Why get your own server?


.:. Security

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 prying eyes.

.:. Speed
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 you down.

.:. Flexibility
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.

.:. Scalability

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 any requirements.

.:. Ease of use
Many people think that administering a server requires years of experience. If you made it to this web page, you already know enough to administer a Cobalt RaQ server. Through its intuitive web-based control panel, you can set up email accounts, configure web sites, check traffic stats, and all the necessary day-to-day administration. If you're unsure of anything, our expert staff would be glad to help you out at any time of day. Our help system includes extensive online documentation, real-time chat forums, and free email and telephone support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

.:. Compatibility
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.

.:. Stability
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.
