Site News There has been much excitement of late here at Vulture Central as we finally found a permanent home for the world's favourite IT news organ. Cue excited chatter about burstable bandwidth and high-speed and redundant network connectivity.

You're right - maybe we should get out more, but we are genuinely delighted to announce that as of right now The Register is hosted by Rackspace Managed Hosting Europe at the company's state-of-the-art data centre in West Drayton.

Yup, we never thought we'd see "state-of-the-art" and "West Drayton" in the same sentence. Nevertheless, this is where our two web servers and two database servers live, lovingly tended by Rackspace and its round-the-clock monitoring, security and technical support.

It's that customer support which was critical in securing Rackspace our hosting contract. In addition, we were convinced that Rackspace could meet all of our current and future requirements. When you're doing 20 million impressions a month, you want to be sure your kit is not going to fall over at the drop of a hat.

Reg supremo Linus "Fish Fingers" Birtles took a moment from perusing an enormous Excel spreadsheet detailing the percentage of Reg readers in Romania who are both Catholic and vegetarian to offer: "It's been tough to find a company which can meet our unique needs, both technically and culturally. Rackspace is that company."

Enough said. If you'd like further information on Rackspace, you can fill in the form below and they'll get back to you. Of course, Rackspace will handle your data in accordance with the Data Protection Act, and will not pass it on to third parties.
