Do you want to register that domain quickly? You can do this practically anywhere on the internet. But are all providers the same? You only find out how reputable and professional they are when you run into problems. If you opt for a provider that merely resells domains from another reseller, you may come up short.

A trusted hosting provider would have been the better choice. But even then, solving problems may take some time and try your patience.

Not so if your web hosting provider is Hostpoint. Hostpoint recently became the first web hosting provider in Switzerland to receive accreditation from Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) – the internet’s global government. And with good reason: we were screened down to the last detail, our finances were audited and even our organizational structure was closely scrutinized. With success: we are now proud to have the privilege of calling ourselves an ICANN-accredited registrar.

This also benefits our customers since the accreditation will now allow us to register domains directly and without any detours through intermediaries. Not only do we handle established domain endings like .com, .net, .org, .biz and .info, upcoming domain endings such as .jobs, .travel or .xxx are supported as well.

The direct processing via an ICANN-accredited provider like Hostpoint not only speeds up response times; it also improves security as it eliminates steps involving intermediaries in the future. And thanks to the comprehensive contractual framework between ICANN and accredited registrars, the customer enjoys a high degree of security. Moreover, Hostpoint is an ICANN-accredited registrar situated right in Switzerland and speaks the same languages as its customers. So really, there’s nothing that can go wrong.

He didn't find computers very interesting for quite some time. An Amiga 500 as a games machine was the high point at that time. Computers began to move into his focus with the advent of the internet and the possibility of building cool websites. In 2001, he crossed paths with an internet company by coincidence.
