Managed and full service Magento shop hosting

Magento is one of the most famous ecommerce open source applications for building eshops. Numerous extensions, some for free, extend the already very powerful featureset of Magento.

The Managed Magento experience with SaaS Web

1 free domain

Choose a free domain with one of the following extensions: ch, at, biz, com, de, es, fr, info, net or org. If you like, you can move an existing domain to SaaS Web. Other extensions are optional.

1 free SSL certificate

The communication between the customers computer and the web server needs to be encrypted as it transmits sensitive/personal data. SaaS Web offers a certificate for one domain (with and without www prefix). On demand, an other type certificate or existing one that you already own can be set up.

Current version preinstalled

SaaS Web uses the newest package available directly from the community. You have all standard functionality at disposal with no constraint. You obtain an admin access and can manipulate Magento as you wish.

Support for commercial licence

SaaS Web insatlls by default the Magento Community Edition. If you need features like the multistore which is only available with the Magento Enterprise licence let us know in order to set up Magento accordingly.

Performance optimisation with Varnish cache

In order to boost Magentos performance, among others, we can install a Varnish cache in front of your store. The vistors will love it and search engines will rank you better. The varnish cache is an optional feature, please contact us for more information.

Free staging environment during store setup

SaaS Web sets up a staging environment for one month for free so you can build the shop without hassle. Once ready, SaaS Web will move it to production. If you desire, you can keep the staging website as test environment in order to check changes before applying them to the live site.

Standard theme selection

All available themes, free or not, can be used for the shop. You have no restriction regarding theme usage.

Use self developed themes

You can upload your own themes for your shop.

Free Piwik web statistics for visitor tracking

Piwik a an open source alternative to Google Analytics with the interesting advantage that the collected data is not shared with anyone else - only you will process the data.

Core, extension and theme updates

SaaS Web uses monitoring software but also keeps informed via mailing lists, community memberships and personal contacts in order to update the systems and applications on time. Some updates are automatic, others are manual, all manipulation is monitored and safe, so that a broken update can be reverted directly without further consequences.

Free VPN secured admin area

For obvious security reasons, SaaS Web proposes to use a VPN access to manage your website. SaaS Web sets up a single access for free, if you need other accounts, they will be charged. After activation, it will not possible to access the admin backend without the VPN. This is a “natural” way for preventing brute force attacks as the backend is not accessible anymore from the Internet.

Daily full backups of the Magento online store

SaaS Web runs daily full backups of your shop known as disaster recovery. In between, during update/upgrade actions, the shop might be backuped additionally (in case an update would fail, we can recover the store directly).

Intrusion & malware detection

You can’t prevent attacks, you can only protect and defend yourself. SaaS Web does regularly malware checks and uses sevral techniques in order to detect malicious activities at earliest stages (honeypots, blacklists).

Detailed information about Magento

Magento Community Edition represents the Magento free edition, which is one of the most popular online shop management systems. With its large featureset and well sorted extension repository, Magento can be used for any kind of online stores of any size (mostly large shops).

Large selection of themes

Magento integrates a template system in order to customise the design. You can find quite some themes on the Magento website. Commercial providers like Themeforest are quite popular to buy themes. If you want a high quality custom theme, you can ask SaaS Web for a quote.

Many extensions to enhance your store

Stores are unique and often require functionality which is not part of the standard setup. You can find a lot of extensions on the Magento website, some of them are free. Depending on your needs, it might be necessary to develop a custom extension. You can ask SaaS Web for a quote.

Multilingual shops

With Internet and a global logistic infrastructure, especially within Europe, the move to a multilang store is quite self-evident. Magento has a built in functionality for adding other languages to your store and to adapt the store to the regional specificities like currencies, the position of the currency symbol or commas and dots as delimiters.

Various ready to use payment provider modules

Paymill, Computop, PayOne.. just to name some popular payment providers. SaaS Web can give you some advice in case you hesitate between 2 providers.

SOAP API for custom integrations

Developers will enjoy working with the Magento SOAP API in order to programm custom integrations. The SOAP interface allows the processing of customer, product, categorie and sales data.

Efficient user management

The user and role management is focussed on small teams, but allows a fine grained permission attribution. In case you are not satisfied with the standard user management, you can use an extension which will modify it according to your needs.
