The Art of Choosing Excellent Zen Cart Hosting
Put yourself in the visitors shoes, if you found a website on Google or another search engine and you really liked the idea of what they offers, would you be happy if you clicked on the link only to find an error page or a blank screen taking forever to load?
Most visitors to websites will only stay for an average of eight seconds. If the site doesn’t load in those eight seconds, they will leave. Not only does a slow load time cost you customers, but it also hurts your search engine optimization. Part of the Google algorithm is dependent on how fast your website loads. If your site takes more than two seconds to load, it’s considered a slow loading website.
Start With the Best Hosting for Zen Cart
By choosing the best Zen Cart hosting from the beginning, you can avoid many of the typical issues of a new business. Many business owners base most of their original decisions on price. However, choosing the cheapest hosting package may be the biggest mistake you make.
If you choose a company only offering a cheap shared hosting package, you will have to switch hosts when you start receiving a medium to large volume of traffic. This will also happen if you plan to catalog more than just a few dozen products. The more products you include and the more traffic you receive, the better your hosting will need to be or you will experience slow load times and potential downtime.
Magento is defined as an open-source ecommerce web application. It was developed in 2008 and was originally called Bento. EBay now owns 100% of Magento, which is used by nearly 1% of all the websites found on the internet.
What Happens if You Choose Bad Hosting for Magento?
Bad hosting can lead to many issues from lack of support to downtime and more. The worst thing you can do for your customers is provide a website promising great product they cannot access because of your hosting. The most common issues with bad hosting companies include:
- Slow website load times
- More downtime than necessary
- Lack of support
- Slow support
- Lack of resources
- Over promising and under delivering
These problems stem from a number of issues, which include out of date servers, an unqualified support team and overloaded servers. You don’t want to deal with all these issues, while trying to launch and run your new business.
