Why us?

First you would want to use Arch City Webs because we can come out to your place of business, we are real people and we want you to succeed.

Our first priority is to help you make decisions that guide your business to its greatest success in being on-line.

Here are some more technical reasons you would consider when looking for a good web host provider.

We can create a new Arch City Webs -powered site – and even add some email accounts – in less than five minutes. Load-Balancing, clustering, and redundant storage are all inherited by your application automatically, without any effort.

From the first byte served, your site is hosted on advanced clustered technology designed for high-traffic, high-performance websites. When your site grows bigger than what’s included, you pay inexpensive scale pricing for exactly what you use and nothing more.

  • Scale your bandwidth
    As much as you need for 25¢ per GB
  • Scale your SAN storage
    As much as you need for 50¢ per GB
  • Scale your compute
    As many as you need for 1¢ per compute cycle


    • No hardware to manage, no devices to configure.
    • It runs what you have and works like you’d think.
    • Fully supported. Call us any hour, day or night.

    Standard Platform

    Most of the new hosting platforms require custom-code and architecture to make your application work. We are different because it’s designed to run your application with very little (if any) modification. The platform we are on is built on existing web standards and powered by the proven technology that you know and use. That means you get the benefits of a scalable platform–for free–spending zero time coding towards custom APIs or data schema.

    All These Ready on your Domain RIGHT NOW At the SAME TIME

    Winodws + Linux

    Match Made in By Rackspace Cloud

    Your domain will be part of the Cloud Sites by Rackspace Cloud using True Hybrid technology to seamlessly combine Linux and Windows technologies–even on the same website

    PHP +  ASP + Python + HTML

    Combination Theory

    On your Cloud Sites account, you can have PHP, ASP, HTML, Python, and Perl pages all peacefully sharing the same directory.

    True Hybrid is the best server technologies from both sides of the fence, fused together in a way that just has to be seen to be believed. Cloud Sites makes it possible to upload both ASP (popular in the Windows camp) and PHP files (popular among Linuxheads) to your website–gasp!–right in the same folder. In a rare display of cooperation, both types of pages work flawlessly, side by side, on the same website.

    Native Habitat

    Here’s the best part: it’s not just that both files work. It’s that both files work natively and automatically. Sure, it’s possible for Linux and Windows servers to sort of act like each other through clunky and unreliable emulation, but we have strong feelings about that: it’s a hack and it’s cheating. The fact is, any technology always works best in its native environment. And providing multiple, native environments is one area where the enterprise cluster powering Cloud Sites really shines. No matter what technologies you use to build your site–ASP.net, PHP, Perl, Python or a combination of all of them–rest assured that your site will have impressive, reliable, and native performance.

    An Impressive Balancing Act

    So how does it all happen? Right behind our firewalls (which keep your files ultra secure), we’ve employed quite possibly the most advanced load-balancing technologies ever. Going a step beyond traditional approaches, Rackspace actually checks the type of each file, sending files to the native clusters where they will perform the best. So every Windows-based page is served from a cluster built and optimized especially for Windows, and every Linux-based page is served from a cluster built and optimized especially for Linux.
