What is VPS Hosting?
And how can VPS hosting services help your business
VPS hosting is designed to provide customers with a way of saving money without the loss of control or sacrifice of performance, security or flexibility. VPS hosting solutions can provide you with a tremendous value. While a dedicated server could result in service fees in excess of $200/month, the price of a VPS hosting plan is usually less than $100/month and in the same range as premium shared web hosting. VPS hosting and virtualization technology allows the cost of the server equipment, maintenance, software licenses, network connectivity and other equipment to be shared over a wider number of customers, making it more cost-effective.
A VPS can ensure better security than what is provided on any shared web hosting platform. Since your VPS host runs in its own completely isolated environment, you are far more protected from the instability and security issues caused by other customers on a shared hosting server.
As previously mentioned, VPS hosting provides you with guaranteed system resources, just like a dedicated server does. Unlike a shared hosting plan, you don't have to worry about not having access to the resources your website needs when it needs them. So VPS hosting provides you with a reliable and scalable hosting solution, giving your business room to grow.

What is Co-location?
Co-location is a means of storing your server equipment in our facility along with many other servers. Our facility is managed to provide reliable networking, power and security services. Most servers are rack mounted for effective use of space and circulation.
Colocation allows you to place your server machine in someone else's rack and share their bandwidth as your own. It generally costs more than standard Web hosting, but less than a comparable amount of bandwidth into your place of business. Once you have a machine set up, you take it physically to the location of the colocation provider and install it in their rack or you rent a server machine from the colocation provider. That company then provides an IP, bandwidth, and power to your server. Once it's up and running, you access it much like you would access a Web site on a hosting provider. The difference being that you own the hardware.
