  • Platform: Windows Server 2008 or above
  • Web Server: Internet Information Service (IIS) 7.0 or above

  • SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) installation capability

Space Requirement:

  • Disk Space: It depends on your website configuration; however, we recommend at least 100 MB disk space to start. To avoid future downtime, your hosting provider should also allow you to increase the disk space when needed.
  • Database Space: It depends on your website usage and the amount of data (products, customers) that you intend to store, but we recommend a database size of at least 200 MB to start. To avoid future downtime, your hosting provider should allow an increase in database space when needed.

Additional factors:

The following points should be kept in mind while selecting your hosting plan:

  • Guaranteed website up time (Availability)
  • Availability of monitoring service, so that you are notified if your site goes down.
  • Ability to add space as needed
  • Availability of support
  • How often your site’s data will be backed up and for how long the backup is retained
  • Scalability of your plan (traditional or cloud based)
