It’s not only Apple that had new things in store. At Cloudways, we have been busy too.
After launching our PHP 7 stack formulation, we have another addition for you.
In the final weeks of 2015, the ecommerce world witnessed an evolution. We saw a new and transformed version of the Magento Platform, that is Magento 2. After years of trial and testing, Magento Inc. released the final iteration of Magento 2, a whole new way of doing ecommerce. Since that day, we have been doing our tests too on Magento 2 hosting.
While testing, we did some cool experiments and wanted to ensure that nothing breaks down as this version was not an ordinary update. It was an overhaul.
That’s why we had to find the best way to bring all the best features of Magento 2 hosting on Cloudways Managed Magento Hosting Platform.
What’s new in Magento 2?
Over the years, the web has changed. A decade ago, opening a shop meant you would be serving only desktop users. The screen will be 13 inches or more. But, times have changed in the past few years. Mobile commerce has really picked up and this required for a more flexible solution.
While Magento 1 is responsive, it was not perfect. This is where Magento 2 comes into play. It’s a purpose-built ecommerce development solution based on the HTML5 and CSS3.
This version comes with a built-in responsive theme named Luma — which looks fantastic in itself. For many, it can become their first-ever theme without many customizations.
Plus, there is a revamped backend. Gone are the days you were left scratching your head when you wanted to do something in your shop. The backend of Magento 2.0 is amazingly comfortable. You can get different types of the report from it quickly.
Product and tax management is easy too. Some of the things that were done by extension in Magento 1 come integrated with Magento 2.
The best thing about Magento 2 is its embedded cache mechanism. This means stores on Magento 2 are performance optimized. However, on Cloudways, we have ensured Magento 2 runs blazingly fast.
Magento 2.3 Rolled Out
