A huge thank you to Nexcess

Magento 2 Explained was made possible by the support of Nexcess, who specialize in hosting Magento sites.

Since 2000, Nexcess has developed an outstanding team and excellent technology. If you’re a Magento operator bent on maximizing revenue, then you’ll benefit from their famous 13X performance boost.

While writing this book, we tested Magento on several different hosting companies, and it was very sluggish. We moved to Nexcess and Magento ran so fast that it was like using new software. I highly recommend Nexcess’ hosting and support.
