Magento, the world leading open source e-Commerce solution, has made the difficult decision to shut down their Magento Go offerings.  This is to allow them to focus their efforts and resources on developing their core Magento product and get away from offering a hosting solution.  They are no longer accepting new accounts and will be shutting the service down altogether on February 1, 2015.

As a business owner, I can understand the difficulty in making such a tough decision but I applaud them for focusing back on what they do best.  We here at Allegro have had great success in using their products for our own clients, implementing in such diverse areas as furniture sales, organic health food products, plumbing supplies and direct B2B interactions.

I am looking forward to seeing the results of this new focus in the coming year.  You can read more about Magento Go and their plans on their site.
