    Hopefully I can get some new ideas/recommendations to check out.

    Looking to find a new hosting company for a new site I have - currently have 6 cloud servers with Rackspace but am considering a new hoster for this one.

    So looking for :

    Superb Customer Service
    Cloud Servers that are easy to roll out when required
    Latest Windows Servers
    MS SQL cloud server option
    DNS Management
    Email management
    Cost effective - currently paying around £60pm with RS.


    As said Rackspace have been superb - just want to also make use of different A/B/C classes for the IP ranges.

    Any thoughts gratefully received.

    I know this post is 2 weeks old, but where on Rackspace can you get 6 cloud servers for £60pm? All I see are managed cloud options and the cheapest being £20 for 1gb RAM and 1 vCPU core.

    I have heard good things about Rackspace UK but ideally do not want to pay £20 for those specs.

    Hi Pyro

    No it was £60pm each - sorry didn't make that very clear. But also just found out - they now force new servers to have the managed resource at about £80pm (I think this is a single cost - not per server) so rapidly starting to crank their costs up again now they are well established and I guess the market is becoming more saturated!

    Thanks for getting back.

    I would have recommended AWS but with support I am not so sure. Have you looked at Claranet? I heard their network is good but have not experienced their support.
