NovaTrend is a leading ISO 27001 certified Swiss web hosting provider with 15 years of continuous hosting experience. All customer accounts are hosted exclusively on NovaTrend’s own servers located in one of the most secure and modern data centers in Switzerland.
Apart from shared web hosting, this provider also offers reseller hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, domain registration, and SSL certificates.
NovaTrend’s website is available in English and German.
Features and Ease of Use
NovaTrend offers three shared hosting plans – Standard, Premium, and Speed – that come with no setup fee. These plans include:
- CloudLinux OS and LiteSpeed Server with HTTP/2
- cPanel control panel
- 10 GB to 200 GB storage space
- Unlimited traffic
- 10 Gbps bandwidth
- 1-4 CPU cores
- Unlimited parked domains and subdomains
- Shared SSL certificates
- Daily backups of all data
- 24/7 server monitoring
- DDoS protection
- Spam filter (for incoming and outgoing emails) and antivirus scanner
You’ll also get the Softaculous one-click app installer that comes with more than 400 scripts to install popular apps (such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla) right from the control panel.
The Premium and Speed plans provide additional features including the SiteBuilder that comes with 165 design templates and 32 content items, so you can create a website in three easy steps with no technical knowledge. The OX Groupware that is offered with the Premium and Speed plans simplifies and secures your business communications, and SSH access gives you complete control of your server.
In addition to the shared hosting packages, NovaTrend offers four reseller hosting plans, several virtual server plans, and two dedicated server plans.
NovaTrend uses SSD storage that is more reliable and faster than traditional HDD storage, and for virtual servers it offers an SLA-backed uptime guarantee that varies between 99.8% and 99.95%. This company’s data centers are also powered by 90% green electricity.
Pricing and Support
NovaTrend’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced, and you can pay for them in Swiss francs (CHF) via Visa, Mastercard, or PostFinance. There is a 30-day trial period on offer for hosting accounts, so you can try before you buy.
Customer support can be contacted by telephone (during working hours on weekdays), email, live chat, or ticket system (for existing customers). Paid remote support is also provided via AnyDesk. Since the live chat wasn’t available when I tried it, I sent a couple of queries via email which received rapid responses in less than thirty minutes.
For self-support, you will find that NovaTrend’s extensive knowledge base (with many tutorial-like posts) is pretty useful.
