    Better and robust infrastructure (i.e. network, power, security, etc ...). The cost is the only down part.

    Advantages of Colocation Hosting Servers

    - The top advantages of using server colocation service are that it ensures high availability while lowering capital cost that enterprises have to spend on acquiring features like bandwidth, rack space, cooling and firewalls. Security of data is another huge advantage that companies can enjoy by using colocation services.

    - Second, it ensures more control over the server. The vendor only controls the physical aspect that you could do better without. This ensures that clients can customize all facets of the service, thus assuring more freedom than traditional hosting.

    - It spares the organization the trouble of maintaining server infra and reduces complexity of the business. Reduced workforce means the organization can be better managed and efficiently run.

    - Lastly, colocation allows you to expand your infrastructure without stressing too much on capital expenditure. Technically, the need for expanding infra grows every year and can as much as double in every five years.

    Disadvantages of Colocation Hosting Servers


    It can be sometimes hard to find a colocation provider near your corporate, especially when operating in remote areas. Though co-locating to a distant data center is always an option, it will create as much problems as it will solve. Travelling back and forth to such colocation sites can limit the time spent in office doing productive work. Though better than hosting in several aspects, colocation can cost more than managed hosting services in some cases.

    I am sure many have posted the advantages and disadvantages of Colocation hosting.
    I would give you a brief overview. Here is that.
    You are responsible for maintaining your own server, so you will need a tech-savvy person on staff. Overall, for a small to medium-sized business, the advantages of colocation hosting far outweigh the disadvantages because you are getting more bandwidth than you could afford on your own.

    Think it will be also reasonable to recommend Corespace and their colocation solutions - US.
    The technical support team deserves kudos for their neverending quest to satisfy the customer. Each ticket was responded to in a timely manner which was so quick I was amazed.
