Thread: Hoster for shop

    Hoster for shop

    I'm new to the US hosting market.
    I'm looking for a reliable (linux) webhosting with a good uptime, support and security for our webshop.
    I need a SSL certificate and dedicated IP. Can someone advice me.
    thanks

    Have any budget in mind, go with namecheap for ssl or postivessl for cheap ssl if you need.

    Most host provide dedicated ips for ssl to be installed.

    Other than that look around you might find a decent enough host. Since i have not used any shared webhost cannot recommend you any.

    Cheers

    Just a normal budget. Between $0 - $50 i think.
    What do you suggest instead of shared. A dedicated server ?

    How much bandwidth/disk space do you need? Do you have a CP preference?

    I would suggest shared hosting.

    Is your shop big ? Cause most shops can be run on shared hosting environment.

    For example there are like 2 - 4 such shops running on my server. Some with ssl and some without.

    So, depends on your webshop itself.

    What are your requirements? How much space, bandwidth, do you need?

    How can you do that without any knowledge of requirements?

    it's a webshop with laptops and desktops. You can configure them by yourself. So there are about 5000 products and a large number of different configurations. Webspace i need is about 5GB, and bandwith should be high. The higher, the better.
    My shop looks a bit like zepto.com. The same thing in configurations and possibilities. You can even download drivers from our site if the bandwith let's us.

    Does your site also use asp cause than your search factors narrow down to only select few hosts.

    What control panel do you prefer? As Energizer Bunny said are your pages in asp?

    Well if it's PHP then there are many hosts to choose from and most use cPanel. Just look around. Hope you find the right host!

    I searched for hosts and yes i found some candidates. But I don't know if it are good quality hosters. That's why I asked if someone could advice me, or point me to a few good hosters with a very good service, uptime etc..

    Do you know actually how much bandwidth are you using?
    Since uptime and reliability it's important to you, I suggest you to not focus your search in the "biggest" package, since you're not going to need it, however, depending of how much resources your site does use, maybe a good idea would it be to search for a dedicated, specially taking in consideration that if your site is very popular it shouldn't be a problem afford it.
