Hello,

 

Is webhosting with Adobe company obligatory for using Adobe Business Catalyst or can I have my own webhosting after I create my eshop?

    Hi

     

    Yes, it does require hosting on an Adobe server, but depending on the options you use it may also be a 'free' hosting.

     

    See - http://www.businesscatalyst.com/

    But I do not know if it is obligatory - I do not think so - I think when you buy it then you can have your own webhosting -at least it is mentioned in Muse FAQ - BC.

    Hi

     

    With BC adobe hosting is obligatory, as it is a complete adobe hosted solution.

    BC Modules do not work on other servers.

     

    If you build your site with MU or DW and don't use BC Modules for CMS, e-commerce, blogs, etc... then you can use any host you wish.

    Sorry, I cannot confirm that e-shop will or won't work on 3rd party hosting. I've never used it.   Why don't you ask the BC Forum?

    Hi all,

     

    let me clarify this issue. As long as you try to build a BC site (ecommerce as well) with any type of modules belonging to BC, then you'll need to use Adobe Hosting. Adobe Business Catalyst is an integrated solution and, for the moment, its modules don't work with other hosting providers.

     

    You can build a simple HTMLwebsite (New Site vs. New Business Catalyst Site) and you can use any hosting provider that you want. Here you can include any functionality that doesn't have to do with BC.

     

    Of course, from our perspective, we would love if you hosted with us, but if you want otherwise, you can use a FTP/SFTP client to upload your site to other hosting providers.

     

    Thanks
