For the e-commerce community, this means that you can host an online shopping cart such as a Miva Merchant store and pay only for the hard disk space and memory that you use or the number of websites you have. Currently in the Miva Hosting world, you purchase a powerful hosting package and whether you use all the resources or just a small amount, you still pay for the full package. The same applies for Basic Web Hosting services such as the ones provided by WebNet Hosting.

Furthermore, with the Cloud Computing format there is never a need to store or run any programs off your own hard drive. This means that you will be able to access your site, databases and control panel from any device (be it mobile phone or laptop) anywhere in the world.

WebNet Hosting provides reliable Miva Hosting services as well as Basic Web Hosting services. They also specialize in Miva Merchant 5.5 customization and design.
