    Colocation allows you to place your server machine in someone else's rack and share their bandwidth as your own. It generally costs more than standard Web hosting, but less than a comparable amount of bandwidth into your place of business. Once you have a machine set up, you take it physically to the location of the colocation provider and install it in their rack or you rent a server machine from the colocation provider. That company then provides an IP, bandwidth, and power to your server. Once it's up and running, you access it much like you would access a Web site on a hosting provider. The difference being that you own the hardware.

    If you own a server and want to connect to the Internet, there are companies that will handle the connection for you. This service is known as colocation.

    I think that you need to do a deep search on Colocation hosting in Wikipedia - it contains much useful information.

    Most hosting providers will also offer Colo services. Although, it is important to understand that they need to be reimbursed for power, BW and rackspace so it is not always a cheaper option than getting a dedicated server.

    Colocation Hosting - The perfect solution for your servers to thrive

    Your computer system is the lifeblood of your company and chances are you'd be lost without it. As your business grows, so does your system, and it becomes increasingly important to make sure your systems and servers are well looked after. It's not often feasible to have your own data centre though, and in most cases it's too expensive.

    Colocation clients purchase, manage and maintain their own equipment, including servers, switches, etc. The data center provides the facility, cabinet space, redundant power, BGP bandwidth, climate controlled environment and security. The amount of cabinet space you require will depend on how many racks youíll need. Each rack can normally house 42U of rack space, where 1U of space equates to 1.75 inches in height.

    Colocation Pros:

    If youíre in close geographical proximity to your data center, you can work on your own equipment (upgrades, etc.) avoiding the cost of outsourced parts and labor.

    As you grow, savings from colocation grow as well.

    As a rule, itís generally less expensive when compared to unmanaged dedicated.

    Your fixed assets show on your balance sheet, indicating higher net worth (important to banks and potential customers).

    If youíre using accrual accounting, youíll be able to show profitability on your income statement by spreading expenses over three to five years (depreciation).

    Colocating the server gives you the greatest flexibility. You get to choose the hardware configuration of the server and the software that goes on it.

The hosting company maintains the connection to the Internet and deals with environmental details such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), fire controls, and air conditioning.

    It's important that the datacenter you colocate in has redundant system (meaning that electrical, cooling etc are designed so that one point of a failure won't take out the entire system.

    What is Colocation hosting?

    Colocation is where you place your own server in a data center facility and the data center hosts your servers, and you only pay for space, bandwidth, and power usage.
