Hi canberra_dev,

First of all, you need to choose a hosting company who provide Magento Hosting package to make sure it WORK with Magento. And then you can take a look at their security, location and support. Base on our team magento server and hosting research, we always choose SiteGround Magento Hosting package for all of our projects and they are all happy until now.

Got a nice choice, man. But still, I have no idea how to use memcached in magento. Do you have any instruction? I believe it will help my magento site even faster. Nice to have memcached in shared hosting plan. Thanks.

Just click to supercacher icon in the bottom of cpanel, you will see everything there with credentials and how to configure. Almost them just turn on/off.

I host almost all my stores at DigitalOcean. They have very good and powerfull VPS at a very low price (like 20$ a month for a store).

After 2 months work with your choice, I have to say it ‘s really a nice choice. The key feature why we have to choose it is it must be a magento hosting package. And then it support caching system. Everything work very well.

As Magento is a very resource-demanding platform, you will need a powerful hosting that is optimized for Magento. VPS and Dedicated hosting are highly recommend, however, if your website does not have too much traffic you can still use shared hosting but remember, the hosting must be optimized for Magento or your website will be very slow.
Take a look at this article, it may help you out.

Hosting is 1% of revenue, for smaller stores (and to start with), 0.5% is fine and for stores with 10s thousands products, 10s to 100s stores, many extensions, large amounts of custom code, slow ajax theme, then over 1% may be required. There will be 2-3 hosts in each class specialised in Magento for that level, for example for $50-100 SimpleHelix or Crucial, and so on.

You can also get a good idea of your revenue, so if you spend $50/mth in hosting then do not expect to make much more than $60,000 revenue per year (revenue not profit) as Google and Visitors are very aware when a website does not match the revenue generation capabilities. Now 99% will not follow these guidelines (provided by some of the best and most trusted enterprise consultants around) and wonder why they fall in the 95% of stores that fail to make any profit taking both time and cost in to account, but that is just the way it is. If you want to be around medium to long term these are the figures to work with, if you are only worried about short term or do not trust the figures then give it about 9-12mths, that time will allow you to see which approach was correct. It is all that simple.

Good anaIytics, I think if money is not a big deal, Nexcess is the best hosting for Magento at the moment. If a business is new and does not too much traffic/month, we still can use shard hosting plan to start off and upgrade later when the site grows bigger

A great tool to check the real performance of your Magento site is http://www.magespeedtest.com. It shows actual response and transactions/s for some of the major Magento optimized hosts, which have signed up for their automated testing. You can also test your own Magento site and see how it compares. I recommend everyone to base their decision upon independent, non-biased benchmarking sites like the above, instead of believing in these “top 5” lists which are pretty much bullsh*t..

The true thing is after using the suggestion of magento2x after 5 months, everything to me work very smooth without any problem. My customers are happy with website performance.

I am totally agree that the “top 5 list” is just doesn’t work since they don’t really help if you host with not magento hosting package. Of course, magestore seem have no any experience with magento.

Other than that I am not sure about http://www.magespeedtest.com/, look like there are something wrong because some websites I “feel” it fast but doesn’t show the good result in this tool but some slow website who better :(. Who own this tool and how I can trust them?

Not sure who actually runs the site, but the point is it uses a real benchmarking tool (Siege) to simulate a number of simultaneous visitors, giving an honest and non-biased report of the actual speed/performance. It uses the Magento sitemap.xml file to crawl a random selection of pages and measures how many transactions/second the server is able to process. Of course, other factors such as network latency and geographical location of the server should be taken into account as well, but at least it gives a pretty good idea of the server performance.

For more information about how Siege works, see: http://www.aschroder.com/2010/12/laying-siege-to-magento-performance-testing-your-magento-webstores/
