Customer Feedback

  • I have been totally satisfied with the service by RackSrv. The only reason I had to cancel my account was because I didn't need a dedicated server anymore. Thumbs up for the great support and their reliable servers!

    Stephan
  • Having been a customer of RackSRV a few years ago, when I needed a VPS for a new project I knew exactly where to go. Great presales help and quick set up, the whole process has been hassle free.

    Craig
  • RackSRV hosts all of the game servers for our forthcoming title Heroes of Newerth in the UK, we are currently at 25+ boxes hosted here and the service and support is outstanding. I'm not sure these people ever sleep as the watching of the boxes never ends. Keep up the good work!

    Shawn - S2 Games
  • Since our clan first got a server with RackSRV we've had nothing but good experiences. The reliability and cost of services were top notch and support are a great help on the very rare occasions they're needed (and that's mostly due to us).

    Martin
  • I trialled the service for a future project and I'm very satisfied. I will be back in the near future for sure!

    Pierluigi - Computer's Home
  • We used a dedicated server from RackSRV for around 4 months. Throughout this period network and power availability was superb, and the little problems we did experience were dealt with in a timely and professional manor. Overall we're happy with the received service and would recommend!

    Olorin - Ello Group
