What is colocation?
Colocation allows your or your company to place servers in someone else's rack space and share their bandwidth as your own. It costs more than standard Shared Web hosting, but less than a comparable amount of bandwidth into your place of business. Once you have a machine set up, you take it physically to the location of the colocation provider and install it in their rack or you rent a server machine from the colocation provider. That company then provides an IP, bandwidth, and power to your server. Once it's up and running, you access it much like you would access a Web site on a hosting provider. The difference being that you own the hardware. A good company we alway go with for colocation servers is http://www.wanplanet.com
