Overselling is a when service providers make more commitments than resources they have. (When was the last time you saw an “unlimited” hard drive or network connection?) While overselling is at best a misleading shell-game and at worst outright fraud, many in the hosting services industry use the practice of overselling to increase margins while decreasing the quality of hosting service.

Your business needs web hosting for your website. Simply put, a business website hosting service allows you to rent space on a server, including the necessary hardware and services, such as html, application and database storage, which will enable you to host your web site or application. Along with the space you rent, you will also receive internet connectivity, which will allow people to view what you publish on your web site. Some web hosting companies provide other services for an additional fee, such as domain name registration, content design and creation, web analysis, content storage, ASP scripts, load balancing, SEO (search engine optimization), etc. While these "extras" are nice to have, if you're just starting out, server space and internet connectivity are your "must have's".
Server hosting is when you rent an entire web server from a dedicated provider, including hard disk storage space and technical support. Making the decision to outsource your server hosting is a smart business decision because it allows you and your employees the time to focus your energy on selling and growing the business, rather than on all the IT related issues that go hand in hand with maintaining your web site online. And whenever new technologies are introduced (and you know there will always be new technologies), you can rely on the IT experts you've hired to provide you with a summary of their advantages and disadvantages for your business.
Your business is growing fast and you're starting to feel the strain of having to not only manage your day-to-day business, but also the hassle of having to spend more and more time managing the computing end of the business as well. Your customers go to your website to buy your product or services, but without a functioning website, you can't conduct business. Maybe you started out being able to manage both the business and the website, but business is booming and the technical aspects of keeping your website/computing needs up-to-date are daunting. Web hosting from a reliable, non-oversold provider improves website reliability and performance.
With colocation hosting, an individual company is responsible for the server and the space it occupies, as well as internet access. It's less expensive than some other options because it allows many people to share the same data center. By choosing colocation service hosting you can select a large company with reliable BGP4 bandwidth and managed data center services, thereby enjoying the benefits of faster web site speeds. However, this option provides you with little technical support. Therefore, you would need your own administrator for configuring, deploying, and maintaining hardware, software and the operating system. All these critically important functions demand a particular level of IT expertise, as well as a significant amount of time. If you want the control of your server that colocation hosting brings, you must be willing to provide the IT expertise to go along with it.
Managed Server Hosting
In the case of managed hosting, you would lease your own web server that is not shared with anyone else; but you would not have overall control over it. This protects the integrity of all the web sites hosted on any particular server. Even though you don't have access to the entire site with managed server hosting, you are able to manage your data, and upload and remove files with a remote tool, such as an SFTP/SCP data loader, or via a private VPN connection to your workstation. If you need a secure, high-end infrastructure with optimal uptime, then managed server hosting might be right for you. Since you don't own the hardware, network or data center, you're not responsible for its upkeep, thereby lowering your operating expenses.
Server Colocation Services
Colocation services are a type of data center hosting that provides server hosting capabilites. This data center is used to outsource network traffic so your internal network is freed up. The advantage of choosing a server colocation service is that data is always available and in cases of weather-related disasters or fire, at least your data and network are safe. For client peace of mind, most server colocation service facilities also employ high levels of physical security, usually 24 hours a day. Biometric security recognition technology (such as fingerprint or retinal scanning) is also becoming more prevalent in the industry. Redundant bandwidth and power are other features of using a colocation data center for your servers.
