X-TRONIX LTD (AG/SA) of Switzerland is a diversified technology supplier to academic and government research, corporate R&D and hi-tech industry. Our customers are in some 40 countries of Europe, the Americas, Asia, Middle East and South Africa. In addition, by proxy of our OEM private labeling activity we reach markets around the globe.
We primarily cater to the following fields of science and technology:
The company was founded in 1988, on the roots of years of prior experience in a variety of technology disciplines, including extended exposure to vacuum pumping techniques, thin film coating, MBE, surface science, ion implantation, helium leak detection, industrial process automation, precision test instruments, analytical and clinical instrumentation.
In addition to the more standard products we supplied customers throughout our many years serving science & technology, we have also delivered various custom-built components, instrumentation, coaters, gas blenders and vacuum exhaust and gas back-fill production systems; an important token of trust by our esteemed customers given the usually high value of such unique designs.
The website resides on a high performing hosted platform across multiple servers using a proprietary Dynamic Traffic Management powered through a DWDM Ethernet Backbone (an optical technology used to increase bandwidth over existing fiber optic backbones). SwissTronix Shared Hosting with Grid Technology are 4th Generation Hosting; secure cloud hosting that's lightning-fast, even during the biggest traffic spikes. This multi-server environment gives us the horsepower needed to keep site and email traffic operating at peak capacity.
The novelty in source code is one designed to resize and refactor down based on the size of the web browser parameters of the site when accessed via a tablet or smartphone of any brand and any operating system; a sort of 'intelligent sensor' that knows if the site is being accessed via a mobile device or a laptop / tabletop computer. We leverage the responsive extension for the Bootstrap framework to ensure that this will display appropriately in all devices. Whether a visitor is viewing it on a tablet, desktop or smart phone, the page will render this beautiful design -- sometimes hiding regions that are more glam and glitz than substance, for smartphone viewers.
Of course the site is cross-browser compatible!
Bootstrap supports a handful of media queries in a single file to help make the site more appropriate on different devices and screen resolutions:
|Label||Layout width||Column width||Gutter width|
|Large display||1200px and up||70px||30px|
|Default||980px and up||60px||20px|
|Portrait tablets||768px and above||42px||20px|
|Phones to tablets||767px and below||Fluid columns, no fixed widths|
|Phones||480px and below||Fluid columns, no fixed widths|
With the adaptive responsive design, the site will adjust to tablets and phones displayed both in portrait or landscape mode.
The web's architecture provides a highly refined structure of search engine optimized (SEO) code. We took the time to enhance the SEO parameters of every HTML page in the root directory by guiding webbots so as to optimize indexing of each page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results.
In May 2007 we launched an autonomous, fully automated, secure eCommerce service to cater to world markets, across all continents. It addresses the pillars of the cyber world - Top Level Domain (TLD) name registration and Web Hosting - along with a slew of parallel products & services.
The first commercial Internet domain name, in the TLD .com, was registered 15 March 1985 in the name symbolics.com by Symbolics Inc., a computer systems firm in Cambridge, Massachusetts. By 1992, fewer than 15,000 .com domains had been registered.
As of October 2009, 21 generic top-level domains and 250 two-letter country-code top-level domains existed.
According to Verisign, in March 2012 the number of registered domain names had gone up to more that 225 million.
"Nearly six million domain names were added to the Internet in the fourth quarter of 2011, bringing the total number of registered domain names to more than 225 million worldwide across all domains," said Domain Name Industry Brief published by Verisign.
Top Level Domains (TLDs) '.com' and '.net' experienced an aggregate growth in the fourth quarter, reaching a combined total of 113.8 million names, the report said.
"This represents approximately 2 per cent increase in the base over the third quarter of 2011 and an 8 percent increase over the same quarter in 2010," it said.
Through the SwissTronix eCommerce, webmasters from around the globe and all other customers can book generic Top Level Domains (TLD), such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, .CH, .EU, .INFO, .BIZ, .MOBI and .WS. Over 80 TLDs spanning America, Europe and Asia can be booked on the fly with a few clicks.
