Customer Feedback

  • Thanks for the last 6 years. If I need hosting in the future I will be sure to check out what you're offering.

    Daniel - Rose Computer Services
  • I have found being a RackSRV client to be a pleasure right from my initial inquiries and server setup. I have been amazed at how fast support tickets have been responded to and resolved. Server and network performance has generally been excellent over two years, I would be more than happy to recommend RackSRV to anyone...

    Matthew - The Environmental Illness Resource
  • We have been very satisfied with the quality of service, and especially the level of support given for an unmanaged server, Jon is always there to help out. Very professional and polite, will be considering this company again!

    Keith
  • We've used RackSRV for some time and have always been impressed with the level of service. They're always willing to go the extra mile - there always seems to be someone available to help us out, regardless of the time of day. I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable hosting provider!

    Iain - Piquant Technologies
  • After being recommended by a friend, I found RackSRV to be 'the' ultimate experience any and all server solution companies should strive for. Excellent, prompt, featureful - RackSRV have everything you need. Most things don't even require you to contact a member of staff, you can do most of it yourself....

    Luke
  • 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
  • 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.
