Ann Arbor, Michigan – (The Hosting News) – July 1, 2009 – Web hosting service provider and Magento hosting solutions company, NEXCESS.NET has indicated that since the launch of its new Magento SIP hosting plans, which debuted in May, they have become their fastest-selling hosting plan.
Chris Wells, CEO of Nexcess remarked, ”We’ve been really gratified with the feedback. We were sure we’d put together a winning package geared specifically towards clients who were interested in running Magento-based online stores and were happy to see that we’d hit the mark. The popularity of the plans has necessitated adding new SIP servers faster than anticipated. We actually had to scramble a bit at first to keep up with the demand – but we keep plenty of extra hardware at our data center both for SIPs and all our other hosting plans, so there were no fulfillment problems.”
Mr. Wells added, ”Magento is a complex piece of software, and we’ve put a lot of effort into figuring out how to make it run optimally. A lot of our competitors try to run Magento as if it were just another piece of web software. It clearly needs a specialized environment to provide the performance level e-commerce sites require. Customers can really tell a difference when they move to a SIP from a generic one-size-fits-all solution.”
The Magento SIP (Secure Isolated Platform) plans consist of carefully chosen software and hardware which have been extensively tested and optimized to run the Magento e-commerce software as securely and efficiently as possible. The plans have proved popular because they include everything needed to get a Magento web store up and running smoothly, according to Wells.
Nexcess will be expanding their Magento SIP plans in the near future to include the recently released Enterprise edition of the Magento software, and will also offer SIP plans that use load-balanced clusters for very high traffic hosting scenarios.
Mr. Wells concluded, ”We were the first Magento Enterprise hosting partner, and can offer customized hosting packages using the Enterprise software. We’ll be updating our offerings to include Magento Enterprise Edition SIPs very soon.”
