In this blog post, I’ll review some of the more important features of WooCart. WooCart is a new hosting provider that fully specializes for WooCommerce. Compared to WP Engine, Flywheel, or SiteGround, WooCart doesn’t offer WordPress hosting at all. It’s a focused package for WooCommerce store owners.
Core difference between managed WooCommerce hosting and other hosting is convenience. In managed hosting everything is bundled up together. You don’t have to worry about any technical issues.
In non-managed hosting you have to manage cPanel, install WordPress, install WooCommerce then check the resource usage and if there is any issue you have to contact customer support, which is most of the time occupied with lots of things, have a scattered focus, and no specialized knowledge.
Whereas in WooCommerce managed hosting, the team’s focus is only on WooCommerce. That gives you an idea of why they can offer better service. WooCart allows you to spend your valuable time on marketing your store and not fixing technical issues.
What makes WooCart different from other hosts
Extremely Fast Hosting
WooCart hosts your stores on Google Cloud, and uses CDN for your images completely out-of-box. Not only that, it also automatically smushes images, and serves the best possible format to your visitor. This increases the quality of images while decreasing the load time.
One of the cool features of WooCart is Plugin Metrics. Plugin Metrics shows you if there are any slow-loading plugins that are slowing down your store. No more disabling of plugins and testing which one is slowing down your store. Just open the page and see which plugin needs to be disabled or changed!
WooCart offers a no-hack guarantee, which shows the level of confidence they have in their product. They guarantee if anything happens to your store, they will restore it to the previous version and clean up the mess immediately.
Store Wizard helps you create a store a lot quicker than you’re used to. Taxes and local standards (timezone, currency, etc.) are predefined for 57 countries. The Wizard can also create a turnkey store with design and demo products. This makes creating a new store amazingly fast.
For developers, and easier troubleshooting, there’s WP-CLI, error and traffic logs, and server metrics.
They also offer free SSL with all stores, that comes automatically configured.
For their users they offer a complete transfer from previous hosting provider to WooCart. Which includes DNS hosting, and emails.
Daily backs with all packages so you don’t have to worry about losing your data.
