Hosting an e-commerce site requires additional considerations than running other business websites. Of these factors, security is the most important. An e-commerce site manages private consumer information; name, address, phone number and most crucial of all, credit card number. If any of that information were to be compromised, the effects to the business (and the customer) could be devastating. Due to the complexity and difficulty of maintaining proper website security, many businesses are unable to manage it themselves. The companies that do manage their own website security have specially trained experts dedicated solely to that task. Therefore, many businesses will turn to a web hosting provider. Where possible, look for web hosting providers that have partnered with e-commerce software vendors - they're more likely to provide encryption and other e-commerce security measures.
