Did you know that the location of the VPS you choose is one of the most important decisions you will make? That isn't to say things like cost and uptime are not important as well, but if you choose to use a virtual private server in the wrong location, it could have consequences for your experience and, ultimately, your productivity.
On this page, we'll walk you through the reasons why VPS location are critical to the user experience and the work we do to provide VPS hosting from key locations around the globe. Don't underestimate the importance of choosing the right location for your VPS - it could have a make-or-break impact on your success.
With multiple datacenters around the world you can pick your VPS at the location you want. Latency is one of the most important things when it comes to a server. The closer you are to a datacenter, the faster the connection is. Here you can see all datacenters and specifications to pick the one you prefer!
Shorter distances and less traffic can have a big effect on latency. For example, if a VPS datacentre is located in London, it will work well for users based in London, but the results will not be so good for users in Amsterdam (incidentally, we have datacentres in both of these cities). This isn't anything to do with the quality of the server itself; it's all about the physical distance. Distance from the server is the number one cause of latency issues, and latency is a key factor of what users consider to be 'performance'.
By latency, we are talking about the time that passes between a user sending a command to the server and the response coming back from the server. If you are within 50 miles of the datacentre, the response times will usually be less than 10 milliseconds. Further than that, and the response time can drift to 100+ milliseconds and this has a huge impact on the customer experience.
We have a large number of datacentres in an ever-increasing number of locations around the globe. We also give our customers the ability to choose their virtual private server. This means we can offer the best experience for our customers in accordance with their needs and priorities.
Our datacentres are strategically positioned to serve the greatest number of people in hotspots across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Our VPS hosting locations are in prime position to serve millions of customers with industry-leading latency and other performance characteristics. We are always looking to expand into new territories in order to offer our hosting services to more people who need them.
We strongly advise choosing the datacentre closest to you if you wish to experience minimal latency when you use your VPS. If you are located in the same city as one, you are likely to get the best possible experience from it, but as long as you are not thousands of miles away then you should be able to enjoy a quality experience with all the benefits our service offers.
Take a look at our current locations to see which would be the best for your location.
One of our top-priorities is to roll out more datacenters across the globe. There’ll be more to come in the near-future. Watch this page and stay updated.
VPSServer.com is already a global frontrunner in the VPS hosting industry, but we recognise that there is a growing need for datacentres close to users in an increasing number of territories. We want to ensure the greatest possible number of people are able to access close-proximity virtual private servers in order to experience excellent performance and be as productive as they can.
This is why we are committed to identifying the best global locations for new datacentres and expanding our reach where it is needed. If you feel that none of our locations are right for you at this point, this page is the place to watch for updates when new locations are announced.
With packages designed to accommodate all budgets and requirements, and an ever-increasing arsenal of datacentres around the world, it's no wonder our service is emerging as a top choice for discerning users. VPS hosting is one of the best ways for businesses of all sizes to house their data and applications. To minimise costly downtime, some experts advise that you house mission-critical workloads in a datacentre somewhere further away if your region is prone to issues like power outages and natural disasters.
In any case, we understand the great deal of trust that you put in us when you place your applications and data in our hands, and that is something we never take lightly.
