Empower your online store with a reliable Magento hosting service

Magento web hosting makes it easy to deploy highly customized and personalized ecommerce websites specifically tailored to your business needs. Magento is packed with features and full of functionality, thus it requires a specific web hosting environment, which is optimized to enable it to run as fast as possible. In order for your Magento-based website to run smoothly and experience the best performance, it is important to choose a reliable Magento host offering Magento hosting services fully compatible with all Magento hosting requirements. But how do you choose a Magento hosting company that is right for you? Below is a list of things to consider when choosing a Magento web host that will best suit your Magento-based online store.

System requirements compatibility. For best performance and fast load times, your Magento host should be fully compatible with all Magento system requirements. To run smoothly, Magento requires the following software: Apache web server; PHP 5.2.0 or greater with these extensions: PDO_MySQL, simplexml, mcrypt, hash, GD, DOM, iconv, curl and SOAP; MySQL 4.1.20 or newer and a valid SSL certificate. So, before choosing any particular Magento hosting provider, make sure the provider meets all these Magento hosting requirements.

Installation service fees. Installing Magento on your web hosting account is a straightforward procedure, so your web host should not charge you for this service. The Magento development team has developed an easy-to-use fully automatic module installation feature completely integrated in the Magento platform. That’s why no additional fees should be applied by your web hosting provider for Magento modules, components, and template installation.

Optimal performance. It’s a well-known fact that users tend to gravitate towards faster loading e-commerce websites. For this reason, it is very important to choose a web hosting company that knows how to create isolated Magento hosting environments specifically tuned for optimal performance and rapid delivery of your Magento website.

Technical support. In order to run your ecommerce website smoothly and trouble-free, it is important to choose a Magento web host that provides excellent technical support. Only a web hosting provider that has a support team of Magento experts with extensive experience in e-commerce hosting can provide you with accurate and timely assistance.

Choosing a reliable web hosting provider for your Magento-based online store is not easy. However, by taking into consideration all of the above-mentioned factors and by taking the time to learn about a Magento host before your order the service, you will be able to locate the best Magento web host that will suit all your e-commerce hosting requirements.
