What is Colocation?


Can’t satisfy your hosting options?

But your budget is not enough to afford to have the Internet infrastructure to host your own web servers and have a team of IT professionals?

Colocation might be a good option for your businesses!

What is Colocation?

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.

One of the biggest advantage of colocation is the cost. For the same price of using limited bandwidth business grade DSL line, a single server can be placed in colocation facility that provides higher bandwidth speeds and better redundancy for the network connections.

Also, colocation facilities have better outage protection, which will provide backup power to protect against any type of outage situation.

However, you might be having hard time finding colocation providers. You probably want to find the provider near your office or home, but unless you live near a large city with major network hubs, chances are unlikely you will find many colocation options. Even though you find colocation provider near you, physical access to your server can be difficult and limited.
