Back to the roots

The fresh lime ...

The first fruit that comes to mind in terms of medicinal uses is the reliable lime. This sour citrus fruit can do what many advanced medicines cannot. Lime, bearing the scientific name Citrus Aurantifolia, has been used for ages in the treatment of various ailments.

This fruit arose from the server rooms of the computer science club of the University of Zurich (ICU), where Philip Iezzi worked as a system administrator during his studies in business informatics. It is the year 2000. Philip called his server "lime" and the citrus fruit was placed in the middle of a fruity server environment, next to banana and papaya. Every day, students were exchanging their files and only had to ask Philip: "Is it already on-lime?".

It was no big surprise when his fellow students gave Philip the domain onlime.ch as a birthday present back in 2003. The hosting was already born long time before, now it had a name.

... matures to a juicy fruit!

At the beginning of 2004, Philip Iezzi goes public with his company. Onlime GmbH has the goal to offer reliable and professional web hosting services - always on the cutting edge of technology and at affordable prices.

However Onlime GmbH will not intentionally keep up with the price dumping that takes place in the hosting market. A reliable service and a secured continuity take precedence.

Since 2006 Onlime GmbH runs its own server infrastructure at the data center of METANET in Zurich. The infrastructure is constantly being expanded and has now a high degree of redundancy.

As CRM and as control panel for its customers Onlime uses the in-house developed Airpane Controlpanel. Thanks to the high-quality server infrastructure, the convenient Control Panel and the sophisticated security architecture Onlime GmbH has acquired a high level of professionalism.
