Good for you since you didn’t make any wrong choice smile. Anyway, a good magento host can be found by these steps:

1. Server resource and configuration for magento

It doesn’t make sense if a hosting you buy can’t run magento so that you need to make sure the hosting provider have configured their host work best for magento. It is not like wordpress, joomla, drupal… what very easy to run on any host. With magento if you don’t choose the right provider it will not work at all.

So as far as the hosting provider say they have magento hosting package then it should be fine.

2. Security

The most important of ecommerce is security. You need to figure out the hosting have good security or not. At least they have backup functionaltiy, alert and support SSL easy.

3. Location & speed

The last and the important is the speed of your site. It usually belong to location but it belong to the server hardware resource also. Server are not allowed to have too many hosts on server to keep share memory, CPU work well.

The speed will help you sales better and your customers more happy so that you should choose a provider have location near you. If the provider have many locations then it should be better to your business since your business usually need to be flexible.

4. Support time & Magento support

Do the hosting have magento support? how many minutes in average response time? How many years they start the job in hosting industry?

Let ‘s find the answer for that and you will have way to choose the best.

My team experience so we are usually choose SiteGround Magento Host for our magento because they meet very well the requirements above and they have server in Euro, US, ASIA. It ‘s nice provider.

Hope it help.

It ‘s really useful, magesolutions. Do they include for us SSL installation in the package?

I got a site work with them. They include a free domain but not include free SSL. You have to buy it.

Any SSL certificate will be okay, really, but you might need to consider if you want to invest in a Extended Validation (EV) certificate to trigger the “green bar” in the browser. The price differences mainly reflects the brand recognition. If you just need a cheap SSL certificate, we recommend RapidSSL for $49/year.

I would say roughly ~$15 instead of $49/year. I see somewhere have price $10/year for repidssl, I don’t know why it ‘s too different price like that.

Magento is a very good but heavy e-commerce solution. It does not mean we can’t get it work very fast. If you invest to the right hosting for magento, you will get a good magento host and it will work fast as others.

Do the search to realize how is good magento host
Server resource and configuration for a good magento host
Security must be best in a good magento host
Location & speed
Support time & Magento support
