About RapidHost

...delivering internet hosting, backup and email services since 1999...

We specialise in helping organisations make the best use of their internet investments by providing a range of managed hosting services delivered by professional staff from a highly secure UK data centre.


About Us

RapidHost has been delivering internet hosting, backup and email services since 1999, originally from its base in Marlow, Buckinghamshire. In that time it has built up a customer list numbering over 600 made up of a mix of small, medium and large businesses operating internationally as well as within the UK.

Our specialism in helping companies using the FileMaker technology onto the internet has led us to become the leading supplier of FileMaker hosting worldwide.

What we do

We offer a complete 24x7 managed service environment from our secure data centres located in the UK, as well as a range of added-value services related to hosted solutions. Technical support is provided by 'real people' on a 24 hour basis sharing a common technical management platform.

Our service range includes:

  • Domain Management - acquisition, management and hosting of internet domains.
  • Server Hosting - a range of individually configured Virtual Private Server (VPS) and Dedicated Server systems.  VPSs can be live within one working day of a purchase.
  • Complex Systems Hosting- a build-to-order service that utilises all of our technical experience to cost effectively create more complex hosting environments for customers with specific technical or commercial needs. This can include system deployments across multiple data centres.
  • Managed Application Services - complete services covering popular branded applications, including Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SharePoint.
  • FileMaker Services - a complete portfolio of hosting solutions for users of the FileMaker database technology.
  • Data Archiving Services - a total service to archive server and PC held data with end-user restoration when needed.
