Why does Artera exist?
To provide a dedicated hosting service to agencies, a service alternative to the mass-hosting offer, high-quality and high-performance, without needing the technical skills for installing, configuring and maintaining the service itself.
To make accessible to every one an advanced hosting service based on the latest technologies, generally more expensive, supported by specialised technicians and developed bydevelopers.
To be the right alternative for companies that intend to outsource corporate services with the addition of support, as if it was done inside the company itself, through our talents, and with the reliability of a large structured company.

Sergio Ravera • CEO
Born in Como on 31 October 1979 and raised in a family who had been merchants for generations. In 1998 I opened my first e-commerce and in 2002 I founded Artera, now a reference brand in premium managed cloud hosting services.
I am the managing director of DHH Switzerland SA, a company of the DHH SpA international group, listed on the Milan stock exchange (AIM – ISIN: IT0005203622) which owns the Artera brand.
In 2019 I obtained a CAS “Certificate of Advanced Studies” as an adult trainer, I am an active researcher in the field of new technologies and fascinated by all that is avant-garde.
I live in Switzerland, specifically in Ticino, with my family and 3 black cats.
Massimiliano Torromeo • CTO
I’ve been a computer enthusiast since I was a child, I self-taught myself and started programming from the age of twelve.
Over time I have become a staunch supporter of free software and the open-source movement.
This fondness for free software soon led me to get closer to the Linux world and in 2011 to become a member of the Arch Linux Trusted Users team.
I’ve dealt with every aspect related to our infrastructure in Artera since 2007, including internal developments of software and enterprise solutions, research and development and internal training of our programming and support departments.
Other passions include video games, TV series and films strictly in the original language, heavy metal, tennis, motorcycle trips and Japan.
Claudio Bizzotto • CCO
I started working in Artera in 2008 as a front-end developer and with the growth of the company, it was natural to move away from the strictly technical aspects towards commercial and organisational support, arriving to coordinate the team of developers and support.
After studying computer science and programming in high school, I took a degree in physical engineering and still, even if I have returned to my passion for initial computer science, my free time is often dedicated to reading news and books in the scientific field, and physics in particular. I particularly follow everything that has to do with time, a topic that has always fascinated me.
A lot of music, of many genres, but in the office, I always have a post-rock playlist on headphones.
Marco Leone • Sys Admin
Always passionate about IT, I started working in Artera in 2008 in the assistance department, but I also carried out development, SEO and service management jobs. This allowed me to acquire the appropriate know-how to get the general picture of all the technical needs of customers.
Sports, music, fantasy books and board games are my favourite pastimes.
Paolo Dainotti • Support Team
I manage the technical support team that resolves the problems encountered on our hosting services or simple clarifications regarding their use and configuration, including cPanel, use of the e-mail service, FTP and SSH connection, domain and DNS management, file permissions management etc. etc.
I have extensive experience in migrating sites and mail to our servers, and I can perform this type of operation by limiting to the minimum possible disruptions that normally occur during these activities.
I like spending my free time watching movies, playing video or board games, reading a good book or writing short stories.
Simone Botta • Operation Team
I started working in Artera as a hardware and software IT technician for on-site & on-farm server/client management. Now, together with Paolo, I manage the technical support team for the customer regarding problems encountered on our hosting and cloud services.
I provide assistance on windows servers, cPanel, mail server, firewall, VoIP, FTP and SSH connections, domain and DNS management, network and mail configurations on PCs and smartphones as well as on other devices.
Since I was a child I found my passion in technology, computer science, science-fiction, cinema and video games. Motto: Don’t panic! And carry a towel.
