Customer Feedback

  • Great service super impressed with your infrastructure. I really loved your server I but I did not get enough traffic to my site to justify keeping it. You guys rock. I will be back when I have more servers needed.

    Eduardo
  • We appreciate your 100% network and server uptime. We'll be back again to host with Racksrv in end of Dec or early next year when our application development is complete, thanks!

    Jitendra - J.R.D. Company Ltd.
  • I would highly recommend the services of RackSRV to anyone looking to rent a server overseas. Not only was the customer support and service great and enjoyable but it was also for an affordable price. Keep it up!

    William
  • Jon@RackSRV has been great to us, we have a couple of off-net servers with them for backup/DR purposes and have had zero problems. Everything was set up quickly, despite us choosing the wrong options when ordering the server and the prices Jon gave us are fantastic, no-one else could even come near them. I've never...

  • What can I say...? Almost 2 years with RackSRV and no problems at all. Support is very fast and server uptime was 100% - perfect! Thanks to Jon and all the RACKSRV staff!

    Guillaume - >Xtra-Gamers<
  • I cant recommend RackSRV highly enough! Overall, support is definitely one of RackSRV's many strong points, if you were to single out any one in particular, and this really defined the service for us. Looking forward to renewing our service in future.

  • The experience with RackSRV has been first class from the outset. Speed of setup, professionalism of the staff has been second to none. I cannot fault RackSRV. If I had a single criticism it would be that the security getting to the datacentre is so tight, it can take a while.
