What to look for in a host for your Webshop?

You have a webshop and you’re wondering what kind of hosting to choose. You are worried about uptime and loading speed of your website. In this post we’ll answer those questions.

Loading time — If you have a webshop you want a fast loading website. Preferably below 2 seconds. We can offer you all this with our webhosting plans: https://www.hostslim.eu/hosting/#info our hosting is specialized for webshops.

Uptime — You would want 100% uptime, now not a lot of providers can offer this and guarantees are mostly 99.9% but you would want to check with the provider if they have emergency power, UPS, APC and double power feeds and the same for the fiber channels. You need redundancy. We offer all this.

Distance — If you are in the other part of the world, you might want to check the ping/loading time with the datacenter you go with first. You can ask your provider for a speedtest or test IP anytime and they should be able to provide you with those details. Distance should not be a problem if the infrastructure is advanced and focussed on global traffic, just like we are.

Bandwidth — A webshop might start small in bandwidth usage and you should not overcommit right at the beginning as that’s just spending money with no actual needs. Though you do need to keep an eye on your bandwidth usage and upgrade on time. Buying bandwidth in advance is always cheaper with your provider and will save you a lot of money. With your webhosting you get a complete statistics plugin that will also show your bandwidth usage.

Management — If you don’t know how to manage your own webshop or how to install it, we have the solution for you! We have a sitebuilder and an application installer. With us you can have your webshop up and running within 5 minutes! It really is easy as 1-2-3! You don’t need to have advanced knowledge to set it up and we will maintain the server for you to make sure you’re always up to date. The only thing you  have to do is add the products and images.

Software — We have a variety of software for your webshop. We have over 300 applications and over 30 different kind of webshop softwares, which Magento, Opencart and WooCommerce are mostly used.
