Advanced Features

Our new ecommerce website hosting gives you all the basic functionality you would expect out of an online shopping cart, but includes the latest innovation such as widgets, Facebook integration and a drag and drop design interface.

Our shopping cart is completely scalable and is suitable for selling a single item or even a catalogue containing thousands of products sold on a daily basis.

Hosting ecommerce with UK2 means that setting up an online store has never been so easy.

  • Drag & Drop

    For those of us who aren't tech savvy, you'll be happy to know that no web development/programming is needed. Simply choose a theme and then move the various sections into place with a simple click of your mouse. Easy peasy.
  • Ready-to-install Themes

    Your shopping cart comes pre-loaded with a variety of easily installable ecommerce themes. Choose a theme, move sections around with the drag and drop feature and you're all set.
  • Works on all Browsers

    Our ecommerce site hosting will work across all of the browsers including: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari.
  • Language & Currency Options

    Take your store global by allowing users to select their preferred payment currency plus display your site to them in their own language. This is done with a standard administrative tool.
  • Optimised for Mobile

    Your shopping cart will be optimised for mobile and your customers can browse your site and purchase goods with their mobile phones.
  • Search Engine Optimised

    The layout including headings, meta & title tags, product info and page title is already optimised for indexation by search engines. If you are looking to personally optimise your page, you will have full control to change these settings.
  • Sitemaps

    Sitemaps file list URL's of your website and allow search engines to crawl your site more intelligently.
  • User-Friendly URL's

  • 2 Ways to Sell

    Sell goods the most popular way - through your shopping cart and now through widgets! Widgets are HTML which allow potential customers to buy your product through another website which they may be browsing.
  • Out of the Box & Online

    Installation of your shopping cart is quick and easy. Choose a design template, add your products and start taking orders.
  • Ordering is Effortless

    A step-by-step ordering process is clearly laid out. A helpful ordering timeline allows customers to see steps beginning to end. The shopping cart is noticeable and easily accessible for quick checkout. Orders can also be tracked by customers using a front end tracking system.
  • Facebook Shop Integration

    Integrate your online store with Facebook! The integration allows you to embed your storefront directly into Facebook as a native Facebook application, and accept orders directly from the social network.
  • Product Reviews, Comparisons & Recommendations

  • Unlimited Products & Categories

    The only limit when it comes to how many products and categories you have is defined by your hosting package. Shared hosting can easily run a store with 10 000 products - anything more than that and you need to look into hosting on the ecommerce cloud.
