If you intend to start a new webshop, then you should of course also consider whether you have an interest in establishing a solution that is based on either a hosted system or an open-source system. There are advantages and disadvantages to both, which also means that you have to make sure to choose for your own needs and requirements.
One of the first things you need to consider when choosing the system that will be used to build your online store is whether it should be a hosted system or you intend to base it on an open-source solution. Subsequently, there are of course a number of other decisions that must also be made before you can open the doors for your new webshop.
Benefits of a hosted webshop
As mentioned above, there are both pros and cons associated with choosing a hosted webshop. One of the very special advantages is, of course, that you can get started easily and quickly with your upcoming webshop – regardless of whether you have previous experience or not, and regardless of what you intend for you to sell on the upcoming webshop you are establishing.
Most often, it takes just a few clicks before you can start a hosted webshop like f.ex. a Wannafind webshop, which is one of the most popular hosted webshops on the Danish market. However, there are also many Danes who use a scanned webshop, which will also be able to compete with the corresponding solution from Wannafind, which is why it is also a popular solution.
Advantages of an open-source webshop
Instead, you can also choose to base your upcoming webshop on a system that is open-source and thus also free to use. Of course, it also means that you have the opportunity to save a lot of money by choosing this solution, but it requires that you make sure to find a solution in relation to choosing a web hotel that can host your webshop. Here you can f.ex. take a look at Unoeuro’s solution.
Not only is it possible to save money, an open-source system is of course also a know more open. It gives you the opportunity to develop further on the system, so that it can be expanded and further developed to be constantly up to date and ideal for your requirements and needs – this is something that is very rarely possible on a hosted solution, as they are more closed.
Choose based on your needs and requirements
When you are faced with choosing a system that can be used to build your upcoming webshop, there should be no doubt that it is extremely important that you make sure to choose based on your own needs and requirements, whether it leads you towards a hosted webshop system or you expect that you are best served with a so-called open-source system for your upcoming webshop.
