Ping vs Hops when looking for a vps
I am considering buying a vps from Leaseweb.I tested their available locations and here is the result
US- ping 259 ms,hops 16
NL-ping 292 ms ,hops 11
DE- ping 300 ms,hops 12
Considering I am on one of the network where my visitors will be,which location will be good to choose.
Where are you located/ which AS? Ping of 600 to Germany seems a bit high when you got 300 to NL
I am from India and using BSNL-AS9829 .Most of the visitors will be from India itself.
Edit- 600 was a typo.It is actually 300
There are indian DC's. I think you should consider one. Also you can use Sri Lankan DC because ping is low to india from Sri Lanka.
The bandwidth prices in India are really very high.Will get one of those locations from Leaseweb and use CDN for improving performance.
lol, never, that is even more expensive than India.
