    If your programming skills aren't at the expert level yet, you should consider a host that can install the e-commerce shop for you. 1-click installations may be the way to go, or you can try using MAGENTO GO (not regular Magento; it's the GO service). This is a service by Magento where they have the shop already set for you -- just add products and make a few other settings, and you're good.

    From working with a lot of ecommerce clients, I've had a lot of feedback suggesting the same thing- That Magento GO is quite easy to use and get started with. Best of luck!

    Magento is a really good eCommerce system. But it consumes a lot resources (RAM, CPU, ..etc). Magento optimization is not that hard. You will not go anywhere if your VPS does not have much hardware resources. If you want to use Magento, try to choose VPS with more RAMs, more CPUs, faster disks,I suggest you to use http://vpswebserver.com solutions,

    bigcommerce is the best. i've been with oscommerce, magento, shopify, magentoGo, volusion, opencart, and even prestashop.

    zencart is a variation of oscommerce.

    I would rule everything out, if your not going to go with BigCommerce, go with Magento (but theres enormous costs that most newbies don't realize) trust me, i've experienced it.

    I do offer ecommerce services, but PM for more details, I'm not trying to sell you anything, I just want to give you a advice that no one gave me

    magento is ofcourse an all rounder but if u dont have an expertie in installing then go for one which is pre installed and can handle better services,
    all the best

    Magento is good to start but do evaluate future cost if are planning for long-run and might have to move to their Enterprise version. Make sure you understand correctly the difference in community and enterprise version, and what type of usage each version allows.

    Yes, Magento is the best platform for any ecommerce site. You will have many different plugins for making your online shopping cart more easier. So I prefer you to choose Magento. And there are many sites which guides you to work on Magento.

    Before you decide to try a specific software for this purpose, better try and get as much information about it as possible. There are many such tools you may come across. Choosing the right one is the main challenge you may have to encounter.
