Ensuring your website loads fast for your site visitors is at the top of nearly every web creator’s list. One of the primary considerations when choosing a provider is where their servers are located.

This is as the further away a site visitor is from the server, the higher the latency (delay) there will be due to the distance the command has to travel which gives the appearance of the site being slow to load.

This delay can be tested through online tools such as Wonder Network – Global Ping statistics where you can type in your hosting location and locations of your site’s key audiences to find the most ideal server location.

An example of this is a website owner having a website hosted in Sydney Australia. For website visitors within Australia and even neighboring New Zealand the website will be snappy, however site website visitors from London or the United States some 17,000km away will experience a ~250ms (quarter of a second) delay for every page load. Ideally you want to keep latency below 100ms.
