    If the server supports databases, web applications and payment gateway integration you can host the e-commerce applications.

    I thought they can be the same? If you install Wordpress and Ecommerce plugin, that's an online store right? And you don't need any special hosting spec...

    There is not much difference between E-commerce packages and Regular Hosting packages. But while selecting a host for E-commerce website, the end user has to be very careful because he is relying on the hosting provider for his Online business. So if even the website goes down due to Hosting provider fault, the end user is at loss and he has to suffer a lot in terms of money. So you should look for a Reliable and Secured hosting provider who has 99.9% Guaranteed uptime.

    One of the major differences, I think would be is that, the ecommerce host is PCI certified..

    Web Hosting include Free domain name, custom e-mail. Site building tools and disk space allow you to build a website on your domain name and E-commerce hosting include Web hosting + ecommerce capabilities such as a product catalog, shopping cart, and order management.

    Establishment of an online business involves making many decisions. One of the key factors you should consider the construction and maintenance of your site. Effectively represented in the online business website. It is, therefore, that any decision is taken must be carefully weighed and examined. Even before the site up and running there are many challenges that present themselves to you, especially if you are a novice in the world of online trading.

    Ecommerce hosting should provide you with merchant accounts, payment gateways and probably a built in shopping cart. You can get ecommerce applications to host on regular hosting as well, but ecommerce hosting should make it easy for newbies to start selling.

    It is all about the provider's technologies and ability to support applications and other commercial stuff.

    Also the reliability is important. Quality eCommerce hosting is possible at such providers as serverpoint.com and hostingsource.com. These are what I know to be good.

    Depends on what you are calling E-commerce hosting. Used to E-commerce hosting meant that you had a dedicated appliance type hosting from Miva Merchant or similar. Now any hosting account with a SSL can be a E-commerce site. There are still a lot of companies that put out true E-commerce platforms that meet PCI Compliance and such though. I think the simple answer to your question though is yes you can put in the plugin and a SSL and run it on any site that gives you a dedicated IP for the SSL.

    E-commerce website, enduser has to be careful for relying on his Online business.
