Reclaim Hosting / Reclaim Cloud / Rockaway Hosting Overview:

Reclaim Hosting provides educators and institutions with an easy way to offer their students domains and web hosting that they own and control. Our goal is to make the process of offering a flexible web space and domain name for students as easy as possible and giving them the support they need to make it all happen.

Reclaim Cloud is the newest product offering from Reclaim Hosting. This scalable, containerized infrastructure offers a wide range of opportunities for everyone from individuals who want to easily run a project with a Docker container in the wild to institutions that want to move their infrastructure to a seamlessly scalable solution in which you only pay for usage rather than some imagined worst case scenario.

Rockaway Hosting is our sister web hosting service focused on providing the perfect venue for a site, whether a small personal blog or a mission-critical business enterprise. Rockaway was born out of the related, but distinct Reclaim Hosting which is focused on supporting faculty and students in higher education and counts over 15,000 customers to date. The increased interest in hosting with us from a broader, non-academic community resulted in Rockaway Hosting.
