Dreadful, Dreadful, Dreadful support!

I've had servers with Rapidswitch for over 8 years and have watched as their service and support has slowly degraded. It used to be a good company but their response times and support quality has steadily got worse and worse. They...Read More

Dear Graham

Upon reviewing your account with us this review comes as a surprise. It seems to stem from a single event where you had a service failure recently, but prior to that we have seen no issues at all

Service used: Dedicated Server

Expert Overview

UK Hosting Company Focused on Dedicated Servers

Rapid Switch is based in the UK and has been providing high quality hosting services since 1999.  They currently have over 20,000 servers operating in 7 data centers. The company prides itself on the fact that they own all the infrastructure from end to end, which gives them greater control regarding what they offer and how much it costs.

Rapid Switch has also been recognized as one of the 50 fastest growing tech companies in the UK, which is quite impressive.  Overall, this is a very well-established company that has been able to remain innovative in providing their customers with an excellent hosting experience.

Uptime & Reliability

Exceptional Uptime

The reliability of this company is extremely good.  They have been in business for a very long time and clearly know what they are doing when it comes to keeping websites up and running.  This starts with the high quality hardware that they use, and continues with the state-of-the-art data centers that they have had built.  If you need the ultimate in reliability, you can opt for their colocation services, which can keep your sites up in almost any situation.

Features

Variety of Quality Features

You'll have quite a few options to choose from when you opt to get your hosting through this company.  They are primarily focused on offering dedicated servers, but within that structure they have lots of choices.  Their main dedicated server packages start at just 39 Euro per month and can include up to 8 gigs of RAM with a dual core CPU.  This server will be more than enough to handle most mid-sized websites.  You can then go up from there to choose servers that have up to 256 gigs of RAM and multiple CPUs.

You can also select a GPU server, which is a great option for graphics intensive work.  This is not the type of server you want for normal web hosting, but rather if you have a business need that requires high quality graphics processing.  The server can handle it remotely, which can save you the hassle of setting it up and investing in a full server yourself.

They also offer colocation services, which can dramatically improve the uptime and reliability of your hosting.  As you look through all the options you will definitely see that they have some of the best dedicated hosting packages around.

Support

24/7 Tech Support

The tech support with this company is available 24/7.  You can contact them through phone, email, live chat or their ticketing system.  They will get back with you quickly and help to address any type of hosting problem you might be having.  I didn't see any type of knowledge base or other self-help information, which is unfortunate.

Pricing

Excellent Price Ranges

The prices are quite fair for what you are getting.  The low end hosting packages are priced low, but for the hardware you get it is a nice deal.  Then you can move up to higher end hardware for higher prices.  The top level dedicated hosting package starts at $174 per month, but can go higher based on your specific configuration choices.

The other hosting options are also priced in line with what you would expect to see.  What makes this company's pricing great is that they have such a wide range of options to choose from

Summary

Overall Great Hosting Option

This is really one of the better dedicated hosting companies on the market today.  They have a great reputation for quality and seem to do an excellent job of staying ahead of the curve in terms of technology.  If you're looking for a dedicated hosting solution in the UK, this is an excellent choice.

Pros:

  • Great Hardware
  • Diverse Price Points
  • Exceptional Reliability

Cons:

  • No Shared or VPS options
