Default seasonal store closing

Store ID: 38990
Website URL: http://halloweencostumesfor2012.com
http://halloweencostumesfor2012.com/store

Hello,
I have a five store license which currently is all I can barely afford.
however I have two stores that I will not work with for the next nine month, because Halloween is over on the 31st this month.
using this scenario is there a way to park these two stores until August 1st, 2013 so that I can use my license for my other seasonal stores such as Christmas?

Michael

Hi,

Currently there is no way to "park" the stores.

Hi,

No, this is not possible as it makes it very easy to get around our membership plans. We may offer backup/restore functionality for Unlimited Store members in the future.

OK I'll figure it out but here is a much more important question along the same vein.
my main store partythemesforbirthday.com also has two satellites on facebook. for obvious reason one is http, the other https, well the http store took the token just fine and works as expected, the https however does not because my secure server is on a different grid. How can I overcome that? my whole store every page renders perfectly except the datafeedr portion. these are not three different stores, this is one store with three landingpages.

Hi,

I'm not sure what you mean by "my main store partythemesforbirthday.com also has two satellites on facebook".

Can you provide a link to the page that is not working?

that sounds a bit paranoid to me.
a seasonal store is a seasonal store and it makes absolutely no sense to keep a Halloween store open all year round, neither would it make sense to have a easter, valentines or st patricks store open year round. Most of us are pretty honest people who, as you, just try to earn a bit of money. are there some bad apples, of course, but after 50 years in business that is the cost of doing business.
as much as I like datafeedr, you are forcing me to look around to see if I can't find something similar that I can afford. I just cannot pay you the incremental cost to add one more store when two of my stores will not do anything for the next nine month.
And that is true, even though I consider you all the best at what you do.
Michael

Does your "Store" page still exist?

Also, can you please explain about your FB satellite comment?

Hi,

I understand your concern about money. However, we have to run our business the best we can.

I do, however, disagree with this. If you close down the store, you lose all indexing in the search engines of those pages. And in 9 months, you basically have to start from scratch to get those new store pages indexed again.

If you kept the stores live 12 months of the year, they would be able to move up in the SERPs instead of being completely removed from the SERPs.

the store page exists here http://partythemesforbirthday.com/store

Facebook now has given us the ability to create Facebook pages into which one may embed his complete website. I call that a satellite. However, 65% of Facebook visitors appear to use secure browsers, requiring and ssl certificate i.e. an https prefix. Facebook therefor requires that every page has an http and an https version.
I have a gridserver with numerous sites and one SSL which covers all my sites under

Does the "Store" WP Page exist on your GridServer blog, too?

there is no on "store" page on this site https://s155980.gridserver.com/https/partysite
on the http site I simply copied the datafeedr plugin over and it works like a charm, but when I tried to do that on https I get a message that the domain does not match.

Hi,

Of course there is going to be a domain mismatch. In the Factory you have set the domain name to: partythemesforbirthday.com.

If you want it to work on your gridserver, it would have to be set to: s155980.gridserver.com

The reason for the error you are getting on the https grid server is because the "Store" page is missing. Simply create a new page, name it "Store" and set the slug to "store". That should fix the issue.

Eric
