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.

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
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.
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.
