    Despite all mentioned benefits, Magento has weak sides:
    - In order to manage Magento store in a proper way, you should have a strong design and development expertise.
    - Furthermore, it is resource consuming platform and for this reason your store will run quite slowly. That’s why shared hosting will not be suitable for Magento store.
    - Appropriate hosting will increase maintenance cost. Moreover, if you face some issues, which have to be fixed or need to upgrade a store you will have to hire a freelancer, who will customize a store in a proper way. In order to expand stores functionality you can choose between numerous extensions, but remember, many of them are paid.
