In an industry with many different web hosting solutions, colocation stands out because of the level of control it provides to data center clients. Like traditional web hosts, colocation providers supply security, power, storage, and other essential amenities for their client’s servers. But unlike shared hosting or cloud-based hosting, clients have full ownership of their servers. They can customize server hardware and software to their heart’s content. However, this also means that clients are responsible for providing their own servers. They cannot use the servers owned by the data center to host their website.
Colocation clients are essentially renting space in a data center, as opposed to paying for web hosting. In light of this, colocation is ideal for businesses that store their servers in their offices. Many companies find that servers take up a lot of office space and require too many employees and resources to secure and maintain. If you’d rather focus on other aspects of your business, you might want to consider outsourcing server storage to a colocation provider.
