In order to run NexoPOS correctly, you need to have a good hosting which provide all the required features for NexoPOS. This guide provide a short guide about how to choose a web hosting for NexoPOS & Gastro.
NexoPOS hosting recommendation
NexoPOS is a light PHP web application build for retail and used as a POS system. It can either be installed locally or remotely on a web server. If you choose to install it locally, you don’t really have to worry about the performances. This statement is true, unless you plan to have a local network with multiple registers (cash registers). We’ll assume you decide to host it online. Now all depends if you would like to use the multistore feature or not.
If you plan to use the multistore feature with up to 5 registers per stores. Then you should rather choose a VPS with at least 2 GB of RAM. Contabo, HostGator and GoDaddy has some VPS deals that you can choose.
If you plan to have multistore with mutiple registers per stores, then you should search a dedicated server. You can have a decicated server with a good performance at iweb.com. If you’re a developper, you can choose Linode or DigitalOcean with prices starting at 5 USD/month.
Gastro Hosting Recommendation
A restaurant application needs to be fast. It will be a wrong advice if we’re encouraging you to choose a shared hosting for Gastro. All orders needs to be available to the kitchen as soon as possible and printer as well. If there is a latency on the process, the entire restaurant workflow will be affected, resulting in frustrated customers.
A good recommendations for Gastro is a VPS, which has at least 2 GB of RAM. If it has a multicore processor that’s even better. OVH has some interesting deals that you can find affordable.
