Hosting
NeuCart offers two methods of purchase:
  1. Purchase the software and install it on your site.
  2. Purchase the hosting plan and have your store hosted on NeuCart.com
What is the difference? In general, the hosted version of the software is for customers whose primary website is not hosted on PHP servers. The chart below compares the two NeuCart software options:
Installed NeuCart Hosted NeuCart
Cost $85 $10/month*

Installation
Installation Process You purchase the installation software, upload it to your site, and run the installation script. The installation generally takes under one minute to run.

NeuCart support handles the creation of the MySQL database and the installation of the NeuCart software.
Upgrade Process You purchase the upgrade software, upload it to your site, and run the upgrade script. The upgrade generally takes under 20 seconds to run. You inform the NeuCart support team that you would like to upgrade your system, and NeuCart will perform the upgrade.
