Magento ECommerce Hosting

Jan 14, 2009

After a few threads on Web Hosting Talk, I have decided to go with Magento eCommerce CMS because it is powerful and I like it

The only thing I am looking for is a host that will support it and that will let me either upgrade to a VPS, or straight to a Dedicated Server (or maybe even a co-location).
Because I am a startup business, the costs need to be low (yes, I know good hosting doesn't come cheap and I know I need to put into consideration SSL).

1 major thing. It NEEDS to be in the UK.

I was chatting to one of Rackspace UKs live help support people and they priced their entry level server at "£255 - £355 per month", which being a startup is a bit of a hefty price.

So, how do you think I should start? Shared, VPS or straight to dedicated?
Also, what UK hosts do you recommend?

Good Hosting For Magento: Installation More Easy

Jun 12, 2008

I want to share my recent experience with the Magento installation.

I tried to install Magento on my basic Goddady Hosting but it failed because the zend and PHP version is too hold.

I tried as well to install on one of my other customer hosting (1and1.fr)

And after a long time of uploading all the files and configuring the .htaccess files, It failed when I was on the almost last step : database information.

So I finally found a better hosting solution for Magento which works good.

This is the link for the tutorial how to set up your Magento Store

Ecommerce Web Hosting? Going To Use Hostgator Which Plan? Business, Baby Or Reseller?

Nov 3, 2008

I've officially decided to go with Hostgator but I'm having a hard time choosing which type of plan would make the most sense for; maybe there is something I'm not seeing and I'm hoping to get some additional insight...

Here is my plan; I plan on hosting multiple domains (business and personal) and atleast one e commerce website to start and it will eventually grow into about 5 down the road (this is going to be a drawn out process and I want to do it right).

The problem I have is I realize in order to get a true ecommerce website up in running I will need a dedicated IP address and SSL certificate for each site. If I purchase the Business plan it only comes with one dedicated IP and one SSL cert; Hostgator also told me that I'm unable to add an additional dedicated IP address or SSL cert to the business plan so I would have to purchase an additional Business Plan (12.95) per each site. It sounds like I could still host private and not SSL required sites on the business plan and as much domains as I want.

If I go the reseller path then the cost per month will be twice as much as the Business Plan and there is no dedicated IP address included. I will also have to purchase dedicated IP addresses at 2.00 a month and SSL certs as well so that method could get expensive.

I'm also not sure if the baby plan would suffice as well, but apparently not because there is a limit of 1 dedicated IP per plan

What would you guys recommend I do; I want a plan that will allow me to grow with them.

Just curious on what your guys thoughts were..

Also I read a previous post in this forum that someone said their SSL cert prompted the end-user to install the certificate; Being in Ecommerce this is obviously unacceptable to me.

ARIN App For SSL / Ecommerce Sites

Oct 2, 2008

I'd like to get IP's direct from ARIN and use with a colo or dedicated server I run a few dozen domains almost all of which are ecommerce sites the ones which accept credit cards of course have SSL and a dedicated IP all the others right now are taking offline payments i'd like to get them all setup with SSL with their own IP since they are starting to bring in more sales. Sites right now are being hosted all over the place mainly vps and shared. I want to have them all on one or more servers that I have complete control over including the IP's. I'm new to the forums but did search for arin and read a few posts about the justification and from what I read SSL is justified to get IPs. Can anyone give me more information on what I should be doing first before applying or how to go about it with them. I'm looking at arin's fee schedule and i would apply under the x-small/micro allocation how much smaller from /20 do they go is there a specific number of IP's i would get for the app fee of $1250 a year or how does that work exactly?

Weird [FLAG ECommerce Discovery]

Mar 13, 2009

So...a short little back story...

I started out with a reseller account at Webkore.net. Great company, I outgrew their services and moved to Innohosting over a year ago.

Before I moved to InnoHosting, I sent in a cancellation request (they use WHMCS)...but nothing was every canceled in their system and I kept getting invoices from them. I simply ignored them. Fair enough, right?

Now, as I've said...I've been with Inno for over a year now. In that past year Webkore.net seems to have been acquired by eCommerce Discovery.

Here is the weird problem. My account on their server was never deleted! I, as a reseller had WHMCS installed was using cron jobs to automatically send emails.

A few weeks ago, I started recieving cron job reports from cpsev1.wirednoc.net, a domain owned by eCommerce Discovery. I really wouldn't care too much, but apparently the whole WHMCS system is still active and is sending my clients emails (Invoice reminders, domain renewal reminders, etc etc...).

This is obviously something that needs to be dealt with as it's getting a little out of hand. I only had 35 clients in WHMCS when I was with them...all of which are still with me.

I've called the number at this page:
[url]
multiple times only to be forwarded to a voice message. I just now actually left my voice message. Emails to Webkore.net have gone unanswered for 6 months, so I'm not even going to bother with that.

What I don't understand is how my account, over a year old and unpaid, is still not only ON the server...but ACTIVE, unsuspended, and running cron jobs. I'm going to shoot eCommerce Discovery an email shortly and will update this thread if they reply, although...chances don't look good.

Host For Magento- Crucial Or The Planet

Jul 17, 2008

We are building a new shopping cart for our ecommerce site and plan to use magento. As I understand it magneto is and incredible cart but also a resource hog that doesnt work well with $10-20 a month shared hosting.

We have narrowed it down to two options.

The $100 a month plan from crucial. Which is still shared but it is limited. I think they split the server below into ten virtual servers and each virtual server has 5 users. I like them because they seem to be interested in optimizing the server environment for use with magento .

[url]Quad Core Intel Xeon Harpertown 3.0 GHz
16 GB fully buffered DDR-2 RAM
Fully redundant RAID-10 disk array
1000 Mbps network port uplink switch

The other option is a fully dedicated server from the planet. . The people building our site recommend this option because it is dedicated.

They have a dedicated sever with the specs below for $147 with the promo code DX
[url]
Package name- Dual Xeon 2.8 - IDE
Harddrive-2 x 80 GB IDE/SATA HDD
RAM-2 GB
Bandwith-2500 GB
5 IPs

Apache Memory / Cpu Usage / Magento

Jul 31, 2014

I'm running a single Magento website with only around 150 products, and very low traffic, on a VPS with 2 Cores and 4GB of ram. However I am getting constant warning emails about high Apache Memory usage and High CPU usage.

The server and site were working fine, however since the server failed (Power cut on upgrade at the hosts end) and we rebuilt the website I'm getting these warnings, my host said it is just the website and the server needed upgrading... to which I did (server was a 1 core 2GB ram server). However since I've upgraded I'm still getting these warning emails.

Here is the latest one: URL...

Code:
4951 apache 20 0 441m 137m 6556 S 0.0 3.6 2:28.77 httpd
4952 apache 20 0 443m 139m 7168 S 0.0 3.6 2:43.72 httpd
7377 apache 20 0 358m 54m 6576 S 0.0 1.4 1:25.76 httpd
7692 apache 20 0 433m 129m 6588 S 0.0 3.4 1:20.64 httpd

[code]....

I'm really new to VPS's and plesk so I'm wondering what I can do to try and track down what is causing these high usage as I'm 100% certain the site was fine before. The server has default build both before and after the fail.

Server Information:
OSCentOS 6.5 (Final)
Panel version11.5.30 Update #47
2 Cores
4GB Ram

Are there any tools within plesk that I can use to see what is causing these issues? It's making the website load extremely slow.

Will 2 Ecommerce Sites Sharing 1 Mysql On 1 VPS Effect SEO

Nov 28, 2007

I have 2 ecommerce sites now hosted at 2 different shared locations, both sites offer same exact products and pricing. I am in the process of elancing out the recode/rebuild for both sites to share one mysql database, cart and to be housed together in one VPS.

I plan to put them both on 1 windows VPS (they are asp) each with its own separate IP but have heard this can cause problems with search engines especially google. I have great natural organic right now (1st position for 5 of my demo keywords) and dont want to put that at risk but getting really tired of 2 separate backends, carts, hosting etc..

Difference Between Shared, Ecommerce, Dedicated, Reseller, Colocation And VPS

Apr 29, 2008

I've had a look at the different types of hosting, and had a guess at the description,

Shared
A machine with many, many domains on each for individual customer.

E-Commerce
Same as above with SSL?

Dedicated
One machine to yourself, one domain?

Managed
?

VPS
You have a dedicated potion of a machine to use as many domains on as you want?

Colocation
You own the server, someone else looks after it.

Reseller
Hard Disk space and Bandwidth to be apportioned to each domain as you see fit, cpanel with each domain so that you can 'resell'

So what type of hosting would I want to host 5 to 10 of my own websites that use around 100GB a month bandwidth?

Hosting Review Site Or Top 3 Hosting Co. For Shared Hosting

Apr 23, 2009

I'm trying to find at least three web hosting companies to choose from to host a Joomla websites on a shared server. Would consider dedicated if the deal was right. I have a friend of mine who wants to create a church website, and is looking for the best deal. I use Netfirms which I have never had an issue with, but I didn't want to be bias, and would like give him other options to choose from.

Is there a good WebHosting Review site, I could check out, or maybe someone could recommend their top three. I reading threw the forums here and I noticed there are not that many complaints with Hostgator. Again, I just want to see if there was anything out there better.

Your Opinion As A Customer: A Hosting Provider Who Couldn't Provide E-mail Hosting

Jun 4, 2009

Lets say you're a customer looking for web hosting, but do have technical experience - you know, you develop your own websites, you've had experience in this sort of thing before.

What if you came across a provider who seemed to offer a good service, they're high quality, they can host your website on their brilliant setup etc... but they do not provide any e-mail accounts with your hosting?

We're developing our own shared hosting setup, our own control panel too. Regardless of the control panel though, we wouldn't feel comfortable hosting peoples e-mail. We have plenty of experience in every other aspect of general shared hosting - but not looking after e-mail accounts nor the associated software.

To be honest I don't think that many shared hosting providers truely handle e-mail properly, and that job should really be left to the professionals.

We could of course guide customers or potential customers on why we won't offer e-mail accounts (i.e. not wanting to offer something we know we can't provide to a high enough standard) and instruct them on how to setup e-mail with another provider (such as Google, who will do this for free with limitations).

The alternative to the above is that we mask in a third party to look after e-mail, i.e. resell someone elses e-mail services as part of our hosting packages. The third party would require API access to setup/remove accounts..

What do you think? Are we just acting stupid trying to provide web hosting without e-mail hosting included? I noticed a while back Dreamhost encouraged their customers to use an alternative e-mail provider!

Hosting Multiple Sites On The Same Hosting Account. Getting A Weird Redirect

Oct 26, 2009

I have about 5 sites all hosted on my same hosting account. One of those domains is attached to the hosting account. I place my other domains in a folder of a sub-directory of my main domain. This has been working fine, up until today when i noticed a weird error. I give you a little example of how my sites are setup

my main domain:
www.maindomain.com

My other sites hosted in a sub-directory of my main domain:
www.maindomain.com/sites/site2/
www.maindomain.com/sites/site3/

How my other sites appear on the web:
www.site2.com
www.site3.com

This works fine for every page until i go to www.site2.com/index.php
It redirects to www.maindomain.com/sites/site2/index.php for some reason
