    What is Colocation Hosting

    Colocation is a hosting option for small businesses who want the features of a large IT department without the costs. Colocation allows you to place your server machine in someone else's rack and share their bandwidth as your own. 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.

    Co-Location hosting is different from normal Shared, VPS or Dedicated server hosting. In all these hosting plans, the server hardware belongs to the hosting provider, you just rent some space or entire server by paying the applicable charges. You are not the owner of the server, you are just renting it. In Co-Location services, you own the server hardware and you keep server in some datacenter or with some hosting provider. Here you just need to pay the Rack charges, Power charges and Bandwidth charges. You are the owner of the server in Co-Location hosting.

    The biggest advantage of colocation is the cost for bandwidth.

    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. On the other hand, you're responsible for that server's upkeep.

    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.

    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.
