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.
