Can I use Magento on iPage?

magento-logoFor website owners looking to run and grow an e-commerce site, finding a reliable shopping cart to use on your site is important. Magento has developed a strong reputation as one of the higher quality shopping carts available to users.

As one of the more trusted web hosts in the industry, iPage has made a name for themselves for being a solid option for both bloggers and website owners looking to grow an e-commerce business. Along with the many marketing and security tools that they have to offer, iPage also provides users with four different shopping carts to choose from.

They include:

  • Magento
  • OpenCart
  • ZenCart
  • OSCommerce

As more proof of iPage’s commitment to offering easy e-commerce solutions, they also make it extremely easy to install your shopping cart of choice. If Magento is the shopping cart you plan on using, you can get set up by following these simple steps:

  • Step #1 –Go to your admin control panel
  • Step #2 – Run Simple Scripts
  • Step #3 – Find and install Magento
  • Step #4 – Fill-in necessary fields and complete installation

According to most users, this process should not take much longer than a few minutes. After installation, you should be able to setup your shopping cart according to the settings you are looking for and have no problems personalizing the cart to your unique needs.

If you end up going with iPage’s e-commerce plan, you can actually have the iPage support team install the Magento shopping cart for you to ensure that there are absolutely no issues. Unless you are extremely non tech savvy, however, you should have no problem using the Simple Scripts installer.

It should be noted that iPage is generally pretty good about providing support for their e-commerce based website owners as this is a major part of their user base. If you have any issues getting set up, do not be afraid to get in contact with them through the live chat or ticket option.
