fair prices, competent support, fast performance
M. Widmer,

I run a small publishing and printing company. With SecureRack, I outsourced my file and ERP servers into the cloud and gained space for my core business machines, so I could improve productivity and revenue.
I appreciate the... More fair prices, the good and competent support as well as the fast performance of servers and connection. Furthermore, all data remain in Switzerland which makes me capable of printing sensitive documents from financial institutes that underlay Swiss data protection law. Less
Excellent support

I'm a small business owner that needs a secure website, without any technical knowledge. A2hosting's service is excellent. I particularly like their security patches (if they spot updates needed that haven't been done, they a... More utomatically patch the site). Their support is also excellent - instead of referring me to mountains of documentation, they actually fix the problem. Wonderful. What every small business owner needs! Less

After completeing the changeover of all our processes onto a securerack VM, in less than 6 months we received an email from SR informing us that we have a couple of months to move to a new service because the service will be ... More discontinued. Not to mention the outages we experienced - which are never explained!
Here is the email:
Dear Sir or Madam
For strategic reasons, our company decided to retreat from cloud service. Therefore, our cloud services «SecureRack vDatacenter» will be terminated by March 31st, 2017.
Please make sure to backup or transfer your data to alternative servers by then. We recommend the comparison portal www.cloudorado.com which provides a vast overview of cloud service offers.
As from January 1st, 2017, it will no longer be possible to place new «SecureRack vDatacenter» orders. Existing services are still available free of charge until March 31st, 2017. We recommend you to transfer your data as soon as possible, as all data and servers will be deleted irrevocably on March 31st, 2017.
If you have any questions, please contact us by phone +41 44 512 88 88 or E-Mail info@securerack.com.
We thank you for your understanding.
Kind regards,
Your SecureRack team

Great job!! Why did they take our business if they knew they will be closing down the service? We had to re-pay the app developers and DB admins to move everything to google cloud - NOT CHEAP FOR A SMALL BUSINESS!

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
