Do you have Linux skills and want to manage your web space or server yourself, customising them to suit your needs? If so, our root server or vServer (VPS) are the solution you are looking for!

We can offer you a powerful, KVM-based root server with guaranteed levels of RAM and CPU resources. Thanks to KVM, our root server / vServer (VPS) solutions offer all the functionality of a dedicated server. Other features, such the possibility of creating snapshots or managing the server remotely via a VNC console, offer you a wide range of deployment options. Since brand-name hardware is used as standard, combined with redundant uplinks and a redundant power supply, our root server / vServer (VPS) solutions offer optimum availability for professional hosting requirements.
Decide for yourself which operating system and management system you wish to use deploy to your root server. With access via SSH and browser-based VNC, you can configure server services to suit your needs and install the software that you require. Our SCP (Server Control Panel) software lets you issue start, stop and reboot commands, and restore images. The SCP also provides you with comprehensive traffic statistics, the option of inserting a CD-ROM or DVD, and the ability to create snapshots from the hard disks used by your root server. The SCP hugely simplifies the task of managing your root server.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a root server?
A root server is a server where you have full administrative access (root access). You receive clearly defined resources that are available to your server. You can run individual system software and have complete administrative control. A root server therefore requires knowledge of the administration of server systems.
What can I do with a root server?
Root servers are ideal for store solutions, large websites, mobile app services or as email servers for companies and private individuals with larger projects. This allows you to operate with maximum flexibility, security and quality with maximum performance.
What is the difference between a dedicated server, a root server and a VPS?
A dedicated server offers exclusive access to a physical server for your applications, while a root server also provides full root access to the operating system. The root server is suitable for more experienced administrators who prefer full control. With a VPS, on the other hand, you get virtual CPU cores. You can find an overview of the differences between VPS and root servers at netcup here.
Where is the location of my root server?
At netcup, we offer you Vienna or Nuremberg as the location for your root server. You can select the location when purchasing your server. The designation "VIE" or "NUE" means that the physical location of the server is in the data center in Vienna (Wien) or Nuremberg (Nürnberg). The selection "no preference" means that the root server is hosted at one of the two locations, depending on available capacity.
What are the advantages of a root server?
Overall, using a root server provides the flexibility, performance and control required for demanding Internet applications and services.
  1. Complete control: As the operator of a root server, you have full control over the configuration, resource allocation, and security guidelines. This allows you to adapt the server environment to your specific requirements and react flexibly to changes.
  2. High performance: Root servers are often operated on high-performance hardware that enables fast data processing and transfer. This is particularly important for applications that have high computing power and bandwidth requirements, such as large databases, e-commerce websites, or multimedia streaming services.
  3. Customizability: With a root server, you can customize the operating system environment and software to your liking. This allows you to install and configure specific applications or services that are optimized for your requirements.
  4. Data protection and security: By managing your own root server, you can implement the security measures that meet your data protection and security requirements. You have control over access to the server and can implement measures such as firewalls, encryption, and regular security updates.
  5. Independence from third-party providers: With your own root server, you are not dependent on third-party providers to manage your Internet infrastructure. You have full control over your server environment and are not dependent on the guidelines or restrictions of other companies.
  6. Development freedom: For developers, a root server offers maximum freedom in the development and provision of applications.You can use different programming languages, frameworks and libraries and adapt the server environment as required to develop innovative solutions.
