Start Webshop with Magento

Magento is one of the popular e-commerce platforms today and it is ideal to start webshop (webwinkel beginnen in Dutch) with this application. There are several reasons for which people, especially online business owners prefer their web shop to be on the Magento platform.

Magento provides high security levels for online transactions. Since, the number of hacking incidents is on the rise and rampant all over the Internet, it is imperative to have an e-commerce store that is secure. The primary step is to have a secure URL in order to start webshop. To begin the process, a secure SSL certificate is required for secure login in the Magento account. This will also allow you to set up the URLs both backend and frontend for your web shop (webwinkel in Dutch).
  •  Another security feature of Magento is that if you are looking to get a new password for the Magento account then you need to have the email address that is associated with the account.   
  • Magento has the facility to remove the secret URL key that is used for login to the Magento account. The login session of your Magento backend has these secret key and hackers can easily hack into your Magento admin account using the key. Magento also has the feature of disabling the addition of secret URL keys from the Magento backend. 
  • Magento is an e-commerce open source platform and to setup web shops on Magento platform, you need to have the knowledge of PHP and HTML. In addition to these, CSS and MySql knowledge is also essential.
