Colocation services and dedicated servers are the ideal hosting options for the users who do not want to share the resources with any other user and require full control over resources. In Dedicated server hosting environment, web hosting provider devotes an entire server to one particular client with the specified hardware, RAM, bandwidth, storage, memory, and resource configuration as per the needs and demand of the the user. While colocation is the service to colocate the user's own, self-purchased server/servers in the data center facility by allocating required space- cage cabinet or a whole room.
