DO NOT DO IT!
Never give up control of your web site like that. They can do whatever they want!
The top companies in the SEO business would think requiring you to move to their servers is ridiculous and so do I!
They can do anything with a simple log in to your existing account.... one you can lock them out if ever needed!
PS: I just reread your post, most of what they have told you are lies, so RUN. We charge what they want per month for an entire year and so do most on here offering hosting.
Over priced, but decent support! We had tie up with them for 2 years
The issue here is NOT Rackspace, they are a great company although our competition, The issue here is the SEO company lying to you and gaining too much control over something they do not need to control!
Thanks guys. They've agreed for me to self host. They are saying the prefer clients to use their servers as they have had loads of problems with crap hosts in the past but they've made an exception because of my concerns about control.
They are not a micky mouse agency, their clients include bbc (for a microsite) and a channel 4 side project (though they don't host those).
They are a full service agency, not just seo, which I need as I am launching a brand.
