When it comes to choosing a hosting solution, you may feel a little overwhelmed on how to choose the best service for your business needs. There are two common hosting types that businesses often struggle choosing between: Dedicated server vs Colocation.
The main difference between colocation and dedicated servers is that for colocation you rent a secured space in a in a data center facility with power, cooling, and connectivity, while retaining full ownership and complete control of your equipment, including physically maintaining the hardware.
With a dedicated server hosting, on the other hand, you are renting the server and hardware from a hosting provider. When renting a server, the provider in addition to being responsible for underlying infrastructure, is also responsible for any repairs to the hardware and providing customers with a base operating system installation that is remotely accessible. Additional options are available to outsource security and maintenance as well.
