eCommerce hosting from HostPapa

At HostPapa, we take your eCommerce seriously, this is why we’ve partnered with the leading tools and technologies so that your eCommerce site is not only fast-loading, easy-to-use and good-looking, but so that you don’t have pay extra for it as well!

Get up and running in seconds with the best eCommerce platforms like in just 1-click. We’ll worry about the technical stuff, you only have to worry about doing what you do best:to sell!

What is eCommerce?

ECommerce consists in the distribution, sale, purchase, marketing and supply of information of products or services through the Internet. With the growing popularity of the Internet in the mid-90s, selling services through the network using electronic means such as credit cards as a form of payment, became a faster and simpler option. Since then, companies have been worried about competing for this growing segment and its demands.

Why should I consider eCommerce for my business?

Keep in mind that eCommerce is here to stay and grow. This is a way of doing money and having your own business without the investments of a physical space. With eCommerce you will not find any barriers nor borders, the geographical spaces do not limit your target and, the real deal here, online purchases are becoming the most important kind of business all around the World. But keep in mind that the most important value in your eCommerce campaign will be your creativity, if you don’t offer a truly differentiating value proposition, it becomes difficult to emerge as one of the strongest competitors.

The importance of design and appearance

Since there’s no personal interaction with customers, the design and layout of your website are vital. Think of your website as being the “face” of your company. You could have the greatest products in the world and provide customer service that’s second-to-none, but potential customers will never get to experience this unless they actually make a purchase. First impressions count! So keep in mind that your eCommerce hosting is a complementary tool to your site design.

The importance of speed for eCommerce

Speed is especially important for an eCommerce site. Customers are impatient and the faster you can get them to the purchase point, the more likely they are to buy. Website speed is also a way that customers evaluate your reliability as a merchant, you’ll want to make sure that your eCommerce hosting loads really fast. A slow loading eCommerce site makes the user feel annoyed and is very unlikely to receive many sign ups, sales or any kind of conversions.

The importance of onsite searchability

An often-overlooked element of an eCommerce hosting is an onsite search engine. An effective search tool should provide an optimal number of relevant results quickly. Navigation is also key – and refers not just to the menu bar on your site, but the various paths that visitors can take to find products. Successful eCommerce sites allow customers to search for products by category, by brand, by simple keyword search or even by color or size. The categories you choose of course must reflect the types of products you’re selling, but take the time here to really think through how different visitors may search. You can’t sell something that cannot be found!
