An “online store” is a deceptively simple concept. Nearly everyone who wants an online store in 2024 has seen hundreds, if not thousands, of them. We can easily list what a store needs: product pages, galleries, a clear checkout process.

You probably understand the back office requirements as well. Yes, there needs to be inventory management, the ability to calculate shipping costs and taxes, analytics, reporting tools for accounting, and more.

Then, there’s the world of online hosting. Again, you can probably intuitively grasp the hosting requirements for an eCommerce store: speed, reliability, security, and the ability to scale when traffic peaks during sales. Plus, you’ll want support when you need it the most, so expert service around the clock is the most desirable.

Moving from ideas to actually building a store, the reality sets in very quickly. Some platforms have major design constraints (which is why so many stores look similar), while others have less-than-transparent fees that can impact your business. To distract you, offerings are filled with vague promises and ultra-premium features that aren’t actually useful for most retailers.

At Elementor, we want to help you unlock your store’s full potential and ensure a smooth and successful experience as you build and grow your online presence.

How do we do that? By leveraging one of the most advanced Cloud Hosting platforms in the business, supported by Google Cloud, Cloudflare Enterprise CDN, and with all plans including a premium SSL certificate. The platform is among the best in the business and features auto-scaling, ensuring website availability and perfect visitor experience even during peak traffic. This enterprise-grade infrastructure ensures your site runs lightning-fast, regardless of visitor location, making your store loved by both shoppers and search engines alike.

All throughout 2024, Elementor Hosting consistently rates among the best hosting providers in visitor experience (monthly Core Web Vitals Technology Report). This report, which utilizes data from Google’s Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX) is among the best independent experience benchmarks available.

Recent performance boosts are sure to take Elementor Hosting even higher in the rankings. We will elaborate on our breakthrough achievements in this space during July.

We then pair our hosting with powerful eCommerce tools that optimize the shopping experience:

We start with WooCommerce, trusted by some of the largest brands in the world for its open-source nature, operational ease, and endless customizability.

Then, we add the #1 WordPress Website Builder. Elementor is pre-installed in each of our eCommerce plans, allowing you to easily design your store.

Need more tools and elements to improve conversions? Our Sell Pro and Sell Pro+ plans include a premium WooCommerce theme valued at $99/year. This theme is not only incredibly fast but also boasts built-in, state-of-the-art, conversion and sales optimization tools.
