Choosing Colocation for your Web Hosting

ColocationLarger companies may have their own servers as part of their IT infrastructure, as well as a team of IT professionals to manage the technology.

Many smaller companies do not have the budget or space for large IT facilities but still want reliable back-up in this field.

These companies can turn to outsourced hosting services to provide technology back-up for them. They can choose anything from hosting to fully managed external web servers run through a dedicated internet connection.

Colocation is another option for those who want to outsource their IT. This allows you to share bandwidth with another company by placing your server machine in their rack.

Companies can set up their own server machine and take it to the colocation provider to be set up in their rack. Alternatively they can rent a server from the colocation company.

The colocation provider then supplies IP, bandwidth and power to the server. This service is more economical than using a comparable amount of bandwidth in your business. However, it costs more than standard web hosting.

Colocation takes the hassle and cost out of managing your own server. It also means you can rely on the expertise of another business to manage your server.

Several companies provide this kind of reliable colocation service. The Bunker is one such provider that have years of experience in providing outsourced IT services.

The Bunker can supply highly secure colocation services, offering shared server racks or dedicated secure server vaults. They can also provide complete management of servers so you can feel assured your website hosting is in good hands.
