The success of our customers is what drives us

From the very start, nine.ch has always strived to be on the cutting edge of technology. In 2004, for example, nine.ch was the first provider to bring dedicated servers to Switzerland. In 2013, nine.ch became the first technology partner of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Switzerland and took on the management and operation of all websites and app APIs of the NZZ Media Group – entirely in the Amazon Cloud.

The professional customer support is the second pillar of success at nine.ch. The fact that nine.ch was founded by two passionate tech specialists ensured from day one that customer enquiries would only be answered by experts.

The third pillar of nine.ch has always been high availability with 24/7 operation and fast Internet connectivity. Thanks to the redundant 10 Gbps backbone, round-the-clock availability of customer servers is guaranteed, which is especially important for business-critical websites and APIs.

History

The history of nine.ch began in 1999 when Thomas Hug and Philipp Koch registered the domain and began offering web hosting services. In 2002, they founded Nine Internet Solutions AG.

nine.ch. grew rapidly as a result of its technological leadership. Turnover increased considerably each year and now exceeds CHF 6 million.

After more than 15 years, nine.ch has become the leading Swiss provider of managed Linux servers, and the company is still run by its two founders.
