I am looking for hosting advice for Opencart. What hosting site would you recommend for the new version of opencart?
Which hosting solution would you rate better- hostgator or bluehost?
Host Gator or In Motion Hosting. You can't go wrong with either. Right now I think In Motion is doing 6 months free hosting for shared. If your budget allows it I would recommend using a VPS no matter where you go. Here is an article worth looking at:
I have been using Cloudways opencart hosting. Resong behind buying their hosting is they have managed platform where, I manage my store easily, its secure, daily backup, free SSL, and migration is much easier. I will recommend you to go with Cloudways Opencart hosting and try their free 3 days trial.
