Hostpoint continues to activate domains on cue
03.02.2009 - SWITCH, the administrator of Internet domains in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, will in future only activate domains once payment is received. Hosting provider Hostpoint, which can also register domains, will continue to activate them immediately.
From March 1 it may take several days before you can use your new domain after you have registered with SWITCH because the largest administrator of domain names will only activate them after the entire bill has been settled, as per the new SWITCH registration contract.
While subscribers who pay by credit card or Paypal will not be affected, those who pay by invoice may have a wait of up to ten days between registration and activation.
Hosting provider Hostpoint is not following this procedure. Anyone registering their domain with Switzerland’s largest provider can use it straight away and pay later.
Sandro Bertschinger, CFO of Hostpoint: “We aim to provide our customers with simple and friendly hosting. Which is why you can register your domain with us and get it online in no time at all. Our experience with this method is good and we no reason to change payment modalities.”
