What is Magento hosting?
Magento is the world's favourite software for online shops. Because of the complexity of this software, most Magento hosting companies offer installation as a service. Opting for Magento hosting from 1&1 makes everything simple. We provide you with the technical means and the necessary performance to get your online shop off the ground. Alongside the hardware needed to operate a Magento server, you also benefit from experts who are familiar with Magento's demands; for example, PHP scripting languages and MySQL databases. If you have the knowledge and proper architecture in place to install the software yourself, then you may only need to order webspace or a server with enough power to run your system. However, with 1&1, you'll always have experts on hand who can support you throughout the Magento installation process and ensure that it fits your Magento server perfectly.
With 1&1, you enjoy Magento hosting together with comprehensive support. Besides our easy one click installation, your shop will have a well-equipped server on which to run. With our Performance Hosting packages, you secure a Magento dedicated server in one of our data centres and take care of software updates yourself. With our Managed Server option, we manage your server and oversee software updates on your behalf. Our experts also take charge of the smooth operation of our server hardware and security at our data centres. We use top-grade server brands, offer optimal loading speeds and ensure data protection. Simply select the 1&1 Performance Hosting package you wish and choose Magento. Additional open source software can be downloaded at any time from the 1&1 App Centre.
What can I expect from a Magento hoster like 1&1?
1&1 offers optimised Magento hosting for your online shop needs. With our service, installing the complex software that makes Magento so dynamic is easy, and can be accomplished in just one click by visiting the 1&1 App Centre. We fulfil all of the technical requirements needed to install the software so you can operate your shop smoothly.
Once Magento has been installed, you're free to concentrate on the design, construction, and operation of your store – we take care of the server side of things. To that, add ample storage space, incredible computing power, and a high-speed network connection and you have Magento hosting that's a cut above the rest. With 1&1, you can create the advanced online shop that will exceed your own expectations, and those of your customers.
What type of Magento server is right for me?
When you decide to work with Magento to run your shop, it's best not to skimp on securing a proper server. When it comes to servers, there is an important distinction between a shared Magento server and a managed Magento server. In the first instance, you share a server with other customers, in the second, you have a server all for yourself. The advantages of choosing the latter option to run Magento can't be overstated – especially if you are planning to run a large store. Magento hosting requires a lot of resources to run smoothly, including large amounts of computing power, memory, and storage space. During peak shopping times, such as at Christmas, increased traffic to your site could result in slower loading times. This could cost you customers looking for a convenient online shopping experience, as well as hurt your shop's Google ranking. Choosing a managed server from which to run your online shop will give you the power you need to accommodate high traffic. With 1&1, you'll not only receive a superior Magento server maintained by experts, you'll also enjoy automatic software updates.
On the other hand, when you want to create a small shop on a tight budget, then Magento hosting is probably not for you. Thankfully, 1&1 offers simple online shop solutions that can be built up in a few clicks. But when you want the freedom that an unlimited online shop offers, as well as the best loading times, even during peak hours, then Magento hosting is the right option for you. To get the most out of this modern software, we recommend ordering one of our Performance Hosting packages. These packages come with a managed server housed in one of our state-of-the-art data centres, which is also fully maintained by our team. Depending on the size of your project, we offer different server capacities to meet your needs. If business is booming, you can easily choose to upgrade to a higher performance hosting package.
What requirements should my Magento server fulfill?
The ideal Magento hosting server will provide top performance together with the appropriate hardware to handle the size and complexity of the software. The type of hosting package, including the corresponding server capabilities, will of course depend on the size of your undertaking. For an eCommerce site with extensive stock and higher traffic, we recommend securing an independent server to meet your needs. This option is called a dedicated server, meaning you will have the sole use of its processing power, memory, and storage for your project. As part of our Performance Hosting packages, we offer Magento servers combined with the benefits of a dedicated server system. That means we lay down the groundwork for you to run your project, so you don't have to worry about hardware maintenance, security issues, or whether you have the most up-to-date equipment and software at your disposal.
At 1&1, you can harness the maximum processing power of our servers to run a successful eCommerce business – crucial for ensuring fast loading times on your site. We make this possible by using current hardware and an exceptionally fast Internet connection. You can also take advantage of our apps such as Magento, WordPress and Joomla! to create your site. What's more, 1&1 gives you a 30-day trial to sample what we have to offer. If you're not satisfied, don't worry. Contact us within the first 30 days of ordering your package and we guarantee your money back immediately. But we're confident you'll be happy with your new Magento server and our high-performance hosting package.
How much will a Magento server transfer to 1&1 cost?

When you need more storage space, memory, and exceptional performance, all without the technical hassle of maintaining a server, then one of our Managed Server packages is for you.
