Deciding to use Magento platform we need to realize the requirements which the system sets for the server where the store is launched. Magento was designed with the emphasis on considerable load and its scalability. It enables the administrator to separate the processes in the way that safeguards stability and proper speed of taking actions. Shared hosting is highly non-recommended because it does not provide an opportunity to configure the server properly and the stores placed in such hosting usually work very slow.
Magento gives vast possibilities which make up for its server requirements. While choosing the platform one needs to take into account higher hosting expenses in the form of a dedicated server, VPS or a computing cloud.
We help your clients to choose the optimal server, perfectly suited to their present and prospect situation. We use only tested, reliable and stable hosting companies, such as ‘Amazon Web Services’ and OVH.
The servers administrated by us are monitored 24/7. Specialist diagnostic software installed on our servers check them for efficiency and safety.
