® is one of today’s most popular e-commerce platforms and widely used for automating online stores. Integrating this open-source content management system with the LeaseWeb CDN can really optimize performance of your e-commerce web site and in this blog we describe what you need to do to set it up quickly and easily.
A couple of assumptions before we get started:
- Magento® is installed on the origin server.
- An “Origin” that points to your Magento® installation is already defined within your LeaseWeb CDN control panel.
LeaseWeb provides powerful hosting infrastructure that is blazingly fast, has maximum uptime and behaves in a reliable manner. This is an essential part of our service, because just like pilots rely on the systems of their aircraft, our customers trust our solutions to work without a fault.
Why do I draw this comparison? Well, LeaseWeb was originally founded by two pilots. Way back in 1997, Con Zwinkels and Laurens Rosenthal flew huge airplanes from one continent to the other. During their free time, they developed a commercial website which eventually evolved into the global hosting provider we know and love today. Now, I’ll save the full company history for another day, but whether it’s steering complex machines through the air or setting up complex machines in data centers, reliable technology has always formed the heart and soul of LeaseWeb.
That’s why we were once again the sponsor of one of Europe’s greatest airshows, the aptly named LeaseWeb Texel Airshow:
Plus the full range of Cloud, Bare Metal and CDN services!
This week, we launched a new-look global partner network program to offer reseller and channel partners a more competitive, market-oriented and comprehensive package of products, services and support.

The KB is evolving, and we encourage you to be part of this interesting journey.

Virtual servers are a cost-effective alternative to bare metal servers. They function like a bare metal server, but run on a flexible virtualization layer. LeaseWeb’s virtual servers suit all businesses, from small to medium workloads and offer a reliable, highly scalable infrastructure with full redundancy and fast network-attached storage.
Since data traffic will not stop growing any time soon and there never seems to be enough bandwidth, LeaseWeb has some good news for new and existing cloud customers: we are increasing all our data traffic packages for cloud by four to twenty (!) times: to 4000 GB (Small) for the Server Pack S, 6000 GB (Medium) for the Server Pack M, 8000 GB (Large) for the Server Pack L and 10.000 GB (Extra Large) for the Server Pack XL.

LeaseWeb improves continually to meet your expectations
Listening to your customer is a key driver to success, as industry leaders show. The voice of the customer is articulated in an ongoing dialogue. When customers share their feedback, they expect you to listen, act and inform about the enhancements you have been making and are working on. And right they are. But even when the customer is satisfied, that is not good enough. Only when the customer’s expectations are met or exceeded, a satisfied customer can turn into a loyal customer.
The various LeaseWeb services companies are always looking to improve the processes involved with handling abuse notifications and to increase user-friendliness.
Over the past few years, we have received valuable feedback on the abuse handling process from customers and third parties who submitted notifications. With that feedback in mind, we have developed a brand new system that will further streamline the abuse notification handling process. This system was launched on July 1st 2015 and the first responses are very positive.
The second annual LeaseWeb Tech Summit took place in Amsterdam on 4 June attracting over 200 participants. More than a dozen speakers from a wide range of international companies gave a series of presentations on the theme of “Automate. Build. Secure.´ Kicking off the day at The Undercurrent venue on the banks of the river IJ in Amsterdam, Netherlands, LeaseWeb’s Innovation Director Laurens Rosenthal told the mainly developer and DevOps audience that the event was a chance to get under the hood of the internet and that “the more technical the presentations, the better”. He was right.
Automate. Build. Secure.
On the “Automation” theme, Marc van Eijk boldly stated that “Microsoft is cool again” going on to describe the benefits of Azure Resource Manager and his vision of how the hybrid cloud of the future will look. Job Snijders of NTT talked about his company’s use of SDN and some of the lessons learned from using automated control while Paul de Raaij explained how Coolblue develops its business critical software in-house using the principle of “continuous integration”.
