Why Magento Stores Should Run on Cloudways

Magento Cloudways

The Magento ecommerce software has become synonymous with online stores. It has captured a major chunk of the online store development market. With its host of features, convenient development, and thriving community, Magento is a great choice for your online business needs.

The choice of hosting also has a rather significant effect on your bottom line.

Not only that, you have to hire technical staff to manage the server. This creates red tape in the running of your store. What if there was a way to not have to deal with a command line interface to accomplish a simple server related task and yet keep the headcount low?

The answer is cloud hosting, specifically, managed cloud hosting. Among the reputed managed hosting platforms, Cloudways stands out because of its credibility and the increasing number of satisfied customers. Here, we’ll take a look at the reasons why hosting a Magento store on Cloudways is a great business strategy. Whether you’re looking to host Magento 1, or Magento 2, both versions work flawlessly on Cloudways.

Let’s get down to it. Continue Reading

To improve search engine indexation and user navigation on a Magento web store, ecommerce merchants should think about using HTML and XML sitemaps tools, since default Magento platform does not provide sufficient functionality for this. That шы why another Magento extension we are going to describe today is MageWorx Sitemap Suite.

The MageWorx Sitemap Suite Magento 2 toolkit provides merchants with everything they need to create advanced fully-optimised HTML and XML sitemaps. The module is designed to improve user experience by creating a snapshot of all your website links in the form of a Magento 2 HTML sitemap.

Since XML sitemap includes files with all URLs on your web store that need to be indexed in search engines, Google will faster identify important information about relevant pages and their updates. Thus, with the extension, you significantly improve search engine indexation and your website’s SEO in the long term. Moreover, the MageWorx sitemap module is fully compliant with all Google requirements.
