E-Commerce hosting

E-commerce allows a growing audience to expand the ways they interact with customers. Professionals who operate from a physical shop use e-commerce to inexpensively offer their products to a much wider client base. Other professionals create e-boutiques to sell their products exclusively online.

Criteria for high-quality e-commerce hosting

Regardless of which type of platform you decide to opt for, quality e-commerce hosting is essential.

Security is an essential consideration. Protecting your customers’ financial information and personal data is crucial. Updates, firewalls, and penetration tests are all indispensable measures you should use to protect your customers. Gandi bears no responsibility for these elements.

The hosting solution you use for your online store will also influence your website's loading time and overall performance. Quick loading times are essential to a quality user experience.

Lastly, your hosting solution should provide complete and permanent availability for your customers, especially in times of high traffic. Whenever a site is down, sales are lost.

E-Commerce CMS

Creating and hosting e-commerce websites used to require web developers to create complex systems from scratch. Now, several CMSs give anyone the ability to take the plunge and start selling goods online. Among the most prominent options are PrestaShop, Drupal, WordPress and Magento.

PrestaShop

Entirely free, this CMS is a France-based solution that provides simple tools you can use to create an online shop. Customizable, flexible, and easy to install, PrestaShop also boasts an extensive library of themes and modules.

When you use a dedicated e-commerce hosting solution, setting up your PrestaShop e-boutique is quick and reliable.

Drupal

Drupal is a Content Management System that allows you to build highly complex sites and platforms using an intuitive interface. Perfect for those wanting to integrate more advanced features, or even develop new ones, Drupal offers a strong foundation where almost any concept could be built.

When you use a hosting solution developed specifically for Drupal, you won’t miss out on any of its immense capabilities.

WordPress

WordPress is the most common and widely respected CMS. It is the most widely used content management system in the world and powers more than a third of all websites on the web. WordPress’s versatility, speed, and ease of installation are the reasons for its excellent reputation, along with its user-friendliness and regular automatic updates. By choosing the right plugins and opting for WordPress-specific e-commerce hosting, you have everything you need to create a powerful and easy-to-use online boutique.

Magento

Despite its somewhat complicated code, Magento boasts a powerful foundation on which to build the most ambitious online shops. Capable of supporting up to 80,000 orders an hour, and a product catalog of up to 500,000 entries, it remains a firm favorite among professionals. This slightly more demanding solution requires a dedicated e-commerce hosting solution.

Included in each plan:

  • Storage expandable up to 1TB (€0.18/GB)
  • Free TLS/SSL certificates.
  • Unlimited bandwidth.
  • Automatic linking to your domains.
  • Varnish web accelerator.
  • Technical support by email.
