Many web hosting companies provide the hardware, software and technical architecture needed to support secured ecommerce transactions.  They often provide the turnkey solutions and tools needed to set-up and customize the ecommerce application.

Turnkey ecommerce applications do a number things:

  1. allow products and services to be added to an online store
  2. allow the user interface to be customized (e.g. color, font, logos, graphics)
  3. provide e-shopping cart functionality for shopping
  4. authenticate visitors using User IDs and passwords
  5. perform credit card and/or debit card transaction
  6. notify appropriate parties when an ecommerce transaction occurs (e.g. shipping, accounting)

If you require ecommerce functionality on your website, it is important to find a reliable web hosting service.
