Anyone who has ever considered starting up their own eCommerce website or business has, at some point, probably run into Magento. Where many other scripts, software, and plugins help make a small online store, they fall short when compared to a Magento VPS. A Magento eCommerce site is a true workhorse with both power and flexibility. It also has the customization that only open source can offer.
Why Use Magento Ecommerce?
A Magento Virtual Private Server (VPS) is the best option! It is open source, flexible, and popular. Consequently, it has a deep network of support. When opening up a new eCommerce business, keep in mind the power and flexibility that is achieved when using Magento on a VPS with SkySilk!

It allows you the freedom to choose your own host, doesn’t penalize you for growing your business, and contains a vast library of third party apps to expand on the feature rich environment. Also, thanks to a Magento VPS modular environment, you can speed your online shop up like never before. A Magento server allows a user to cache web pages easily using Varnish, retrieve data from gigantic databases in milliseconds, then process queries in no time and load pages fast enough to please your impatient customers.
How Can A Magento VPS Hold Up To Search?
Now more than ever it is important to make web sites as SEO friendly as possible. However, anyone trying also knows the drudgery involved in optimizing every aspect of SEO. This is a big drag for large eCommerce sites running hundreds or thousands of pages.
Magento eCommerce websites save the trouble of creating SEO optimized URLs, meta tags, descriptions, URL rewrites, sitemaps, and more. Its source comes with all these features built in, saving lots of trouble and time.
Also, it has never been more pressing to have a mobile optimized site. However, now it is really easy to develop mobile friendly websites using HTML5 capabilities of a Magento VPS. A Magento server gives mobile sites audio/visual as well as drag and drop capabilities. It also gives gesture-based controls as well as image scaling for varying screen sizes.
The Real Power Of A Magento Server
With Magento eCommerce websites, you can run multiple websites on the same common back-end system.
Every website can have distinctly different layouts and designs with their own stores. Consequently, you can even have different domains for each site. Control all of them simultaneously through a single unified admin panel using a Magento server.
Additionally, most websites do not allow payments in international currencies. Fix this problem by building your Magento VPS which supports multiple currencies and tax rates. It supports customization of your site in local languages, right to left text, and local cookie notification policies.
Magento is a fantastic piece of software, with an ever growing database of themes, plugins, and support. Also, this does not even take into account the sheer power of the system on its own! If you are looking to start an eCommerce site soon, look no further than a Magento VPS running with SkySilk.
