    1. Hi there Taroc,

      I know – so am I 🙂 Sorry for the delay – we went into lock down mode to get a new theme completed which we’re just about finished to we will be back to our hosting series very shortly.

      Stay tuned!

      1. I just found this post today.
        I’m very interested to read the next parts of this post.
        I’m building my store on my localhost and looking for a hosting solution now. I am using Woocommerce and my store is very small, ie, less than 50 products (including variations)

  1. Hey Colm, I highly appreciate the information and topic you discussed. It is really amazing to see that you are spreading awareness about the WooCommerce hosting. I represent Cloudways as Community Manager. We are a European Based Cloud Hosting providers with the integration of Amazon and DigitalOcean. We have our recipe of Nginx, Varnish, Apache and Memcache to optimizes the server speed. We have integrated a great number of apps like WordPress, Magento, PrestaShop, etc. Our users can install servers on Amazon or DO in one click with any of these apps.

    Recently, we have seen a discussion on different forums and communities about the issue of Varnish Cache with WooCommerce. I’m super excited to inform you that our amazing dev team have finally solved this issue. We have added WooCommerce as an app at our platform. Users can now install Varnish compatible WooCommerce in one-click. It will not take much time to have the WooCommerce store on Amazon or DO. We are all in press. This is a big news from Cloudways. You can play with it from here here and I’m sure you would love to know more. I’m all available on different social channels for any query. 🙂

    1. Hi Waseem – while your comment is a bit of a hard pitch for Cloudways and a little bit spammy I’ll allow it as I’m curious about Cloudways. Your platform intrigues me. You didn’t do very well in this comparison in November

      I’m curious as to what benchmarks you’ve conducted in terms of WooCommerce performance on your platform. Is there any indication of how well your platform performs in terms of customer sessions and number of transactions per second?

      I really want someone to put together a world class hosting solution for WooCommerce that customers can setup on their own DO/Linode/AWS account so I’m willing you to do this well 🙂

      1. Well thank you very much for the approval. The comment was neither a hard pitch nor a spam and more of the excitement to have the best team with us who take challenges faced by the community and solves the issues. You or anyone can reach any of our representative and we are always there to kill the curiosity. 😉

        We invited Kevin to test out our platform and compare performance against others. The reason our results weren’t as impressive was because Kevin launched the smallest DO server and AWS server (i.e. t2.micro), we aren’t complaining but our recommendations weren’t heard and let him do the tests.

        Reason of making Varnish Cache compatible with each WooCommerce installation is to make sure that the customer sessions, number of transactions and each step goes with a rocket speed. You can check our load performance test results on our blog post. We launched WooCommerce with and without Varnish Cache. Results were stupendous. Varnish boosted the speed of WooCommerce store more than 100%. We have the same mindset as you. We have build the best platform for our customers to launch WooCommerce at AWS/DO in one-click. We have in our iterations to add more server providers very soon.

        I invite you to test Cloudways platform yourself. Our team would love to know your feedback. Lets put our efforts together to give the best to the community. 🙂
