Learn use cases for Magento, including migrating from another platform, customization, and scaling. Magento is an open-source e-commerce platform which is widely used and is supported by a thriving ecosystem of developers and solutions.
Scenario 1: Migrating From Paid E-Commerce Hosting
In this scenario, the user has been hosting a successful e-commerce business on a subscription-based e-commerce platform. The user is tired of paying a monthly fee just for the e-commerce platform, and wants to have more control over the server on which the website is hosted.
The solution for this scenario is to migrate to a 1&1 Cloud Server, and install Magento. Magento is an open-source e-commerce solution which is free to install and use, regardless of the number of sales or products. The 1&1 Cloud Server platform offers the freedom to manage the server, which can be used to expand services, install custom solutions, integrate other server solutions, and more.
Scenario 2: Customization
In this scenario, the user started with a WordPress website with an e-commerce plug-in. The user's site has grown, their customer base has expanded, and they are ready to expand to a more robust solution which offers a greater degree of customization.
Using Magento on a 1&1 Cloud Server is a good fit for this user. Magento offers an unparalleled degree of customization, including the ability to up-sell and cross-sell products, integrate analytics tools, offer discount codes, create advanced filters, set up localization, and much more.
Scenario 3: Scaling Up
The user in this scenario has an e-commerce site which they plan to greatly expand over the upcoming months. The user's expansion plans include the ability to set up load-balancing and multi-tenant hosting, in addition to adding thousands of new products and many other features.
Magento and the 1&1 Cloud Server platform are the clear choice for this user. There are many possibilities for combining server and networking architecture to create a fault-tolerant, high-availability Magento installation that will be able to handle the highest traffic loads. Additionally, Magento can support a very large number of products, and the Magento developer ecosystem means that the user will be able to hire a developer to create custom solutions to fit their needs.
