Does it matter where in the world 🌍 my website is hosted at? Yes ✅
In general, the closer the web servers are to the website users, the quicker the pages will load. A faster website will mean:
- Faster performance for your website users
- Improved SEO
- Hopefully more visitors, money, sign ups etc
Check with your Web host where your website will be hosted? e.g if your website users are mainly based in the US, then best practice is to ensure your web host has servers located in the US.
