Finally Start Driving Organic Traffic to Your Store

Finally Start Driving Organic Traffic to Your Store

It’s no secret that indexing is one of the biggest bottlenecks for Magento online stores. It is especially tricky and causes the most issues if you have a vast product catalog. The reason is that Magento has a bloated database with millions of records in its log tables, which is too much for an average online store. All that makes upgrades tedious and kills organic lead generation.

X-Cart stores are speedy and secure enough to compete in search engines. Magento to X-Cart migration is sure to bring you more organic traffic. To top it all, there is a bevy of tools for search engine optimization, including the ability to:

Set up SEO-friendly URLs

Tweak title, ALT, and meta elements

Check the overall SEO health of your website

Access robots.txt and XML sitemap, and allow Google to do the same

Use Google Analytics to track your website performance

Get Ready For the Mobile Era

Get Ready For the Mobile Era

Judging by the reviews, eCommerce retailers migrate their businesses to X-Cart in order to create mobile-friendly websites. X-Cart templates are ready for mobile out-of-the-box, satisfying both smartphone shoppers and search engines alike. Magento, by contrast, has poor optimization for mobile — websites are fast on PC but 3x slower on mobile.

There are 1.5K addons in the X-Cart marketplace, and while that’s less than what Magento offers, all of them are thoroughly tested and proven to work correctly with X-Cart. Most addons even include a free demo.

With almost 6K extensions in the Magento Marketplace, only a few hundreds are inbuilt (114 in Magento Commerce and 749 in Magento Community). The other 5,5K are from 3rd party developers, and most of them are of poor quality. Plus, they are rarely designed and tested to be performant with large catalogs. And even a tiny slip-up in extension development can result in performance disasters.

There are many third-party integrations, as well as out-of-the-box features that are included. If there is something missing, it is easy to work with their [X-Cart] development services to implement the change — and fairly reasonable pricing and timelines.

Hosting

Cut Your Hosting Expenses in Half

Cut Your Hosting Expenses in Half

X-Cart PHP shopping cart is several steps ahead of Magento when it comes to server resource usage. Unlike Magento, it requires 20% fewer resources from the server, which is rather cost-effective. Installed on our VPS hosting, X-Cart stores show even better results. Why? We host X-Cart and X-Cart only, hence the finely-tuned hosting environment that ensures the maximum performance of our shopping solution.

Magento, on the contrary, requires their customers to host elsewhere. And, due to Magento’s extensive server requirements, this is often very costly. Running Magento stores definitely needs more resources, including a dedicated VPS hosting with plenty of memory and a multi-core CPU. Also, a multi-node server installation may be necessary to handle the load.

We tried other hosting solutions, and when we moved it to the X-Cart platform, one-speed differences were extreme, to say the least — 2-3 times as fast.

Magento requires 2-3 times more resources to run, which results in hosting costs following suit (resulting in 2-3 times the original cost).

X-Cart vs Magento [Q&A]

How long does it take to perform the full migration project?

Migration to X-Cart won’t take more than a month — compared to three months with Magento.

Note: Your store will be up throughout the whole Magento data migration process. Switching DNS records, however, takes a while. No matter where you head, be it Magento 2, or Shopify, or X-Cart, you’ll have to spare at least a couple of hours or more for the changes to propagate. It’s a necessary evil 🙂

Is X-Cart a free shopping cart?

It’s not. However, there’s a downloadable edition for developers that you may use for 30 days free of charge. You’ll have to host it somewhere, though, at least locally. You can also schedule a free X-Cart demo with our solution advisors and get a definitive tour of the key features. This will help you get a clear picture of what our shopping cart looks like from the inside and make the right decision.

Where can I find guides to Magento shopping cart migration?

Data migration is way more comfortable if you have a clear plan. This step-by-step guide will explain how you can migrate to X-Cart in five easy steps.

Is an automated migration from Magento to X-Cart possible?

Sure. X-Cart data transfer can be performed with a store migration app — either by Cart2Cart or the one by LitExtension. However, our team can migrate data from your Magento store to X-Cart better and more carefully. Due to the established workflow, migration is performed at a price that is lower than the one charged by automated shopping cart migration services.

Below are the things the Magento to X-Cart migration app can transfer automatically. Our replatforming experts can migrate everything — including custom-developed design and features — with professional support and post-launch testing.
