Fast WordPress hosting from the WP experts in Switzerland
With our "WordPress Speed Offer" we offer one of the fastest managed WordPress hosting solutions for Switzerland. In order to achieve this speed, we operate our own highly optimized WordPress server in a high-performance data center in Basel. We are not a reseller of any other hosting provider. You can find out how to create a fast WordPress website in our nextron Inside article.
Specialized WordPress hosting infrastructure
Our WordPress servers are based on 4.9 GhZ AMD CPUs and local NVMe SSD storage. We use the proven Ubuntu 18.04 LTS as the operating system. The powerful nginx or OpenLiteSpeed (OLS) are available as web servers. To ensure that the content can be retrieved without delay, we use server caching based on Fast-CGI, REDIS or LS-Cache. This includes both page and object caching. Additional caching plugins at WordPress level are not necessary. If you're targeting a global audience, we're happy to configure a free or paid CDN. This ensures that the website can also be called up very quickly from anywhere in the world.

What are the advantages of specialized WordPress hosting over standard website hosting?
With WordPress hosting, the server configuration and operation are optimized for WordPress. That means it can include additional PHP features, PHP versions, and even themes and plugins that make the website work more effectively. This means that you can enjoy improved performance, increased security and specialized WordPress support. Below are some of the benefits that you can expect when you choose specialized WordPress hosting from nextron:
- Speed: Our servers are designed for WordPress performance. Your server will be optimized for optimal WordPress performance and faster page loading times. Our systems are based on the fastest web servers Litespeed or nginx. Our servers are free of unnecessary ballast, compared to common all-rounder hosting platforms from Plesk or cpanel. For caching, we use the high-performance server caching technologies REDIS and LSCache.
Security: We monitor our systems around the clock. We use the latest anti-virus tools and periodically scan the entire website for vulnerabilities and infections. In addition, the website is secured with a firewall and real-time patching. In the event that a website is hacked, we will clean it up for you in the shortest possible time.
Predictable server utilization. This means that we can allocate resources better and solve technical problems more quickly.
Easy setup. Preconfigured settings enable tools such as SSL certificates or content delivery networks (CDNs) to be easily connected. You can use these tools with standard web hosting as well, but a few additional steps may be required.
Beginner friendliness. WordPress hosting comes with pre-installed WordPress software, automatic updates, and expert customer support.
We provide our PLUS customers with premium WordPress themes and WordPress plugins (SEO, multilingualism, search, image optimization) free of charge. If you had to purchase these plugins and themes individually, they usually cost more than the whole hosting.
Is nextron WordPress hosting really faster?
Practical example: Moving a website from a standard hoster to nextron's WordPress-optimized infrastructure
The website www.baustellen-webcams.ch (nextron's own project) was located on the infrastructure of M******, one of the largest Swiss providers, which is given number 1 in various hosting comparisons. We use this provider for various websites and this is considered to be a powerful hosting provider in Switzerland. We can't say anything negative about the provider either, the support and availability were impeccable. They're just a general host and not specialized in hosting WordPress. Since we have now built our own powerful WordPress hosting platform, we migrated this website to our infrastructure.
Loading times before the move
And here are the loading times after the move to nextron's powerful WordPress infrastructure. The loading times have almost halved solely due to the server change from 3.6 to 1.9 seconds.
