Hi, I am looking at setting up an opencart web store and researching the best hosting option. I googled around but couldn't really find an answer to RAM and processor requirments for opencart. I am looking at cloudways for hosting and I jumped onto an online chat with someone there. I'm not convinced they knew what they were talking about though and was looking for some additional verification if possible. He said that I would need their $34/m plan (2GB RAM, 2 Core processor, 40GB Storage, 3TB bandwidth). It sounds a bit excessive to me though as we are only expecting 2000-3000 visits a week and probably 1-2 GB of storage would be plenty.

Is anybody using opencart on Cloudways and do you think I could get away with a cheaper plan?

Cheers!

2000-3000 visits a week
up to 10-12 000 products
~ 2GB storage (depends on your product images and image optimization)
fits to the most shared hosting basic plans.
I would recommend http://coolicehost.com/ because of their good servers and the price is EUR2.98/m
just pick your location - they have servers in Europe and North America

Thanks Agatha, so no need to go the cloud hosing route? It would be best if the servers were in Australia as most of the traffic will be from Australia. I will do some more research, so far it seems Aussie servers start at about $30/m.

Cloud servers should only be a main priority for storage environment. If storage or project publication to the public is not a priority for you, then using the cloud would not be a necessity for your objectives. Opencart does not require to use the clouds force-based as it can be ran as a stand-alone platform still at this day.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming.
