shockersh Posted September 7, 2010 Report Share Posted September 7, 2010 So I have a question. Latency is the devil when it comes to internet speed. There is only so much you can do with Physics ya know... So my question is, if I am going to build a website for my customer who already has a lot of traffic, should I look for a hosting provider which is on the west coast, central US or east coast? My thoughts are this: West coast would be good for yeah, the west coast and Asia Pacific Central in Chicago or Dallas would be great for people on either coast of the USA and closer to the UK and Europe also. East coast would be slow for the western world yet faster for central, east coast and europe... Thoughts? Do any of you think about this when building a site? Should I worry about it? The reason I ask is because Dreamhost and Mediatemple are both in California however sites like myhosting.com is located in Toronto Canada which is on the East coast.... Thoughts?
