About Us

The origins of root S.A. go back to its founders' college and university time. Four friends from different branches and backgrounds gathered in order to combine their knowledge and apply it from theory into real life. By them, the company root eSolutions s.à r.l. was founded in 2003 and has so far successfully established itself on the market. The vision to provide new services and solutions that fit the needs and budget of every individual and company became very soon reality and has rapidly become our mission. Today, we are a leading internet backbone and co-location provider specialized in dedicated servers, co-location and web hosting.
LU-CIX
In 2009 the Luxembourg commercial internet exchange was founded and root S.A., as Luxembourg's busiest content provider, is one of the founding members and a very important partner for LU-CIX. Today, root S.A. is a member of the LU-CIX Management GIE.
