Donation FAQ
How and why to donate.

Where do I donate?

What do I get for donating?

Depending on the amount you donate, you'll receive different perks. See our donor perks page for a list of benefits.

Where does my donation money go?

The Cobalt Network is an expensive operation to run. We spend roughly $110 every month paying for the server bills, and 100% of your donation money goes to funding the server and paying for things like:

  • hardware (CPU, memory, storage)
  • high-speed internet
  • website (hosting, domains, BuyCraft)
  • DNS (port forwarding and IP tools)
  • DDoS/DoS mitigation and prevention
  • advertising
  • custom plugin design

The administration will never use the money for their own personal gain. Any profit is put into a bank account for use at a later time.

How safe is my information?

Cobalt is PCI Level 1 compliant and uses a system called Stripe to handle donations. When you make a purchase, you enter a credit card number on our website. All credit card numbers and other personal information cannot be accessed by us, and only passes through Stripe once. To learn about Stripe's security, click here .
