Cheap Recommended Magento 2.4.0 Hosting

Magento is an ecommerce platform built on open source technology which provides online merchants with a flexible shopping cart system, as well as control over the look, content and functionality of their online store. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools.

For the third year in a row, Magento has powered more Internet Retailer Top 1000 merchants than anyone else—more than double the amount of any other provider.

Magento has been named the top eCommerce platform on the inaugural Internet Retailer B2B eCommerce 300 guide, with 41 merchants that list Magento as their eCommerce platform.

Magento is the top eCommerce platform to the Internet Retailer Hot 100, representing retailers that deliver the most innovative ideas in commerce.

We are excited to announce the latest version of the Magento platform to help continue that success into 2019. Magento 2.4.0.0 is here with new tools to help merchants fuel their growth while empowering developers to deliver on client expectations faster and more easily.

MULTI-SOURCE INVENTORY

As merchants grow and evolve, so do the ways they sell, store, and deliver their products. Multi-Source Inventory (MSI) helps merchants improve operational efficiency by managing inventory across multiple physical locations from within the Magento admin. Additionally, merchants can:

  • Assign products and quantities to each fulfillment source, such as warehouses, stores, distribution centers or third-party drop shippers.
  • Track inventory at each source for easier management of inventory.
  • Streamline operations with rules to prioritize and automatically control the inventory sources that are used to fulfill orders for each website in real- time.
  • Integrate with third-party inventory systems

Even merchants with a single inventory source benefit from MSI with an inventory reservation system that tracks deductions from the salable product stock when customers add products to carts. This results in accurate quantity counts and high performing checkouts that improve conversion rates.

Improve your operations with Multi-Source Inventory

PWA STUDIO

Smartphone penetration is expected to reach 90% in 2019 with nearly three-quarters of consumers engaging in mobile shopping. Progressive Web Apps (PWA) enable merchants to deliver superior mobile experiences that boost conversion rates and increase engagement. PWA Studio provides tools that will make it faster and cheaper to build Magento-powered PWA experiences.

With PWA studio, merchants can deliver app-like mobile commerce that is fast, integrated, and reliable. These experiences are proven to improve SEO and to drive 50% higher conversion rates, and 50% better page performance on average. Designed with the developer in mind using reference themes, guided development, and open web standards, PWA Studio also speeds time to market and lowers the total cost of ownership.

As an open source initiative, PWA Studio will have regular updates—independent of Magento releases—rapidly adding new features, reference theme enhancements, and quality improvements. With developers and partners already building PWAs we are excited about the future of front-end development on Magento. For information on how to work with PWA Studio and visibility into our roadmap visit pwastudio.io.

PAGE BUILDER

Gone are the days of creating pages and managing site content using HTML and CSS. Available for Magento Commerce, Page Builder introduces an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface; a powerful set of content types like images, videos, and banners; and instant preview capabilities that enable non-technical users to take control of their content. Now you can create new pages, enrich products and categories, and launch content updates quickly and easily without the help of a front-end web developer.

A flexible grid system allows you to position page elements in a highly customizable way and in-context text editing streamlines the whole process. The appearance and behavior of content types can be quickly tuned to accommodate any design.

Page Builder is fully integrated with existing Magento functionality such as media gallery and widgets so you can incorporate these assets into your pages. You can also use Page Builder to create dynamic content blocks used throughout your site, and you can schedule content to go live in the future with content staging and preview.

Page Builder currently has limited availability for our Early Adopter Program. Page Builder will be Generally Available for all Magento Commerce customers as part of the upcoming Magento 2.4.0.1 release.

ADDITIONAL UPDATES

In addition to these new features included with the latest release, Magento 2.4.0.0 delivers updates and enhancements across the entire platform:

  • Magento Shipping – Added support for new fulfillment options and expanded global availability.
  • GraphQL – a flexible and performant storefront API with rich developer tooling that is integrated into the Magento API ecosystem. Developers will be able to more easily query specific data elements from APIs in a single request. GraphQL’s focused responses provide faster and more predictable presentation results, even on slow networks.
  • Asynchronous & Bulk Web APIs – new scalable APIs enable better control over the timing and execution visibility of API calls, at greater volume, and without waiting for all previous operations to complete, all of which allow for faster performance.
  • Declarative schema – Ease the upgrade and installation process by allowing developers to declare the final desired state of the database and have the system adjust to it automatically, without performing redundant operations.
  • Improved indexing performance – Sharding and parallel processing of indexers reduces indexation times by over 60% to support larger sites and quicker product updates.
  • New security tools – Help further secure your stores and prevent fake logins with Google ReCAPTCHA and Two Factor Authentication.

What's New in Magento 2.4.0?

Highlights

Look for the following highlights in this release:

Substantial security enhancements

This release includes over 30 security fixes and platform security improvements.

Over 30 security enhancements that help close remote code execution (RCE) and cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities

No confirmed attacks related to these issues have occurred to date. However, certain vulnerabilities can potentially be exploited to access customer information or take over administrator sessions. Most of these issues require that an attacker first obtains access to the Admin. As a result, we remind you to take all necessary steps to protect your Admin, including but not limited to these efforts: IP allowlisting, two-factor authentication, use of a VPN, the use of a unique location rather than /admin, and good password hygiene.

Additional security enhancements

  • Implementation of 2FA for Admin accounts, Magento.com user accounts, and Cloud SSH access
    • Securing your Magento Admin account. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is now required for the Magento Admin. Admin users must first configure their 2FA before logging into the Admin through either the UI or a web API. 2FA is enabled by default and cannot be disabled. This extra step of authentication makes it harder for malicious users to log in to the Admin without authorization.
    • Securing your Magento account. Two-factor Authentication (2FA) provides an added, optional layer of security to better protect your Magento.com account from unauthorized users who might want to use your account in ways you do not want.
  • Securing Cloud SSH access. Magento Commerce Cloud provides multi-factor authentication (MFA) enforcement to manage authentication requirements for SSH access to Cloud environments. Multi-factor authentication for 2FA is not enabled by default on a project. Magento highly recommends enabling this feature. Contact Support for assistance.
  • Template filter strict mode is now enabled by default. Magento components (including CMS pages and blocks) that use the template filter in legacy mode can be vulnerable to remote code execution (RCE). Enabling strict mode by default ensures that RCE attacks cannot be deliberately enabled.
  • Data rendering for UI data providers is now disabled by default. This removes an opportunity for malicious users to execute arbitrary JavaScript.
  • New \Magento\Framework\Escaper class. This class is provided for .phtml templates and the PHP classes that are responsible for generating HTML. This class contains HTML sanitization methods relevant to multiple contexts. The $escaper local variable is available inside .phtml templates and should be used instead of the deprecated $block->escape{method}. Use $escaper rather than $block as the use of $block->escape{method} has been deprecated.
  • Support for new security.txt file. This file is an industry-standard file on the server that helps security researchers report potential security issues to site administrators.

Starting with the release of Magento Commerce 2.3.2, Magento will assign and publish indexed Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) numbers with each security bug reported to us by external parties. This allows users of Magento Commerce to more easily identify unaddressed vulnerabilities in their deployment. You can learn more about CVE identifiers at CVE.

Platform upgrades

The following platform upgrades help enhance website security and performance. Supported versions of PHP and PHPUnit, Elasticsearch, MySQL, and other dependencies are listed in Magento 2.4 technology stack requirements.

  • PHP 7.4 support introduced and PHP 7.1 and 7.2 deprecated. Magento 2.4.0 introduces support for PHP 7.4.
  • Support for PHPUnit 9.x and deprecation of PHPUnit 6.5. PHP 7.4 requires the use of the latest PHPUnit testing framework, which is PHPUnit 9.x. Magento Marketplace extension vendors must confirm that all new extension versions are compatible with PHP 7.4 and that all unit and integration tests have been configured to be run with PHPUnit 9.
  • Elasticsearch 7.6.x support. Elasticsearch 7.6.x is now the default catalog search engine for Magento Commerce and Open Source. You cannot install or upgrade to Magento 2.4.0 without also installing Elasticsearch 7.6.x. Elasticsearch version 2.x code has been removed. Elasticsearch versions 5.x and 6.x have been deprecated and are no longer supported.
  • MySQL 8.0 support. Magento 2.4.x supports MySQL 8.x. (Magento 2.4.0 was tested with MySQL 8.0.20.) Merchants are encouraged to migrate their deployments to MySQL 8.x to take advantage of its improved performance, security, and reliability. Although MySQL 5.7 is still supported for Magento 2.4.x, MySQL 5.6 is no longer supported. You cannot host Magento 2.4.x with a MySQL 5.6 database.
  • Removal of the MySQL catalog search engine. The MySQL search engine has been removed from Magento 2.4.0 and replaced as the default search engine with Elasticsearch. Elasticsearch provides superior search capabilities as well as catalog performance optimizations. All merchants must have Elasticsearch to install and deploy Magento 2.4.0.
  • MariaDB 10.4 support. Support for MySQL 8.0 provides the opportunity for merchants to deploy MariaDB 10.4 with Magento. Although merchants can still use MariaDB 10.2 with Magento 2.4.0, we recommend upgrading to MariaDB 10.4 for improved performance and reliability. MariaDB 10.0 and 10.1 are no longer supported (as a result of removing support for MySQL 5.6 in this release).
  • Migration of dependencies on Zend Framework to the Laminas project to reflect the transitioning of Zend Framework to the Linux Foundation’s Laminas Project. Zend Framework has been deprecated.
  • Decomposition of Magento Controllers allows extension developers to implement ActionInterface directly without “layer supertype” classes. Enhancement started by Vinai Kopp in pull request 16268 and finalized by Lukasz Bajsarowicz in pull request 26778. GitHub-9582
  • Removal of the core integration of the Signifyd fraud protection code. This core feature is no longer supported. Merchants should migrate to the Signifyd Fraud & Chargeback Protection extension that is available on the Magento Marketplace.
  • The core Braintree module has been removed from the code base. The Braintree Payments module now provides the same feature set.

Infrastructure improvements

This release contains enhancements to core quality, which improve the quality of the Framework and these modules: Customer Account, Catalog, CMS, Import, Cart and Checkout, and B2B.

  • Removal of core integration of third-party payment methods. With this release, the Authorize.Net payment method integration has been removed from core code. Merchants should migrate to the official extension that is available on the Magento Marketplace.
  • Support for partial-word search for Elasticsearch (new default search engine). Elasticsearch now supports the use of partial words in search terms for product names and SKUs when using quick search. This capability was supported by the MySQL search engine, which has been deprecated and replaced by Elasticsearch in this release.
  • PayPal JavaScript SDK upgrade. We’ve migrated the PayPal Express Checkout integration to the latest PayPal JavaScript SDK, an SDK that automatically collects and passes needed risk parameters to PayPal. The behavior of the PayPal Express Checkout payment method remains unchanged. However, upgrading this SDK to the latest version let merchants access the latest features and security enhancements.
  • Deprecation and removal of the Web Set Up Wizard. You must use the command line to install or upgrade Magento 2.4.0.
  • Composer update plugin. Composer plugin streamlines the upgrade process by resolving changes that must be made to the root project composer.json file before updating to a new Magento product requirement. This plug-in protects against overwriting customizations.
  • Seller-assisted shopping. This feature allows merchants to view the storefront on behalf of their customers. Customers opt to allow storefront access to their accounts. This community-developed feature includes an original extension developed by MAGEFAN. Features include:
    • ACL to control which administrators can log in to customer accounts can be configured on a per-website basis
    • Compatibility with multiple websites and customer account scopes
    • Orders placed on behalf of customers are logged in the storefront and Admin
    • All sessions are destroyed following administrator logout, and administrators cannot access customer passwords.

Performance improvements

  • Improvements to customer data section invalidation logic. This release introduces a new way of invalidating all customer sections data that avoids a known issue with local storage when custom sections.xml invalidations are active. (Previously, private content (local storage) was not correctly populated when you had a custom etc/frontend/sections.xml with action invalidations.)
    • Decrease in the size of network data transfers between Redis and Magento
    • Reduction in Redis’ consumption of CPU cycles by improving the adapter’s ability to automatically determine what needs to be loaded
    • Reduction in race conditions on Redis write operationsMultiple optimizations to Redis performance. The enhancements minimize the number of queries to Redis that are performed on each Magento request. These optimizations include:
  • Improved caching of results of SQL queries to inventory tables. These enhancements include:
    • Caching of SQL queries to the inventory_stock_sales_channel table (1 query instead of 16)
    • Caching of result of queries to the inventory_stock table (1 query instead of 16)
  • Improvement of up to 25-30% to Quick Order add-to-cart performance.
  • Merchants can now use lazy loading to load images.

Adobe Stock Integration v2.0

Ability to license stock image previews from the Media Gallery. Merchants can now find any Adobe Stock preview image in the Media Gallery, which reduces the number of steps required to license stock preview image.

This replacement for the former Media Gallery offers a new, searchable interface for Magento media assets. Administrators can now search, filter, and sort images up to 30x faster than they could in the earlier version of this feature. Merchants can use this tool to evaluate storefront image usage. Extension developers should be aware that extensions that were developed for the Media Gallery will not work as expected with the new Media Gallery.

Inventory Management

Inventory Management enhancements for this release include support for in-store pickup and bundle product support.

GraphQL

GraphQL enhancements include:

  • pickupLocations query supports the Inventory In-store pickup feature
  • categories query returns a list of categories that match a specified filter. This query differs from the categoryList query in that it supports pagination.
  • reorderItems mutation allows a logged-in user to add all the products from a previous order into their cart.

  • schema updates for test entities
