I recently became a member of WPMU DEV and I'm just starting out with my first WordPress site. So far I've only registered a domain name with Gandi. Have been checking my hosting options and I have a problem choosing the right one: was thinking of going either for Bluehost as it provides 1-click install and auto-updates of WordPress, or the Simple Hosting plan of Gandi, considering I already have a domain name with them.
The thing is my site will have an e-commerce side as well. I've been reading up on this and they say you need a dedicated IP address with SSL for an e-commerce site. My question is do I really need this for a simple e-commerce site?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
