(The Hosting News) – Nexcess, the industry’s leading provider of Magento hosting solutions and a Magento Platinum Hosting Partner, is proud to announce their Diamond-level sponsorship of the 2013 Magento Imagine eCommerce conference.

The Magento Imagine eCommerce conference is one of the online retail sector’s most important opportunities to engage with leading international experts in the field. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to network with peers in the industry, share ideas, collaborate, and make new contacts. More than 1,500 merchants, developers, and Magento enthusiasts from all over the world will be attending.

This year’s conference will take place at the M Resort in Las Vegas, from April 8th through 10th, and will feature an awesome combination of keynote speakers, industry players, and the great entertainment for which Las Vegas is famous.

Nexcess is known for its industry-leading Magento eCommerce hosting solutions, a reputation gained through a commitment to building an infrastructure that is designed to get the best from Magento. Nexcess’ Magento hosting platform is housed in wholly-owned data centers and is highly optimized, ensuring that shoppers have the retail experience they expect, without any conversion-killing slowness.

“X.commerce has really done a fantastic job of making Imagine eCommerce the essential conference for Magento merchants, developers, and web hosts,” raved Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, “We’re thrilled to be sponsoring the Imagine eCommerce conference for a third consecutive year, and look forward to contributing all we can to this amazing community of Magento enthusiasts.”

Nexcess made numerous improvements to their Magento hosting platform in 2012. The deployment of PHP-FPM, the PHP FastCGI Processing Manager, brought a number of benefits, including separate threads for PHP processes and advanced process management, increasing the reliability and responsiveness of Magento and other PHP applications.

Nexcess also created Turpentine, an extension that allows Magento to take full advantage of the speed increases offered by the Varnish very fast reverse proxy. Turpentine and Varnish are deployed across Nexcess’ Magento platform. Turpentine was released under the open source GPL2 license, allowing community members to benefit from the improved Varnish integration and contribute to further development.

A number of Nexcess’ team of experts will be on hand to answer any questions attendees might have. They’re always happy to discuss their optimized Magento hosting solutions and the other products and services they offer.

Tickets for the Magento Imagine eCommerce 2013 conference will be available from January 15th.
