    Hosting where you own the hardware, but you rent space in a data center (or colocation facility) for Internet connectivity and networking.

    Colocation is a hosting option for small businesses who want the features of a large IT department without the costs.

    i think colocation hosting is much like renting a house for your server.

    Colocation hosting is much like renting a house for your server. The hosting service provider provides you with a storage space, electricity, internet connection, cooling, and security for your machine or other hardware.

    Colocation allows you to place your server machine in someone else's rack and share their bandwidth as your own.

    So colocation is more expensive than managed webhosting, and your physical access to your equipment is limited by the datacenter’s business hours and its physical distance from you. It is imperative to choose a colocation host that is reasonably nearby, and there will be special considerations if there is a possibility of the business moving. Depending on how often you access the equipment, increased distance will greatly affect the value of the current service agreement. There is also the option to pay the datacenter to manage the equipment, but that requires significant additional costs.

    Nevertheless, there are very real advantages to colocation, and in the right situation, these advantages can greatly outweigh the disadvantages discussed above. Perhaps the biggest advantage is bandwidth and associated costs. The best colocation datacenters have multiple backbones with redundancies that allow for extremely reliable, high-speed connections. Since the client only pays for usage, this provides all the advantage of a T1 connection without the vast overhead.

    In addition, colocation datacenters tend to offer power protection that is unrivaled save by the largest corporate facilities. Power services include redundant power lines, onsite backup generators and multihomed networks. Furthermore, colocation facilities have specialists on site and a stock of spare parts so that when failure does occur, they can rectify it quickly. This allows for a true guarantee of 99.99 percent uptime or higher, which is often promised but not realistic in a managed environment.

    Moreover, a colocation service can provide much greater security than the typical office environment or managed solution can. A building suitable to house a colocation facility will have utmost protection against forced entry, unauthorized access, fire and natural disasters. Your equipment in particular is locked in a cage that only you and personnel that you approve can access. A colocation service will also provide firewalls, intrusion-detection mechanisms and other network security measures. There is also the advantage of there being no direct association between who owns the equipment and where it is stored.

    The question remains, is colocation right for you? As a rule of thumb, colocation tends to be the right option for the business that has outgrown managed webhosting but is not yet large enough to make in-house webhosting and a dedicated IT department practical. Think of colocation as a compromise between managed and in-house webhosting. What does outgrowing managed hosting mean? Managed webhosting tends to force you to think within the narrow preconceptions of the industry. Once this narrowness begins to interfere with your vision, you have outgrown it.

    Colocation hosting service providers have data centers whose circuitry can supply ample power to hundreds of web servers. Furthermore, they have back up power systems and generators to continue powering the web servers for several days in case there is a power outage.

    wow, that is something great and informative knowledge for me. It means we cannot really host in other locations or how we can transfer our hardware somewhere else and again if you want to relocate or change it, then transportation could be a big issue.

    Colocation refers to the practice of housing your servers and devices into a proficient datacenter in order to access economies of scale, stable security, specialist services and system. Nowadays, technologies become wide-ranging and complicated, and private datacenter becomes commercially and practically illogical.
