Everything About PrintXpand’ Backend

Every website is a composition of front-end and back-end. So is PrintXpand’ Designer tool website. Let’s understand how the Backend of PrintXpand’ Product designer tool functions. Let us start with understanding the basic terms that revolve around back-end development. 

Back-end Development refers to server-side development. Back-end is a term basically used for behind-the-scenes activities that happen while performing any action on a website. Whatever features you want to show on your frontend (i.e. user side of  your website) have to be configured in the backend. It stores and organizes data, and ensures everything on the client-side works smoothly. 

As stated earlier, every website is a composition of front-end and back-end. These ends are connected by settings called configurations. Correct configurations bring balance and increased efficiency of websites. PrintXpand’ tool is one such example of balanced ends which can be configured just by few clicks. PrintXpand’ backend comprises default Magento2 features and PrintXpand’s additional features. Both these features are interlinked and contribute in making PrintXpand’s tool untroubled.
