Case Study – Magento Community 32 Hosting Platform – Growershouse.com

Growers House is a family owned and operated hydroponics supply and indoor gardening center.  They have both a retail and online store based out of Tucson, AZ to service customers locally and globally.  It is their belief that old business practices are becoming a scarce commodity today.  Their goal is to provide customers a large selection, wholesale pricing, expert advice, comparison tests, and most importantly, customer service.  Growers House got in touch with us to help design and manage their Magento Hosting Platform because their current web pages took a long time to load.   The current Magento eCommerce platform that was used by GrowersHouse was not designed to accommodate the rapidly growing amount of traffic and the challenge was to provide an environment that could easily sustain 250 active clients without affecting performance.

After testing various pages we quickly discovered that the average time to first byte clocked in at 11.339 seconds and complete page load times ranged from 5 to 59 seconds.

 

After Moving To The Community 32 Dedicated Platform with JetRails(TM), page load times and time to first byte are faster than ever.  Rather than spending time taking phone calls about the site not working, GrowersHouse is now doing what they do best; taking care of customers.

Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 Test 5 Average Results
First Byte 0.329 0.323 0.313 0.309 0.305 0.315
Load Time 2.925 2.560 3.030 2.999 3.194 2.941
Fully Loaded Time 3.185 2.966 3.486 2.043 3.431 3.022

 

Growershouse.com can now handle 250 active clients without compromising site performance with the Community 32 Dedicated Platform with JetRails(TM) Pro.

Reliability and customer service that is rare and refreshing. We have been using eBoundHost for several years and unlike many companies who's service wanes over the years, the staff at eBound has consistently delivered top notch performance. Bravo!

eBoundHost.com has been a dream to work with. My questions are answered in minutes, the price is very reasonable, the interface is great, I am very happy with how smooth everything works.

EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!

Beau B.

I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.

Shannon I

From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!

S. Gino

Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.

Jerry Stark

No better web host on the market! Support is second to none.

Roger Hamilton

Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.

Steve Berry

I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.

Jason Maggard

eBoundHost provides the very best service I've experienced in hosting. It takes less than 24h to get an answer to any question. They're great.

Fabien Papleux

Awesome Service And Excellent Customer Service!

Cory Farbman

We at Alico have 4 domain names which we started subscribing at eBoundHost since more than 4 years. In brief they are the best webhosting provider with a sexy Control Panel and perfect fast response support.

I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.

Bart W

SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.

EG Pursley

Fast, reliable, full of features... Over the years, I have used more than a dozen hosts, both the big ones and smaller ones; eBoundHost.com is by far my favorite.
