    * Could you check ping from yours servers?

    Hey.

    I'm searching for the best VPS for me.
    The most important thing for me are a low pings.

    I bought VPS on spacerich.com but I have ping ~70 which is to high for my needs.

    And here my request appears. I'd like you to check ping to some IP's from your servers and then post them here so I can choose the best VPS....
    I will be unbelieveable grateful if you help me.

    Here are some IP addresses:
    75.101.168.10
    184.72.197.71
    204.13.251.10
    208.78.71.10
    74.125.93.27

    Pings are entirely dependent on the distance between the request and the server. Having a bunch of people post pings to those IPs won't do any good as the pings should not be used as a basis to compare against one another. Unless, all those IPs belong to servers in the same geographic area. Are they?

    Yep, There are.
    I'm not sure but these IP's are from Seattle.
    Obiously, I'm searching servers in this region

    I forgot to add.
    I bought VPS in Seattle and I checked ping to another server also near Seattle. And my best result was 70 ms.
    Seems to high if you keep in mind that these servers are almost at the same location. (Mmm....I was checking "IP location" at site I had found on google)

    Where did you get the info that these IPs are from Seattle? Try them in http://www.ip2location.com/free.asp and see.

    OP, #1/2 are Amazon's, #3/4 are DynDNS and last one is Google's (based on whois). Don't think these are based in Seattle.

    A handful of random ping tests are not going to provide meaningful data. You may as well just roll a set of dice.

    If ping is that important, investigate each provider's connectivity and then do relevant, extended testing.

    It seems the website I found "lied" me becouse it had shown Seattle. Lol. It's the west coast while it should be on east :d

    So I'm definitely going to search for VPS in Virginia.
    dyna!@ - thanks for your post, it helps a lot. Could you tell me where have you bought your VPS?

    Maybe you could recommend any hosting company with VPS'es near Virginia?

    For example, DynDNS IPs are most probably using Anycast, as well as Google IPs. Anycast is a technology (that only rich companies can access to) which shows the IP closer to where you check it. They are totally worthless for a VPS.

    You could check with QuickWeb, they have some VPSs in Seattle area. I'm sure there are others as well, because Softlayer has a Seattle location and there are companies selling from that DC.

    Just to mention: all SoftLayer IPs are registered at Dallas. So if you have a SoftLayer IP from Seattle, Washington or Dallas -- the IP location websites will show Dallas.

    SoftLayer Test IPs:

    208.43.118.51 -- WDC
    67.228.118.21 -- SEA
    66.228.118.51 -- DAL

    Instead, traceroute the IP to find the exact location.

    I've found just-ping.com useful for checking latency and packet loss from multiple different locations around the world.
