Managed hosting provider Hostway
is offering a new “turnkey, secure and completely managed and supported” Magento Hosting service. Hostway, which has headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, United States, offers a range of options including private clouds, managed servers, and hybrid cloud hosting alongside standard web hosting and email hosting. The company caters to around 200,000 customers globally and has teams of engineers in North America and Europe. Its new managed Magento hosting offers the "broadest scope of support in the industry”.
Magento is an Open Source (OS) ecommerce solution that is available as a free download. It allows users to establish ecommerce sites of varying complexity and provides a range of themes that can be used to give Magento websites a unique look and feel. The Magento community develops commercial and non-commercial modules that enhance its functionality by adding a range of options to Magento websites. Hostway’s Magento Hosting service is underpinned by Microsoft’s Azure framework.
News of the launch was made at the Imagine Ecommerce Conference which is currently taking place at the Wynn Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The service is designed for “large retail enterprises and system integrators” and offers them the “best possible buying experience for their customers”. With Hostway managing their hosting, companies can avoid the distraction of supporting their own Magento site and are more able to focus more on their core competencies.
“We’re redefining what customers expect from a hosting provider, which typically has been only support of the hardware and network for the application,” explained Hostway’s General Manager of Web and Application Services, John Enright. “The true value of our ecommerce delivery goes beyond the hosting to the support and management of the application provided by our certified Magento specialists. Our managed ecommerce service comes as a direct result of customer requirements for greater expertise in managing their online businesses.”Do you know of any other companies offering new Magento solutions?
