2. Where is shopify web hosted reviews?
In 2016 through 2017, Shopify has improved on several fronts, especially with a much improved checkout process.
Pros of Using Shopify
Built-in Speed & Security for Hosting:An all-in-one solution like Shopify allows you to turn that side of the business over to the pros and just let them worry about hackers, caching, compliance, and a whole range of issues that come with hosting an online store. Shopify can do things like pay bounties to security researchers to hack-proof their systems. Shopify is safe and legit.
All The Necessary Features:Shopify had everything you needed to run an amazing online store – without being nickel and dimed in upgrades or left out to dry without a key feature.
Great Customer Support:With Shopify – you get answers fast.
Marketing:Shopify doesn’t offer the fanciest marketing tools on the planet (as part of the main package – they offer more in the App Marketplace) – but they do include the essentials – and they make sure they do the essentials really well.

Cons of Using Shopify
Pricing:If you have a small online store –Shopify is going to be more expensive than BigCommerce at the beginning.In 2014, Shopify has restructured their pricing in line with new industry business models.
Hacking around customization:Now to the con of their customization setup – they use a unique setup to customize their themes versus using something like PHP for their templates. It’s a huge plus in some ways, but for someone who loves to tweak things without doing a full-on customization, it can be annoying.
Shopify Jargon:Shopify has a slightly steeper curve just because the jargon the use is slightly off.
