What We Do
We free business owners to focus on important tasks by managing their servers for them.
Web developers, digital marketers and other small businesses turn to rackAID to manage, update and maintain their servers. We help our customers succeed by helping the identify, implement and maintain the right hosting strategy for their business.
With our services, our customers can focus on their business and not their servers.
Before founding rackAID in 2006, our founder, Jeff Huckaby, worked with large and small businesses providing Linux system support. Jeff freelanced and found his clients getting frustrated with recurring server issues, unexpected costs and other technical problems.
He realized that while many companies rushed to provide cheap hosting services few were delivering adequate support.
As a result, many business owners hit a roadblock. They had great online business ideas but could not implement them without more support.
Simple Rules = Great Service
Jeff did not want to see great ideas undermined by poor technical support. So he set out to simply the support process. He did this by adopting a few simple rules that still guide rackAID’s services today:
- Design server support services that add value your business.
- Communicate clearly so you understand what needs to be done and why.
- Recommend the right solutions — even if it is not with us.
- Fixing problems permanently and everyone benefits.
- Make pricing and services terms clear and predictable.
Today, rackAID helps dozens of companies throughout the world manage their Linux servers.
Let us help you get your hosting on the right track.
