I believe as well that choosing the closest location is important, but someone from HostAdvice.com said that it's not important at all :crazy:

It's true but also is false, If you choose a local hosting for your websites and you are targeting your audience there then it is better but nowadays CDNs helped decreasing the important roles of server location more.

Depends entirely what you're doing. Everyone here is completely correct, that you're looking for the closest geographical location to you to get the smallest possible ping times. However, you're likely to find better deals if you shop globally.

The server location only affects latency for the users. It is good if you have a targeted region in mind. You would want to offer the best loading times to your use but the content is more important in my opinion.

Well the best answer to that question is yes and no.What affects the internet connection of your website is the speed and strength of the signal sent to your servers.You should make sure your internet providers are reliable i.e the data input and output speed is high.The distance does not really affect anything as long as there are no interference from foreign signals and also the quality of said servers is top notch.

Distance may affect connectivity when interference arises from somewhere in the middle of the servers and interbnet service providers.
