Magento is one of the world's most popular eCommerce platforms and is often chosen over other platforms because of its scalability, it offers an Enterprise version for larger merchants, and that it is possible to install it on any server. However, what many people don’t think of is that Magento with all its power and robustness needs a bit of configuration and tweaking before it can make their eCommerce dreams come true. Don’t get disappointed when your Magento store doesn’t perform great “out of the box” - it’s not meant to! To get your Magento store working seamlessly, you have a few things to get right: hosting, cashing system configuration and storing static content, code efficiency as well as careful consideration of where to keep your catalogue content.
