IT hosting specialist Rackspace has been named the number one host for January in the internationally acclaimed UK.TopHosts.Com Top 25 Web Host List.
“Since 2001, TopHosts UK has served the United Kingdom as the industry’s leading Web hosting authority and information source. This is a prestigious award that we can use to add impetus to our marketing plans to grow our market share in South Africa,” says Geoff Dowell, Rackspace spokesman for the South African market.
In selecting the monthly Number One Host, TopHosts UK considers hundreds of providers and ranks them according to strict criteria, including commitment to customer service, breadth of Web hosting services and innovation in both marketing and technology.
“Over the years, UK.TopHosts.com has become one of the premier resources for the UK Web hosting industry and we are delighted to have been voted Number One, based on what we know is a set of very stringent criteria – right from technology to breadth of services to customer service,” says Doug Loewe, MD of Rackspace EMEA. “We are dedicated to managed hosting and are quite literally fanatical about customer service. This award is a reflection of that.”
Rackspace recently unveiled a new corporate identity reflecting its shift into IT hosting, offering a suite of hosted IT services that are highly reliable and provide better value, including virtualisation, hosted mail, custom application support, back-end IT and storage. A new localised Rackspace website is also being launched in South Africa.
