Hosting for both NA & EU

Hi LET.

Do some people here host a website for both EU & NA (US/CA, eventually some south american traffic as well) on only one server? I would consider that two servers (one in US or CA, other one in EU) with the dns servers sending visitors to the closest server would be the best way, but could it work well with one server?

If so, where would you put this server? I would think that north america / East coast would be better as EU would bring too much latency for visitors from, say, California.

Would OVH Canada be a good provider for both EU & NA? (They seem to have OK routes in America, and a decent network in the EU as well)... But.. how would that work for visitors from India?

I read that some people host with Cloudvider some websites where a big chuck of the traffic comes from the US. What about the west coast or South America? Is the latency bearable?

Thank!

don't buy what you don't need: you'll save money and will end up able to grab a quality VPS when really needed.

  • Why not just get something local? Brazil for example.

    Have a check for yourself, ping us and see if you’re happy with the latency :-).

    This is just way too complex for no good reason. Web site hosting should be fine with <100ms ping. If you're considering South America as well, get an East Coast US server and just one will be enough for all three. Or if India is more important, then use EU.

    Too expensive as there is not only 1 local need...

    Will do. Real world experience report wouldn't hurt though ;-)

    Maybe. East Coast (or maybe even EU) could probably do the trick just fine. Adding another location adds a layer of resilience though, as all traffic could be automatically moved to one location if the other is down (LowEndHA).

    Not really. G-Core open Sao Paulo Brazil location few days ago, from 4,50 EUR per month.
