A good crop starts with strong roots
RackNine Inc. is the result of the evolution of its former company, Couple Guys Consulting. Originally founded in February of 1997, Couple Guys Consulting grew as a leader in automated website management, developing the popular and widely-used SiteTools content-creation system.
Couple Guys Consulting entered the web hosting arena in 1999 after being unable to find a reliable method to outsource its hosting arrangements. A subsidiary (CGC Network) was formed to handle hosting needs of both Couple Guys Consulting’s web presence as well as needs of a quickly growing user base who were also unhappy with their current hosts. Hardware solutions were heavily researched, technical staff was hired and trained, and CGC Network’s experience in high quality dedicated – and shared – hosting began.
As a result CGC Network evolved to provide inexpensive and highly reliable consumer hosting services. New servers and infrastructure were laid, an aggressive package pricing was implemented, the newest and most advanced user management system ever created put in place, and together with a proven commitment to providing high quality service, made of our Internet services one of the fastest and most user-friendly systems available at the time.
RackNine Inc. was born!
Today, RackNine offers a wide selection of Internet-related services, such as a domain control system where domain names can be registered, transferred, and maintained, an automated website creation system designed to make it fast, easy and fun to create a website without spending a bundle, and customized software solutions and web applications designed both for the local market and global marketplace.
As an established leader in both personal and professional web identities, RackNine’s goal is to provide an excellent online experience to both you and your clients. By combining advanced in-house designed network technology with top quality hardware and intuitive administrative environments the company’s infrastructure is a powerful tool to maximize client-site availability.
RackNine focuses strongly on web development and server management / colocation, and currently serves many prominent Canadian businesses. Our specialty in high-availability applications are key to business infrastructure such as the courier industry where 5 minutes downtime means lost income. Providing that same accessibility to all clients has earned us a reputation of excellence among those who depend on RackNine most.

What RackNine is not
Services offered at RackNine are complete, functional hosting packages that provide a guaranteed service for a monthly or yearly fee. Services offered will never claim to be something they are not, ie:
- False Claims. Packages claiming deployment of services that are simply false or unethical are outside the offerings of this company. You can rest assured that the space provided for your internet presence is hosted on powerful RackNine servers which always carry more than enough megabytes of hard disk space and available bandwidth for increased traffic.
- Unrealistically low priced. RackNine offers high-quality hosting for a low price while at the same time ensuring every megabyte of webspace and traffic paid for is available to the user regardless of use. Webspace you pay for will not be “double-booked” with another client under the false expectation space usage will never reach high enough for either client to cause conflict. RackNine also reserves extra space for you in the event your requirements outstrip your current service package for fast and flexibile upgrading.
