Co-Location Hosting

When your network goes down, you lose opportunities and revenue, as well as your hard-won reputation and the trust of your customers. Avoid this nightmare by using Y2K ’s co-located services, and be certain that your business keeps running at full pace. The Y2K co-located hosting solution is secure, and offers high availability, ensuring you can always access your “mission-critical” servers. Single server, half rack and full rack co-location is available in our three state-of-the-art data centres, in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. And, connect to our high-speed fibre network from any of the major metros.

How It Works


Peace of mind

Enjoy the calm of knowing your servers are in a secure, high availability facility, with early smoke detection, advanced fire suppression, redundant power, and CCTV.

Outsourced savings

Access fully redundant, enterprise-class facilities at a fraction of the cost of building and maintaining your own data centre – and save on energy costs.

The full house service

Over and above the physical rack space, clients get IP addresses, a shared firewall option, a reboot service, and various bandwidth options.

Fully supported

Get 24/7 support and monitoring from a standalone support centre. We also offer optional service level agreements (SLAs) with automated notifications and reporting.
