About Oxxus

Oxxus.net is a subsidiary of Pop Media Ltd, a New Zealand based company founded in 2003. It didn't take long to realise there was a big gap in quality support and infrastructure for Java-based application and so we started to specialise in Java-based web hosting solutions.

As the internet has become central to business activities, Oxxus became essential partner to thousands of small, medium, and large enterprises in 39 countries around the globe.
Our history

Oxxus was founded by the two people with a passion for and expertise in IT, technology and business. It didn't take long before it grew into a much larger "dream-team" of experienced technicians, programmers, web developers, system admins and specialists in Unix, Linux, Java, PHP.

8 years later, Oxxus is one of the leading providers in the world of Java web services.
Our values and standards

Knowledgable and experienced IT team
Our Dream Team comprises some of the most successful people in the IT industry. With half a century of combined experience and 8+years of specialist Java application hosting we know what we're doing.

You don't have to be a sys admin; that's why we're here
If you're not well apt in system admin side of things that's not a problem. We'll help you familiarize yourself with the server environment so that you can feel confident and in total control of your project.

Proactive approach to problems and solutions
We see ourselves as your off-site IT support department. That's why we take a pro-active approach to tech support. We don't just resolve immediate problems you put in front of us. We also try to foresee possible issues before they become major problems for your apps. Our goal is the same as yours, for your application to be safe, stable and reliable at all times.

Long term relationships not one-month-stands
Our goal is to have long-term satisfied customers who use Oxxus for all their hosting needs, stay with us for years and happily refer their friends to us. So we jump through hoops to help you set up your apps and succeed. 300+ customer service reviews are a proof of that.


Our network is entirely based in the United States with multiple backbone peerings to ensure minimum latency and the best possible routes to European, Asian and the Australian/New Zealand networks.

Our server ports range from 100Mbps to 1Gbps ports.
Links are redundant – that means if one link is dropped, packets are rerouted and there is no downtime.
We have peering with Telia Soner (2gbps), Mzima (2gbps), nLayer (2gbps), BTN (2gbps) with total Internap (10gbps).
High performance bandwidth only. That ensures the flow of your data without interruptions caused by unmonitored networks.
Highly competent Cisco engineers monitor all network activities 24/7 to add to your security and safety.

Top of the line servers specially selected to handle high resource needs of Java apps.

Java applications require a lot of RAM and quickly use up the available resources and thus not many companies want to host J2EE. In order to deliver reliable and stable performance for all our customers, servers we deploy are top of the line with the latest generation of processors, optimized and tested to work on J2EE platform.

All servers are powered by Intel processors with RAID 10 array for data protection and redundant power to prevent hardware failure and service interruption.

Currently we are populating the server with the following specs:

Dell server
Intel Dual Westmere E5620
4 x 1 TB harddrives

Disaster Prevention

All servers are protected by redundant power supply. If power goes off at one power plant, generator automatically switches to another source and thus we avoid downtime caused by power failures.
Hard disk failures are prevented by hardware raid 1+0 with mirror in strip set (4 hard drives). They are replaced by hotswap in case of failure so there is no service interruption.

Top-notch Tech Support for Java

We have been specializing in Java hosting since 2003. During this period we have hosted over 10,0000 apps and encountered almost every problem imaginable. For you this means that you'll always have an experienced tech at hand to shed light and help you resolve your problems quickly. There's just no substitute for experience.

300+ unfiltered customers' reviews are the best testiment to the quality of our support. Please take your time to read about their experiences.
A Company of Engineers

Oxxus is a company of engineers. All our staff have over 10 years experience with Unix platform, Java application servers, hardware, and various software, used in the hosting industry.

What can you expect when you join us?

After ordering request an engineer to call you or arrange an instant messenger or Skype meeting to get you started with your applications as quickly as possible.
All urgent requests handled within 1 hour. All non-urgent within 4 hours.
No generic automated responses. Each incident is reviewed and responded to by an experienced technician not a machine.
Our support is flexible. Our team will happily offer their expertise even with those things that fall out of the parameters of our responsibility.
We are here for you around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all 365 days of the year (even on public holidays).
All our customers have direct access to our management, so if you need to escalate any issue to management you can do so at any time.

Billing Issues Run-Around
Customer support with billing issues non-existent. Given the run around for nearly 6 months after they said they would refund my account for a billing issue. I wouldn't recommend to anyone that values their money.
