HostReview Ranks Rackspace Hosting Among Best Hosting Services

Filed in by Ashleigh Davis | February 3, 2011 11:07 am

We are thrilled to announce Rackspace Hosting was just recognized as one of the best hosting providers by the 2010 HostReview Annual Web Hosting Awards. Companies competed in eight categories, and Rackspace was awarded Best Web Hosting Company[1] and second only to Amazon Web Services as the Best Cloud Service[2]. We also ranked third for the Reader’s Choice Award[3] – thank you for your votes!

This announcement comes on the heels of exciting news here at Rackspace. A few weeks ago we celebrated the six-month anniversary of OpenStack[4]. Last month we announced an agreement with Akamai for CloudFiles[5] customers. And, in December we launched a Managed Service Level for Cloud Server[6]s and acquired upstart Cloudkick[7], folding their talented team into our growing family of fanatical Rackers.

As Rackspace moves forward into a new year, there are quite a few exciting projects on the horizon. We look forward to building our product offerings, keeping you posted every step of the way.

Thank you to our clients, partners and fellow Rackers who continue to make Rackspace one of the best hosting providers in the world.
