Ecommerce Hosting

As the name implies, ecommerce hosting (or e-commerce hosting) is hosting that involves business transactions of some sort. This can be an online store selling widgets, it can be banking, or any other activity that can be defined as online commerce. Generally this will involve such technology as encryption, secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates for that encryption and also to ensure identity, merchant accounts with banks so that credit cards can be used for payment, and payment processors who act as middlemen between the ecommerce site and the banks.
