Fast and resilient, it spans the length of the UK. We run our own regional and diverse dark fibre network at 10 gigabits to deliver the ultimate in network performance.
Free DNS Services
Our custom and comprehensive DNS platform is available for all RapidSwitch customers so you’re welcome to use our DNS servers and remove the strain from your own server’s resources. We provide forward, secondary and reverse DNS services.
Our client portal is one of the most comprehensive of any hosting company. Continually evolving for over a decade, you can control all aspects of your service online with zero hassle – from invoicing to server monitoring, it’s all setup in one place.
We provide a free, four hour KVMoIP session each month for every server on your account, allowing you to access your server without network access and avoid the expense of paying for infrequently used out-of-band management cards.
24/7 Monitoring and Alerting
Our portal provides comprehensive monitoring of your server for free, including configuration of email and SMS alerts to alert you if there are any issues. An absolute must for self-managed services, you’re in touch with your service wherever you are.
Live Bandwidth Graphs
Bandwidth monitoring is provided live through our control panel, 24/7. You’re continually aware of usage and we provide estimates of your bandwidth for the remainder of the month so you can monitor activity and avoid overage charges, all provided in data and graph format.
You are always in full control of your dedicated server at RapidSwitch. You have complete Administrator/root access to your servers, can run your own custom scripts, can choose what security policies you put in place, and with a dedicated server you’re not affected by other users' activity.
Rest assured that our qualified staff are on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We use our own technical staff, not generic datacentre staff that deal with many hosting companies. Our staff hold accreditations with Microsoft, Linux, VMWare and other leading technology partners.
