|What is Oxatis?||
Oxatis offers global solutions for creating complete websites (online CMS software, hosting, integrated shopping cart, etc.). Our solutions allow small businesses (SoHos and SMBs) to establish an Internet presence and sell effectively online without any prior technical knowledge and with little investment (20 to 50€ per month excluding VAT, with no sign-up fees or long-term obligations).
Oxatis is the easiest and most powerful solution currently available on the market today for self-built and self-managed Internet sites. It's not a bottom-of-the-line solution for beginners. It's a scalable solution that can meet the simplest of needs as well as the most complex expectations. Oxatis allows you to progress at your own speed and according to your personal needs.
We include everything you need for creating and administering your site: complete software, hosting, email, domain name... everything!
Oxatis is a complete, ready-to-use system that includes an online catalog, shopping cart, information request tracking, hot news, hot links, contacts, photo albums and many other components. Anyone can open up a site in less than an hour without any particular skills!
|What is the Oxatis customer profile?||
Oxatis services are designed for all small and medium sized businesses: SoHos SMBs, craftsmen, freelancers, merchants, associations, etc.
The Oxatis user profile is simple: Everyday people with common sense that look at Internet in the same way as all of the other challenges in their profession.
Most Oxatis users have little or no technical knowledge when it comes to the Internet and their sites receive tens of thousands of visits every month. There are Oxatis users, however, who are experienced technicians (like our Internet Solution Centers) and use our services because they can provide their customers with the best service at the best price.
|How is Oxatis different from other solutions?||
There are two big differences between Oxatis and the other solutions that exist on the market today.
With Oxatis, you benefit from a set of scalable services for creating and developing your Internet site easily and at the right price!
- Our solutions include absolutely everything you need to create an Internet site: online content management software, hosting, secure payment, marketing tools, shopping cart software, domain names, emails, etc. Oxatis is your only provider and forges dozens of parterships (banks, price comparison services, payment processors, etc.) to provide you with market advantages.
- Our system is designed to allow you to create a scalable site on your own. We are not here to create a few static Web pages for you at a bargain price! We provide a solution that will grow with your needs.
|What tools do you offer for generating traffic on my site?||
This is a vast subject that can't be restricted to "classic website SEO".
Oxatis is always on the lookout for new, efficient techniques that will allow our customers to create traffic on their e-commerce sites. As soon as a technique has been tested and proven to be effective, we do everything in our power to make them available by offering simple tools for putting them into action and signing attractive partnerships with the leading actors in the market.
Some of the tools and techniques offered by Oxatis:
1 - Search engine optimization.
2 - Database indexing with price engines and price comparison services.
3 - Sponsored links.
4 - Hot links.
5 - Banner Ads.
6 - Affiliates.
7 - Newsletters.
8 - Sitemap creation (Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc.).
Click on the links above to see additional information about each of these tools in our online help center.
With Oxatis, you have a wide range of tools allowing you to manage all of the major methods for generating traffic on your website.
|What are the alternatives to the Oxatis offer?||
The classic method for creating an Internet site consists of:
If you're comfortable with all of these steps (and all that we haven't listed!), then Oxatis isn't for you.
- Buying site creation software (such as Dreamweaver, FrontPage, etc.),
- Learning HTML,
- Selecting a hosting service,
- Mastering SQL database language because it's impossible to create a serious site without a data manager,
- Programming in ASP or PHP,
- Dealing with problems posed by secure payment, server dimensioning and security (load, hackers, etc.),
With a few rare exceptions, we strongly believe that the profile described above doesn't correspond to the average entrepreneur. We convinced ourselves that it was possible to provide a service where building and managing a website could be equally as feasible for
entrepreneurs as managing their accounts and estimates.
But believing and doing isn't the same thing. It took a lot of time, investment, experience and customer attention to make it possible. The services proposed by Oxatis today are the result of these investments, experience and constant attention.
|What do you mean by "shared risks"?||
As an entrepreneur, you know what it's like to take risks.
Every step in the life of your business or association (and creating a website is an important step) poses a risk and your role is to minimize these risks to maximize your chances of success.
What risks are you taking by choosing Oxatis?
1 - You know how to use online applications, but you're wondering if Oxatis will measure up to your needs and expectations.
This risk is virtually nonexistent because Oxatis:
This is why Oxatis has become the number one e-commerce solution for small and medium businesses.
- is a solid, reliable and self-financing company. Created in 2001, Oxatis immediately reinvests yearly earnings.
- continues to grow. Since its creation, the number of Oxatis users grows by more than 7% every month,
- has an outside company test its servers every 5 minutes. That adds up to more than 300,000 tests over the last five years and a rate of more than 99.8% certified reliability!
- has an exceptionally high number of loyal customers.
2 - You're worried that you won't be able to master the system and that Oxatis technical support won't be up to the task of helping you out effectively.
This risk exists but is shared because Oxatis:
If we don't succeed in helping you succeed, you will have surely wasted your time, but we will have wasted ours as well!
- doesn't charge any set-up fees or require you to buy any software. You only pay for a one month subscription to start out,
- doesn't require any long-term obligations.
We share equal risks and equal opportunities.
There's no better guarantee!
|Can my site go down because of an Oxatis server failure?||
Our server farm is highly redundant (daily data backup, redundant routers, clustered servers, power supply backup with a 9-day independent run time, air conditioning, etc.), which minimizes the risk of equipment failure. Since our creation, Oxatis has never experienced the suspension of services due to a system failure or equipment update.
Our servers are tested every 5 minutes by Keynote-Red Alert, the worldwide leader in website monitoring. Since April 2001 when we began using these services, our certified availability rating has been greater than 99.8%.

|Can your servers be attacked by hackers?||
There is always a risk, but our job is to anticipate and protect ourselves from these attacks.
To do so, we pay the worldwide leader in website security testing (Security Metrics) to attack
our servers every 15 minutes to make sure they are updated and configured properly to stand up against any real attacks!
All necessary corrective measures are taken immediately to ensure our safety and your peace of mind.
|Are the mailboxes you provide protected by an anti-virus?||
Absolutely! Oxatis email servers are protected by an anti-virus that is updated every 15 minutes!
That makes all the difference between our anti-virus and your personal anti-virus that you update once a week at best. This is especially true because we know that 99% of viruses come in through email and that viral attacks reach maximum efficiency within 24 to 48 hours. Risks become practically nonexistent because we ensure your protection within the first few hours of attack.
|How much do Oxatis services cost and what are the advantages?||

There are no long-term obligations, set-up fees, or monthly subscription fees to pay up-front.
You keep using our solution for as long as you're satisfied with our services! Complimentary e-commerce services are available to meet all of your needs as your e-business grows and develops (see pricing).
