Their customer service SUCKS. They are completely rigid. I am trying to upgrade our service and might have been asking to take a dump in their mouth. Maybe this is just an English thing, but the customer service sucks. Go somewhere else. I am waiting for their sales people to upgrade our account...... the longer I wait ... the more I will blog


Quick to respond to problems. Not hot on phone support, but email support is good.My hosting needs are not complicated and there system has as much or little as I require. I like having a dedicated server with Rapidswitch, as it allows me to add multiple sites and I can have all info in one place. I would recommend anyone looking for a dedicated server and quick responses to problems.
