Three Ecommerce Web Hosting Considerations

The idea is in your mind, and the plans are in motion. You want to open an e-commerce store where you can sell products or services to customers. But first you need to find an e-commerce web hosting solution, because nothing is possible without one. Here are three considerations that will help you make the right decision on a hosting provider.

1. Budget

It is easy to get tempted by the expensive web hosting options for e-commerce sites, and the features they offer. While you may think going for the biggest package is a good idea, consider your budget. Is your business going to bring enough money to justify that expenditure?

For most ecommerce operations, it is best to start with a lower tier plan, and then upgrade when you are generating the sales to justify the investment.

2. Security

Your customers want to feel safe when they are on your website, especially when they are about to pay. When selecting between ecommerce web hosting services, look at the security options for the entire site. Are you getting the best level of encryption available? Are there options to integrate secure payment portals such as PayPal to your ecommerce store?

3. Self-Hosting vs. SaaS

You have two options when finding a hosting provider. You can either choose a basic web host, and create your online store from scratch. Or you can go with Store as a Service, or SaaS, where you are provided with many of the features and platforms that you will need to securely sell products online.

We recommend that you go with the latter option, as it provides far more assistance in setting up the store. Unless you have the technical knowledge and experience to build an ecommerce store from scratch, SaaS is the ideal solution. There will be SaaS options that provide you with the security you need, and fit within your budget.

Commercial Electronics Repair And Safety Toolkit

This is for the home user. He can just be a regular homeowner with today’s familiar twenty-first century modcons. Or he could be one of the many who are working from home. If not that, he is a regular DIY enthusiast over the weekends, doing as much as he can in the little time he has to spare. But perhaps a commercial electronics repair and safety toolkit is going to be of even more importance to the small scale commercial and industrial operator.

The latter operator generally has a lot more on his plate than the others, although the homeowner, work from home entrepreneur and DIY practitioner should never, at any time, underestimate the importance of securing all electrical circuits, portable or installed, no matter for what purpose it is used for. Do not, we repeat, do not tamper with any electrical switchboards if at any time there is a suspicion that it has been damaged.

Folks usually notice that something is amiss when their lights or wall sockets suddenly trip. Many folks are guilty of simply going to the property’s main circuit board, usually installed in a central location against the wall, and tripping or flicking the switches ‘on and off, and on again’. For the time being, everything may seem in working order. Much later and there may only be a reoccurrence months later, the same thing happens again.

Something is indeed amiss, and folks, this is dangerous stuff. When ‘minor’ incidents like this occur, do not tamper. Get hold of a qualified and licensed electrician or circuit board technician at the earliest convenience. Allow him to come over and do a manual inspection. While the damage or fault may only seem minor for now, this inspection will end up saving lives.
