  • Extreme performance — Bauk provides higher performance for both static and dynamic content than any other Web server. For example, it's more than 3 times faster than Apache serving same tasks. See our Benchmarks, and BaukBench HTTP/1.1 benchmark tool and compare/verify yourself. Bauk has its reputation with a reason
  • Single-process architecture — Architecture that provides highest speed and most effective resource utilization
  • Low resource consumption — Bauk can use as little as 10% of system resources compared to Apache in a same configuration and usage pattern. Eg. a typical Linux instance consumes around 2MB of memory. Suitable for dedicated and VPS servers
  • Static and Dynamic Content — Complete ASP-like scripting environment for Server-Side JavaScript, PHP, Perl, Python and Tcl. Ie. easy just like working with HTML files, scripts placed in Web directory automatically executed by Web server/interpreter
  • Unlimited simultaneous HTTP connections / clients — Serves any number of simultaneous HTTP connections on a single system without any performance penalty
  • Unlimited Virtual Hosts — Serves any number of Virtual Hosts on a single system without any performance penalty
  • Dynamic Virtual Hosts — Add/remove hosts on-the-fly simply by adding/removing a directory, ie. → /path/to/ without server stopping/restarting
  • RDP (Reverse Domain Path) Dynamic Virtual Hosts — Ie. → /path/to/com/domain/www/
  • OS Support and Portability — Linux and *BSD 32bit/64bit
  • Easy & intuitive management
  • Security
