SEO and Hosting Location

July 18, 2014

In most cases, a page will download quicker if the web server is geographically closer to the site visitor. This is due to the fact that the larger the distance between a web server and the site visitors, the more nodes the data has to pass through.

Having stated this, if, for instance, your website is directed to North American users, it would be better if you use a web hosting company somewhere in USA or Canada. Moreover, the domain extension that you register should be specific (like .us or .ca for USA and Canada respectively) in order for search engines to be able to rank your website in a highest position according to your geographical location.
