The State of PrestaShop

PrestaShop is an open-source e-commerce platform that originated in France in 2005. PrestaShop supported over a dozen languages shortly after launch and has always had a strong focus on internationalization.

PrestaShop hosting is decentralized, so it is a little more difficult to identify all merchants using the platform. At present, we are aware of 166,614 live stores running on the PrestaShop platform.

Top-level Domain Distribution

Most PrestaShop stores use a .com domain. This is not surprising since alternate top-level domains have only recently been introduced and there is still a certain cachet associated with .com domains.

That said, you'll find stark regional differences in certain countries. In Australia, .com.au is the most common top-level domain. This is the exception however as .com domains dominate in virtually all other countries.
