    Question Best of both worlds


    I am based in the UK and i am starting a new dev blog/resources site. I want to target both the US and UK market. Aswell as all other english speaking markets. What is the best way forwards with regards to hosting. My budget is small to moderate. Should i just host in the US because that is the bigger market? I know my way around basic ASP... is there a way to host the same site in different areas using geotargeting or redirects etc..? Any input much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Yes i am aware of this which is why i dont want to miss out. I was wondering if it is possible to host the same site in both countries and get the benefit of both markets??

    There is a way to have different geo areas go to different servers but you are FAR better off just picking a host with great bandwidth like PEER-1.

    That is possible but I think that would be really expensive thing. I recommend you have web hosting in the US. That would be cheaper and I think you will have good conection spped for UK as well. Recommended host: pacifichost.com

    Hope that helps

    I would recommend you to choose a hosting provider who provides round the clock support to you via live chat and phone with email support to your clients as well.

    It would be better to consider a reseller hosting package to start with and then upgrade when your requirements increase in future. Unlimited disk space and bandwidth is not possible and hence it is better to avoid hosting packages with this kind of specification

    2. the same connection speed.
