    Colocation is a type of web hosting, where you can store you server at a Data Center. The server is owned by the customer but they then hire rack space where they store the server.
    ADVANTAGES:
    Cheaper
    Your server can be stored in a secure location
    You can have full control over your server
    You can can easily upgrade when necessary
    You can have a high amount of flexibility
    DISADVANTAGES:
    Expensive when compared to basic hosting
    The cost may change every month, depending on the bandwidth you have used.
    Need some expertise as you are responsible for the maintenance of your server
    Need to purchase your own equipment
    You need to purchase any updates yourself
