Hi Matt, Dave, All

I’m in the process of setting up my first Magento/M2e Pro setup for myself however I’m about to jump in the deep end and also migrate my sister-in-laws business onto Magento/M2e Pro. I am looking at Simple Servers since you recommend them so highly, however I notice they do 2 different shared hosting options one is marketed as Magento Hosting the other M2e Pro Hosting. There is only about £5 per month difference against all the levels but wanted an independent view on if this is worth it or should I stick to standard Magento hosting with them?

Many Thanks

Hi Richard,

Absolutely, if you are in the UK or Europe Simple servers are the way forward. The difference between the Magento and the M2E Pro is that they will install M2E for you and offer some level of assistance (of which im not 100% on)

Or the standard Magento one which is the one we recommend in the video’s as we show you how we would set up and install M2E Pro our way…and it’s cheaper :)

Hope that helps
