We recently started hosting a few ecommerce websites. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or warnings, things to look out for. As far as security, etc. Is it much different then just hosting regular websites?
You want to make sure your servers and environment can pass PCI scans.

I think that if you running e-commerce web site - it should be well-designed, convenient.. Your content should be always fresh..
Can agree about Magento commerce shopping cart software.. it is the best one for running ecommerce sites.
Make sure your sites can pass a PCI Scan. In addition, tell your customers not to store credit card data in their shopping cart software. Many of the open source shopping carts (Magento, VirtueMart, osCommerce, Zen cart, Ubercart, etc) allows the merchant to use free payment modules for PCI certified payment gateways.
