I plan to have a geographically specific web based business. Does it matter where the hosting, development is done if the traffic/clientale is in another region?
In other words, could I have a site developed, hosted and maintained in US for an Asian market specific business?
Any pros and cons?
The only drawback is if you offer not only a lot of image based content or items to download (files/music/documents/etc) and your customer base is in the Far East or South Asia the download times can be longer. If your customers will be in Africa (specifically Southern Africa) I would strongly
suggest getting hosting in South Africa/Johannesburg.
In my last `worker bee job` one of my jobs was to deliver different web content all over the world and some countries aren`t really up to par when it comes to North America, Europe, or the Far East`s standards of internet quality.
