What are the Advantages of PrestaShop

PrestaShop is a software platform that creates and installs online stores. It is based on PHP script language and requires a MySQL database. As an open source project, the system is constantly developed further and supplied with updates and extensions by the community. PrestaShop was designed to sell directly to consumers and is focused on appealing design and user-friendliness, as well as comprehensive and helpful back-end functions.

Easy Installation

Installing and setting up content management systems without any previous experience is not always simple. As one of many Click & Build apps by 1&1, PrestaShop is installed completely in just a few easy steps. In contrast to the manual installation, you will not lose any of the various configuration options. The free mode leaves updating the application and installing the plug-ins up to you, including those that are not provided directly by 1&1.

Upgrade the great features with extensions

Once the download of PrestaShop is complete and the system has been installed, a multitude of functions are available to you. You can choose from more than 1,200 themes and 5,000 extensions to design and set up your store exactly how you want it. In addition, PrestaShop allows you to manage multiple stores using only one system. Search engine optimization and Meta tags help achieve high visibility in Google and other search engines. Even with this comprehensive functionality, the cache manager module ensures the high performance and short loading time of your store.

PrestaShop Hosting

  • What are the tariff options for downloading PrestaShop?

    PrestaShop is available in all of our web hosting packages, although the starter package is less suitable for the store platform as it only allows for the use of one 1&1 Click & Build application. This limitation does not apply to the unlimited offers, like the Unlimited Pro package, which guarantees the full hardware power of 2 GB RAM and any number of databases. Even during high usage, this option ensures your online store will run smoothly, constantly perform well and have short loading times.
  • Which version of PrestaShop is available from 1&1?

    If you have decided to use PrestaShop as a Click & Build app from 1&1, you will always receive the current version—installed and configured to match your online store. With 1&1 you will always be up to date. Additionally, your system is backed up daily so that in the event of a data crash, you can easily restore a current version. PrestaShop also offers you the option to download older versions or a developer version. Should you encounter any problems, the 1&1 technical support team is happy to assist you around-the-clock.
  • How does PrestaShop differ from Magento?

    PrestaShop and Magento are both open source eCommerce programs that allow you to set up a professional online store. Both allow you to customize your store to match your image with additional features and add-ons; however, PrestaShop provides over 25,000 plugins compared to Magento's 1,500. Compared to Magento, PrestaShop aims to make installing and setting up your online store quick and easy and makes customizing your shopping cart a breeze. While Magento requires some programming knowledge, PrestaShop can be used by beginners and experienced programmers alike. This makes PrestaShop a great choice for small to medium business, as it can be run by anyone and the hiring of a programmer is not required. Day to day, PrestaShop is easier to handle and more affordable than Magento.
  • Is there a PrestaShop demo?

    Your online store is the face of your online business, so choosing the right software is vital. Of course, before you commit to something so important, you want to know exactly what you are committing to. That is why there is an easily accessible PrestaShop demo version available online. This demo will give you an idea of how PrestaShop works, what it will look like once your own online store is live online, and give you some inspiration for how to design it. The demo version can be viewed on desktops, tablets and mobile phones to give you an idea of how PrestaShop looks and adapts to a variety of different devices. Not only will you be able to see what your customers see when they access your online store, you can also explore the behind-the-scenes area and view the PrestaShop sellers dashboard, which provides you with all the information about sales, shipping and orders you need to run a successful online store.
