Why get your own server?
Shared web hosting servers typically have 100-200, or even thousands
of other users on them. These are people who could potentially read
your files stored on the server. CGI programs, passwords, even email
could be exposed. If you run a business on your web site, your customer's
credit card numbers and personal information are at risk. With a
dedicated RaQ server, you don't have to worry about other users.
Only you have access to the server and your files are safe from
When the system resources are shared between 200 sites, even high-end
shared web hosting servers can experience slowdowns. When other
users on the system run complicated CGI programs or just have popular
sites, your web site suffers. When your site is located on a dedicated
RaQ server, you don't have to worry about someone else's site slowing
Feel free to install any software you like on your own server and
run all the heavy-duty programs you need. Stream audio/video, host
video game tournaments, run intensive database-backed dynamic web
sites. As the server administrator, you can do pretty much anything
you like. With a shared web hosting account, you would have to ask
permission and probably pay extra for any custom software installation,
if it's allowed at all.
Unlimited email accounts. No bandwidth caps. As much disk space
and memory as you want. With a dedicated server, there's no limit
to what you can do with your site. Instead of having one slice of
the limited resources of a shared web hosting server with 100-200
other users, you have control over the whole server. If that's not
enough, there are plenty of upgrades available to meet virtually

Many people think that administering a server requires years of
experience. If you made it to this web page, you already know enough

The Cobalt RaQ servers use the extremely reliable and popular Linux
operating system. Virtually all popular CGI programs will run without
problems on the RaQ. Microsoft FrontPage server extensions are also
supported for those who are used to Windows, but are looking for
something more powerful and more reliable.
Your business is important to you, so your online presence is critical.
Sharing a web server with 200 other users means you have an extra
200 points of failure. A poorly-written CGI script or an mp3 file
that 1,000,000 people want to download can bring the server to its
knees. When your site is the only one on the server, you don't have
to worry about what everyone else is doing.
