Swiss-based Oxito has more than a decade experience in the web services fields. It offers affordable shared hosting packages as well as email services and domain registration solutions. It also provides great support.

Overview

Oxito

Oxito is a Swiss-based hosting company that was established in 2002. The company has over 11,000 hosted websites, 80,000 email accounts, 300 apps, and clients from more than 100 countries worldwide making it one of the fastest growing providers. Oxito has an elegant French website that’s easy to navigate from both desktops and mobile devices.

Features and Ease of Use

All servers are housed in a Tier 3 data center in Geneva, Switzerland with WAF application installed on Oxito’s infrastructure and integrated with all web hosting and email services. However, Oxito’s servers don’t run on SSD drives which are at least 200% faster than traditional HDD drives, but the company assures 99.99% network uptime.

Oxito offers web-related services such as email services, domain registration, and Linux-based shared hosting packages. The company is currently expanding its web hosting product range to include VPS and cloud hosting solutions. Its shared hosting plans come with some of the following features:

  • 99.99% network uptime
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Up to 100 GB storage
  • Pre-installed CMS
  • Daily backups
  • Up to unlimited databases

All shared hosting packages come with daily backup for your files, data protection, anti-virus, anti-spam, and free SSL Let’s Encrypt certificates by default, but you can install higher SSL certificates if you want. Oxito also supports PHP, phpMyAdmin tool, and MySQL databases with all plans.

What worries me about Oxito is the lack of control panel and site builder which isn’t practical since you’ll have to manually download templates and create files and makes it hard to set up and manage the service, especially if you’re a newbie or don’t have a solid technical background. On a brighter note, a CMS auto-installer is included with all plans to make it easier for you to set up new projects.

Alo on the bad side, Oxito doesn’t support useful features such as SSH access, Cron Jobs, or remote MySQL connections.

Pricing and Support

Oxito offers three shared hosting plans: Simplicity, Liberty, and Serenity. Like most vendors, these plans vary in storage space, number of hosted sites, databases, and email accounts. However, all annual subscriptions include a free domain.

If you’re hosting a small website or a personal blog, the Simplicity plan gives you 10 GB web space, 1 database, 1 domain name, and 5 Pop-IMAP standard mailboxes. Need more resources? You can get 25 GB storage, 5 domain names, 5 databases, and 10 email accounts with the Liberty plan.

If that’s still not enough or if you’re hosting multiple websites, I recommend the Serenity plan. It gives you 100 GB disk space, unlimited websites, unlimited databases, and 20 mailboxes.

Given the value added features and decent web space, Oxito’s prices are quite affordable, particularly the annual subscriptions. I’m only disappointed that it doesn’t offer a money-back guarantee. However, you can ask the customer support to test the service.

Oxito accepts PayPal, credit cards, and bank transfer.

Customer service is available 24/7 through email and support ticket. You can also request a call back. Oxito has an active presence on social media. I contacted them on Facebook, and they send me all the information I needed by email. In addition, there are video tutorials in French and a simple F.A.Q section.

Bottom line on Oxito

Oxito is a long standing provider in the hosting industry. It offers most standard shared hosting features through different price plans and throws in a free domain for annual memberships. However, it falls back short on few important features such as control panel, site builder, and SSD disk drives.

Pros:

  • 99.99% availability
  • Free domain
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Adequate support

Cons:

  • No SSD storage
  • Website and video tutorials in French only
