Hope this article can help you who need to choose the best hosting solution for your Magento website. Feel free to leave your feedback in comment area, I will do my best to keep response in reasonable time.

Now let ‘s go with the problem and the solution.

Problem on way to find out a Best Magento Hosting.

If you meet one of these problems, I would like to recommend you take a look at my solutions:

  • You already have a host for your Magento website but it doesn’t work as you expect, it ‘s too slow and usually out of memory.
  • You are on way to find the best magento host for your magento development and publish. You want to figure out what is the best in the case there too many magento hosting providers.
  • Your magento shop is too slow with current number of users and you need to improve your magento website speed by moving to the better host.
  • You are on way to expand your business and need the very stable host solution for many magento websites where you can also host other websites like wordpress, drupal, joomla, prestashop, opencart…
  • And the last reason is you are having a very good magento shop, it ‘s fast enough but you still want to get it become amazing fast by the high caching technique with the expect loading speed should be from 100x to 250x in practice.

If you are in one of above problems, welcome to my solutions, hope you will get something useful for your businesss.

Solution to figure out the Best Magento Hosting.

If you have a host, you will have no way to change the configuration of server hosting. If you have VPS/Server, instead of showing you a lot of instructions how to install and configure a very good VPS/Server what meet magento requirements, here is a list of hosting providers who already have all of features what meet perfect with Magento requirements. Almost them have a good price with different offers and the very good thing is their support team work very well, it just one of requirement we really need when we choose a good hosting provider. Even though if they are not perfect but they support well, they will become perfect.

1. Siteground Magento Hosting.

SiteGround Magento Hosting

- One FREE domain for LIFE + One-Click install Magento + Free Magento theme intergrationSiteground is really meet with almost Magento user who is on way to find a good solution for Magento. I have to say that my customers usually choose this solution even though they have many Magento shops what is working on their hosting providers. The reason is Siteground have the special optimize package for Magento where they actually do the optimization for Magento with a lot of features in showcase. At least until now I can they they are the best magento hosting provider.

- And, you know, Siteground is the only one hosting provider on the world support Memcached and Server cache for hosting from maybe Oct of 2012. With cloudflare support already, Siteground have 3 cache levels for you improve your site speed. It ‘s impress me a lot for these features, it ‘s again speed up my website.

- Even though it ‘s a best magento hosting but they have to handle many sites in the same server in the case they provide shared web hosting. In the case they doesn’t limit bandwidth and space then they have to do somehow to make all of sites work fast. That ‘s why they limit inode and CPU. So why the best magento hosting have to limit it? Because they have to keep a good speed for all of sites. They can’t allow one account on server do a lot of spam and make all of other accounts become slow. It ‘s one of a key what make their hosting fast. But you don’t have to worry about this limit, I am pretty sure it ‘s more than enough for you.

- The another reason why I bring Siteground as top of recommend magento hosting provider is the business focus and optimization for Magento, you even bring your Magento work even better 3 or 4 times with the resource configuration 100% only for Magento with Siteground Semi Dedicated Hosting. The future will never limit for your Magento hosting even though you have very many visits/day.

- Well, sometimes I would like to put Siteground as the dedicated choice for Magento Hosting without any other providers in recommend list. But as I told, I only used Siteground from 2010 and need more time to test more about their quality, until now, everything is working very smooth. Highly recommend Siteground as your Magento Hosting. Highly recommend to use Siteground service.

2. A2 Magento Hosting.

Hostgastor Magento Hosting

- Wait, what we want to do is trying to figure out the best Magento Hosting so why we go to the second choice? The reason is belong to the customers. Almost my customers like the first choice but some of others like the second and third choice.

- Establishment in March 1999, A2 Hosting has been a world-leading provider of web hosting service. With SSD ready support it will help the page load faster 300% without any caching solution. I really like their One-click install Magento, it save me a lot of time every time I deploy for my customer, it take you 5 mins to get Magento up and running instead of an hour to upload a heavy Magento source and database. I do know many hosting providers but the reason why I choose A2 Hosting to my best magento hosting list not only because their hosting quality for Magento work very well, but also almost other opensources I used, everything work well without any problem.

- I am not clever enough to figure out why they can have the server meet a lot of requirements like that but keep everything work very smooth but it ‘s the truth. And one more thing is support, sometimes it will take 2 or 3 hours but they always priority and they know what issue is urgent, if your hosting down, they will help you right away.

- Our team work with them for a long time from 2008 and we didn’t meet any problem when we use their services especially Magento hosting. Not the best magento hosting in my eye but it ‘s ok. So why I put them as the second choice? Just because I can see they don’t want to focus much for only Magento hosting server even though they are very good now.Anyway, highly recommend to use their service.

3. Arvixe Magento Hosting.

arvixe  Magento Hosting

- Start up Business from 2003 Arvixe is my third favorite hosting provider in the best magento hosting list. It ‘s stable, flexible and everything is very good, just my team didn’t use too much their service so that I have to put them as the second rating. With  A2 Hosting I get 3 Magento sites work well  with $4.97/month. It ‘s amazing cost for Magento hosting, but it ‘s really work very well in this cost. With Arvixe, I do hosting for 2 Magento sites in one package Personal Class PRO and it work well too. But I have to say these sites only get <= 100 unique visits/day.

- Anyway, Arvixe is really one of best choice for you, for Magento hosting you should consider, other than that it have FREE domain for LIFE with package >= 12 months, it ‘s really full solution for a site up and live.

- Again, Highly recommend to use Arvixe service, you will use them again after first project.

4. Green Geeks Magento Hosting.

greengeeks  Magento Hosting

- FREE domain for LIFEand One-Click to install Magentomake me consider to choose their service as the first option after 2 options above. But in the long run and for safe I usually choose option (1) and (2), it just because I used their service a lot, not because I think their service is not good enough. I only use Green Geeks for 2 years now, and it make me surprise with the cost and the quality.

- To me, I don’t know how they can make money with their cheap deal but anyway, I really recommend to use their service. Not sure why I put them as third option, if I can, I will put Arvixe and Green Geeks as the same rank for Best Magento hosting solution.

Best Magento Hosting Solution Summary

After all in way to find out the best magento hosting, if you already have a fast magento server but you still want to increase the speed up to around 100x or 200x more than normal magento host and you willing pay much for it, we also have a perfect solution for you with the a dedicated server include the combination of Linux OS + Apache + Nginx + Varnish with the configuration only for Magento. It ‘s too advantage so that I can’t write down all of instructions here, if you really want to have it, please contact us for more information or send us a request for a free quote.

Again, be careful in hosting selection or you just lose money. Let ‘s say if you choose iPage to host Magento, you will be totally wrong, even though iPage is very good to host WordPress but it can’t host Magento because the memory_limit is lower than 250MB and iPage have no VPS or Dedicated server option, so that you will have no way to expand your hosting plan. You will get the answer no from iPage when you want your hosting work with Magento.

And welcome any comment, thanks.

    I am not sure other options but I can verify that siteground is one of very good hosting provider for Magento. I am using their services for 3 of my customer shops.

    • magentohostsolution July 23, 2012 at 1:09 AM #

      You are right, one of most hosting provider I like. I am having more than 5 customers who are using their services. All of them feel comfortable.

  2. Joe July 27, 2012 at 11:39 PM #

    I tried to go with Hostgator as your first option, everything work well with Baby package, but it ‘s seem it ‘s slower than what I expect. Any idea can help?

    • magentohostsolution July 27, 2012 at 11:42 PM #

      The speed is belong to many factors, what ‘s your country? Did you try to test the server speed first? To me it ‘s reasonable or one more solution that you can try to upgrade to Business package what just take you some USD/year more.

  3. Brad September 21, 2012 at 9:24 PM #

    Thanks for you post, it help me a lot since I fail in the first time to choose magento host. It ‘s really work with hostgastor

      Thanks, just tell me if you have any problem.

  8. krish April 3, 2013 at 3:59 AM #

    Sounds Great!!!! I have really liked and used on my client website and personal website. Everyone client was satisfied magento platform. This platform is really good work.

    • magentohostsolution May 4, 2013 at 7:54 PM #

      It ‘s of course a perfect platform what have everything we need for ecommerce.

  9. Tsaong June 15, 2013 at 12:58 AM #

    i a newbie on magento, i was wondering if any of you could me his opinion about Actually i have 2 websites hosting on their shared server, but i heard for magento its much better on a dedicated on. The only thing is the price….

    • magentohostsolution September 16, 2013 at 3:41 AM #

      Hi Tsaong, is not a good provider for magento. They doesn’t provide magento special package with magento experience team. If you already got your site work on their hosting I believe you will realize how good is it. It ‘s cheap but you just lose money when using them.

  10. shaby September 16, 2013 at 1:11 AM #

    im thinking of choosing the growbig plan from siteground for my magento based website…. is it a good idea or do you prefr some other plan..??

    • magentohostsolution September 16, 2013 at 3:37 AM #

      Hi Shaby, you are right with Growbig option, it ‘s the most popular choice and good enough for your magento site what included supercacher feature.

  11. Midas Media January 25, 2014 at 10:52 AM #

    Decent writeup here, but I’m amazed at how cheap you can get some hosting in the USA.

    We run Magento on virtual servers which cost upwards of £50 per month, that’s about $800+ a year!

    • magentohostsolution February 8, 2014 at 5:53 AM #

      EUR 50 per month is used for VPS what can handle magento site with roughly 500 000 visits/day. For the cheap hosting package in this article, it is used for around < 50k visits/day for the good experience user. But still, the most reason why we use the hosting is magento expert support and fix server bug for free. Let ‘s think about a problem happen with a VPS and a hosting. If you own a VPS, you have to pay 100% the fee your own, but if it happen with a hosting then the hosting company have to fix it right away for you for free since there are a tons customers pay for it.

      • Jesica February 9, 2014 at 9:15 PM #

        I don’t think 50EUR will work in general. It ‘s too expensive. I am having 3 magento sites what take 3k visits/day for each but they are all work very well with siteground hosting. It waste too much money for expensive VPS like that.

        • Magento2X April 24, 2014 at 4:57 AM #

          You are right, Jesica. For site what only take you 3k vists/day, you only need shared web hosting for magento. Just need the hosting company support caching and they design the server for magento.

  12. wp2x April 30, 2014 at 6:29 PM #

    I see people are talking a lot about this in magento official forum here: . It seem they have the same idea with you.

  13. Philip August 30, 2014 at 7:27 AM #

    I do have a magento site what is working well with A2 Hosting. To me they are the best since everything come to them very easy and just fine. Can you give me the top reason why you choose another one is the top in this your list? I am on way to have another magento project, so maybe I will look at your choice to see if it work well or not. And please tell me in the way you don’t care to promotion. Thanks.

    • magentohostsolution September 4, 2014 at 10:21 AM #

      The top reason why we put SiteGround to the #1 is the caching. SiteGround is the only one in very many hosting companies on the world who provide all of caching solution for magento and work well in a package supercacher. If you try you will see why it ‘s different.

      • Philip September 7, 2014 at 11:39 PM #

        Thanks, it sound like I miss the dynamic cache. It ‘s nice to try siteground option to see the difference.

  14. Magento2X September 12, 2014 at 1:49 AM #

    Some of your options match with our options in . I think it ‘s really helpful if we can work together to make sure the options we choose is always right to help people save time and money. Thanks for a good reviews.

    • magentohostsolution September 25, 2014 at 11:18 PM #

      Thanks Magento2X, nice to know and work with an expert magento team.

  15. Kitrik October 5, 2014 at 6:13 PM #

    Do you provide the development service? I need to optimize my magento server. Please contact me if you do. Thanks

    • Kai October 18, 2014 at 1:17 AM #

      Just need to use the contact form, they did the optimization for me, it ‘s really fast now.

      • Kitrik October 24, 2014 at 10:00 PM #

        Thanks Kai, I already got a guy to support me from magentohostsolution. I see they only support well the issues relate to hosting, server and optimization. They don’t support magento development.

        • magentohostsolution October 31, 2014 at 8:36 AM #

          Thank you, Kitrik. You are very nice customer. We willing help you any other performance issue. Just send us message via contact form

  16. Kyle November 5, 2014 at 3:05 AM #

    I choose the first option SiteGround with package Starter, how much traffic it can work well with it? My magento site only have 20 simple products

    • magentohostsolution November 5, 2014 at 6:04 AM #

      Belong to many other factors, but I would say if you do the optimization well, it can work fast with 1000 visits/day. I may still work well in 2000 visits/day but in this traffic rank you need to upgrade to higher package GrowBig or GoGeek to make sure it work smooth without downtime. Please feel free to send me via contact form if you have any more question. Or just simply comment here, I will do my best to help you figure out the best solution for magento site.

      • Kyle November 9, 2014 at 11:27 PM #

        Thanks team. I see your option work well here for me.

  17. Nicolas November 20, 2014 at 3:01 AM #

    Just buy the hosting and move to new hosting then it will work fast enough or do I need to do any more configuration? I see magento have full page cache solution, do we need to use it after moving?

  18. Deneil November 30, 2014 at 6:33 AM #

    The hosting can be a good choice since we have no way to set up server/vps yourself. Do you have any cloud vps solution in the case I want to do server set up myself? Is it a good choice?

    • magentohostsolution December 5, 2014 at 5:55 AM #

      If you look a cloud vps then I think you can check DigitalOcean or Amazon EC2. They have a good plan for you. But of course, you have to take care the risk yourself. I don’t recommend them if you are not familiar with magento server set up and optimization.

      • Deneil December 13, 2014 at 6:20 AM #

        Thanks, I think the shared and managed magento hosting is the best choice for me now. I have no way to hire a dedicated developer/admin guy to manage my vps :).

  19. Giner December 18, 2014 at 8:58 AM #

    I finally choose SiteGround for my magento hosting solution. I see the speed is better a lot after moving. But I also see you show here the supercacher what is potential make it even faster. How I can use it? What should I do next after moving? Thanks

  20. Kitrik December 22, 2014 at 7:29 PM #

    Magento Hosting Solution for a average traffic site what we can use shared magento hosting package are match with your list. But for a big site like 100k visits/day, your list will not work because it have to move the dedicated server what have a dedicated environment and network resource. Anyway, it ‘s a very good list for anyone who get started with magento and want to make their magento site faster.

    • magentohostsolution December 29, 2014 at 10:03 PM #

      100k visits/day is a very big ecommerce site. In this case, you already got a dedicated team who take care the magento server for you so that you don’t need to buy hosting. If you want to leave the magento hosting job for the third party, in this case, you need to buy managed vps/server plan what included the management and maintain your magento site. It ‘s the best way to approach

  21. MassL January 18, 2015 at 11:54 PM #

    It ‘s a really nice magento hosting solution what I am looking for. Thank admin for a very useful tips to help my magento site work fast without any too much work. Just move and it fast as I need. Great to do a business with magento and it ‘s fast. Thanks

  22. Hul Alec January 31, 2015 at 5:24 AM #

    I think you choose the first one is good for magento hosting solution, but I don’t think greengeek is a good choice, 2 years ago, I have a magento on them but it work very slow until I move to SiteGround and get it work really fast.

    • Kitrik February 14, 2015 at 11:45 PM #

      After 2 years, many things changes, I think they do their job better now. But if you are happy with your current choice then you just keep it :). Don’t change to another one.

    • magentohostsolution February 27, 2015 at 5:58 PM #

      Thanks Hul, the best magento hosting is not for every one, it is chosen and used by you only, we only refer the good list what we think they are good provider. Our list is not change in 2015, all of hosting keep working well, we have some more providers doing their job well but you can see the above list are the best list.

      • Hul Alec March 18, 2015 at 9:42 AM #

        Thanks ad for quick reply. Anyway, I see top #1 in 2014 and 2015 is the same with your list. So, it ‘s good to hear it still good until now.
