About us

Passionate and responsible.
This is who we are.
This is Keyweb.

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our services.

The history of our company began in the late 90s with the development of the Internet and the web hosting industry. Since 1997, long-term vision, quality awareness and excellent service have been the cornerstones of our success.

We often remember the times when our company consisted of a small team managing an enterprise from 2 small office buildings. For reasons of economy, our servers were located in the USA at that time. But pretty soon it became clear to us that this model in the long term and the growing number of servers and clients is associated with more risks than benefits. Therefore, in 2000, despite the economic crisis, it was decided to switch to our own infrastructure with accommodation in Germany.

As time has shown, this decision was correct. As one of the few providers in Germany, we independently developed, planned and eventually built our data centers. In 2004, the first Keyweb data center was ready, and after 3 years the construction of the second one was completed, and recently we opened the third one. Our data centers meet the highest security standards, are checked by technical supervision and are monitored and controlled around the clock.

The combination of quality equipment, direct customer contact and reliable support has made Keyweb a real gem in the web hosting world and has grown its customer base thanks to our customer recommendations and positive reputation. We have evolved further and been innovators in many aspects that are now standards in the hosting market.

We were not the first to launch our own server. But we were among the first to produce our own machines. Undoubtedly, it was more expensive than buying ready-made servers, but we wanted more: control over all processes for the benefit of our customers. Over 10,000 have been collected since then. Today, Keyweb AG's head office in Erfurt, Germany covers 1,500 m² and employs 35 people. We have three data centers and serve private and corporate clients around the world.

Convince yourself of the quality of our services! We do not strive to be the biggest provider, our goal is to be the best. To do this, we follow non-standard paths and often abandon mechanisms familiar to the industry - we take risks, and this is what our customers value in us, which, in our opinion, explains their trust from the company's origins to the present day. The same goes for our employees, and that's probably the point - we know each other. And you can trust us with your data.

With best wishes

Keyweb AG
