Great article – thanks so much for sharing.

We personally use ImageOptim and TinyPNG.

Here’s from our experience:

TinyPNG saves heaps of filesize and is our first tool of choice. Sometimes however it “distorts” images so just be sure to compare the original and compressed versions. If the compressed version is A-OK then roll with it. (95% of the time it’s good to go)

When TinyPNG does indeed distort an image then we turn to ImageOptim. The filesize won’t be quite as small but you’ll still get some savings and the image is sure to be exact quality as the original.

Cheers :)

Hi There,

If you’re not planning on tons of traffic and looking for reliable, affordable service, we highly recommend BlueHost. (approx. $90 for a year of service)

If you’re looking for something with a lot more power, and the ability to expand in the future, we highly recommend a DV4 server from MediaTemple. (1GB minimum, approx. $100 per month)

We use both on a daily basis and have never had any major issues with either server.

I hope this helps :)

Cheers.

Words of Wisdom:

Do not try to be better than your predecessors or your peers, just simply try to be a better you.

What does being a “better” author really mean anyway?

Do not seek happiness or fulfillment in man-made things, for they will always leave you feeling empty.

Trust me in these words: Becoming “the best author” will most definitely leave you feeling unfulfilled and wanting more.

Blessings Everyone

I noticed a major increase lately. I’ve been reporting about 2 comments a day it seems.

Yes same here.

Does the domain name has the word “custom” in it ?

Hi Der,

I know this thread is a few months old but we’re running into the same issue and the domain does indeed have the word “custom” in it.

Any advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Blessings.

Thanks a lot guys for the kind words. I really appreciate it.

As per any CU3ER questions, you can purchase a ‘template license’ through the cu3er sales team for approx $990 US.

Also not that I care that much, but in response to some of the cu3er flaming, about 90% of our customers are using jquery2 homepage template. Most users don’t even use cu3er.

Thanks again everyone. We really appreciate all the support. We have much respect for all of the talent here on Themeforest. We wish everyone great fortune on all future endeavors.

Blessings from the US.

Well, your theme is probably the fastest sellling single theme by now but the leading record for most sales in one month belongs to someone else :)

Very cool. Yes that’s what I was curious about, just the record for a single theme’s 1 month sales. All the Glory goes to God.

I wish everyone well wishes on all future endeavors.

Blessings from the US.
