Magento e-commerce platform

Magento – one of the most popular open-source e-commerce platforms on the web, has been added to the 1-click Web Applications Installer in the Web Hosting Control Panel.

You and your reseller hosting customers will now be able to leverage a well-proven online store building platform, which is trusted by more than 240,000 merchants worldwide.

Magento – some history facts

Magento started out back in 2007 as a small project run by a private US company based in California. In 2010, eBay bought 49% of the company’s shares and as of June 2011, Magento is 100% owned by the biggest online retailer.

According to a research made in October 2014, Magento’s market share among the 30 most popular e-commerce platforms, including osCommerce, is 30%.

Why choose Magento for your e-store?

Magento was built for e-commerce sites specifically and comes preloaded with all the features and specs that you might need in order to put up a functional e-store.

It is highly scalable and will grow with your business regardless of what e-commerce features or enhancements you need.

As far as page speed is concerned, Magento is a winner among e-commerce solutions llike PrestaShop and OpenCart thanks to the fact that it uses high-end caching methods such as Varnish, as well as other DB optimization techniques.

As an open-source solution, Magento is supported by an ever-growing user community, which is dedicated to assisting you with your e-commerce store. You can post questions and browse the Magento Forum for answers to many technical issues.

Magento – technical specs

Magento employs the MySQL relational database management system (RDBMS), the PHP programming language and elements of the Zend Framework. It combines the conventions of the object-oriented programming paradigm and the model-view-controller architecture. Also, the entity–attribute–value model is used for data storage purposes.

Magento comes with a basic e-commerce theme, which can easily be customized by editing the PHP, HTML and CSS. If you want, you can easily install a custom theme via FTP or SSH without losing your content or the layout of the pages themselves.

The basic built-in functionalities can easily be extended using any of the plugins developed by the supportive Magento community. Also, integrating Magento with various third-party payment gateways, database applications, shipment tracking apps, etc. is quick and easy.

Where can I find Magento?

Magento is freely available for installation from the 1-click Web Apps Installer section of the Control Panel.

Just go to Installer -> Applications Installer and navigate to the E-commerce section. You will find Magento as the first script on the list:
