    Question Ping times ...

    Hi

    I have an account with Servage and I also have an account with HostGator.

    Now between 80-90% of my visitors are from the US.

    The ping times on Servage from the US are average about 115 ms.
    The ping times on HostGator from US are average about 33 ms.

    Do these response times make a noticable difference to visitors? eg: would the average joe visitor from the US notice a difference of 82 ms ???

    As I'm in the UK I get +/- 1 or 2 equal ping response times (being more/less in the middle of both).

    Tia

    Is http://encoderx.eu/ the site? If so, I can't tell the difference (from NY).

    Thanks, yes it is

    Servage IP: 82.140.42.15
    HG IP: 70.87.170.2

    I'm torn between Servage and HG and the final deciding factor (for me) would be the ping response times.

    Not a chance. If they are just browsing to the site there is no way they could tell. That's less than 1/10 of a second.

    Northern Germany AFAIK

    They have some pretty good peers:
    Network & Datacenter.

    Given the response times ...etc I might as well stay with Servage
