Can anyone recommend some hosting for Magento. At the moment I’m just looking for something to play around with while I learn the ins and outs and as such don’t want to spend a great deal of money.

Cheers

Ash

Anyone had any luck with Australian Magento hosting providers?. I’ve emailed a couple providers however no positive replies, many not willing to change configuration to allow mysql PDO extension or turn php safemode off.

I have spoken to SmartyHost about them hosting a Magento E-Commerce Site for me.
I havent got it up and running yet but they said providing Mageno’s specific PHP extensions and settings shouldn’t be a problem

http://www.smartyhost.com.au/

I’m interested to know which hosting providers the people out there with active trading Magento Sites are using?

Thanks in advance! cheese

Matt.

Hi,

I’m using planet domain, and just convinced them to install pdo & pdo_mysql.  Running fine as a result.

If you do use them, although they say they’ve got PHP5, the hosting is PHP4 by default.  You’ll need to add a handler to .htaccess so that your system uses the PHP5 install (add: “AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php").

Cheers,
Andrew.

Fontis can provide Magento hosting, however we normally only provide this to our clients as part of an ongoing service arrangement. Anyone can feel free to contact me if you’d like more info about this.

If you are just looking for plain hosting we normally recommend Net Logistics (http://www.netlogistics.com.au) with their Edge developer package (to provide some of the extra dependencies that Magento has). We’ve found their support to be particularly good and haven’t come across any problems with the hosting service provided.

MediaTemple have 1-click installations of Magento that work swimmingly. Its only $20 USD per month for a MediaTemple (gs) account. 1-click, install it and then knowing it is working you can start to get your hands dirty. Believe me, there is plenty to get your hands dirty with leaving aside installation headaches.

MT isn’t Australian based… I have tried a few AU based providers and am happy with Web24 for our dedicated box. They matched our price that we had with thePlanet (US) and allow us to run cPanel vs. Plesk or whatever they generally use. I have heard good things about MT but it’s just whether you want to go Aussie or not… I find that the connectivity from the US to AU isn’t as good as one thinks. We run monitoring software on a US server for our Australian one and see that during any given week there is down time when the down time isn’t seen locally.

I have setups on these two hosts:

- OnTheNet.com.au
- Net Logistics.com.au

Both are great, the Onthenet server is faster

We use cove.com.au and have found them to be very good smile

They use a Xen VPS architecture and they are quite reasonably priced,
