  • Great service provided by RackSRV, I have been with them for about 2 years now, but I have no worries whatsoever as I know my Server is in safe hands with Jon - he's been most helpful this last week. Great job RackSRV!

  • We've had our sites located on a dedicated Linux server with RackSrv since 2015. The team from RackSRV have always been responsive, and a pleasure to deal with. The hardware and network have been rock solid, quick and exactly what we need.
