ecommerce site on economy hosting & ssl

Hi,

 

Kindly answer the following 2-part query of mine:

 

(1) Would there be any issue if I were to create (install) an "e-commerce (opencart)" website on the "Economy Linux Hosting with cPanel" ?

 

(2) Also, would there be any issues when installing SSL cert (manually or otherwise..) from letsencrypt on the setup mentioned previously in (1) ?

 

Thank you

 

Edit: removed the whmcs for my current concern/query

I don't see any issues with running OpenCart on a cPanel account - Just remember that by it's nature a cPanel account is a shared server so therefore if you have a high volume of traffic it could be a bit slow

 

At one point I had 40 WordPress brochure sites in a single cPanel account (most sites got <500 visits per day) overall they performed ok - but they were simple without alot of database activity

Hi,

 

Kindly answer the following 2-part query of mine:

 

(1) Would there be any issue if I were to create (install) an "e-commerce (WHMCS or opencart)" website on the "Economy Linux Hosting with cPanel" ?

 

(2) Also, would there be any issues when installing SSL cert (manually or otherwise..) from letsencrypt on the setup mentioned previously in (1) ?

 

Thank you

1) I merged your two posts together - there is only one "Community" regardless of country you are using

 

2) To the best of my knowledge you will actually need to use a VPS or Dedicated Server for what you are describing - WHMCS is for use with cPanel but what it does is adds the billing features into WHM - the Linux Hosting with cPanel is a single cPanel account where as you are looking (based on your questions) for the ability to sell cPanel accounts to others.

Thank you for replying, but my main concern is about opencart. I have edited the post accordingly and it was my mistake earlier asking about whmcs as well; but, if we are only talking about opencart, then, what would the setup mentioned in the original post would face any issues?
