  • Is your servers' speed geographically-influenced?

    I've heard that the server speed can be geographically-influenced on some American hosting companies. So much that users from Australia or Asia can barely access the websites at peak hours.

    Seeing how the eUKhost servers are located in the UK, I was wondering if there is any chance for my site to have troubles with traffic from other continents...

    Its true that the servers geo-location plays an important role in the delivery time of the requests made to your website, but it definitely doesn't take so long that it hungs up. If your site is hosted at a good server having enough resources, the delay time wouldn't exceed too much. In case of Eukhost their servers are connected to the Internet with highly redundant network through multiple Gigabit backbones having multiple peering with other networks. You might want to take a look at their UK Data Center Moreover, no matter what you do, there would always be some delay in serving the requests made to your site from distant locations.

      I agree with Matt B. You really won't have any issues with connecting to the servers in other nations. The idea that people in Australia and Asia cannot even access the site is pretty far fetched to me.
