Create.net Review: Creating an E-Commerce Site But Don’t Have Any Coding Skills?

Create.net Introduction

Create Internet Ltd. (more commonly known as Create.net) is a full-service ecommerce hosting provider based in Brighton, in the East Sussex county of South East England. As a full-service provider, Create also offers design templates and a content management system for online store owners. Depending on the package, marketing services and order processing features are also available.

For other business websites and personal blogs, Create also offers hosting packages. However, the full suite of content management and marketing services are reserved for their ecommerce customers.

Services

Create offers six different ecommerce hosting packages for online retailers. Their packages suit retailers just dipping their toes in selling online for the first time, established online retailers, and fully developed, high traffic online enterprises.

The following features are included with each hosting plan:

* A fully-hosted website * Monthly or yearly payment plans * No contracts or transaction fees * A personal account manager * Compatibility with all computer makes and models * Domain management * Email administration

Plans and pricing change based on the amount of storage and bandwidth included in the hosting package. At the minimum, three of those plans feature unlimited bandwidth – along with enough storage space to include multiple photos of each product in your store. Based on the size of the store and features included in the store’s content management system, plans and pricing may also fluctuate.

In general, the more products you want to sell and the more customization and flexibility you want to offer your customers, the more you will need to plan to pay Create each month to host your online store.

Specializations

There are many hosting providers who offer 1-click installations of leading ecommerce systems and shopping cart scripts to help websites generate revenue through selling online.

Create specializes in ecommerce, and provides each of its customers with a one-stop shop for hosting and building their web location and then promoting it through a variety of programs.

Each hosting package featuring their built-in content management system includes the following features standard:

Checkout Features

* Multiple postage options * Simple check out

Design & Content Features

* Professional templates with responsive design (HTML5-friendly) and custom HTML design * Editable colors * Drop menus * Widgets * Galleries and slideshows * footer content

Product Features

* Product search functionality * Related product suggestions * “Customer Also Bought” suggestions

Marketing Features

* Social media, sharing, and email to a friend widgets * Search engine submission (not SEO services) * Blogging * On-page SEO management (title tag, meta descriptions, image optimization, rich meta data/schema markup, etc.) * Sitemap creation

Reporting Features

* Google Analytics integration and dashboard * Shop dashboard * Custom tracking codes

Depending on the hosting plan you choose, Create also provides a wide variety of product features, marketing features, and order processing features to help improve the shopping experience of your customers and increase the visibility of your products on some of the Internet’s largest online shopping portals.

Customer Service

Create.net serves each one of its customers with access to a dedicated account manager. Unlike many hosting companies, Create also includes the names and faces of many of its team members on its website. This is not your average nameless, faceless website hosting provider.

Security

According to Create.net’s website, all of their payment gateway partners are 100% secure. There are no mentions on their website about the security of their own hosting environments, however, so proceed with a little caution.

Billing & Payment Policies

Create offers two payment options – monthly billing and annual billing. While your monthly hosting fee will change depending on how you choose to be billed, Create does not force its customers into contracts. There are also no transaction fees for hosting your online store with Create.

Summary

For webmasters looking to get started with online retail, there may be few better hosting providers to start your journey with than Create. Their pricing plans are affordable, their customer support is responsive, and their content management system is robust enough to give you a fighting chance against the biggest names in your niche.

However, webmasters working with little to no budget will not enjoy the fact that in order to be competitive, they will probably find themselves in one of Create’s mid-tier plans at the absolute minimum. Many user experience features that online shoppers have now come to expect as part of the buying process are unavailable with Create’s cheapest plans.

If you have no web design skills, no time to devote towards inbound marketing, a little extra money to burn, and no interest in finding other open source alternatives to Create, then this all-in-one ecommerce solution may be right for you.

While the learning curve may be higher and you may have to do some more clicking to do, there are ways to do ecommerce with a more cost effective hosting provider. As an alternative to Create, explore one of the many open source ecommerce platforms with open source plugins that will be able to be hosted securely on another provider’s network.
