E-Commerce is one of the fastest growing channels connecting retailers with customers. According to eMarketer.com, Online retail sales topped $1.9 trillion US dollars and is expected to increase to over $4 trillion by 2020. Online retail sales consist of nearly 15% of all retail sales and data shows this market share is expected to increase in the next few years:
With e-commerce growth expected to continue at nearly double-digit rates, clearly now is a fantastic time for entrepreneurs to jump into online retail market.
But no matter how wonderful the products you have to sell or how engaging your online store is, without an excellent hosting service your e-commerce presence might as well be non-existent. After all, if your store is down customers can’t buy your products! Or even worse, your store is slow to respond to your customers requests and they end up leaving in frustration! Angry customers leads to poor sales and declining visits to your store. Certainly no one wants that!
That’s why PrestaShop is partnering with Simple Helix to provide best-in-class hosting for their open source online e-commerce platform! Simple Helix can provide the hosting environment to meet your online retail needs, regardless of the size! On top of that, Simple Helix offers PrestaShop hosting on shared servers, in the cloud or even on dedicated hardware! If your domain receives a thousand visits a day or a million, Simple Helix can build the PrestaShop hosting platform you need to make your online store profitable!
Simple Helix Shared Hosting is the best solution for small businesses focused on a small market or for e-commerce startups just getting started retailing online. With four levels of Shared Hosting, you decide the level of resource sharing necessary to operate an affordable yet profitable online store. Our Shared Hosting options don’t skimp on extras: we also offer excellent add-ons such as Cloudflare CDN and Litespeed Web Server to get the most out of your PrestaShop store!
If you prefer to be master of your own domain, Simple Helix offers PrestaShop hosting in the cloud! Cloud Hosting is an excellent choice for small to medium businesses that may need to react quickly to changing demand. Server resources such as CPUs, RAM and disk space can be changed on-demand, making sure you have all the power you need to run your online presence. And if there is a specific virtualization solution you require, don’t fret! Simple Helix offers cloud hosting on most virtualization platforms: VMWare, Xen and KVM!
Even with the ease of Cloud Computing, sometimes you just can’t beat having dedicated hardware running your business. Simple Helix has you covered by offering Dedicated Hosting on physical hardware. No sharing of server resources, no virtualization layer between your store and the hardware. Every bit of the server is yours and ready to take your PrestaShop store to the next level! With four tiers of Dedicated Hosting, we offer plans for any business size and any level of traffic.
No matter how much prevention is in place or how much care is taken, sometimes things go wrong. It’s an inevitable fact of life.
