Servage GmbH is a German web hosting provider headquartered in Flensburg, Germany. The company is doing business as Servage Hosting.


Early years

The company was incorporated in 2004 by Steffan Sondermark Fallesen and later sold[1] to the publicly listed Swedish telecommunication firm Tele5 Voice Services AB for $3.5 million cash in May 2007[2] and left the company in October 2009[3].

During the first three years the company operated only an English version but in recent years German, Polish, Danish and Swedish versions are also offered. Company is now among the 15 largest[4] German web hosting providers.


Servage has been criticized for overselling its services in recent years to keep up with competition.[citation needed] There have also been large numbers of Servage customers reporting that their sites have been repeatedly hacked, resulting in malicious code being inserted into their web-pages[5] Servage claims that the issue is resolved by their new server operating system ServageOS.


Servage is operating network AS 29671[6] which interconnects to Versatel, Tiscali and Cogent Communications.

In an attempt to become fully Open Source powered Servage changed its entire network infrastructure to the Open Source routing platform GNU Zebra in 2007[7]. Prior to the change Servage had been using Cisco routers.


October 21, 2008 the company released a new customized Linux version (ServageOS)[8] for use on its server clusters. Most notable features is full process separation between customers and other similar security enhancements suitable for hosting environments.
