Hostway Brings Professional-Grade E-Commerce to Businesses of All Sizes

Enables businesses to provide the best possible online buying experience

DALLAS – Today, Hostway introduces affordable cloud-based Managed Magento e-commerce solutions that combine Hostway’s full suite of application management services with the scalability and security of the cloud.


Other entry level e-commerce solutions cut corners by using multi-tenant environments, or require large annual commitments of five figures and beyond for managed cloud servers. By contrast, Hostway’s solution delivers a professional-grade platform and services at a fraction of the cost.

“Developers and merchants need a cost-effective solution that allows them to build and optimize their storefronts, and one that they won’t outgrow as their venture gains momentum,” said John Enright, general manager of Web & Applications at Hostway. “Our solution provides the full functionality of the feature-rich Magento platform without all of the cost and complexity that goes into provisioning and maintaining the application.”


Managed Magento Starter is $99.95 per month and is ideal for managing and maintaining one store. Managed Magento Advanced is $199.95 per month and adds support for multiple stores along with greater processing power, storage and capacity. Both solutions are specifically tuned to deliver optimal performance for Magento storefronts and can be scaled with additional resources as the customers traffic and activity grows.


The Hostway e-commerce service is powered by Microsoft’s Azure framework with access to Hostway’s 24x7x365 team of Magento Certified Solution Specialists. Hostway’s specialists work directly with clients to get them up and running, and manage all aspects of ongoing e-commerce service operations, such as software and infrastructure updates, maintaining backups, patching, 24x7 monitoring, resource scaling, and performance optimizations.  By offloading all of the complexity involved in managing the platform, Hostway allows its clients to focus on managing their storefronts and growing revenue.


Now available worldwide, both of the Hostway e-commerce services run Magento Community Edition (versions 1.9 or the recently released 2.0). Additional information is available at
