The portal cottages-for-holidays.com was originally created as a project that told about the suburban accommodation in the countries of former Soviet Union. In October 2007, it entirely changed its design and content. Changes in the design and the structure of the project cottages-for-holidays.com were implemented with the help of an improved version of Principal Solutions CMS. Due to the innovations, a standard informational site, which cottages-for-holidays.com used to be, turned into a fully-fledged portal, the main topic of which became vacation rentals. Cottages-for-holidays.com has become one of the projects, which demonstrates the effectiveness of Principal Solutions CMS and its module for data import in the format of XML.
Holiday homes owners have already tested the potential of portal cottages-for-holidays.com. The portal provides a possibility to add these users on a paid basis. Thus, Principal Solutions CMS is able to simultaneously work with XML-data and the data coming through the external form of the site directly from users.
The content structure of cottages-for-holidays.com supports static articles as well as dynamically updated news module. News module at cottages-for-holidays.com uses URL address format, which meets the requirements of Google News Search. Thus, the portal can be ranked not only in the normal Google Search, but also in the news search, too.
Cottages-for-holidays.com – is a part of a multilingual project, covering a wide range questions concerning vacation rentals. Besides cottages-for-holidays.com there are four versions of the portal in German, Russian, French and Italian. At every portal flats, apartments, villas, houses and cottages can be booked by users and added by the property owners.
Content management at cottages-for-holidays.com is performed via a separate backend. Cottages-for-holidays.com offers services for advertisers and major real estate agencies. A potential of Principal Solutions CMS allows to work simultaneously with several XML data imports, so it is possible to publish the proposals of different companies at the portal.
