Now, let's learn the basics about Magento.
What is Magento
Magento is a robust eCommerce CMS. Understanding these three terms: ‘robust’, ‘eCommerce’, and ‘CMS’ would amply explain to you what Magento is.
Starting with CMS, it is an acronym for Content Management System. To understand what a Content Management System is, let me give you a brief overview of its historical development, which will give you clear idea of what it is and why it is used. When website development emerged, people used to create websites from scratch as per clients’ requirements, building a font-end using HTML/CSS/JS etc, a back-end in different back-end languages like PHP, .NET etc, setting up databases, and configuring everything.
But this approach had two problems. First, as clients didn’t know any programming, every time they needed to edit their website or add/modify content, they had to call the web development company, and that cost money and time. The second problem was that it was a lot of work to create websites from scratch every time. Some websites could take 3-6 months to develop.
As a solution to the first problem, developers started developing some user-friendly admin panels for their websites, where non-technical web managers could easily add/modify content without messing around with the code.
And for the second problem, they realized that most of the websites they developed had many things in common, so instead of creating websites from scratch, they could develop some good starting points, which provided all the functionality, and then users could modify them as per their needs. The combination of these two solutions is a Content Management System. Now the concept is quite popular, and a constant struggle between different CMSs has made them over time more user-friendly and easy to install, and there are tons of extensions/plugins available, which can enhance your CMS’s functionality.
The second term, eCommerce, is sort of self-explanatory. It is related to online shopping. So the reason Magento is different from other non-eCommerce CMSs like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc., is that unlike them, it is a dedicated eCommerce CMS, whose prime purpose is to provide an online store.
Proof of Magento's robustness is that it is used by many large-scale eCommerce enterprises with millions of dollars in revenues like Nordstrom, Adidas and North Face. In fact, Magento Enterprise Edition can support more than 350 million catalog views and 487,000 orders per day.
Who Is Magento Aimed At?
As explained above, Magento is a very robust and powerful CMS, and it's used by many popular and heavy-traffic online stores. That implies it is definitely a good fit for large-scale eCommerce websites, but now the question arises, is it a good fit for small-scale online stores? The answer to that isn’t quite so simple.
Let’s admit, prior to Magento 2.0, Magento wasn’t very user-friendly, and definitely not very easy to install. It isn’t that installation requires lot of steps, it’s just that unless you have installed it many times before, you are sure to come across different issues/errors while installing it. The Magento admin panel also wasn’t very user-friendly and intuitive. Another big issue with Magento was that it is a huge CMS with tons of files, and that caused slow performance on web sites.
Almost all of these issues have been well-addressed in the release of version 2.0, but still it’s not a CMS that would be recommended for a few-item store, where you know you won’t be expanding your store in future as well. However, if you plan on expanding your online store in future, then, we would recommend starting with Magento, as it is a CMS with proven performance to support large stores, and it’s definitely worth the effort of installing it in the first place instead of switching to Magento at a later stage, which is quite a hassle.
How Can I Install Magento?
To install Magento, you need to go through these few steps:
Choose the Magento version you need to install: Magento 1 or Magento 2. The preferred choice for new Magento installs should be Magento 2.
Make sure your server has the right versions of PHP, MySQL and Apache to support Magento.
Upload the Magento files on your server, and run the installation wizard.
Optional: Install dummy data during installation, if needed.
Verify the install, and make sure the admin panel and front-end are working properly.
