Those who decide to rent a Root Server have full control over their IT or data and systems at all times, are not dependent on the hosting provider for server management and enjoy a great deal of flexibility.

Thanks to root access, you can access all files and directories yourself, install applications independently, carry out individual configurations and edit system files.

Of course, our technical support is at your side 24/7. If you do not want to get into the configuration of your server yourself or do not want to invest the time for this, we will gladly take care of the administration of your Root Server for you within the framework of Managed Hosting.

The servers in our certified data centers are protected with Voxility's particularly powerful and effective DDoS protection, so that attacks are already detected and repelled before they would reach the data centers.

Voxility's DDoS protection is included free of charge in the hosting offer for all Keyweb customers.

Security of the IT infrastructure & data protection according to GDPR

The root servers you rent from Keyweb are operated in our own TÜV-certified high-speed data center in Thuringia – the centre of Germany. A powerful infrastructure, the best possible security standards and the multiple redundant network connection guarantee a high level of reliability and data security.

Rent the right Root Server – for your project

Whether you should rent a Virtual or Dedicated Root Server depends entirely on your project requirements.

Root Virtual Servers share dedicated resources, with performance-critical areas such as RAM and disk space guaranteed. With a Root Dedicated Server, you have your very own dedicated physical machine. Custom-Made Servers are individually configured and built Dedicated Servers based on your wishes.

You are sure to find some tips for this in our vServer guide.
