This is my first post on this forum, I heard a lot about Sitepoint so I look forward to receiving suggestions from best people in our field.
Okay we need a dedicated server for our US based website (catering to US customers), but due to budget constraints we are forced to purchase a cheap server from Europe / Asian hosting companies.
1. Now is it okay to host a website in Europe / Asia that only caters to US customers? Will it have any drawbacks as compared to hosting on a US based data center?
2. Regarding SEO, will our website rank normally in US search results?
Please provide your suggestions to enable us to make this decision.
