While this being stated, the specialty of this platform makes it a great opportunity for others to choose the hosting environment and then find exactly the one that suits the business needs. The developers can find the best hosting solution according to their budget and scale.
  2. While the community is a free and open-source one, this makes Magento a perfect choice for small and medium-sized businesses. However, the medium and large scale businesses might find that the community version advantages are not enough for them. In this case, the enterprise edition.
    The only drawback of this edition is the high price. For the smaller and medium-sized businesses, the total cost of this version is a little unaffordable. Therefore, it is reasonable for these companies to go for the community version.
