    Smile X-cart support?

    Hello! I am currently looking for a new host for my online digital scrapbooking store. I am wondering if PowWeb is able to handle/support the X-cart shopping cart? We also use a lot of bandwidth and space with the large digital files. I know some sites say it is unlimited bandwidth but then do put a cap on it...this type of thing generally happens during a big sales time in the digital scrapbooking world.

    Anyhoo, just wanted to see if any of you know about the possibility of using X-cart here...I did not see anything in the FAQ or knowledge database

    Oh, and our store is currently down due to our CRAPPY host, [competitor]...there are several of us store owners who are looking to move to a new host

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    If you use a lot of bandwidth and you have large files to download via scripts then Powweb isn't likley to be suitable. (Downloads will time out after 60secs.)

    You should probably be looking at a price point in hosts other than offered by a shared environment.

    There are outside alternatives to hosting the digital downloads on your website. But i dont know if im allowed to advertise them. Some of them use paypal and give you a paypal style cart system to use on your website which is a simple copy and paste.

    I used this option when i "tried" selling music downloads.
