What hosting for E-commerce?

Discussion in 'Web Hosting' started by flamingo2009, Jan 3, 2020.

    What hosting would be suitable for an ecommerce? We normally have around 100 concurrent visitors at any given time and expect this to go upto 1,000 visitors soon.

    We tried our hands with Cloudways with DO and found the CPU resources very poor, not to mention their recent decision to introduce paid support plans if you need fast response. Ridiculous. Shifted to Fastcomet (which runs on Linode servers anyways) and are having lot of network issues. Shifted two different boxes already. The IP is not even pinging correctly and frequent issues with their upstream provider.

    What next? We are tired of going back and forth between various hosting solutions and are looking something far more reliable with great support, something that will scale with us as we grow and with a datacenter preferably in India so that we are near our customers. Or may be a Singapore datacenter with a CDN.

    Any pointers?

    I had very good experience with reseller hosting from HostWithLove and JoneSolutions, both for speed/uptime and for support. I don't know how they would be with dedicated, though. Always send them a couple of messages before committing; you can get an insight of their support.

    You can have a provider to spin a cloud server for you, which can be upgraded as your projects grows. It should not make a huge difference in pricing (between shared hosting and cloud server + control panel) as you require capable web hosting anyway. And better find out CPU rating, disk speed and network capabilities before ordering.

    According to your needs, believe hostingsource.com is flexible enough to meet your specifications. They have provided web hosting for me for years. Top notch service and always an immediate response.

    I would suggest you to use a VMware based Cloud server and to make sure that the company that provides it has a high performance storage solution in place. This will give you the best possible I/O and will make your e-commerce website running fast.
