Choosing Magento hosting for your Magento store should not be approached lightly. As a developer and a Magento partner, we’re cautious to the extreme when it comes to these recommendations. We have chosen to be an industry partner with ZeroLag because of our positive experience working with them. As a developer, we require access and information on behalf of our clients. This is a strength with ZeroLag that can’t be overemphasized. Bottom line: Problems, when they happen, can be resolved more quickly and securely.

Although ZeroLag is a custom hosting solution – offering 24/7 support and Magento-dedicated configurations – they have positioned their pricing on the “value” side of the spectrum, often charging less than comparable hosting vendors.

Hosting Built for Magento

For merchants requiring dedicated Magento servers, ZeroLag has tiered their offering with two different LAMP stacks built specifically to provide maximum page-load speed, indexing, and security for Magento. Both LAMP versions include Debian Linux, Apache, Percona MySQL, and Alternative PHP Cache (APC). Memcached can be added to this service for faster caching and resolution of PHP instructions, along with web nodes to share cache and PHP sessions in muti-server configurations.

Other advanced services available through ZeroLag include Varnish, Solr, Magento Payment Bridge, CDN, or PageSpeed (mod_pagespeed) for Apache.

All ZeroLag Magento server configurations include:

  • RAID Storage Systems
  • Around the clock support
  • Daily Backup
  • Server status monitored every five minutes
  • Munin resource monitoring tool

ZeroLag’s Tier 4 data center is SSAE 16-certified, with security guards on premises at all times, biometric access, N+1 redundancy and three discrete ISP connections on 10 Gb backbones.
