Colocation

Data center colocation allows a small or mid-sized business to save money by storing and running parts of its IT infrastructure off-site instead of building and maintaining a large dedicated data center in-house. For instance, a start-up business might colocate its servers. In such a scenario, the servers are owned by the business but are colocated to save money in overhead costs incurred by things like cooling, physical security or insurance. Some colocation providers like the pestregistry.com also provide technical support for additional fees.
