    Colocation hosting is a highly secure data center facility where businesses can purchase equipment, servers, storage space, and bandwidth from the facility.

    A data centre service called colocation (colo) allows a company or server owner to rent physical space for their servers and other equipment.The hosting environment generally offers security, cooling, power, bandwidth, and physical protection for the facility, while the client provides physical servers and all materials needed.

    Dedicated server hosting and Colocation services are two very common terms referred by webmasters. Both these types of services are usually preferred by large organizations and company to carry out their mission critical project .Both share affinity from an enterprise aspect. The only major difference in these two is that, Faithful servers offered by web hosting companies are in hand by the host. Whereas, in Colocation services, the server hardware is owned by the company/organizations/enterprises who have their website/s and other data placed onto the servers.

    Dedicated servers gives you the liberty to lease or own the entire server whereas, colocation is the process which involves locating your servers in the third party data center in order to provide a more secured and managed infrastructure.

    In contrast to dedicated servers, which allow you to lease or own the whole server, data centre colocation services are often offered by the data centre service providers.

    Colocation means taking your physical server and putting it in a rack in a data center. You either share a rack or rent an entire rack for yourself. The colocation partner then provides internet connectivity, network infrastructure, and power backups.

    Dedicated hosting solutions mean that you either buy or lease physical servers which then serve the purpose you need. Co-location is also dedicated hosting but specifically means your hardware. Dedicated hosting is often leased servers that a provider sets up in their datacenter to which you then have access.
