Best Magento Hosting Company
You should know by now that Magento is a very powerful, free, beautiful, and spiffy (that one’s from me) shopping cart software. It’s like oscommerce but a billion times better. I have a long history of talking about (and in some cases, talking smack on) Magento hosting company’s here on this blog. Lucky for you I have found another web host that can handle the demands of Magento.
I’ve been using WiredTree for the last couple months, and there are three things that come to mind when I reflect on my experience I have had with them thus far:
1. 100% uptime. No, I really mean it. These guys really are up 100% of the time. Ok, if you insist that 100% is impossible, then just give them a try. I was with Simple Helix before and my site(s) went down multiple times each week. Sure, they always sometimes had a good excuse, but that doesn’t solve the problem.
2. Lightening fast support. Yeah, I bet you’ve heard that claim before. I’m betting you’ve seen the “best customer service” banners and the like from the big guys like MediaTemple. Guess what? I was with MediaTemple about a month ago and the best they could manage was one response per day…and I had to wait overnight to get the response to the previous days question. That just sucks. Especially when you have noob questions like I tend to have. Baby steps sums that one up. Here’s the deal: WiredTree is there for you. Really. Noob questions to complicated, they will usually respond within 15 minutes.
3. Magento Compatible. I currently have the Managed VPS1024 plan (previously had the 512 plan and Magento ran fine on it as well). I plan on moving all of my websites over to WiredTree as soon as I get the nerve to do it. If you’re looking for a Magento host, go with WiredTree. Better performance, service, and better people running the organization in general.
Examples of sites hosted on WiredTree:
1. Well….you’re looking at one. EliteEternity.Com is hosted @WiredTree.
2. My new Mallard Skate Shirts Brand website.
3. Tons of my other sites and blogs that I have actually had the time to migrate.
If you’re debating on whether or not to switch web hosts because you think it will be too complicated to move your blog from wherever you’re at to WiredTree, then think again. I’ve created a guide on how to migrate your blog from Dreamhost to WiredTree. The same principles apply if you’re current host isn’t Dreamhost. You can still follow the guide. I also made a guide on how to reconnect your Google Apps to your new WiredTree account. This guide includes simplified information on all of the seemingly complicated CNAME, MX RECORDS, etc.
P.S. Thanks to Justin Dupre for telling me about WiredTree. He has a great affiliate marketing blog that you should check out if you feel so inclined. Are you reading this, Justin? You should comment on one of my posts so I feel cool. I look up to you. lol.
