Dedicated Hosting Provider with English Speaking Staff Needed

Hi All,

I'm looking for a Swiss dedicated server host who provides dedicated servers hosted/located on Swiss servers but also has its site translated into English or the option to review the entire site in English. I don't speak any other languages (unfortunately ) so need English-speaking tech and customer support and want to read the TOS/AUP/Privacy Policy, etc., in English.

The content I want to host on the servers is perfectly legal both here and in the US but is for well-known US clients (whose names I can't mention here; sorry!) and hosting the content on servers in the celebrity-obsessed US might lead to the stalkerazzi on a client's doorstep. Obviously, we can't have that so we decided to host in a country that still respects privacy and hacking email a la Sarah Palin or hosting accounts like has happened with other prominent US people is unlikely.

Can anyone recommend a good host or three?

Thanks.

Anya

Why do they have to be based in Switzerland again?

Thanks. I looked but didn't see dedicate servers. THAT wasn't clear; I'm looking for a dedicated server. I will keep this site in mind for hosting specific client sites for whom I need to maintain an entirely separate account.

Thank you; I appreciate your help. I'll contact them (in English of course) and see if they respond. If they meet our needs, I'll go from there.

It's hosted in Switzerland, cheap and pretty reliable. If you don't expect too much heavy weight on the service you wish to do

Re: Dedicated Hosting Provider with English Speaking Staff Needed

If your main concern is privacy and security I would recommend at least a dedicated virtual server or even a dedicated hardware server. Depends on your requirements and budget.
We provide IT and Network support as well as hosting for special needs. Please let me know some more details so I can give some advice.

best regards
Josef

Hi Anya, I've searched for the link but sorry I cant find it but the US and Switzerland recently signed an agreement with the US to cover the privacy issues that Switzerland enjoys if a Swiss resident hosts in the US.

If you find a hosting company that has signed up for this agreement you will enjoy the privacy that you seek plus the cost savings. Sorry I can not be of further use but your ISP (I use Swisscom) will be able to point you in the right direction and you wil be asble to find the assurances that you seek.

Good luck.
