Why Your Web Host Should Know OpenCart

Posted by Paul on August 27, 2013

When choosing a web host there are a lot of things to consider, especially if you're an online only ecommerce business. In this case your ecommerce website itself will be one of the most important assets your business. Making sure uptime is as close to 100% as possible and that support is excellent is vital.

There are plenty of web hosts who will host your site, and some that will offer really great support, but even these will be unlikely to support the actual platform you're running. The majority of web hosts will provide the server and support this around the clock, whatever happens, but they are very unlikely to also support the ecommerce platform too.

That's what we think it makes sense to have one company who look after both the server environment and who are OpenCart experts. This way, whether the problem is the server itself or a problem with the OpenCart code, or indeed a combination of the two, it will get resolved quickly and without the usual back-and-forth and coordination needed between web developer and client host where both parties often blame the other for the issue.
