I really love this hosting company. As far as I am concerned, they are the best in Switzerland. They give you everything you need to set up a great site, and for prices that can't be beat. I also like that they try to use green energy, which is really important to me.

Easy to Create a Website

I love their site creation tools. It helped someone like me, who has no experience making websites, come up with a beautiful design quite quickly. They also have excellent prices on their normal hosting. I did see some other op...Read Moretions that were really expensive, but I am sure you get nicer features too. For basic hosting, which is all I need, this was a great deal.Less

Great for one domain only

3.6
Infomaniak is amazing when you have ONLY one website to host. If you DNS your domain, Infomaniak will charge you €1 for this, which is fine, but you won`t get separate email for next domain, only aliases. It makes no sense at all....Read More If you have 4 domains it means you must pay 4 x €90 per year (web + email hosting) which is €360/year!!! One can find VPS for this price with other providers or pay for Shared Hosting 5 years in advance or longer with unlimited add-on domains and emails for each domain separate (no aliases). I still like Infomaniak`s service and their simple admin panel (not cPanel). Support is also responsive, which is very important. Unfortunately, I seriously consider to come back to US based hosts. I`m not going to pay €360 or more per year only to enjoy email attached to each domain. Why offer 20 domains if one only can add alias emails along with it.Less

Expert Overview

Swiss Hosting Company

Infomaniak has been in business since 1994, which is quite old for an IT company.  It is owned by two Swiss founders and continues to be headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.  They own three data centers to house all their own servers, which gives them greater control than many web hosting companies can offer that only lease space.  The data centers are high quality and can meet all your needs.

In addition to normal hosting services they also offer website creation tools and services, mail hosting, server housing and more.  This helps ensure you are able to get all the IT services you need from one convenient location.

Uptime & Reliability

Very Stable Hosting

Since they own their own data centers they can control everything to do with the hosting.  This has helped them be able to ensure your sites are up and running at all times. They have redundant power and network connections, and their technical staff are on site to respond to issues quickly.  They also use quality hardware from Dell and Intel, along with solid state drives.  All of this helps to ensure that your site is up and running at all times.  When looking through what other users of this platform had to say, they were all very positive about the stability.

Features

Quality Hosting Options

You can choose from a number of hosting solutions including shared hosting that is quite fast and reliable.  The shared servers include 100 gigs of solid state drive, with the option to add additional disk space as needed.  They also provide SSL certificates for free. When you sign up with their WordPress hosting solution you will get 90 professional themes for free, which would normally cost you hundreds of dollars to have access too.  This alone makes them an excellent choice for those who are looking to start a WordPress site.

If you have your own server but you want to keep it in a high quality data center, the housing services are an excellent choice.  They will supply the power and network connection and you handle all the software side of it.  They can even provide hardware support should something go wrong. Of course, they also have dedicated servers that you can use with some very impressive server specs.

Support

Excellent Tech Support

The tech support from this company is quite responsive to your questions or issues.  They are not outsourced, which is a big advantage over many other companies.  Since they are right on site they can physically check for issues immediately when you report them.  They don't seem to have any type of documentation to help you learn more about hosting or running a site, which is unfortunate.  Overall, however, you should be quite happy with the service you get.

Pricing

Reasonable Pricing

The pricing with this company is quite reasonable.  While certainly not the cheapest hosting provider out there, they aren't the most expensive either.  You can start with shared hosting that begins at 5.75 Euro per month.  Cloud hosting starts at 29 Euro per month, and server housing starts at about 350 for an entire rack.  This is more for hosting companies that are just starting out and want to lease space in a high quality data center.

User Friendly

Everything is Straight Forward

Everything with this company is straight forward and easy to understand. Their site is in Swiss by default so make sure to keep that in mind.  Their technical support teams are on site in Switzerland so they can help you right away and they are committed to fast response times and clear answers when you have questions.

Summary

Great Hosting in Switzerland

If you are looking for hosting from a Swiss company, this is clearly one of the best.  They serve people throughout Europe with great quality hosting that will more than meet your expectations.  No matter what type of hosting services you need, they can help.

Pros:

  • High quality hardware
  • Reasonable Prices
  • Option for Server Housing

Cons:

  • No VPS solutions
