it will ensure you that your server wont be brought down by amount of database queries executed!While we were preparing this article, we received one more emailfrom our customer, where he compares our product withGeoClassifieds(http://geodesicsolutions.com/products/index.htm), and marks thefollowing features as award winning in Esvon Classifieds:template system, Gd or imagemagick thumbnail images, very goodsupport, reviews writing and voting, blocks engine, absolutelycustom database fields settings.http://geodesicsolutions.com/products/index.htmGeoDesic product features are very attractive. Here it is: thecase, when you should go deeper. A typical user can claim thatit doesnt matter, whats inside; it just should work and dowhat he expects from it. But the deeper approach reveals, thatthe script is not able to process properly growing databasequeries, its templates are not very flexible, it runs slow andit is unable to generate static content.Using such script you take risk to be very soon removed from theshared web server, since your traffic might exceed the maximumallowed server load limit very quickly.Thus, be meticulous while choosing the script fro your onlinebusiness.We hope, that this analysis has contributed to your knowledge ofwhat you are looking for on the Web. In the end, you decide, wejust help you to see deeper; we hope that we do.About the Author:Daria Winkler is Co-founder and Principal of Esvon LLC (http://www.esvon.com/)information technology company, providing cost effective software development and outsourcing services to our clients and professional classified ads software for website owners.
