What are the min. Requirements?
An eCommerce projects required a web hosting and a domain name. A Web hosting can be windows hosting or Linux hosting(cPanel). A hosting is a online space where you will put your all PHP files or html files. So the question is which one is the best? windows hosting or Linux hosting. Answer is Linux cPanel hosting. You will have more control and option on Linux hosting. I will suggest you to buy hosting from Hostgator OR from bluehost. I am using Hostgator hosting which is very good.
Second is domain, domain name is URL address of your hosting files. for example www.blueappsoftware.com it is my website domain name. you can buy domain name from any provider like Godaddy, BigRock. After buying domain name you will have to link it with your hosting provider. To do so you have to set name server name on your domain.
Free web hosting & Domain
If you not want to buy the domain & hosting then you can try free hosting from 000webhost.com. You can watch my video on youtube for “How to use free webhosting“. You can follow the video lesson to get Free hosting for your eCommerce project.
You can also test eCommerce project on localhost, but I will suggest you to go with live server or use free hosting only. Localhost server are good for offline test but if your really wants to develop an eCommerce app for client, You should become familiar with live server.
SMS Gateway ?
Every eCommerce app uses SMS for OTP verification and order update notifications. I have explain how to use SMS gateway for mobile number verification in eCommerce android app course. It is optional for you if you don’t want to buy SMS gateway right now. I am using msg91.com for SMS notifications. You can choose other providers but
Important point is – International SMS delivery available ? Are they providing SMS API for integration ?
