ESSENTIEL Antwerp designs a stylish web shop on Combell’s flexible infrastructure

Essentiel logoFrom now on, the Belgian fashion design house ESSENTIEL Antwerp also sells its branded apparel online. The web shop, which runs on the open source platform Magento, combines an elegant look with a user-friendly interface. Combell provides efficient and flexible hosting based on a virtual infrastructure, so that the site stays available even on the busiest of bargain days.


Performance analysis for Magento

ESSENTIEL Antwerp chose the Magento platform for its central development environment. “Magento powers our e-shop. We use Apache as our web server. The database in the background is MySQL. These are all Open Source components, which allows us to save a lot on license fees in the long run. We also manage an entire copy of this environment ourselves. It works as a backup infrastructure and testing environment. We synchronise both environments very regularly”.


Quality hosting on branded hardware

Danny Broers

“When, as a brand, you are getting ready to launch an e-shop, it is of vital importance that it always remains accessible, that it is permanently monitored and that it can stay online flawlessly even in the event of a problem”, says Danny Broers. “From that starting point, I thought it was imperative to choose a hosting partner that I know would be available at all times and who always helps find solutions.”
