ATTENTION: Interesting scenario ahead!
We are in the process of redesigning our website and need to keep these integration requirements in mind:
1. Wordpress with Woocommerce
2. Apptivo (apptivo.com) [and many of its apps]
We basically need to use the WP site as the front branding and marketing through the blog. However the site's registration/login should also integrate with the data from Apptivo Apps called via their IP and use the same login for the client's WHCMS account.
Here are the concerns I need your help with:
1. If we connect/run the front and back end processes, due to the increase in the # of resources and database size, the site will become slow and will affect SEO and marketing.
2. Also if the front end goes down for any reason (maintenance,hackers,etc) the clients won't be able to access their account info.
3. I also do not want to send the client to 3 different places to log in and track their account, billing, support, etc. I'd like to keep things separate but seamlessly integrated.
> In order to avoid this I have seen many companies like "a2hosting.com" and "godaddy" have their main site under their domain, but once the client logs in they get redirected to a subdomain (my.godaddy.com).
I would like to know if this is a viable option based on the requirements and concerns presented. Also, if it is what are the PROS and CONS of doing this?
Moreover, are there any other possible solutions for this problem?
>> I know this is a large topic but I certainly welcome all of your support and ideas. Thanks
