  • 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!

  • RackSRV offers a great service, I've been with them since 2008. Excellent support is provided, sometimes you get answers in a matter of minutes, even on Sundays! Pricing is much lower than most, what more could you ask for? Highly recommended to anybody!

  • RackSRV provided me everything I needed, apart from Windows VPS's, I am not a fan of linux and I needed a windows VPS for game servers. If you're a linux fan or don't need windows then RackSRV will exceed your expectations!

    Alex
  • Racksrv provided exactly what I needed, at an extremely reasonable price. Their service was always fast and helpful, and I can safely say that if I ever need hosting again in the future, Racksrv will be my first stop.

  • 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).

  • We've been customers of RackSRV for many years and they have never let us down. First class service and support.
