Supercharge Your Magento Store with LiteMage Cache

LiteMage Cache Banner

We are happy to announce that we now fully support LiteMage Cache, the world’s fastest Magento Full Page Cache for Magento across our Web Hosting plans and Managed Cloud Servers.

LiteMage Cache uses the advanced Edge Side Includes (ESI) of the latest LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise 5.0 to punch holes in pages where information changes from visitor to visitor. The remaining content is saved to cache. When the next person visits the same page, the cached content is served quickly, with only the holes needing to be filled in with data for that visitor. LiteMage Cache also caches per-user data in private caches, so entire pages, even those with multiple holes, can be assembled completely from cache.

24×7 Phone Support (BETA)

During the earlier years of Aspiration Hosting, the only option we offer to obtain Technical Support is by our 24×7 Helpdesk (and Emails which are piped into our Helpdesk). We have also added 24×7 Live Chat Support in the past few years.

Many of our clients have been requesting that we offer Phone Support but it is something that we hesitated due to a few reasons:-
– We were a small team with limited resources
– We used to only hire Level III grade Senior Technical Engineers
– Technical Support through the phone is more difficult to manage and document

We are happy to say that all of the above issues have been resolved:-
– As we grow bigger, this allows us to increase our team size
– We recently hired and trained a team of Level I & II grade Junior Technicians to provide phone support
– We will only offer basic Technical Support through phone and anything else will still go through our 24×7 Helpdesk

As such, we are now ready to offer 24×7 Technical Support over the phone! As this is still very new for us, we will launch our Phone Support program in BETA for now. Continue reading

Speeding up Magento with a Page Cache

Magento Hosting

Store speed is very important for both conversions and search engine optimization. Amazon estimates that every 100ms in store slowness results in a 1% drop in profits. Even worse than this, Google ranks sites in its search engine results according to speed. The slower a store the fewer rankings it will have which means less opportunity to generate revenue and convert visitors to buyers.

For this reason the hosting plans at Aspiration Hosting are optimized for blazing fast speed. Unfortunately, due to the architect of Magento, speed is not always enough. That is why we have partnered with Extendware, a leading provider of enterprise Magento extensions, in order to provide a Free Magento Full Page Cache to users of our select hosting plans.
