Dedicated Servers vs. Colocation

Different needs, different challenges

Because we know every business has different needs and challenges, we offer both dedicated server hosting and colocation services. Despite both being viable hosting options, each addresses different business challenges. Whichever option you choose, rest assured your solution is only housed in our ISO-accredited, wholly-owned UK data centres.

Dedicated Servers

What is it?

As a dedicated server client you rent an entire dedicated server from us. We remain the owner of the physical server, but you get complete control over the content and build.

Why choose dedicated?

Dedicated server hosting is ideal for performing mission critical operations or for high volumes of traffic. It's also ideal if you don't want to, or don't have the finances to purchase a server outright.

What is it?

With colocation you rent space in our ISO-accredited UK-based data centres to securely house your IT hardware, whilst retaining full ownership and complete control.

Why choose colocation?

Colocation enables you to take advantage of high availability, greater connectivity, increased scalability and heightened security that is beyond the means of most companies to create in-house.
