We have compiled a checklist of what you should be asking yourself to find the best Magento host

A reliable, fast, trusted website is essential to winning your customers’ trust. This starts with your hosting provider but there are so many to choose from, where do you start? Here are a few things you should think about when it comes to your Magento host.

  • Are their servers shared or dedicated

    One thing every provider is going to sell you on is a dedicated server. The difference between a dedicated server and a shared server is that with the latter you are sharing server space with multiple people.

  • PCI Compliance

    One thing many people don’t consider when selecting a Magento hosting provider is whether or not the provider can offer PCI compliant shared servers

  • How quick is the support response time?

  • Does the hosting provider offer the right level of service for you?

  • Do they offer at least 99.99% uptime per year?

  • How fast will your website be and can they optimise your website speed?

  • What is their reputation like and do they host similar websites to yours?

  • How secure will your website be?

If you consider these things when you choose your hosting provider, or think about switching, then you’ll be well on your way to getting a decent provider.

The right Magento hosting provider for you is going to come down to exactly that, you. Different people will have different expectations for their providers, these are simply the best places to start. Don’t immediately sign into any long term contracts. Try which ever provider you think will work best, and if you like it, great! But if your store is running slowly or the support is lacking, you can always switch providers. Many of the companies even offer free migrations from one provider to another.
