The way you want it
With all of its available extensions, you can make the most of the Magento commerce platform by adding your other vital business functions to its core features. Integrate accounting and finance, customer service, shipping, and more to create an ecommerce solution that's tailored to your business. All extensions are vetted for security before they hit the Magento Marketplace.
Reach out on all channels
You don’t even need to rely on your own store to sell. With omnichannel integrations, you can link your shop to other platforms – like Instagram, eBay, Amazon and more – and have all the numbers synced up with Magento. Reach as many customers as possible with minimal extra work.
Mixing web and mobile
Responsive sites are, of course, part of the Magento package. And with support for making progressive web apps that hit the perfect balance between desktop and mobile browsing, it can put you at the front of the pack when it comes to features. Give your customers the familiarity of desktop browsing with the performance of a mobile app.
With key functionality for multi-language stores and support for multiple currencies on the same ecommerce store, Magento Open Source is great out of the box for an online business operating across the world.

Questions about our Virtual Private Servers? Our FAQs provide answers to the most common queries. You can also contact our expert support team at any time.
What is Magento Open Source
Magento Open Source is an ecommerce platform that can be run on a server. Like its name suggests, it’s open source, so can be customised to look and feel however you like. It supports integrations with many popular ERP and CIM systems, as well as shipping platforms to give a full ecommerce experience.
What is a Virtual Private Server?
A Virtual Private Server (VPS) offers server resources shared over multiple virtual machines, providing the power and performance of a dedicated server but at a cheaper price point.
What is VPS hosting used for?
With full root access, you have complete control over how you configure your Virtual Private Server and can use it for whatever you want. Common uses for VPS hosting include as a web or mail server. A VPS is also a good option for creating a testing or staging environment.
What is the difference between VPS hosting and shared web hosting?
Shared web hosting and VPS hosting both offer shared resources, but web hosting has limitations on traffic and bandwidth and your sites/projects will start to slow down under heavy load. VPS hosting offers unlimited bandwidth so your sites will still perform even at the busiest times.
What is the difference between VPS hosting and Dedicated Servers?
VPS hosting and Dedicated Servers both give you complete control over server configuration, but because VPS resources are split over multiple physical servers, the price is much lower for the same levels of power and performance. Plus, you don't have the difficulty of managing server hardware.
How long does it take to set up a Virtual Private Server?
Fasthosts virtual servers can be provisioned and ready to go in as little as 55 seconds. SSD storage provides a noticeable difference in speed.
What operating systems are available?
You can choose between your favourite Linux operating systems (including CentOS 8, Debian 10 or Ubuntu 20.04), and Windows Server operating systems (Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019).
How much control do I have over my Virtual Private Server?
You have total control to customise your Fasthosts virtual server however you like. You can configure your VPS with whatever operating system, scripting language or database of your choosing without having to worry about managing a server yourself.
Is VPS hosting in the cloud?
Yes! Our VPS (virtual private servers) run on our cloud infrastructure, meaning they’re not hosted on any one server ‐ instead, virtual server resources are split between multiple physical machines. Being in the cloud also means they're scalable to suit your needs.
