    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.

    Colocated hosting provider is responsible for the security and upkeep of the facility, so that the space, power and bandwidth that they provide you are not compromised. As you can see, colocation is much more of a hands-on, do-it-yourself solution, as opposed to managed hosting. A colocation provider will rent out space in a data centre in which customers can install their equipment, but will also provide the power, bandwidth, IP address and cooling systems that the customer will require in order to successfully deploy their server.

    @kaufenpreis you have explained the concept of colocation beautifully. I have only one question that if I live outside USA and want to avail colocation service, is that possible? Can i order server from internet and the thing can be shipped to data centre and they install it for me. Or the procedure is all different from what I'm thinking.

    Colocation hosting is the housing privately owned servers and networking equipment in a third party data center. With colocation hosting, you can place your server hardware in some other company's rack and then share the bandwidth.

    Colocation is a hosting option for small businesses who want the features of a large IT department without the costs. It is the smart and best way in some companies to handle their business resources with more efficient ways.

    Colocation is also known as 'co-location' or 'colo' is the practice of housing privately-owned servers and network equipment in the third party data centre.Instead of keeping servers in-house, in offices or at a private data centre,companies can choose to co-locate their equipment by renting space in a co-location centre.
    A co-location provider will rent out space in a data centre where customers can install their equipment but also access scale economics, advanced infrastructure, greater bandwidth, lower latency, specialist services and systems, constant security, and a whole host of additional advantages.

    Colocation facilities like RACKBANK work as a type of data center that rents equipment space and bandwidth to companies and businesses that need a network service provider at a reasonable cost. Businesses could spend a small fortune creating a private infrastructure, but by tapping into colocation facilities, those same businesses can rent the services they need without having to create the communications system themselves.

    Colocation - the moving or placing things together, sometimes implying a proper order. This term derived from collocation and often spelled "co-location", is used to mean the provision of space for a customer's telecommunications or computer equipment at the service provider's premises. For example, a Web site owner could place the site's own computer servers on the premises of the Internet service provider (ISP). Or an ISP could place its network routers on the premises of the company offering switching services with other ISPs. Businesses often colocate their equipment with a service provider in order to take advantage of higher bandwidth availability and backup power.

    A colocation (colo) is a data center facility in which a business can rent space for servers and other computing hardware. Typically, a colo provides the building, cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security while the customer provides servers and storage.
