Hostpoint launches flexible managed server solution for SMEs and web agencies
Hostpoint has launched a managed server solution that will guarantee Swiss SMEs greater flexibility in managing their online presence, an optimized infrastructure for integrating new technologies, and maximum website stability and availability. The Managed Flex Server is based on OpenStack and is compatible with the most common content management systems and developer platforms - a basic requirement for web agencies and developers.
Today's websites for SMEs are far more than virtual business cards. In many of today's industries, business is solely web-based, meaning the website is the central sales channel and platform for interacting with customers. The technical infrastructure, which has to be kept up to date for customer-centric online functions like e-commerce and improved request and order processing tools, is becoming more complex all the time. Managing servers, platforms and services is time-consuming and requires sound expertise.
Hostpoint's new OpenStack-based solution offers maximum flexibility and enables web agencies and developers to deploy new technologies effectively, all while ensuring high performance and availability. Hostpoint handles the management of the server landscape and the platform as well as operation of a range of services. Customers - from SMEs to web agencies - can focus on their core business knowing that Hostpoint is looking after their cloud infrastructure or root server.
Managed hosting and comprehensive support - made in Switzerland
Hostpoint's current web hosting services cover a wide spectrum of use cases. The range of options was greatly expanded with the Managed Flex Server packages, a complement to services for SMEs as well as web agencies and developers. The solution is fully integrated into Hostpoint's tried and tested infrastructure, located in Switzerland. All of the popular features are integrated into the Hostpoint Control Panel for efficient management and administration. The Managed Flex Server environment supports the most popular content management systems, such as WordPress, TYPO3, Neos, Drupal, Joomla and Magento. The integration of Redis and Memcached means you can optimize the
performance of many CMSs. Along with Apache, the Nginx web server is now available, with countless caching options and the option for clients to freely select the desired web server for each website. Should you wish to manage certain applications yourself, you can do so with Custom Service Control, which lets customers run their own services. Hostpoint is then able to stop and restart them cleanly when performing maintenance. This means you can run all applications yourself if they are written using one of the supported technologies, such as Java, Ruby, Node.js or Python.
Hostpoint's unrivaled Switzerland-based support is available to customers round-the-clock, 365 days a year - and with optional service level agreements and Platinum support you can enjoy even faster response times. Customers also benefit from hourly backups during the first 24 hours and backups stored for up to 180 days. Additional benefits include attractive pricing and full GDPR compliance.
Hostpoint Chief Product Officer Claudius Röllin explains: "Website availability is absolutely essential to the business success of SMEs in any industry. The technical infrastructure must deliver maximum stability so that the customers can find what they need and don't jump ship to go with a competitor. This is where our new service offers the perfect foundation and real added value. At the same time, technologies are rapidly evolving to offer even more customer-friendly features that have to be integrated quickly and easily. This is essential, especially in the case of web agencies and developers. Thanks to Custom Service Control, the customer has full flexibility and can run almost any application they like independently using the services we provide."
Hostpoint's Flex Server product is now available in five packages, depending on the scope of services required. You can find more information here:
