Please recommend a website platform

Hello all!

I would be really thankful if you could recommend me some website platform for my website.

I manage a mid-sized hotel and I want to be able to accept reservation through the website. So, please share your ideas and tips if you've had an experience with something similar.

This is one of those well done systems.

I suggest you hit up hotels.com and get yourself listed and chat with them about how to integrate with their world.

In reply to: Hmm...

A website platform (say, Linux with Apache and PHP and Laravel) is what a web application runs on and is written in. I think you're searching for a web application first before thinking about the platform and the host to run it.

Hello , I think Linux with Apache and PHP and wordpress is best platform for website designing but if you go for Eccomerce website you should go for Magento or shopify and cube card.

Your own URL + Wordpress : that's it

Personally I would go for Wordpress. Most widely supported, easy to get people who can set it up for you. Also easy to get a variety of plugins for including various features, quite often free! We are just building a boutique travel site. And mightily happy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
