Say Hello to Magento 2 Hosting

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 Magento 2. After years of trial and testing, Magento Inc. finally released the final iteration of Magento 2.0, a whole new way of doing ecommerce.

Since that day, we have been doing our tests too. While testing, we did some cool experiments. We wanted to ensure that nothing breaks as this version was not an ordinary update. It was an overhaul.

This is why we had to find the best way to bring all the best features of Magento 2.0 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 will 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 malleable 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 Luna—which looks awesome in itself. For many, it can become their first-ever theme without much customizations.

Plus, there is a revamped backend. Gone are the days you were left scratching your head when you wanted to do something on your shop. The backend of Magento 2.0 is amazingly easy. You can get different types of report from it easily.

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.

One-Click Magento 2 Install on Cloudways

Cloudways now offers 1-click installation for Magento 2. The installation is powered by a very high-performance stack that is further supported by cache technologies including Varnish and Redis.

    Hello Ashan,
    You mentioned PHP 7. Does Magento 2 installs with PHP 7 on Cloudways? What actually the whole sw stack in this installaton?

    • Hi Vlad,

      By default Magento 2 installs with PHP 5.6.

      You can change the version of PHP to PHP 7 anytime in “Settings and Packages”. The Cloudways stack a.k.a ThunderStack consists of Nginx, Varnish, Apache, Memcached, MySQL, PHP 5.6

      With optional Redis cache, MariaDB and PHP 7
