What does Storat mean?

basically it means "STORES" or "SHOPS". But it is created by joining the English word "store" with the Arabic sound plural noun "ات". So the combination of both is STORAT!

STORAT.COM creates a unique value proposition to Middle East small businesses as part of Oryx Cloud digital marketing strategy. STORAT.COM will be a unique marketplace for small businesses to bring their business online, build an online store with their own brand, domain name, and professional business email. It will be a destination to publish products, services, jobs, and news for both consumers and businesses in a socially enabled marketplace. The platform will be one of the most cost effective worldwide with subscription plans ranging from free to less than $10, $30, or $50 per month.

In the next few weeks, we will finalise building the first version of the platform that will be hosted on storat.com. In parallel, we will be migrating the online marketplace from the domain Sinbad.ae to Storat.com.

Ownership of STORAT.COM domain gives Oryx Cloud an unprecedented advantage with a premium domain that will improve and protect our digital platform as the premier destination. It will improve search engine rankings and generate traffic as well as being a virtual asset for the company.

Sinbad Marketplace migrates to Sinbad.ae

Sinbad Marketplace migrates to Sinbad.ae domain

Date published: February 2016

For the last 5 months, OryxCloud was running a beta portal called eSinbad.com , a simple and free portal to post advertisements about properties, motors, classifieds, services and jobs. This was a very exciting experiment for Oryx Cloud founders.

The purpose of the portal was to develop an understanding of Middle East digital marketplaces to fine tune our product offering. through the portal, we had an opportunity to interact with hundreds of consumers and small businesses across the middle east. This helped us harness our vision and develop a better understanding and appreciation for middle east community needs and requirements. Through the experiment, we developed a better understanding of the impact of digital marketing and growth hacking techniques for our upcoming platform that we plan to launch in August 2016.

Amazingly, although the portal was just an experiment, we have more than 5000 users registered and 10,000 active Advertisements. As we can't turn our back on our users, we are keeping the site alive with full resources. But as 95% of our registered users are in UAE, we migrated the site from the domain eSinbad.com to Sinbad.ae. Which will make it more relevant for this target market until we launch our product.

To all Sinbaders who participated in the portal over the last 5 months, thank you so much. As a token of appreciation, the site is up, free, and always will be. We guarantee it. Also we are keeping one resource from our team dedicated to managing the site, addressing any inquiry, and most of all fight spammers and scammers to keep the site local and genuine.
