Ivan Arnaudov is a small business owner from Sofia, Bulgaria. He operates three small e-commerce web stores since 2009. He is responsible for all aspects of every day operation, but enjoys most the technical side of things. Starting with shared hosting, he switched to VPS and ended up running everything on a bare-metal server he has configured and maintains by himself.
Under the brand Webstage, Ivan advises other small businesses like his own on usability (e.g. UI/UX assessment, or integrations with 3rd parties that automate some business tasks and eliminate errors in various processes), and tech-related issues. Occasionally, he builds entire websites, or supervises the building process on behalf of the customer, when the project is delegated to a 3rd party developer.
Ivan has extensive knowledge on how WordPress/WooCommerce and OpenCart operate, and uses his skills and experience to improve page loading times, increase reliability and scale them to match the influx of visitors.
Some customers also hire Ivan to take care of regular server / website maintenance (software updates, regular backup procedures, uptime monitoring, disaster recovery).
Because most of Ivan’s customers are in Bulgaria (he is himself Bulgarian), his company website is in Bulgarian. Click here to browse it in English via a reasonably good translation service courtesy of Google that slightly breaks styling (sigh).
