PrestaShop and A2 Hosting Partner to Provide Enhanced E-commerce Performance

ZoomWe at PrestaShop believe that you should care about website performance, and that’s why we wholeheartedly recommend you consider A2 Hosting.

A2 Hosting is an all-inclusive global-webhosting service that offers lightning-fast SwiftServers for optimal PrestaShop performance. They even provide free, seamless migration to their SwiftServers for existing PrestaShop users.  And with their automatic PrestaShop setup and instant account access, new PrestaShop merchants will also have an easy time getting started with A2 Hosting. So whether you’re unhappy with your current host or looking to start a new PrestaShop store, A2 Hosting is the perfect choice!

Both new and existing e-commerce merchants who want to use A2 need to visit the PrestaShop/A2 Hosting partner page and then choose from one of four solutions. It’s that simple. And because A2 offers a free 30-day money back guarantee, PrestaShop users around the world can take full advantage of their services… risk free!

Each solution offered by A2 Hosting is fully scalable, and with easy upgrades available, your chosen package will grow as your business becomes more popular.

  • VPS Hosting – This fully customizable, isolated environment offers full root access. This option is perfect for experienced developers.
  • Managed VPS – The most reliable solution for high-volume stores that need more power than a Web Hosting account. This solution includes full HostGuard Management from A2 Hosting’s 24/7 Guru Crew support team.

In the world of e-commerce, it’s no secret that site speed has a direct impact on everything from sales and page views to overall visitor happiness. The Aberdeen Group, a leading market research company, reports that a one-second delay in page-load time can cause a 7% decrease in your conversion rate. They also report that the same one-second delay equals 11% fewer page views and a 16% decrease in customer satisfaction.

Keeping site speed in mind, A2 just released Solid State Drives (SSD) on their SwiftServer hosting platform. And according to their SSD performance tests, PrestaShop pages load up to 300% faster when hosted on the SSD drive as compared to a normal hard drive.

Both new and existing online merchants using PrestaShop need to check out A2 Hosting. Not only do their solutions combine high speed performance with ease of use, they are backed by their 99.9% uptime guarantee so you’ll never have to worry about going offline. If you ever have questions, you can contact A2 Hosting’s 24/7/365 Guru Crew Support team anytime.

Aside from what has been mentioned above, there are a thousand great reasons for PrestaShop merchants to choose A2 Hosting. For a full features list or to learn more, check out the PrestaShop/A2 Hosting partner page.

  1. Hello,

    I would recommend you to give us comparison, In isolation it might not attract people like me. Though I am looking to change my hosting that is why I read this post but it will be great if you could write in comparison with Go Daddy and blue-host. Though the prices of A2 is less considering features along- A big advantage of moving. Please mention other as well.
