Definitions for "Co-located hosting"
Co-located hosting involves the Webmaster providing their own server, which is typically housed in a data center or facility that links it to the Internet. The Webmaster usually pays the data center a fee to house the server. This can be a cheaper arrangement than dedicated hosting for sites that receive a lot of traffic.
Services that locate your server in a dedicated facility such as a data center, and provide high speed Internet connections, security, climate control, backup power, and technical support. This differs from dedicated server hosting packages, in that the client owns and controls the server, and the software on it.
This hosting option gives webmasters complete control over their server. You are responsible for providing the physical hardware and network administration; the hosting company will provide you with the rack space and Internet connection.
