Almost our customers who vote for Nexcess have the magento site more than 500 products. We can understand why because Nexcess design server to work with high load and high traffic. I think they are expert in this field, it ‘s easy to understand why they are in top #3 of our list Top 3 Best Magento Hosting.

In another word, we can say Nexcess as Magento Hosting Leading for years, but still if you don’t have too many products, the Nexcess price/month is too expensive for you, that ‘s why many people don’t vote Nexcess. But if you own the magento shop with more than 500 products or traffic more than 20k/days visits, Nexcess is a perfect choice for you in their big hosting plan from SIP 200.

We recently change the top 3 in above list since we got the different feedback from our customers. In 2015, we sent out another 457 survey emails about magento hosting to update top list. Here is result for Top 3 Best Magento Hosting 2015 Award Winning Companies

  1. I think the second choice is only used for high traffic magento. For normal, average and small site, the first choice is the best. So the second choice will be the best for high traffic site what take > 5k/day

  2. I think the magento hosting need a cache solution and only the first one in your list support cache. I don’t think 2 remain hosting companies will provide the good service for magento.

  3. I am wondering if you have any tutorial about memcached configuration or supercacher configuration. I already got the first option and everything look fine with fast magento site. But still, I still not do any performance configuration, I think it should faster if I do so. You know the faster site ‘s always nicer :). Thanks

  4. For a best magento hosting, what do your think the different from redis and memcached? I hear from many people that redis ‘s faster than memcached but it ‘s difficult to find out the hosting company who support redis.

    1. Redis cache would be better for the source code base on Zend Framework and you see, Magento base on Zend Framework, that ‘s why people think it work faster with redis. But base on our experience, they work the same speed, at least not too much different for traffic site under 20K visits/day.

    1. Yes, I think you are right, I got the chat confirm from them about that. And I think it ‘s really nice choice to save money. But it ‘s slow even though it work. To me, SiteGround still faster a lot. Does anyone here try Nexcess?

    2. False information. ipage do not support magento. They dont even support PHP SOAP which means you cannot support integration of Fdex, ups or shipping system on your magento

  5. “Award winning” ?? Really? Could you point me to the link that is giving away these awards? I’m looking for a dedicated hosting co. for Magento.

    1. Our award winning detail base on the survey of our customers who used our services/products. You can see the detail in the blog post. If you looking for a dedicated hosting co. for magento who can provide you the stable/fast solution for big magento site, you can try Nexcess, they are the #1 in big magento solution.

  6. So your list only right in 2014? what are you base on to get this list? I always think Nexcess is the best! If your list is right, I believe the magento site will have the specify statistic traffic, not all of cases.

  7. We meet one of the big problem here with the way to choose the best hosting. The best hosting can only be chosen base on the traffic and resource of website. I mean is the hosting package for the site is different from site to site base on it ‘s traffic. If I have the small site with 100 visits/day, it will different from site what get 10000 visits/day. In this case, do your choices different?

    1. Don’t bother with these “top 5” lists because they’re all rigged. They are affiliates so if you click on any of those hosts. This site gets $$

      There are no reputable websites that really give an unbiased review of magento hosts. This is why Magento created the partnership program

      1. You are welcome and we open for any comment. If you know how much $ a company have to pay for magento to join the partnership program, you will understand why our article is useful. Other than that, we help people choose the right option what save a lot of money in running and development, what we already meet in our development in the past.

        In the other hand, all of our options and risk free, people can choose, try and leave it if they think it is not good without paying any money.

        Thanks for comment!

      2. tom, why you think too hard. I think when a website with a good team like magento2x, if they publish an article, at least they already done the testing with a lot of research. Other than that, they are expert in this field. Follow their suggestion we have no risk but save much more time to do the research.

    1. I have a bad experience with hostgator, I don’t think they can host magento. They even don’t have the hosting landing page to show more detail about magento.

  8. Thanks for a good review about good hosting from a very noisy hosting business right now. But after I choose SiteGround and then move my site to that. It ‘s faster a lot but not good enough. I think it must load in 4 secs. What do I wrong?

      1. Actually, we need the server response time fast, it ‘s the first key value and that ‘s the reason why we choose this host but not other host. I would say yes for SiteGround what almost help my site load <= 2 secs. At a moment, I would say your top list is good to go.

        1. Of course, server response time is the most important. That ‘s the reason why we have to research many hosting plan to choose the right one. I think if you can get your site work <= 2 secs then you did a great job :).

    1. I think it ‘s good but you have to take care everything what I am afraid not many people can do. Even me, I am not sure how to make sure the 100% security and performance. A lot of stuffs can happen then so that for the best result, I think we need to use magento hosting where we are safe under an expert company who can take care the risk

    2. But need us doing the set up, they don’t do the magento server set up for us and then they don’t support the installation issue. It ‘s a lot of risk :(

      1. Yes, if you are magento server expert then you should buy dedicated server or vps and do the configuration yourself. It look much cheaper but much more expensive since you have to pay time to configure, maintain and take care the risk. Let ‘s say the vps + one full time admin will be expensive much more than a managed hosting what is taken cared by a expert magento company.

  9. I choose the first one and I see it ‘s faster a lot after moving. What should I do next to make it even more faster? What should I do with supercacher? Thanks

    1. Yes, the best magento hosting can’t work well if you don’t configure it right. After moving, it should faster a little bit. Let ‘s install a full page cache extension like Zoom Full page cache, and then turn on the varnish proxy cache in cpanel and configure memcache for your magento site. It should faster a lot.

  10. I am working on mysql tune to help my server work faster with a lot of sql queries from magento. Do you have any detail tips from this? I see you only talk a little bit about that above to speed up magento but you don’t tell us the detail how to tune mysql. Thanks

  11. Thanks for a very detail review about hosting from your client base. I would like to say thank you to you and your team very much because of my company project what is faster a lot from your help. Your options are always right for everything relate to magento. Be honest, you guys are the best team I has ever known who expertise magento performance and system structure, everything come to you guys always take easy and perfect result. That ‘s cool and hope your team will growth soon so many people can enjoy the nice service.

  12. It ‘s cool to know a very good magento hosting solution in top list. They are working really well for me. Not sure if they are the best, but I am sure that they know exactly what they are doing with magento and just let us run in the right way. Thanks

  13. I think not too much change in 2015. The list is still like it ‘s on 2014. Not sure why you have a little change on 2015.

  14. Yea, the industry not change too much in 2015 with your list. I think they still working well. Nice magento hosting research, man. Thanks

    1. You are right, CloudMaker. The top #1 position, they keep improve their service to get the best performance for magento. It ‘s very good since we got a very good one in magento industry.

  15. It ‘s so nice. In the first time, I don’t believe a shared hosting can handle our magento website traffic with 500 products. But it ‘s handle our quite easy with GoGeek package from SiteGround. They do everything to make it fast and we see the conversion increase a lot after the speed faster. It ‘s so nice to pay a little money for a very high quality magento hosting. We should know this solution earlier but it ‘s fine now. If you still not tried it yet. I highly recommend you try to see their supercacher. Keep a nice work, you guys
