Site: is the place where data is backup-ed on drives for lateral use in case of disaster.

Cold Site: Process of bringing servers back in production take time due to lack of facilities like electricity, and network connectivity. But backup is there, that could be used to bring systems back.

Warm Site: is the one with basic facilities which are less than actual production environment. Like electricity, backup generator, network connectivity are there, but speed, volume of facilities slow, allowing only necessary operations.

Hot Site: is exact replica of production environment. Very less down time.
