hello Guys,
i plan to create one eCommerce website, i had seen my competitors during competitor research. while checking their site, i got annoyed because of their website loading time. it take a time to load.

because of that, here i post this question. suggestions for eCommerce hosting?

I heard about amazon cloud hosting but would like to know the suggestions and hosting plans about amazon cloud hosting. any other best cloud hosting services are also welcome.

Perhaps you will get better answers if you tell us how big of a store you plan to build.

it's a small store, plan to sell sculpture. like getting order from online and send the product by postal.

Like small sculptures and statue for home decorations and kind all. so just a simple site and we will use small value of products on that.

What i looking for is, Better Speed and Performance

Generally the poor load time for ecommerce software is caused by poor background programming and not necessarily by the web hosting. e.g. I find sites that use asp.net to be terribly slow for some reason.

Stuff linked to 3rd party sites can slow down load time also especially if the 3rd party site is having problems or out of service all together.

Have you considered just using a HTML site? The typical parts of the site can be done with includes. If you want to update then you just have to know a little HTML or copy the setup done by a professional for you when the site is first built.

Magento is a resource hog. You better get good hosting if you want to use it.

The real infrastructure behind cloud varies from one service provider to another. Sometime it could basically a traditional VPS or a true scalable cloud setup. If you have a good budget for high configuration VPS or Dedicated server then go for it instead of cloud, because a real scalable cloud service perhaps cost you a bit more.

I think like a couple of other people said, that you'll need to provide more specifics to get detailed responses for load time and data usage. In general I think that when you have a data intensive site that it's better to work with a smaller company that is dedicated to customer service. My experience with some of the larger companies is that they have more of a one size fits all mentality and any deviation can cause some headaches. My personal recommendation would be GalaxyVisions - I've used them before and thought they were awesome. Give them a call and see if they can put together a solution that will work best for you.

It is, but there are a lot of things you can do to optimize it.

I think you'll find that amazon is a bit pricey for your needs initially.

I think finding a host that uses and is familiar with something like Magento is probably the best way to go to get started. You'd be surprised how many high profile sites are using Magento.

You may find the following blog post useful for your Magento store optimization. Though, the blog post is a bit old, but it will help you someway. Also, read the comments on that post. You will find some additional tips. Hopefully helpful!

There is some good information here: http://gtmetrix.com/magento-optimization-guide.html

But the right web host should be able to provide a lot of the optimization for you.

with small business e-commerce, I would suggest you to use Opencart + VPS hosting (10$-15$/month). That's easy to use and control.

Agree with that, otherwise there are hosting companies that have specialized in hosting magento. Should be easy to google.

If you use Magento you will definitely need a VPS with plenty of resources, of even a dedicated server, it all depends on the traffic you estimate you're going to receive.

We currently use servers with at least 1GB RAM for any Magento stores which we host. If you're planning on using cPanel, or something similar alongside it then you're definitely going to need more resources.

Most VPS have 1 GB Ram and at least 50GB harddrive, it's almost min. requirements for a VPS.
