The site supports flexible control of content and functionality access levels through the “role and right” system. Administrator's area allows to configure all functionality and site content in one line mode.
Commercial success is expected. It takes places due careful consideration of monetization throughout the entire development cycle. We have carefully analyzed the marked and tailored appropriate solutions like:
