Further Information

Since you do not have to share the computing power with other customers, you are independent on the one hand but also benefit from a very good performance on the other hand.

The type of virtualization contributes to the performance, scalability and independence of our virtual servers.

So the entry-level version RVS M14 comes with the virtualization software OpenVZ, while the models RVS S14, RVS L14 and RVS G14 impress with the virtualization technology KVM (kernel-based virtual machine) and its outstanding performance. With KVM as a full virtualization, you have the added value to get full console access, to install your own kernels and to unrestrictedly choose your operating system and your own ISO images.

All vServer tariffs allow the use of all common content management systems such as Typo 3, Wordpress, Joomla! etc. as well as popular shop systems such as Shopware and Magento.


Additionally, you can choose between magnetic hard drives (HDD) and Solid State Disks (SSD) without extra costs to take advantage of the preferred qualities of each variant. Whatever disk architecture you prefer, there are no additional costs for you.

You can move your system to another server during operation, e.g. for the expansion or modernization of your site - without the drawbacks of downtime. Even hardware problems do not cause long downtimes for you.


The main advantages of a virtual server also include the low costs compared to physical servers.

A good vServer offers good value for money. The virtual servers from Keyweb not only offer excellent performance characteristics, an availability of at least 99%, high-quality and reliable hardware, but also professional assistance through our 24-hour support.


All virtual servers are operated in TÜV-certified, Keyweb own data centers in Germany and meet the highest standards of availability, security and protection. Germany as location promises you the highest international standard of data protection under German law.

Sustainability is not just a trend for us, because environmental protection is very important to us. But what does a virtual server have to do with it?

At Keyweb all servers are 100% powered by green electricity (KeyEco).

Setting up virtual servers additionally contributes to a better climate balance as multiple virtual servers are operated on one hardware, so the utilization of physical servers can be improved. Consequently less hardware servers are required, which reduces the cooling and energy consumption.

You can benefit from all these qualities of Keyweb with only 1 month minimum contract duration. Are you a faithful soul, just like us? Then make sure to get attractive discounts with selecting a longer pay period. Save up to 20% with KeyDiscount.


Also use our 24/7/365 support for free. There will always be a competent technician available for you via phone or ticket system.

Our Service Level Agreements guarantee you a high quality level of performance - by contract, open and transparent.


May it be that little extra? Our additional services complement your virtual server.

Book additional domains or integrate existing domains.

Protect your online store orders with SSL certificates.

Expand your backup storage with a KeyDisc.

Take advantage of our optional  Managed Hosting Service. It promises you a comprehensive, professional and individual care of your server systems at Keyweb.

What are the benefits of a Root Virtual Server?

  • Easy to use
  • Optimal process performance
  • more powerful than a webhosting solution

A virtual server is comparable with a web-hosting solution. But the virtual server is significantly more powerful. With the virtual server or vServer, you combine the advantages of a shared web hosting, with the performance advantages of a dedicated server. Easy to use, optimal process performance - this is what characterizes this server solution.

How does a virtual server work?

  • Using ressources of a hardware server
  • Division into virtual servers with software
  • Data protection similiar to Dedicated Server

A hardware server is divided into multiple virtual servers using a special software. Each virtual server gets its own operating system.

Therefore, on the one hand, resources of the hardware server can be be utilized more efficiently, on the other hand, it allows a very cost-effective operation of virtual servers.

However, you enjoy all the advantages of your own server regarding performance and data security.

Independent operating systems prevent data access from another (virtual) server, so that your data is similarly well protected as if on a dedicated server.

What differentiates Keyweb's vServers from others?

  • Install all applications
  • free configuration
  • Full root access
  • Flexible customization

In principle, a virtual server provides all the functionality of a normal server. As a customer of Keyweb you can install all required programs on the virtual server, freely configure your system and manage it with KeyHelp® or Odin® Plesk panel. So, for example, different users with different access rights can be created.

With our vServers you also have full root access and full administration rights, which give you freedom and flexibility to tailor the operating system and application software to your exact desires. At Keyweb you can freely choose your operating system. The individual configuration allows you to flexibly customize and use your personal virtual server according to your needs.
