What e-commerce host in US do you know?

It happened so that my several clients need to host their e-shops, so I decided to ask you guys about the most reliable hosts that can be good for running e-shops.
The one company I know is hostrail.com, but still not sure about the e-commerce hosting opportunities.
Any experience? What other hosts can you recommend me?

Hello luxurid,

To tell you the truth, there's no such thing called as an e-commerce host. Or at least I've never heard of it before. Most if not all hosts could actually help accomodate your request. But hosting e-commerce sites are almost the same as hosting normal websites. We've hosted quite a few e-commerce sites and have never had them ask us... is this an e-commerce server?

A website is a website. How you link it and make it work is something else entirely. So any hosts at all could be your host. It only depends on which host do you trust and would you give your money to.

Hope my explanation helps a little.

There *is* something call e-commerce hosting, but this usually means the e-shop (or e-whatever) is an SaaS that the provider developed and have it hosted for the customer for a fee. The provider is also responsible for managing the SaaS application, including but not limited to management, updates, patches and etc.

An example of such hosting would be 3dcart.com (US based), or storeviva.com (SG based).

Now, how does hostrail come into the picture of e-commerce hosting? I don't see them having anything they developed and/or owning any web applications that behaves like an SaaS. The most is that they help you configure Magento for the first time and that's it.

AND THAT IS NOT e-commerce hosting. If you define hostrail an e-commerce hosting provider, you can basically call ALL hosting providers on Earth an e-commerce hosting provider.

Agree. since the stability is the key factor, the provider is the one of the most attractive for this purpose.

Can also name webintellects.com for the quality solutions of this type.

Among suggested I suppose hostingsource.com is really worthy host. They seem to support all the needed features and are enough for the choice.

Another company, for budget solutions, is santrex.net. Maybe you will disagree, but having some experience with them in the past I believe they are worth enough.

What is the ecommerce software that these providers developed/deployed?

Also heard good things about hostingsource. According to my information the provider supports and includes into plan's features all the majorly used eCommerce software, including Magento, ZenCart and other apps.

Like aodat2 mentioned in the previous response, any decent host would be able to do it. There's nothing special about e-commerce, it's just a software application after all.

Shouldn't it depend on the ecommerce script instead?

If you need Magento, use Simplehelix.com, they are optimized for running e-shops on this script.

To conclude as of 28th June 2011 8pm EEST HostRail and C & C Advanced Online Services Ltd is officially closed.
I guess it's gone for good now. Not sure how many readers (or perhaps, victims) listened to the sock puppets though.
