London, 14 April Once again, Rackspace Managed Hosting is ranked as the most reliable hosting provider by Netcraft which measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading hosting companies on an ongoing basis. This accolade follows hot on the heels of Rackspace being voted âBest Web Host of the Yearâ by the readers of Linux Format magazine, a tribute to its own record of four years of uninterrupted network uptime for customers, as well as its service delivery.
Mike Prettejohn from Netcraft comments: "Rackspace has been the most reliable hosting company site for each of the last two months in Netcraftâs widely referenced Hosting Company Site Monitoring service. Fifty of the best known hosting company sites worldwide are monitored at 15 min intervals from eight points around the Internet; the reliability of the top performing sites is such that a single failed request from any point during the month can make the difference between coming top and not."
Prettejohn continues: "It is only the second time since the service started that a hosting company has come top in consecutive months. Perhaps the biggest compliment being paid to Rackspace is that no one is surprised that theyâve done it".
Dominic Monkhouse, managing director, Rackspace Managed Hosting Europe, comments: "Dedicated Managed Hosting is all Rackspace does and weâre committed to providing the best service in the industry. Customer support is at the top of our agenda and this means providing a reliable, continuous hosted service for mission critical websites and applications. We achieve this through our homegrown, award-winning brand of customer service, Fanatical Supportâ¢.
"Our reliability is a huge reason why customers are willing to recommend us. Weâre the most recommended hosting provider in Europe, with 96.6 percent of customers telling their friends about us. We live and breathe hosting and this recognition is a great reward for our peopleâs passion."
