News @ RackSRV

Customer Feedback

  • Racksrv are great, had a dedicated server with them since 2010. Really great service from Jon and the team, virtually no issues and when issues have occurred outside racksrv's control customers are kept really up to date with a level of openness I have not seen in any other host - keep up the good work.

    Alex - Pulse Tech Uk Ltd
  • These guys are brilliant, uncompromising support, go out of their way to help even above and beyond their remit. We needed a fast turn round on a new dedicated server, they delivered as promised and have been amazingly helpful ever since. Cant recommend them highly enough.

    Tom - DesignPlusHosting
  • I have been a customer of RackSRV for over 2 years and enjoy the great customer service, the value of the service and the quality of the network. Whenever I needed help Jon and his team have always been there to provide the support! I will highly recommend RackSRV for colocation and other services.

    Alexis - Akakios Communications
  • Overall experience is excellent! Very friendly, helpful and attentive support team - willing to go that extra mile. Price - very fair, somewhat undervalued! Have recommended to several friends... they have all spoken of the great service, even in comparison to the big companies that they all used to use.

    Temur
  • Nothing but praise, especially for the constant updates on service-altering instances, which, while they didn't affect me directly, were useful to know and is something not a lot of other providers do.

    Nick - HostNottingham
  • Having had a few bad experiences with other hosting companies RackSRV are like a breath of fresh air. Their support is second to none and have even helped in areas that maybe they don't have to. What i love the most about RackSRV is their straight talking and honesty. Long may it continue!

    Stuart
  • Excellant level of service, always quick to reply to support tickets. only cancelled because our gaming community had no more use for the server. thank you for a good service, if things change we will return. S Hall.
