Cyon is an outstanding web hosting provider from Switzerland that offers numerous advantages that are specially tailored to the needs of modern websites. Here are the main reasons why switching to Cyon would make sense for any website:

LiteSpeed Web Server

Cyon uses the LiteSpeed Web Server, which offers a number of advantages over traditional web servers such as Apache:

  • Higher speed: LiteSpeed can process significantly more requests per second, offering faster loading times and an improved user experience.
  • Efficient use of resources: LiteSpeed uses less CPU and memory, resulting in lower hardware costs and higher efficiency.
  • HTTP/3 support: LiteSpeed was the first web server to provide a production-ready implementation of the new HTTP/3 protocol, which enables faster and more secure data transfers.
  • Built-in DDoS protection measures: LiteSpeed offers comprehensive security features such as anti-DDoS protection and SSL acceleration.

Excellent performance and reliability

Cyon has made a name for itself through its outstanding performance and reliability:

  • Optimum resource utilization: Thanks to the efficient use of memory and CPU, fast loading times can be guaranteed even with high visitor numbers.
  • Scalability: LiteSpeed makes it possible to handle high traffic loads efficiently, which is particularly advantageous for highly frequented websites.

Compatibility and user-friendliness

Cyon offers high compatibility and a user-friendly environment:

  • Compatibility with existing Apache configurations: Switching to LiteSpeed requires no changes to existing Apache configurations, making the transition easy and seamless.
  • Integration with popular control panels: LiteSpeed is compatible with control panels such as cPanel, Plesk and DirectAdmin, which makes administration easier.
  • Easy migration: Switching from Apache to LiteSpeed can be done in a few minutes without downtime.

Environmental friendliness

Cyon operates its servers with 100% green energy from hydropower, which reduces the ecological footprint and contributes to a more sustainable hosting solution.

Excellent customer support

Cyon offers first-class support with personal attention, which is particularly helpful for solving technical problems quickly and efficiently. The support team is known for its friendliness and expertise.


After a thorough analysis of various leading web hosting providers in the EU, it is clear that no European provider fully matches Cyon’s combination of quality, performance and sustainability.

Here are the main points:

  • SiteGround offers outstanding speed, reliability and support and uses Google Cloud for enhanced security and performance. Despite these benefits, SiteGround falls short of Cyon’s extensive use of LiteSpeed servers and green energy(TechRadar)(Learn Digital Marketing).
  • 1&1 IONOS is known for its powerful data centers and extensive features such as SSD storage and DDoS protection. Although it’s a cost-effective solution, it lacks some of Cyon’s(HostAdvice) advanced technologies and eco-friendly practices(Learn Digital Marketing).
  • A2 Hosting offers high-quality performance with SSD storage and free website migrations. It also has a commitment to green energy, but the performance and efficiency of Cyon’s LiteSpeed servers are superior(HostAdvice)(Learn Digital Marketing).
  • Cloudways shines with managed cloud hosting and partners such as DigitalOcean and AWS. Their flexibility and performance are impressive, but they don’t offer integrated email hosting or domain registration like Cyon(TechRadar)(Start24).
  • Hostinger offers very affordable plans with LiteSpeed servers, but is better suited for small to medium sized websites and doesn’t match the overall quality and support of Cyon(Start24).

To summarize, Cyon's combination of LiteSpeed Web Server, 100% green energy and outstanding customer service is second to none. No EU provider offers comparable quality and sustainability. Therefore, Cyon remains the best choice for web hosting when these special features are crucial.

Because customers from the EU keep asking this question: Switzerland has a high level of data protection that is considered equivalent to that of the EU. This is confirmed by an adequacy decision of the European Commission, which states that Switzerland offers an adequate level of protection for personal data.


A personal conclusion after 5 years of working together.

Switching to Cyon brings considerable advantages in terms of performance, security, user-friendliness and environmental friendliness. The advanced features of the LiteSpeed Web Server and Cyon’s excellent service make this provider an excellent choice for any website.
