Colocation is buying rackspace, electricity and connectivity from a colo hosting provider.
It has benefits over dedicated hosting services for a long-term project only, since you are supposed to invest into hardware from the very start, colo services can be bought on month-to-month basis.

So I suggest starting and developing your project on a vps or dedicated server and then shifting to colo.

Also do remember to include the support for hardware cost. You have to maintain the spares for the dedicated servers if you want replacements to be done in case of hardware failure.
You also will be liable to pay remote hands charges for any DC work if you can't access the colo location. Its a very costly method to start a project unless you live near a DC or its accessible in a short duration of time.

Colocation is where you place your own server in a data center facility and the data center hosts your servers, and you only pay for space, bandwidth, and power usage.

I covered this topic on a blog that I administered for my previous employer (a colocation, managed hosting, and self-managed hosting provider), hopefully you can find some useful information from it:

So what exactly is colocation? Or is it collocation? Wait, maybe it’s co-location. Let’s start by explaining what any of the before-mentioned means.

“Provision of space for a customer’s telecommunications equipment on the service provider’s premises.”

“Placement of your own server(s) and/or your network equipment in an Internet data center or colocation facility along with hundreds of others servers. The Data Center is managed to provide reliable networking, power, connectivity and security services. You can access you machines by going to the facility at any time.”

Colocation has several advantages for the customer:

* High speed connections via multiple carriers to prevent downtime

* Guaranteed power supply incorporating battery UPS for short term combined with an on site diesel generator and sub-station for extended outages

* Servers can be installed and online immediately

* Additional servers can be easily added as your needs grow

* All services are monitored by network engineers 24 x 7

* Colocation facility uses electronic access security & security guards to protect your equipment

So when searching for a provider to handle your colocation needs, what is the proper term to use in your searches that will give you correct search results? Colocation, collocation, or co-location? Data Center Map (http://www.datacentermap.com/blog/co...-terms-65.html) has created a great article to break down which term is most widely used by Google, Industry leaders, large providers, and media. Turns out that “colocation” is definitely the most widely used term and therefore the best term to be using if you want to reach the majority of your target group.

For a complete breakdown including graphs, check out the article on Data Center Map.

Seems like everyone else has covered most of what you should know.
However, Colocation is a pretty expensive service, so make your decision wisely.

Colocation in a simpler words is locating you IT infrastructure to the Data center. Where in you are leasing a rackspace where your IT infrastructure will be kept in a secured and well monitored infrastructure.

A lot of people prefer to Colo their servers because they do not want to pay a monthly fee to 'rent' a server when they can just buy it themselves and house it in a DC. Obviously, in Colo situations, you will pay a premium on BW, power, rack space and support. Most hosting providers will also offer Colo.
