Who should choose a Co-Located Server?
Co-Located Servers are designed for companies that have the in-house capability to manage a web server but need enhanced network capacity and performance. Co-Located Servers eliminate the need to design and build a private infrastructure while providing you with direct backbone connectivity, redundancy and network monitoring.
Why choose Co-Located Server Hosting instead of Virtual or Shared Hosting?
In the Internet business world, a Web site is only as good as the server it's hosted on. Many high-profile businesses with technologically complex Web sites fall into the dark hole of a "virtual server," only to realize that they are stuck with its limited capabilities due to the shared environment. While we keep our virtual servers lightly loaded, a Co-Located solution will offer unrivaled control and flexibility. You have the ability to update you server at any time to meet your needs.
What can I do with a Co-Located Server?
You can deploy sophisticated applications, like databases, streaming media servers, hi-end email solutions and more. You also have the ability to host multiple sites and domains on one machine creating an instant virtual hosting company.
A Co-Located Server allows for faster access to your information and services and provides you with greater flexibility in adding advanced web, database, and e-commerce applications. Other applications such as e-mail servers, message boards, chat software, and streaming services can be easily installed on your own server.
