This review is about the character and dedication Xcart has demonstrated as a trusted server hosting company and ecommerce partner. They have earned my respect and trust like a good neighbor, trusted friend or cherished family member. This is a very sincere recommendation after a 10year history working with xcart who has become a valued part of our business.
Over the years xcart has challenged me to articulate my needs to them and I have challenged them to be patient with my lack of experience. Fast forward about 9 years to May of 2016 when my servers failed at one of their competitors hosting companies where my websites were hosted. It was a nightmare of epic proportion as my hosting company was so incompetent and insensitive while my business was hanging in the balance of destruction. They would not even take a phone call and everything had to be communicated through a painful slow not response ticket procedure. Turned out the back-up server we had paid for were not even functioning.
My trusted long-time local developer and xcart immediately started discussing options how to recover and quickly move our sites over to xcarts Enterprise Servers. Xcart took our calls and skypes at all hours of the day and on the weekends. There was a very small window when the servers were up and xcart and my developer grabbed what was needed. They absolutely earned our business and went over and above to achieve what I would say was nearly not possible.
The value and expertise xcart delivers with the Enterprise Server is outstanding. It is the best piece of mind and insurance I have ever invested in. The staff of xcart may be physically thousands of miles away but they have demonstrated some of the best communication and reliability I have ever experienced.

I have been working with xcart for around 9 years now and have managed multiple xcart websites. Previously we used a different company for our hosting but when xcart launched their hosting service I was eager to learn more, because I love their platform and support.
A key factor in us deciding to move was the datacentre located within the UK, this was great for us because we are located in the UK and as I'm sure you are aware server location is important, so I am sure whatever your location they can offer you options. Before we decided to move it was important to me to ensure that the server spec was the same as the current server as I didn’t want to slow our sites down by moving.
I was delighted to find that the server spec was actually better that the original server , so after moving to xcart hosting we saw an increase in site speed but also we are paying less each month for the hosting.
Also it is important to note that the support really is fantastic, there is a guy at xcart called Alex Diatchkov (Rocky) and he is charge of the hosting at xcart, if you can try to have a chat with Alex, he is really helpful and nothing is ever a problem. He has really helped us to reduce our costs , improve site performance and nothing has been a problem , in fact Alex has achieved all of our requests.
You can also feel secure knowing that your site will be backed up. I would advise that you really consider xcart hosting, take a look at their server packages and make contact with Alex. I have managed multiple xcart sites and I use nobody else now for our hosting. I am very pleased with xcart. Thank you Guys !!

I have been using one of X‑Carts premium Hosting plans for over a year now and the difference over previous hosting (1&1 Managed Server) is night and day.
X‑Cart reached out to me to just give it a try, no fuss, no problem if I switch back to my old hosting. They said we know it will be faster and you will have less technical issues that I were server related using the X‑Cart software. Having built up a trust and working relationship since 2003, I thought I would give it a go. I should note that I dont work for X-cart in any way and am providing the short review just based on my experience.
Firstly, I am using X‑Cart 5.3x Shopping cart and X‑Cart hosting is fine tuned for it. I have been using X‑Cart since 2003, so I have a good understanding of the software, but just used a standard server to get it to work, but it was limited and wasn't using the full potential. It was also causing technical issues as I went on.
Since X‑Cart 5.3x upgraded to PHP7 there were vast speed improvements which were only noticeable after moving to X‑Cart hosting.
My First view time for my pages more than doubled, (webpagetest.org) and suddenly my grades went from F on the First byte rate along with C's and one A, to all straight A's. Using a website like webpagetest.org can help you really compare the difference of a varied number of server details with a detailed breakdown. You may not even know your website is under performing and it could be costing you sales, especially if you are a an online shop.
The difference has meant no downtime, super fast page loading and happier customers browsing my shop.
If you are considering X‑Cart hosting, why not give it a go? The guys were super helpful and imported all of my FTP files over almost instantly. They switched it on and it was there.
There were a couple of slight niggling issues along the way in the early days. A couple of times the First time byte did fall very slow to 90 seconds, (https://www.webpagetest.org/result/161006_39_KE0/) however after I had notified the hosting team, they mentioned it was due to a slight incompatibility between X-cart and PHP7 and they closely monitored the situation and fine tuned it further to work perfectly. Since then there have been no issues with downtime or slow loading pages, so I assume it was an initial setup/ learning curve with the move to PHP7.
Included with the package I have, comes a dedicated support should I get stuck with any related server issues. They are always at hand and fix any issues relatively quickly should I have any.
If you want speed, service and a secure solution, then look no further. Especially if you are on X‑Cart 4 considering X‑Cart 5. Or already on X‑Cart 5 and not satisfied with the results you are getting. Best yet as I mentioned you can try it for free so what have you got to lose?

I have had actual, real-world experience with both AWS ( Amazon Web Services ) and CloudFlare ( www.cloudflare.com ) as both of these proffer so-called "cloud services". AWS actually harmed the thumbnail images that were originally placed into my X‑Cart shopping cart but which will have to be replicated by me. In fact upon speaking with an AWS representative just today, Feb. 2nd, 2016, I extolled X‑Cart Hosting for its amazingly fast web page downloading by a significant magnitude over either CloudFlare or my previous Lunarpages web server.
I want now to extol X‑Cart Hosting in the following manner: I signed up with X‑Cart Hosting as I already had had X‑Cart for basic shopping cart function. I am still configuring it, just to let you all know, especially since I must now re-establish all those lost thumbnail images destroyed, deleted by AWS and their S3 "storage" together with their CloudFront function. Still, as I have two (2) X‑Cart shopping carts ---- one as a hidden "sandbox" to try out Add-on modules, etc. and the 2nd "main" or "live" shopping cart ------ there was also a "leakage" in Lunarpages web server going from the X‑Cart "sandbox" into the "live" or "main" shopping cart and therefore this stituation could no longer be accepted or tolerated as it was an overall corrupting effect and constant distraction. So I arranged to move both X‑Cart shopping carts to X‑Cart Hosting and away from Lunarpages. Just that. Nothing more. What I didn't expect, however, was that X‑Cart Hosting provides a full-service web service!! Didn't expect that. And to my greater astonishment all of a sudden and without any "cloud stuff", all web pages of Relativity Science Calculator ( www.relativitycalculator.com ), including those containing so-called 'dynamic stuff' such as .mp4 and .swf Flash videos, now arrive into my view with amazingly fast viewing. It's lightning!! As in the speed of light for relativity!!
Furthermore, the couple of software engineers who arranged the move to X‑Cart Hosting were exceptionally gracious and talented! I mean it! In fact, when I tell folks that I'm dealing with exceptional Russian software folks, who also by the way are superior in English ( almost better than mine ha! ) grammar and spelling, my American friends cannot believe it. But I insist. The Russian software folks at X‑Cart are indeed exceptional in all regards of software engineering and communication. I cannot, therefore, extol X‑Cart shopping cart and X‑Cart Hosting as a web server too much. Really.
In summary: X‑Cart is "From Russia with Love!" in all respects of what these folks are all about.
My true advice based upon my real-world, actual experience is to get X‑Cart shopping cart and additionally X‑Cart Hosting!! Try it! You'll love it! Both of these softwares!!

X-Cart hosting FAQ

Where are your servers physically located?

Our data centers are located in the US (New York, San Francisco), Canada (Toronto), Europe (Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London), India (Bangalore) and Asia (Singapore).

What is the difference between a shared and a dedicated SSL certificate?

Shared SSL uses X-Cart domain instead of your own domain name (https://yourstore.x-shops.com)

Dedicated SSL uses your own domain name (https://www.yourstore.com)
Most businesses prefer using a dedicated SSL certificate as it appears more professional to visitors.

How can I upgrade/downgrade my plan?

Just sent us a request and our billing manager will provide you with a detailed information.

How long does it take to install/transfer the store?

Fresh X‑Cart installation is done within one business day. The transfer of your existing X‑Cart-based store is a little more complex, but it's started within one working day, too. It consists of 2 steps. First of all, we transfer a test copy, it's accessible only for you - via a test URL. After you test the store in the new environment and approve of the result, you select the convenient time of the final migration and we schedule it.

What are the advantages of VPS?

You obviously want to choose the most cost-efficient hosting. Dedicated hosting tends to be too expensive for most ecommerce startups. Here comes ecommerce VPS:

Security - you are the only one on this VPS server and there are no shared accounts.

Isolation From the Activity of Others on the Same Host - If another user on your host's services is misbehaving, this will have little to no impact on your VPS service. If their activities crash their server, they do not crash yours. In fact, only their virtual machine crashes. This has no impact on the physical server on which the virtual machines are run.

Guaranteed Speed - No matter what anyone else is doing on another VPS hosted on the same machine, you are guaranteed your speed. If you have two CPU's allocated to you, then you will always have those two CPU's available to your operations. The amount of RAM you have paid for in a VPS setting will always be available to your operations, regardless of what else is happening on the physical machine.

Solid State Drive (SSD) - Solid state drives provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives. SSD has lower latency, faster read/writes, and supports more IOPs (input output operations per second) compared to HDD, which lead to a better and faster performance.

Scalability - the hosting plan can be instantly upgraded.
