A few months ago I noticed that one of my clients websites seemed to be getting spikes of traffic. However with spikes in traffic most clients would report an increase in sales or business.

For years I setup my clients with shared hosting account with either HostMySite ( Hosting.com ) or Godaddy. I stayed clear of colocating for several reasons, cost, and what if it breaks.

Today was proud day for me. I colocated my first rack server in a datacenter. The guys at the datacenter were very helpful. If anyone is needing to colocate a server in Houston I highly recommend Acronoc.
