Best WooCommerce Hosting

We have two hosting companies we’ve worked with extensively and recommend to host your WooCommerce website: Pagely and SiteGround. They both have excellent support teams with a focus on security and performance, and they do a great job of working with eCommerce sites.

Liquid web woocommerce hosting
For larger WooCommerce stores, you can’t beat Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce Hosting offering. You get excellent security, scalability, and support, along with tons of bundled services, including Jilt (built by our team). Liquid Web’s entire infrastructure is designed to keep your site super-performant and to help sell more. You can learn more here.
siteground
If you’re launching a new site, SiteGround is a great choice. We’ve used SiteGround for small sites and have not been disappointed with their services — they offer the best shared hosting for sites under 100,000 visits per month (we like the GoGeek plan for great features & performance). You can sign up here to get 50-60% off of your hosting services.

If you need to scale up a very large eCommerce site, moving to Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce hosting is a great choice with all of the essential tools you need for a growing store. When you’re just getting started, SiteGround’s GoGeek plan or cloud hosting also work very well for WooCommerce hosting.


Customizations

We work on some custom plugin development, but we don’t have availability for all requests. In these cases, we recommend rtCamp, Wisdm Labs, or Codeable.

rtCamp has extensive experience with WooCommerce core and plugins from the SkyVerge team. They offer a full range of services for enterprise clients looking for a long-term technical partner.

rtCamp

Wisdm Labs has extensive experience with WooCommerce customizations, including those involving SkyVerge plugins, and takes projects ranging from small customizations to frontend builds.

Codeable provides a marketplace where you can accept bids from dozens of experienced WooCommerce developers. Get 5% off on your first project with Codeable by clicking the banner below:


eCommerce Learning

sellwithwp
We sponsor a site that covers news, tips, and tricks related to all things WordPress eCommerce that we highly recommend you visit! Let us know what you think of SellwithWP.com – we all contribute articles there, and there are some great tips and reviews (if we do say so ourselves 😉 ).

Upsell is where leaders in eCommerce gather share their stories, learn from each other, and inspire entrepreneurs around the world. Edited by our team, Upsell focuses on eCommerce trends, research, and merchant stories.
Jilt blog
Our team writes frequently on the Jilt blog about marketing and eCommerce optimizations. If you’re interested to learn more about email, marketing, and optimizations, check out our articles on Jilt.blog.
chrislema
Chris Lema frequently writes about eCommerce and membership solutions, but also writes general business articles about pricing and marketing. His site is great for overall business leadership learning.

Speaking of learning and stories, got one of your own? Shoot Josh an email to tell us about you and your store’s journey. 🙂


WordPress Plugins

We have a few plugins we really like at SkyVerge (one of them is, of course, WooCommerce). However, there are a lot of other useful plugins out there.

affiliate-wp
AffiliateWP is our favorite plugin for creating an eCommerce affiliate referral network for your store. It’s well-built, delivers high performance, is easy to use, and is backed by excellent developers.
SkyVerge Recommends Gravity Forms
We love Gravity Forms for building contact forms, quizzes, surveys, and more — it’s installed on every one of our sites. It also integrates with MailChimp, can be used as a registration form, and can even be used for payments.
wpmigratedbpro
WP Migrate DB Pro is one of the most useful plugins out there for developers. You can use it to assist with migrating your site, or to create a restore point before updating plugins or themes – get 20% off by clicking here.

You can also check out our free plugins here.


WooCommerce Themes

Our favorite WooCommerce theme is Storefront from the WooCommerce team. Not only is it free, but it has several useful extensions and child themes. It’s an excellent starting point to build a custom theme, or the extensions can help anyone customize the appearance themselves. It also features tight-integration with WooCommerce to show your products off while still remaining lightweight with a super-lean codebase.
storefront

If you’re looking for other premium themes, here are some of our favorite authors.


We’ve always had great success using themes from Array Themes. They’re easy to customize, exceptionally well-built, and well-supported. There are great options for WooCommerce and a huge selection of content-focused themes for sites geared towards content-based memberships.
codestag
We also recommend themes from Codestag on ThemeForest, which are well designed and coded. They won an award for the best new WooCommerce theme on ThemeForest with the Crux Theme. Their site also has themes they sell directly.
astoundify
While they don’t exclusively make WooCommerce themes, Astoundify is a top-notch theme developer, and their Listify theme is excellent for WooCommerce shops, especially those using WP Job Manager for listings.

Learning WordPress Development

wpsessions-offer
We give out a lot of tips and advice at SkyVerge. However, if you want to become a better developer, we highly recommend the VIP Membership from WPSessions, which is $50 off for a limited time. Their standard presentations always provide some valuable information and tips for WordPress development, but the VIP membership is geared towards helping WordPress developers improve and earn more by learning from WordPress experts.
