Magento is open-source software that can be used by anyone having the skills to develop a new module or extension. Magento is a community of over 300,000 developers with an active forum of about thousands of contributors. It is free and yet useful with improved quality and functionalities. Magento has advanced security that is ideal for eCommerce.
Security is the major concern for all types of websites, but to run an online store having a continuous flow of sensitive financial and personal information from customers, the security is considered as a high level of necessity.
As a Magento owner you get the authority to choose person who can update the site. Such kind of security permission helps you to limit the risk of angry employee who can perform the malicious activities on your website.
E-commerce site consists of wide range of products and categories, and thus security with management is the biggest concern. To simplify all such work, I suggest one should use Magento site to build online store. To host a Magento site, MilesWeb is considered as a valid option.
Their Magento optimised hosting plan compromises of LiteSpeed Web Server + LiteMage Cache, which is considered as a combo that delivers high performance and works sturdily even during high traffic seasons.
Fully Managed Magento Hosting Plans:
Benefits of LiteSpeed + LiteMage are:
1) Magento Specific caching –
LiteMage works on ESI technology i.e. “punching holes” on pages carrying visitor’s information, where the information is processed as Dynamic. So, that when the next visitor comes on the website, “holes get filled” with the visitor’s information.
2) Static + Dynamic caching –
Magento caching has multiple options like PHP opcode, NGiNX, and Varnish but, from all these LiteMage shows the superior result in terms of Magento 1 and Magento 2 speed test. Also, all other caching platforms fail as compared to the usability features of LiteMage.
3) Low CPU and Memory Needs –
LiteMage uses minimum server resources as it uses the ESI mechanism. It consumes less RAM and CPU as compared to Varnish and other PHP caching techniques.
4) Quick Page Loads –
LiteMage combines all the received responses and assembles the full page content that reduces page load time. It is also responsible to eliminate the chance of creating individual requests for retrieving each block separately which in return improves the Magento site speed.
5) Native Site Crawling –
After installing LiteMage the caching process starts immediately, and all your Magento web pages get crawled automatically. This adds the warming up of caches as a result of which every visitor coming to the page gets optimum load speed.
6) Native SSL Support –
The LiteMage native SSL support makes sure that the user authentication is verified with encrypted session tokens that avoid possible hacking attempts.
7) DDoS protection –
LiteSpeed has a built-in anti-DDoS feature that can defend your site from common HTTP attacks.
8) Multiple View and Ajax Support –
LiteMage can support multi-store, multi-currency and multi-user groups along with Support for extensions using Ajax-based cart.

Many people use other like VPS hosting India types for their eCommerce websites because they are not aware of the use and benefits of the Magento site. So, you can gain information about it from your developer or friends, and decide whether or not Magento is needed. I personally recommend using the Magento site for any type of eCommerce store.
