Hello razuriland,

Yes, our servers can support Magento installations and fit all qualifications to do so. However, please note that Magento does tend to be a high usage ecommerce program compared to others and it does use a high amount of resources. This can result in the account being suspended if its resource usage is not properly monitored by you. Implementing as many caching and resource saving methods as possible is advised.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
