WooCommerce is a fast growing eCommerce platform for store owners. It sits on top of WordPress and is an “easy to use platform” that they can get started with a minimum investment. However, as their stores grow, they are challenged by a lack of staff and expertise to handle the increasing need for design, development and devops.
Scalable Hosting Platform
Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce Hosting offering is their answer to common pain points for SMB store owners. The company has built a platform that can auto-scale. This elastic and scalable platform would give store owners all the hosting resources they need, “helping stores stay fast, without requiring architecture or server changes.”
“Our Managed WooCommerce Hosting product is more than just a simple one-click plugin installation,” said Chris Lema, VP of Products and Innovation, Liquid Web. “We’ve built a real offering. We’re combining the power of WooCommerce with the industry-leading managed hosting expertise of Liquid Web, allowing store owners to focus on growing their business and leaving the hosting headaches to us.”
“Our customer isn’t buying hosting or a plugin,” added Mr. Lema. “They’re not buying technology. They just expect it all to work. This is why we’re in the ‘managed’ business. We’re innovating and delivering value in a crowded market with a clear sense of the features that make a difference to our SMB stores owners and the designers, developers and agencies who serve them.”
With over 32,000 customers spanning 150 countries, Liquid Web provides managed hosting and cloud services to content providers, commerce platform providers, SMB entrepreneurs and the designers, developers and digital agencies who create for them.
“With the addition of Managed WooCommerce Hosting to our product portfolio, we further our mission to empower web dependent professions all over the world to create content and commerce more easily, without worry and knowing they have a real person to turn to when they need help,” said Jim Geiger, CEO of Liquid Web. “We are very excited about the launch of this innovative product, reaffirming our commitment to simplifying how our SMB customers experience managed hosting and cloud services and having an important role in powering their business potential.”
