Security is a very important issue relating to information and data, especially on the internet.
If you own a website, there are two different but connected reasons for this:
- You want to protect your own data (applications, codes, databases, etc.)
- You want to protect your customer data and information
Protecting valuable customers
If you sell products or services online or send out a subscribable online newsletter, those customers entrust valuable information to you that is not meant for anyone else – such as credit card numbers or e-mail addresses. They will do that only if they know that such information is 100 percent secure with you.
Can you guarantee that to your customers with a clear conscience?
Yes, you can, if your website is hosted by a provider operating its servers in Switzerland. For one thing, Switzerland is a safe country, politically stable, and economically independent. Second, we unfailingly protect data. A hosting provider cannot be forced to disclose information – except when authorities investigate a client and are able to obtain an injunction. Last but not least, the infrastructure is newer, better maintained, and better protected than anywhere else. To have your website hosted in Switzerland is worth it – don’t try to save money in the wrong place.
The Hostpoint servers are located in Glattbrugg, at the high security data center Interxion. Guards patrol around the clock, and access is restricted and granted only to authorized persons with a keycard and by fingerprint identification. This is a place where data and information are extremely well protected – from attacks originating on the internet too. Some Swiss banks operate parts of their infrastructure at the same, 4,000 square meter, data center.
