Cloudways: How did you decide to use Magento for your ecommerce store? What factors influenced your decision, and what other platforms did you consider before choosing Magento?
Yogita Khasturi: The decision to choose Magento was driven by the suggestions of ecommerce development agency Webiators and its open-source features that allow customization without any limitations. Magento’s flexibility, scalability, and many extensions made it stand out from the competition. We looked at several other solutions, including WooCommerce and Shopify, before deciding that Magento best fits our vision.

Yogita Khasturi: Before moving to Cloudways, we faced several problems like slow website speed, downtime, and security. These problems directly impacted the user experience and resulted in a loss in business.
Customer interest was lost due to lengthy load times (TTFB) and broken confidence during outages. The safety of sensitive client information was questioned due to security flaws. Solving these problems was essential to maintaining our company’s expansion.
