Shorter distances and less traffic can have a big effect on latency. For example, if a VPS datacentre is located in Manchester, it will work well for users based in Manchester, but the results will not be so good for users in Amsterdam (We have datacentres in both of these cities). This isn't anything to do with the quality of the server itself; it's all about the physical distance. Distance from the server is the number one cause of latency issues, and latency is a key factor of what users consider to be 'performance'.
By latency, we are talking about the time that passes between a user sending a command to the server and the response coming back from the server. If you are within 50 miles of the datacentre, the response times will usually be less than 10 milliseconds. Further than that, and the response time can drift to 100+ milliseconds and this has a huge impact on the customer experience.
We have a large number of datacentres in an ever-increasing number of locations around the globe. We also give our customers the ability to choose their VPS. This means we can offer the best experience for our customers in accordance with their needs and priorities.
Our datacentres are positioned to serve the greatest number of people in hotspots across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Our VPS hosting locations are in prime position to serve millions of customers with industry-leading latency and other performance characteristics. We are always looking to expand into new territories in order to offer our hosting services to more people who need them.
We advise choosing the datacentre closest to you and your clients if you wish to experience minimal latency when you use your VPS. If you are located in the same city as one, you are likely to get the best possible experience from it, but as long as you are not thousands of miles away then you should be able to enjoy a quality experience with all the benefits our hosting offers.
Take a look at our current locations to see which would be the best for your location.
UKBSS.COM is already a frontrunner in the VPS hosting industry, but we know that there is a growing need for datacentres close to users in an increasing number of areas. We want to ensure the greatest possible number of people are able to access close-proximity virtual private servers in order to experience excellent performance and be as productive as they can.
This is why we are committed to identifying the best global locations for new datacentres and expanding our network where it is needed. If you feel that none of our locations are right for you at this point, this page is the place to watch for updates when new locations are announced.
With VPS Hosting packages designed to accommodate all budgets and requirements, and an ever-increasing arsenal of datacentres around the world, it's no wonder our service is emerging as a top choice for discerning users. VPS hosting is one of the best ways for businesses of all sizes to house their data and applications. To minimise costly downtime, some experts advise that you house mission-critical workloads in a datacentre somewhere further away if your region is prone to issues like power outages and natural disasters.
In any case, we understand the great deal of trust that you put in us when you place your applications and data in our hands, and that is something we never take lightly.
We don't only host, we also build our own systems and also built custom platforms for larger clients.
We take ownership of not only our brand but many and we are always growing our brand.
We are proud to have a team from all round the globe helping us to provide a great service.
We keep on top of the latest changes and updates in the tech world.
