1.2 A good and not too expensive web hosting with enough disk space and bandwidth

Hosting service

Good web hosting can be hard to find. I live in Holland and use a couple of dutch web hosts . I’ve found that some are better then others and that this doesn’t always mean you have to pay more. Some hosting providers provide 24/7 service and others don’t. I know from experience that you will be working on your webshop 24/7 and that it will be very annoying if you have a problem and have to wait till the next day to ask you’re hosting about it.

I have found Hostgator to be very reliable and cheap! And even more important Prestashop will run on any of there web hosting plans!

Technical requirements Prestashop

Of course good hosting isn’t all. You need hosting that supports Prestashop which means you need a specific amount of disk space and bandwidth. Next to that Prestashop needs at least one database. I’m going to tell you how to use a MySQL database by using phpMyAdmin because in my opinion it is the best freeware database solution and it comes with almost every host.

Prestashop says you need the following technical requirements so if you find a hosting that uses more then this you’re always safe:

  • System: Unix, Linux or Windows. Unix is highly recommended;
  • Web server: Apache Web server 1.3 or later;
  • PHP 5.2 or later (You may have to activate PHP 5 on your hosting service);
  • MySQL 5.0 or later (At least one database);
  • At least 32 Mb of RAM on your server (64 Mb is comfy, the more the better).

So concerning hosting next to the technical requirements of Prestashop look for the following:

  • Cheap but not to cheap;
  • 24/7 service at least by email (I think an online chat service is a very good way to stay in contact with you’re hosting);
  • A real company and not a student that has a server at home (no hard feelings boys);
  • A host that uses phpMyAdmin would be nice but isn’t necessary.

So if you don’t know where to look i recommend Hostgator. It is probably your best solution. If anybody has experience with other good hosting company’s like Hostgator in a specific country please comment or send me an email and I will post it here.
