You manage your e-shop in the administration - you fill out products, graphics, process orders, settings, etc. This part is hidden to the customer, it is only for the users of the administration.
Adress coud be e.g.: PROJECT-NAME.admin.SERVER.upgates.com
Visible to the customer on the frontend - you can check it with the eye icon in the top bar from the administration section.
Web part could be double type:
Test version - running project on project-name.upgates.com. Customers will not get to the test version unless you send them a URL. The content of the search engine is not indexed. In this version, the graphics are edited and then switched into production version.
Production version - paid version on your own domain. Customers are allowed to shop, browsing, etc. Content is indexed to the search engines.
The changes made within the administration are displayed on the e-shop immediately, both in the test version and in the production version. For full-text search only, the content is indexed once per hour. Data import and export are also performed at certain time intervals.
