Hostgator osCommerce Hosting

At hostgator hosting a shopping cart is as simple as 1-2-3.  And to show you just how simple it really is I decided to do a hostgator review on the osCommerce installation we did via fantastico.  As some of you may already know osCommerce is a free ecommerce script to use for a shopping cart.  Installation of osCommerce usually isn't for the faint at heart.  However, due to cPanel and fantastico you can have it running in a matter of minutes.

Directions to install via fantastico -

  1. Log on to your hostgator hosting cPanel
  2. Click on the Fantastico De Luxe icon
  3. Under E-Commerce choose os Commerce
  4. Then you will click on the new installation link
  5. Fantastico will ask you which domain you would like to install osCommerce on and a few simple questions such as shop name, owner name, etc, etc.
  6. Click Install OS Commerce

Sorry I just noticed it's as simple as 6 steps not the 1-2-3  but that is not bad to get your hostgator oscommerce website running.

Now one thing is for sure if you want to build customer confidence you will want to tweak the default templates of oscommerce to make it your own style and look.  There are many forums and discussions on the web about tweaking your templates and shouldn't be too hard a task.

And another thing is for sure getting your ecommerce business couldn't possibly be any easier with hostgator hosting.  I really hope you enjoyed this hostgator review.
