One.com is what I use for hosting my .ch site, but as I'm a non-techie gal I used weebly.com's website templates.
I second this. I have used them for more than 20+ domains the last 10 years or so and without any problems at all.

Extra bonus is that when you sign up from a Swiss IP (or maybe anything but Danish) they subtract almost everything on the invoice for the first year so you can get up and running for less than CHF20 for the full first year incl. server space, domain, setup etc.

Hard to beat really.

Re: Website Domain Registration / Hosting Recommendations

Hi all, after a lot of searching, I simply went with the Swiss government's url registration website: www.switchplus.ch, costing 17 chf.

As soon as it's set up, I'll transfer my new domain name to www.34sp.com (my favourite web hosting company - REALLY good at customer support, winning loads of awards in the uk). I didn't buy the url with 34sp as it costs 52 pounds to do so!

Anyway, a sneaky way to save some money.

Re: Website Domain Registration / Hosting Recommendations

I know it's a very old topic, but I don't want to start a new one.

I have read through the suggestions for domain registration and hosting and I have actually shortlisted 2 candidates based on few recommendations:
https://www.metanet.ch
https://www.one.com

Both can register domains with ".ch" and both offer hosting services.

Price comparison:
Hosting per month: 6.70CHF (Metanet 50GB) vs. 2CHF (One 100GB)
Domain per year: 10.75CHF (Metanet) vs. 17.75CHF (One - 3mths for FREE)

Can anyone recommend/advise what should I take a look at while deciding on one or the other? One advantage is that "one.com" supports various languages whereas Metanet is only in German.

I have used Metanet for some years for my web site.
Always worked well, good service and response times.
You can set the Admin to English!

Edit
Depends what you plan to do.
For a commercial web site it is important pages load in under 2 seconds

Many of my pages load in under one second!

For private use maybe 4 or 5 seconds or more is OK?

Re: Website Domain Registration / Hosting Recommendations

Thanks Marton. Indeed the time of response is crucial as I want to set up an online store, so waiting up to 5 seconds for any action can be sometimes a win/lose thing.

Metanet also support SSL certificates which is useful for a commercial site.


I have no experience of one.com so do not take my comments as a criticism of them.
