About Basel

The city of Basel is located in Northern Switzerland, along the banks of the River Rhine. Basel spans over a small area of 22.75 km2 and is inhabited by 177,595 people (2018), making it the third-most populous region in Switzerland, after Zurich and Geneva. The greater metropolitan area has a population of 567,000 (source: macrotrends.net) and is divided into 19 ‘quartieres’ and districts, each of which is delegated legislative powers and oversees the administration of local services. It is a picturesque city of great cultural and historical importance.

Basel has excellent access to the central European markets, as it is located on the cornering borders of France and Germany. Switzerland declined membership into the European Union and uses the Swiss Franc (CHF) as its currency.

Basel Economy

Basel is among the top vibrant economy in Switzerland and is among the most innovative and productive cities in the world. Basel-Stadt employs more than 199,000 people from Switzerland as well as other nations.

Banking is central to the development of Basel’s economy. Many large banking institutions are located in the financial district, such as the UBS, Baumann & Cie, and E.Gutzwiller. Four large Swiss-owned insurance companies are also located in the city center and combined, and they employ a total of 10,000 people. Basel has the largest nominal GDP capita out of any city in Switzerland.

Switzerland’s pharmaceutical industry is based in and around the city of Basel, with over 45 research facilities and laboratories operating in the area. Many large pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies have chosen to have their headquarters in the city, such as Basilea Pharmaceutica, Novartis, Syngenta, Clariant, and Hoffmann-La Rouch. As a result, several critical chemical creations have been discovered in Basel, such as Valium, DDT, and LSD.

The tourism industry may not be as prominent as in cities such as Geneva; however, the picturesque scenery and architecture pull a steady stream of visitors to the city, most of whom originate from neighboring European countries. Like the rest of Switzerland, Basel has a low unemployment rate of around 4% (2018).

Basel Infrastructure

Basel is served by the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (BSL), located 6km northwest of the city center on French soil. It is unique because two airports jointly own it, and although it is located in France, an agreement allows people entering from Switzerland to have access to the border without any customs restrictions. The airport operates flights to around 50 European destinations, mainly Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. It handles 4.7 million passengers annually. A separate cargo terminal is a base for six cargo airlines transporting freight to the United Kingdom, Germany, and Kuala Lumpur.

Basel is a rail transportation hub, with three train lines crossing through the city: Basel SBB, Bale SNCF, and Basel Badischer Bahnhof. Local rail transport services are operated by Basel-Regional S-Bahn, which provides comfortable travel options in and around the city and the bordering countries of France and Germany.

Transport across the River Rhine is made possible by road travel over one of the five bridges. Frequent ferry services also run to and from both river banks and only use hydraulic power as an energy source. The public transportation system in Basel is also well maintained and operated, with an extensive network of trams and buses, which are mostly environmentally friendly and run on overhead power lines or natural gasses.

Basel Workforce

Basel has a strong, motivated, and highly skilled workforce, many foreign nationals based in the city. A small percentage of the labor force commute from France, Germany, and outer Swiss towns to work within the city of Basel. It is estimated that 150 different nationalities reside within Basel’s metropolitan area. A dialect of Swiss-German is the official language; however, English is widely spoken, and many Swiss nationals are multi-lingual.

The University of Basel is the oldest in the country. It was established in 1460 and has since grown into a modern and prestigious university considered one of the leading institutes in Switzerland. The university has seven faculties and specializes in Law, Business, Economics, and Medicine; it offers numerous undergraduate and post-graduate internationally accredited degree programs. More than 11,000 students currently study in the university. The international school of Basel (ISB) educates students up to the 12th grade and has over 1000 students (2021). Attending primary and secondary school is compulsory up to the age of 16; it is also accessible for Swiss nationals or the offspring of people who work in the country.

The high-quality educational institutes located in Basel, and the rest of the country, produce a proficient, highly trained workforce and a high national literacy rate of 99%. People in Switzerland are also highly self-motivated and work an average of 42.3 hours per week, which is some of the most extended working hours in Europe.

Business Costs

Basel has one of the most stable office rental and housing markets in Europe, which maintained strength throughout the global economic difficulties experienced in 2016. Rental costs for the Basel region are also lower than the larger cities of Zurich and Geneva, where costs are an average of $84.20 and $78.97 per square foot per annum, respectively.

Switzerland’s tax levels are dependent on what canton and municipality the business is located in; however, a flat federal tax rate applies to all areas in Switzerland. In 2019 there were several tax cuts across many communes to attract more foreign investment and wealthy ex-pats to the area. The corporate tax rates range from 10 – 25%, and charitable companies are exempt from paying any tax. The same applies to personal tax rates, whereby each municipality levies its tax rates; however, the rate will never exceed 40% of the total income earned.

There are no minimum wage rates set for Switzerland, but the average salary is higher than the average salary rates of most Western European countries.

Basel has a beneficial central European location, a well-developed infrastructure, and a skilled workforce, making it a stable base for international and foreign business.


Please mention as much information as you can and I will recommend the best suited WordPress maintenance plan.


WordPress Support Spezialist Basel – Why Do You Need It?

To keep your WordPress website performing well after its online publication, your website still needs to be managed and technically maintained. It is not prudent to just publish your website and walk away thinking “job-done”.

Search engines such as GoogleYahoo! and Bing are constantly evolving using artificial intelligence and changing their algorithms (the way they evaluate your website) to finely hone their users search experience. Therefore, properly managing and technically maintaining a website ensures it stays in tune with changing search engine technology and software environment.

After the publication of your website, I can continue to be the webmaster for your website, providing website technical support and carrying out any website maintenance required.

The WordPress Care Plans in Basel are renewable monthly or annually, and, depending on your specific case, it can include the renewal of hosting space and domain name, maintaining website security, monitoring website traffic, search engine re-submissions and tracking changes, as well as recovering your website in case of disaster.

Nowadays, many people simply forget to backup their enterprise website: Maybe the stress of running their business, the lack of knowledge or any other reasons.

Some of the bad scenarios when you need a site backup:

  • Hacked site recovery – In case you need to recover your business website very fast, and in the same way it was, you need a backup.
  • WordPress updates break your website – It happens. Every time you make a theme or plugin update, make sure you do a backup before. Most of the people put those updates on “auto” mode, meaning your WordPress site can go down while your potential clients are surfing on it. That’s bad!
  • Cheap hosting – One of the biggest problems with those cheap hosting providers ($1/month, $5/month, $15/month) with UNLIMITED traffic, UNLIMITED domains and other misleading offers may disappear after a few weeks you just bought their plan(s). Guess what?! Your website will disappear, too. In order to keep your website online, you need someone (person or software) to take care of it, and taking prompt action in case of any problems.

In any case, you need a fresh and well-structured backup of your website. But these WordPress site maintenance services aren’t only about backups. I also provide Security protection for your site and implement the last réglementation in matter of WordPress security. Your website is in safe hands and your enterprise will continue to prosper.

Why is WordPress website maintenance important?

WordPress is the most successful CMS (*content management system). Due to its heavy use worldwide, however, it is also a popular target for hackers. Similar to an operating system on the computer, WordPress must be updated regularly. Functionalities are expanded and security gaps are closed. Once regularly updated, WordPress is stable and secure. However, WordPress installations that are rarely updated or not updated at all are vulnerable and run the risk of being infected by malicious code.

I take care of all the necessary details to make your WordPress website more secure and regularly update the WordPress core system and all plugins used. In the first step, I carry out a basic check of your WordPress website. I check the WordPress core data, plugins and themes used. I check the performance and carry out the first security checks. Your system is checked for security gaps and for viruses, malware or Trojans. I am interested in the general condition of your website and the associated immunity of the system. As soon as the basis is right, all further work follows.

I keep your WordPress website up to date with regular updates

For the operation of a professional WordPress website, it is necessary to ensure regular updates of the system and the installed plugins and themes. Regular updates are the basic work for a safe and stable WordPress website. I carry out these essential tasks and constantly stabilize the immune system of your website. At the same time, we check the compatibility of the individual plugins and the functionality of the entire website after each update.

I create backups of your WordPress website

Your website is important to your business and often the focus of many marketing efforts. A successful website puts a lot of time and energy into it. This business area can be temporarily paralyzed by WordPress problems such as incompatible plugins or themes. This is not yet about hacker attacks or other infections. That’s why regular backups are the reinsurance of your website. Thanks to a WordPress backup, we can quickly restore normal operation of your website in an emergency. I take care of your WordPress security and create regular data backups on external servers and secure your business sustainably.

I check your WordPress website after each update

In addition to the necessary updates to the WordPress core version and the plugins used to keep your website stable and up-to-date, a subsequent check of your website for functionality is mandatory. Since plugins are offered by different developers and companies, incompatibilities can never be ruled out. Especially when using many plugins, the risk increases and problems can occur. Therefore, a function test of the website after each update should be routine. I offer you this routine and can also carry out an analysis of the plugins you use to determine whether they are necessary.
