You have a lot of questions related to having a website? It seems too techie? It’s not anymore! It is the purpose of Automasites. Take a look.

Les Automasites Automasites? automats? sites? automatic websites? yes. The automasites are ready-to-go Website loans that free you from all the myths surrounding Internet technologies: What do I need to have a website? Who will help me? will the technician or the webmaster whom I know accept my texts? and photographs? will she/he put them online when I would want? and the language? Gone. The automasites enable you to be detached from questions of hosting, identity (the domain name), and computer development and to be completely autonomous for updating. Created on the basis of free software, and in particular the publication software (Cms) Spip, and hosted with non commercial providers, these sites guarantee you total independence.

To break out of isolation and give these initiatives the visibility they deserve as providers of a strong social appreciation and utopia of another possible world. To facilitate experience sharing, through networking which will be built up progressively.
