Web hosting

When you create your own website, you need to rent storage space for your website content. Web hosting from Swisscom gives you the option of storing your website data securely in our Swiss data centre.

Note: Websites created with the HomepageTool cannot be switched to another hosting provider.






My website

Content

Content cannot be automatically transferred from an existing website. However, you can use the copy and paste function to move existing content such as text and images to the HomepageTool quickly and easily.

You can only create one website per HomepageTool and one independent mobile website, depending on the package. You can order and use as many HomepageTools as you like but only one HomepageTool add-on is possible per web hosting. It is also possible to run other websites under other domains or subdomains.

Backing up

To create a backup, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the HomepageTool and click on "Settings” on the left-hand side.
  2. This opens the “General” menu. Scroll right to the end and click on the button “Backup and recovery”.
  3. You can create a new backup here or recover an old version.

Backup of your hosting environment

To recover a full back-up of your hosting environment - or for other technical support - please contact Support.
Note: There may be a charge for this service.


Want to stop managing your own website?

Our subsidiary localsearch specialises in creating and running sophisticated websites. It would be happy to take over your website and manage the hosting for you in the future. If you have already created a website with the HomepageTool, you can enjoy this service at a reduced price.
