Colocation or Collocation?

Jan 13, 2011   //   by admin   //   Blog, Data Centers, Front-Page  //  Comments Off

Why so many different spellings?

Unfortunately in the data center industry their has been a debate on which spelling is the correct spelling for colocation. Some professionals, like lawyers seem to think that the collocation spelling is the correct spelling. This is why our contracts use the collocation spelling.

If we look at Google searches on the keyword terms for colocation and collocation, the general public seems to use both colocation and collocation evenly. This means to get the best visibility for our site we have to use the two spellings throughout our site. So hopefully our liberal use of both spellings doesn’t distract you from reading about our excellent managed services offerings.
