Review: Magento Hosting $4 On A Hostgator Shared Server

http://www.sparksite.org/2012/testing-magento-on-a-shared-server
Most people believe Magento hosting requires a shared server. In my experience that is not true! My large magento store runs great on cheap hosting package from Hostgator.

In my experience this is best Magento web hosing and also the most cheap magento hosting — You’t can’t beat it for the price. They are a fast magento host too. My site with 12000 skus runs great. See more about this cheap hosting for magento at my site below.

    Magento, if well configured, can run on a shared server without problems. Magento's core is pretty well designed to scale linearly with the number of products in the database. Magento's speed depends largely on the caching model used and especially the cleanliness and efficiency of code in third party modules. Using redis as a cache can make a pleasant difference for instance. Magento's speed indeed depends largely on the caching model used but it is also important to analyse third party modules for cleanliness and efficiency of code, as incorrect handling of collections or just plain bad code can cause huge slowdowns. Furthermore, Magento Enterprise is very nice if you have a huge store with a lot of connectivity to external services, but for most stores Magento Community Edition is fine.

    Hostgator support is so piss poor though… It takes them 24 hours+ just to reply to simple questions. Also they only have an old version of magneto on their install list.

    Interested in Magento hosting? Move along to the next hosting company.
