------

Als grösster Schweizer Webhosting Provider betreut Hostpoint 130’000 Webseiten und 150'000 Domainnamen und bietet alle Dienstleistungen rund um das Hosting von Webseiten und Applikationen an.

Gute Dinge sind einfach: die Liebe, das Essen – und die Geschäftsidee, mit der Hostpoint 2001 den Markt revolutionierte: Webhosting für jedermann! Heute betreut das Unternehmen, seit 2005 eine Aktiengesellschaft, in Rapperswil-Jona mit 30 Mitarbeitenden 130'000 Webseiten und 150'000 Domainnamen. In der Kundenliste finden sich bekannte Firmen wie Schweizerische Post, Migros, Phonak,

Diners Club oder Hero und illustre Persönlichkeiten wie Alex Frei oder Chris von Rohr. Das Fundament sind aber die vielen privaten Kunden. Das Jahr 2010 war für den grössten Schweizer Webhosting Provider mit 8 Millionen Franken Umsatz ein Rekordjahr – das vorläufig letzte Kapitel in der Erfolgsgeschichte von Hostpoint.
VISION UND WERTE

Hostpoint ist mehr als einfach nur gewinnorientiert. Wir denken zukunftsorientiert und investieren unseren wirtschaftlichen Erfolg in neue Technologien und Innovationen. Davon profitieren unsere Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter, weil wir sie laufend aus- und weiterbilden, damit sie unseren Kunden noch schneller und noch kompetenter helfen können. So schaffen wir die Voraussetzungen,

um unseren Kunden den bestmöglichen Service zu bieten und mit uns zu wachsen. Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft sind für uns selbstverständlich. Nicht nur unseren Kunden gegenüber. Deshalb fördern wir auch das Arbeitsklima in der Firma gezielt.

MODERNSTE INFRASTRUKTUR

Im Mittelpunkt unserer Services steht die Webhosting-Plattform. Sie garantiert unseren Kunden die höchstmögliche Leistungsfähigkeit und Verfügbarkeit. Deshalb setzen wir ausschliesslich auf hochwertige Hard- und Software führender Hersteller und kombinieren diese mit unserem selber entwickelten Control Panel.

UNSER WEBHOSTING
Als wir unsere Infrastruktur (Hardware und Software) konzipierten, achteten wir von Anfang an darauf, eine redundante und skalierbare Lösung zu entwickeln, auf der Hunderttausende Webseiten und Applikationen laufen. Deshalb haben wir auf unserer hochleistungsfähigen, selber entwickelten Webhosting-
Plattform beispielsweise alle Dienste (Web-, MySQL-, Mail-, Backup- und Administrations-Server inklusive Spam- und Virenscanner) getrennt, damit sie sich nicht die Ressourcen streitig machen. Dank dieser Trennung und dem Einsatz von Load-Balancing-Systemen für besonders lastintensive Dienste wie E-Mail ist die Leistung unserer Webserver
überdurchschnittlich hoch. Wir investieren Jahr für Jahr einige Millionen Franken in den Ausbau unserer Webhosting-Plattform und entwickeln unsere Software weiter, um den steigenden Ansprüchen unserer Kunden gerecht zu werden. Alle Server befinden sich in einem der sichersten Data Center der Schweiz, bei Interxion in Glattbrugg bei Zürich.
Sämtliche Kundendaten werden redundant in zwei unabhängigen getrennten Brandschutzzonen gespeichert.

HÖCHSTE SICHERHEITSSTANDARDS
Die komplette Hostpoint-Infrastruktur steht im Interxion Data Center in Glattbrugg bei Zürich. Alle Systeme sind redundant in zwei unterschiedlichen und getrennten Brandschutzzonen aufgebaut. Dieses Hochsicherheits-rechenzentrum bietet eine flexible und skalierbare Grundlage
für den ausfallsicheren und kosteneffektiven Betrieb unserer Informations-, Kommunikations- und Internetinfrastruktur. Interxion ist nach der international anerkannten Norm ISO 27001 für Informationssicherheits-Managementsysteme zertifiziert und erfüllt die FINMA-Richtlinien 99/2 für Banken Data Center.

SELBER ENTWICKELTE SOFTWARE
Unsere selber entwickelte Software steuert alle Webhosting-Angebote. Dank der langjährigen Erfahrung und dem grossen Know-how unserer Entwicklerinnen und Entwickler bieten wir unseren Kunden die modernsten Webhosting-Lösungen. Das Hostpoint Control Panel ist ein einfaches, aber leistungsfähiges Administrationsinterface, um
Webhosting-Accounts zu verwalten. Weil wir die Software selber entwickeln, können wir einerseits das wertvolle Feedback unserer Kunden einfliessen lassen und andererseits schneller reagieren, wenn ausnahmsweise etwas nicht laufen sollte wie gewohnt. Das verkürzt auch die Zeit für die Einführung neuer Features erheblich.

INTELLIGENTE LASTVERTEILUNG
Auf unserer hochleistungsfähigen Webhosting-Plattform sind sämtliche Dienste voneinander getrennt und können sich keine Ressourcen streitig machen. Das heisst, dass Web-, Datenbanken-, Mail-, Backup-, Administrations- und andere Dienste sich nicht
dieselben Server beziehungsweise Server-Cluster teilen. Bei sehr lastintensiven Diensten wie E-Mail, Open-Xchange oder Hostpoint Control Panel setzen wir ausserdem sogenannte Load-Balancing-Systeme zum Lastausgleich ein.

MAXIMALE PERFORMANCE
Die Trennung aller Dienste und der Einsatz von Load-Balancing-Systemen bei besonders last-intensiven Diensten optimieren und maximieren die Leistungsfähigkeit unserer Webhosting-Plattform. Ausserdem haben wir noch einige Applikationen
entwickelt, die wichtige Applikationen wie PHP oder MySQL zusätzlich beschleunigen.

DATEN- UND AUSFALLSICHERHEIT
Unsere Storage-Cluster-Lösung besteht aus eigenständigen Clustern, die über ein schnelles internes Netzwerk mit allen Web-, Mail- und Administrationsservern verbunden sind. Die Cluster speichern alle Kundendaten auf externen Diskarrays und spiegeln sie gleichzeitig in einem
anderen Raum (getrennte Brandschutzzone). Die Diskarrays sind ebenfalls redundant ausgelegt, sodass niemals Daten verloren gehen, selbst wenn eine einzelne Disk oder ein ganzer Diskarray ausfallen sollte. Das garantiert die grösstmögliche Daten- und Ausfallsicherheit.

IMMER ONLINE
Hostpoint betreibt ein eigenes Netzwerk. Beim Aufbau haben wir viel Wert auf Redundanz, Stabilität und Geschwindigkeit gelegt. Das Netzwerk ist über zwei leistungsstarke Cisco-Router, die über je eine Verbindung mit zwei separaten Carriern und Peering-Partnern verfügen, mit dem Internet verbunden. Dieser Aufbau
heisst «Multihoming». Selbst wenn ein Router ausfallen sollte, ist das Hostpoint-Netzwerk unterbruchsfrei über den zweiten Router erreichbar. Falls die Verbindung zu einem Carrier unterbrochen wird, können beide Router Daten über den anderen Carrier umleiten.

All good things are simple: – like love, good food and the business idea with which Hostpoint entered the market in 2001: Web hosting for everyone! Today with its 30 members of staff, the company based in Rapperswil-Jona, which went public in 2005, hosts 130,000 websites and 150,000 domains. Its clientele includes established businesses such as Swiss Post, Migros, Phonak, Diners Club and

Hero as well as illustrious personalities such as Alex Frei and Chris von Rohr. Our foundations however are built on our many private customers. 2010 was a record year for Switzerland’s largest webhosting provider with 8 million francs in sales – Hostpoint’s most recent chapter in its success story.
VISIONS AND VALUES

Hostpoint is more than just a profit-oriented company. Hostpoint endeavors to think in terms of the future and to invest in new technologies and innovations for the sake of economic success. Our staff directly benefits from this as we continuously train them to provide their specialist knowledge to our customers faster and with even more competence.

That way, we create the conditions that allow us to offer all of our customers the best-possible service to grow successfully. Friendliness and a helping hand are our daily bread - and not just when it comes to our customers. We also promote a working environment based on these very same principles.

STATE-OF-THE-ART INFRASTRUCTURE

The web hosting platform is positioned at the center of our services. It guarantees our customers the highest possible performance and availability. This is why we only make use of high-quality hardware and software from leading manufacturers and combine them with our own Control Panel.

OUR WEB HOSTING
When we designed our hardware and software infrastructure we made sure from the very start to develop a redundant and scalable solution that would be able to cater to hundreds of thousands of websites and applications. To prevent any resources from interfering with one another, we separated all services (Web-, MySQL-, mail-, backup- and
and administration servers incl. spam and virus scanners) from our high-performance, self-developed webhosting platform. Thanks to this separation and the use of load-balancing systems for particularly load-critical services such as e-mail, the performance of our web servers is particularly high. Every year, we invest millions of francs into the expansion of our
web hosting platform and continue to develop our software in order to meet the ever-increasing demands of our customer base. All of our servers are located in the safest data center in Switzerland, at Interxion in Glattbrugg near Zurich. All customer data is stored redundantly in two independent locations each protected by physical firewalls.

HIGHEST SECURITY STANDARDS
The entire Hostpoint infrastructure is located at the Interxion Data Center in Glattbrugg near Zurich. All systems are set up redundantly in two independent locations each protected by physical firewalls. This high-security computer center offers a flexible and scalable foundation for the failsafe and cost-effective operation of our
information, communication and Internet infrastructure. Interxion is certified in accordance with the internationally recognized ISO 27001 standard for information security management systems and complies with the FINMA guidelines 99/2 for bank data centers.

SELF-ENGINEERED SOFTWARE
Our self-engineered software controls all web hosting products. Thanks to the many years of experience of our development team and their extensive know-how, we are able to offer our customers state-of-the-art web hosting solutions. The Hostpoint Control Panel is a simple but powerful administration interface
to manage web hosting accounts. As we develop our software ourselves, we can include the valuable feedback from our customers in the software, and we can respond quickly if for some reason something is not working as it should. This also considerably reduces time needed to implement new features.

INTELLIGENT LOAD BALANCING
On our high-performance web hosting platform, we have separated all services so that no resources interfere with the other. This means that web-, database, mail-, backup-, administration services and others do not have to share the same server or server
cluster. For very load-intensive services such as email, Open Xchange or Control Panel, we also use so-called load balancing systems to evenly distribute the workload.

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE
The separation of all services and the use of load-balancing systems for particularly load-critical services optimizes and maximizes the performance of our web hosting platform. We have also developed some other in-house applications that accelerate
significant applications such as PHP and MySQL.

DATA SECURITY AND FAILURE SECURITY
Our storage cluster solution consists of independent clusters connected via a fast internal network to all web-, mail- and administration servers. The clusters store all customer data in external disk arrays and mirror this data simultaneously to another room (firewall protected). The disk arrays
have also been set up redundantly so that data can never be lost – even if individual disks or an entire disk array should happen to fail. This guarantees the high-possible degree of data and failure security.

ALWAYS ONLINE
Hostpoint operates its own network. During the establishment of our network, we mainly focused on its redundancy, stability and speed. The network is connected with the Internet via two high-performance Cisco routers, each with a connection to two separate carriers and peering partners. This structure is known as
“multihoming”. Even if one router should happen to fail, the Hostpoint network can still be reached via the second router without any interruption whatsoever. Should the connection to one of the carriers fail, both routers can be rerouted to the other carrier.

Hostpoint is sucks!
This hosting is the worst ever I have been. Since I moved my sites there I have been experiencing problems, one after another. Few months ago they decided to update to php 5.3, althought some of my sites support php v 5.3, they didnt work anymore after this upgrade. Search on internet before you plan on using hostpoint...there are bad review of them everywere!
Dear gaminch, with regards to your post on the experience you've had with our hosting service, we would really appreciate it if you could contact us directly to clarify the situation. We apologize for any inconvenience you might have experienced. It is important for us to understand your concerns and learn from them. Our contact details can be found here: http://www.hostpoint.ch/en/hostpoint/contact.html.
