Damn! That's good..... Are the prices frozen lifetime? (that is, if I buy the 1 year deal which stretches to 18 months, can I renew my subscription for another 18 months at the same price as before?)

That includes dedicated servers too?

Why is your site (tera-byte) so slow to load?


Thanks

If a company can run a promotion now, they can certainly do it easily in 18 months.

- bandwidth pricing falling
- cheaper,more reliable,bigger hard drives.
- fast processors, more capacity per server
- more automation.

I have a basic stupid question:

On the page it states the following:
Up to 100GB of transfer
•32megs of RAM on initial install
•10.2GB standard storage
•Unlimited email addresses
•Up to 300,000 page views per month
•The ability to handle up to 35 million web objects or "hits" in a single day

So, up to 100GB, and up to 300,000 page views per month, what does that mean, is it up to 100GB or up to 300,000 page views per month, whats the difference, it has left me confused and wondering.

Lets say that each page is only 10,000 bytes, times that by 300,000 and you've got 3,000,000,000 whats that 3GB? or 30GB? so whats the difference and why is it listed at all, are you limiting people to only allow up to 300,000 page views in a month on the server?

The other question is this: You state on the order page the following:
To add MySQL is $375
Mysql pkg file is available from cobalt, I dont know about the raq3, but on the raq4 software admin panel, you can install MySQL by including the ftp url to the cobalt site for the mysql pkg file and the server will install it. Isn't this the same thing for cobalt 3's? If so couldnt I just install mysql through the admin panel?

Php, I assume that I can install my own php as well, do you know of any reason why php4 can not be used on a raq3?

Thanks for the info.

the reason my site reads both the actual transfer allowed (100 gigs) and 300,000 page views is the marketing plan for these servers. i wont be marketing them just to people like yourself who know what a gig is, ill also be marketing them to people who dont know a thing about the internet. abd your calculation is correct but it isnt suposed to read 300,000 page views a month its suposed to read 300,000 page views a day, the site is not finished yet

yes php4 will work on the server and yes you can install both of them yourself. my reason for pricing them like that is if i install them i would have to support them so your paying for a support contract in that price.
