How do I know if sites under a certain host is fast-accessed in another country?
Hi, good to see you all. I am based in Beijing, China but I target my site mainly at North America and Europe. As I am now in the process of choosing the right host for my need, I want to know if there is any means to test if sites hosted by a certain space provider can be fast-accessed in those places round the clock? Ping wont do I guess? And itís better if thereís some tool that can automatically perform the test at intervals throughout the day. Thank you for your help.
Thank you, Gary. My major concern is the client's loading speed. My experience is that here in China, even some quite reputable hosts based in America can have poor loading speed at certain times of the day. The loading process can freeze with just the top of the page shown up or the loading can complete with images missing. But that's only the case with SOME hosts, while others are perfectly ok. So I know it makes sense to spend a little time researching and find the right one. I am so preoccupied with the freezing-up hassle that I havent even begin to worry about uptime. :-)
Thank you for the link to the proxy servers, tho i cant access it. a good pointer anyway and i'll try to find other proxy servers. Thanks, Gary.
