    The biggest advantage of colocation is the cost for bandwidth. For example, a low cost limited bandwidth business grade DSL line generally costs around $150 to $200, but for the same price or less a single server can be placed in a colocation facility that provides higher bandwidth speeds and better redundancy for the network connections. These savings can be even greater if the only dedicated network access is a more expensive full or fractional T1 lines.

    Colocation provides 24/7-365 electricity, cooling, power, bandwidth and maintenance. The fact that it comes with all this 3 is really good.

    What is colocation?
    Colocation is basically sharing one location with another. Colocation works by placing your server in someone else’s rack and share bandwidths. This is a cost effective way of setting up your own hosting which is perfect for small businesses that are starting on their online marketing strategy.

    What are the advantages of colocation?
    First, colocated servers normally cost less than paying for your own bandwidth. Colocated servers can share the bandwidth with a colocation provider and share the cost of using bandwidth.

    Second, because you own the hardware and you are generally sharing only electric power and bandwidth, you can have a free hand on your server and can upgrade it every time you want.

    Third, one can have the assistance of colocation providers to maintain and run your server if you don’t have the time and personnel to do for an extra payment. One can also reply on colocation providers to provide security on your machine every day.

    What are the disadvantages of colocation?
    First disadvantage is that colocation providers are relatively hard to locate. Colocation providers are normally located in cities and major hub for internet services, Colocation providers that are far from your home would relatively cost more due to the services and maintenance colocation providers will provide to keep your server in top shape.

    Second disadvantage is that because you are the one that owns your serve, you have all the responsibility in fixing it and upgrading it, unless you pay extra for maintenance.

    Third disadvantage is that colocation providers do not regularly change places or move out of town. This is cumbersome especially for businesses that tend to migrate into other places. One must either bring the machine when they move or hire maintenance crew to keep your server fit for service.
