Hiya webhostingtalk members, I'm new to colo and thus have some queries which hopefully members here could give me answer to it. Is there any colo services on certain datacenter that allows me to send only a server and host it on there? (If there is, anyone know if any datacenter in SG [Singapore] allows that?) I'll be only hosting a website on it, and this way will probably save me more money than buying a dedicated server.
Most companies will offer you a space for just one server. I'm not sure of any near you but many will allow you to ship them the server and they will install it in the rack. Also be aware that if there are any hardware problems you'll have to deal with them!
Thanks for your reply, what I plan of is maybe I could hook up some host that's interested in buying a rack, then we could split the money out as I only need a space. This will probably save me more money?
I would be looking at lease-to-own servers, if you're located far away from datacenters - this is best long term solution. You'd be owning the server after the contract period and then only be paying for rackspace, power and bandwidth.
