PrestaShop FAQs

  • What is PrestaShop hosting?

    PrestaShop hosting is a type of service that is optimized to meet all of the requirements of ecommerce websites. Think of things like consistently fast performance, high security, and resource scalability. All those are a must if you are on a mission to grow your online store to its fullest potential. On top of that, you have features such as developer friendly environment, and GIT & SSH access are great additions for experienced users and are all included with the ScalaHosting VPS plans.

  • What are the benefits of PrestaShop hosting on a Cloud VPS?

    PrestaShop hosting plans are optimized for the best possible performance, security, and scalability for online stores. As shared hosting proves insufficient for growing ecommerce websites, ScalaHosting highly recommends a cloud VPS environment.

    Consistent Performance

    The VPS “lives” in the cloud and delivers consistent performance due to the dedicated and guaranteed CPU power, RAM, and storage.

    High Security

    Your PrestaShop site runs in a secure, dedicated, and isolated cloud hosting environment, giving you full control over customizations.


    Additional CPU cores, RAM, and storage space are one click away. Never again lose visitors because your server is low on resources.

    Learn more in the video below which shows the difference between VPS hosting and shared hosting.

  • How do I choose the best PrestaShop hosting provider?

    While there is no single right answer ti the question “who is the best PrestaShop hosting provider?”, there are some good indications you should look for.

    For starters, make sure the host offers an environment that is optimized for ecommerce sites. Online stores often require more system resources than standard websites, so you could do with a scalable plan that will allow you to add CPU/RAM on the go. You have to ensure your online business is safe enough from malware and web attacks. Be it with some self-developed solution (like ScalaHosting’s SShield) or a set of security measures (like SSL certificates) - don’t just leave your ecommerce site out in the open. Finally, any reliable PrestaShop host should be ready to offer a well-trained team of experts that are always available for assistance, even if you have some technical expertise with the CMS.

  • How to choose the right PreshaShop web hosting plan?

    If you already have an ecommerce store with another hosting provider, you can use it’s current statistics and resource usage as a base of what to look for when switching. As a rule of thumb, always make sure to have more than what you need, both in terms of server resources and security features.

    If you are starting from scratch with the PrestaShop CMS, the first two plans should be sufficient enough to get your online store going. You can adjust your CPU/RAM on the go as your project grows.

  • Do you offer AWS PrestaShop hosting?

    You may select one of the AWS data centers to power your PrestaShop hosting solution. ScalaHosting partners with AWS and allows customers to choose between multiple data center locations in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

  • Can I upgrade my PrestaShop VPS?

    Your PrestaShop hosting is cloud-native and features true scalability. You can add more CPU cores, RAM, or storage space with a single click. The extra resources are instantly available.

  • Can I transfer my PrestaShop online store to ScalaHosting?

    Absolutely! The first step is to sign up for the PrestaShop hosting plan that best suits your needs and then open a ticket with technical support to request the data migration. We only need the login details to your old server and the exact time when you want us to start the process. We will transfer your PrestaShop store for free, without downtime, and we will also verify the website loads correctly on the new server.

  • Will my online store be down during the migration?

    There is no downtime during the migration. Your website will continue to function normally during and after the transfer is completed. Once our support team ensures your PrestaShop site functions correctly on our server - they will notify you to point the domain name to Scala.

  • How long will it take to migrate my PrestaShop site to ScalaHosting?
