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 or managed hosting
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.
