US West Coast Customers and USA Servers

#1 Postby beeman1212 » Sep 17, 2012 1:06 pm

I know most people here recommend not to get US servers for legal reasons but for US West coast users and Australians download speeds are horrible from NL. How do some of you deal with that? If everyone uses NL servers to host, that means the entire US westcoast and Australia are basically untouched because download speeds are horrid from there. Thoughts?

do me a favour and download a hulkshare file and tell me your speed!

their servers are in the netherlands and hosted at nforce.

if you get a good speed you can use them probably?

what about choopa? did you ask them?

I'm not from the west coast but I've had many complaints from West Coast customers and austrlians about slow speeds. I'd assume all hosts will be the same NL to West coast USA and Australia is a huge distance, that is the main problem.

it also has something to do how many a server company wants to spend for their lines!

if they don't rent high volume lines you will have slow speed like a bottleneck

i've tested nforce and it's pretty much the same as leaseweb in terms of download speed.

ok so try choopa? also limehost.ro has datacenters in the USA

I never thought about DC's in the usa beause of the law

Probably you ask carpathia hosting :P

how much speed you get with nforce/leaseweb?

in this special case I would try OVH with their new DC in CANADA or fdcservers.net

Choopa would be a good host BUT not in USA. Choopa is expensive in NL when compared to nforce or Leaseweb.

Yea, I never thought of using US DCs to avoid problems with the law. It seems like most filehosts use Euopean/NL servers these days. Don't you guys get complaints? Because I am getting many.

Speeds from my location is not bad since I'm in the east coast, around 400-450kb/sec but with IDM (multiple connections) it can reach over 1mb/sec.

I have some West coast users who get horrid speeds and some Australians who literally time out.

It's not a server optimization problem, nor is it overload. I've investigated both issues and got professional help. Basically it all boils down to location. I feel a little confused as to why no one talks about this, am I the only one having this problem?

if you have european asian customers no one will have problems

if it goes overseas the problems start
