Many merchants are trying to compare Magento 1 vs. Magento 2. While Magento 2 is still in it’s infancy, and many developers are eagerly awaiting the stabilization of the platform, there are many new features and enhancements that merchants will be able to leverage. As of the writing of this article, there are over 1,400 issues, such as reported bugs, listed in official Magento 2 github page. There are also approximately 240 Magento Extensions available, with over 300 reported by the Magento team as coming soon. The extensions that are available have had minimal usage compared to many Magento 1 extensions, and while the Magento team has been screening these, it wouldn’t be surprising to find shortcomings in some of these Magento 2 Extensions, given more strenuous real world use. As of today the Magento 2 environment is therefore out of reach of most merchants who can’t risk running into so many bugs, and who want access to more pre-built extensions rather than take on the expense of custom building extensions.

eCommerce Self-Hosting Gives Retailers Total Control Over Their Store

Guest Post from our partner, Nexcess.

Despite the proliferation of third-party eCommerce platforms, self-hosting is still the best option for small and medium eCommerce retailers.

New eCommerce retailers have two basic options for selling products. They can choose a third-party eCommerce platform — the usual options are marketplaces associated with established eCommerce retailers. Amazon or eBay are typical examples. Alternatively, they can choose to self-host — use an open source or paid-for eCommerce application like Magento, with the infrastructure and networking handled by a hosting company, but with much of the application management left to the retailer.
