Launching a website is no longer the challenging process it used to be back in the day with the advent of cloud web hosting. Millions of websites use cloud technology these days, including plenty of ecommerce online shopping stores looking to grow and become more profitable.

What’s more, transforming your WordPress websites into ecommerce stores takes nothing more than a magical plugin called WooCommerce. Our blog discusses the easy steps to host WooCommerce on AWS, its setup prerequisites, and FAQs revolving around its usage.

Hosting WooCommerce on AWS can be challenging for many users, as it includes the complexities of HTML, CSS, Javascript, and more. Thankfully, these hurdles are simplified by the tech savior WordPress; the Content Management System (CMS) software handles the coding complexities itself.

You just have to focus on your website’s content, appearance, and management through a user-friendly admin console and let WordPress face the coding phantoms itself.

WooCommerce Hosting on AWS – Setup Prerequisites

Setting up a WooCommerce store is key to transforming your dreams into the reality of selling your products and services to people worldwide.

As you might have already guessed, the process starts with domain registration. Choose an attractive domain name that reflects your business idea. Once you get registered to DNS, you can use WordPress to design your website.

New to website designing, but don’t want to spend too much on external resources? We also have a solution for that: WordPress page builders. These nifty tools let the non-tech-savvy users build their pages themselves via easy drag and drop options.

Once you are done with the formalities, it’s time to magically transform your site into an ecommerce store via WooCommerce.

Now you need a reliable provider to launch your own WordPress website based on WooCommerce. Some of the reliable names in the cloud market are DigitalOcean, Vultr, Google Cloud, and Amazon Cloud. In this blog, we have purely focused on installing WooCommerce on Amazon Cloud hosting.
