eCommerce eCommerce Hosting

Blazing speeds for the best shopping experience

Get Started

eCommerce stores allow you to sell and buy products and services around the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The speed of your eCommerce website is critical for increasing conversion rates and providing the best user experience for your customers in order to serve a large customer base. eCommerce websites tend to require more resources than traditional websites, as they can often have many users on the site at the same time purchasing products. This is especially true during high traffic periods or during sales and promotions. A2 Hosting VPS & Dedicated Turbo Plans are up to this challenge and can provide 20X faster page loads to improve your user experience, improve conversions, and help with your Google rankings.

eCommerce Platform & Software Options

Using the A2 Hosting Control Panel you can deploy the most popular eCommerce platforms with just a couple clicks. Below is a list of just some of the Online Shopping software available to our clients. 

Online Store Server Options & Considerations

Small Store with Light Traffic

If you are selling low quantity / low volume items (such as promotional items, handmade arts & crafts, etc) then a small Managed VPS plan running an easy-to-use application like WooCommerce will most likely meet your needs. You can always upgrade later to a larger plan or a Turbo plan if your traffic increases.

An Online Store That Drives Revenue

If your online presence is generating a fair amount of your total revenue (such as the online arm of a brick-and-mortar store or other online extension of your business) then a mid level Managed VPS or low end Managed Dedicated plan running a WooCommerce, OpenCart or other mainstream eCommerce platform will let you handle varying levels of traffic while having dedicated resources you can count on.

A Mission Critical eCommerce Store

If your online store is driving all the revenue then it's imperative that your server be online and perform at optimal levels. Our Turbo Managed VPS and Managed Dedicated plans feature Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD drives.  A Dedicated Server is required for running the Magento platform as it requires a large amount of resources to perform.

eCommerce Hosting FAQs

eCommerce hosting is a space provided by hosting companies for hosting your online store on a server that has the platform and application to build virtual storefronts, online shopping carts to manage orders, and payment systems to complete transactions. A2 Hosting provides eCommerce hosting plans on VPS with high-end storage discs, RAM, processors, and pre-installed applications to help you get started or speed up your online store.

A shopping cart is an internet based system used by e-commerce websites that simplifies online transactions. Shopping carts allow online shoppers to temporarily store items of interest in it until they are ready to purchase them. The shopping chart software automatically computes the cost of the selected items, provides a portal for the customer to pay for them and allows them to provide other pertinent information necessary to complete the transaction. Quality shopping cart software is necessary to build and manage a successful and professional e-store.

Your host has a direct impact on how quickly your page loads. Everything from your SEO rankings to your bounce rate to your customer satisfaction level is affected by your page load speeds. Most importantly, the speed in which your pages load has an effect on your conversion rate. Your website will be hosted by A2 Hosting on our SwiftServer platform, which is optimised for speed. You can even choose our Turbo Servers, which deliver up to 20X faster page loads than competing eCommerce hosting providers.

There are many advantages to choosing VPS Hosting over competing solutions. These advantages include:

  • Improved Performance & Isolation - You don't share resources with other users meaning your audience will enjoy your enhanced website performance in a VPS environment.
  • More Control & Customization - Root access allows you to configure server settings to fully match your hosting needs.
  • Cost Effectiveness - You get to experience most of the benefits of a Dedicated Server, without the cost.
  • Highly Scalable - As your site becomes more popular, you can also easily increase your VPS' resources to keep up with growth.
  • Ability To Host Resource Intensive Software - Some software is not compatible in a Shared Hosting environment as it needs more resources to run properly. A VPS offers those additional resources.

We're Reliable!

While having a fast site is certainly a necessity, you also need to make sure that you choose a host you can depend on. Think of all the time and effort that goes into building and maintaining an eCommerce site. You deserve every site that the site generates If your site goes down because of your host, that's lost opportunity and more importantly you're missing out on revenue that you have worked hard for. Don't choose a host who uses unreliable networks with old hardware loaded down with customers. Choose A2 Hosting where your eCommerce site will be hosted on an ultra-reliable server backed by our 99.9% Uptime Commitment.

You won't regret selecting our service. We're so confident of that, we back our eCommerce Web Hosting solutions with our Money-Back Guarantee. That means if you decide we're not the host for you (which we don't believe will be the case), you can request your money back and you'll receive a hassle-free refund.
