When I'm purchasing VPS plan, I have chosen Seattle location. But when I'm checking my VPS location with what is my ip, it shows the network location close to the Portland. Is it a normal or there's an issue? How do I check my hosting server location?

Thanks!
Philippe

Rough indication is from your IP, you can check with iplocation.net. However, this is not always real "location", depends on the network.
The IP addresses can be GEO type, example: your VPS physical location can be USA, but the IP addresses can allocated to Netherlands

With this tools you can detect only GEO location for IP but not physical location

If the IP shows from close to Portland that means the VPS provider must be from that location and he has got the IPs from the local IP authorities hence it shows the location. Since IPs can easily routed though your organization is NL based you can still offer US based servers using the IPs from NL authority , provided you have your own colocation facility in US and IPs routed.

This will not give exact results because each provider will offer various locations. If you see into the list you can not exactly determine where your server location is. I would go with a tool to check server location based on IP address.
