By: Michael Turner, Thu Jul 6th, 2006
When shopping for e-commerce hosting there are a lot of things
you need to keep and mind. When you know what to look for it is
a lot easier to ensure you get exactly what you need and not
leave any important information out. Consider these 7 must haves
before you start shopping for e-commerce hosting so you will be
1. Storefront Regardless of what software you are using, one of
your main concerns should be the storefront. You want to be able
to customize your storefront to your specifications, at least
within reason, and certainly you want it to appear professional
and well put together. This should be a main consideration when
shopping for e-commerce hosting.
2. Support Regardless of the hosting you are using you will want
support, 24/7 if at all possible, and support that is real,
live, and will help you with your problems. In addition to this,
you should look for some self help support as well in the form
of a FAQ area and support providing advice for when you find
yourself in certain situations. Good hosts will provide you with
a great deal of information so you can help yourself.
3. Building With your e-commerce host you want to be able to
build your site easily and to your specifications. So, you
certainly want to use software that is easy to understand and
implement. In addition, it is helpful if wizards are available
to help you throughout the building process as well.
4. Integrated You want to make sure the host is integrated and
works well with all of the other systems that you need for your
site to be successful. If it is not integrated you should
strongly consider other options.
5. Tools and Functions This is important because you want as
many functions available from multiple currencies to a log of
purchases, so your e-commerce host will need to be able to
provide you with the space and tools you need to keep up with
all of this information.
6. Software When it comes to e-commerce software you can either
buy from a physical store, buy online from your host, or create
your own. The best option is to find a host that offers software
that is of high quality and will help you with e-commerce.
7. Ease of Navigation Your e-commerce software as well as your
host should allow you and customers to navigate easily through
all of the pages and all of the links without getting confused
Shopping for e-commerce hosting requires you know what you are
looking for as well as what you need. As long as you choose an
experienced host who has verified experience, you'll have a much
better chance at making a wise decision.
