    Stuart - Star Web Hosting Limited
  • We used a dedicated server from RackSRV for around 4 months. Throughout this period network and power availability was superb, and the little problems we did experience were dealt with in a timely and professional manor. Overall we're happy with the received service and would recommend!

    Olorin - Ello Group
  • 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).

  • Just a quick note to say that the support and the server have been second to none, with no downtime which has been a first!! Any problems that I had have been sorted quickly (all user errors on my part though!)
