how much does datacenter location matter?
im located in the US, as the majority of my clients are. if i were to be using a datacenter in some other country, say africa, would that greatly affect the connection or speed or anyhting?
Well yes, the data would have to travel from Africa, through the pipes to your customers browsers in the US. This will add some (not a great deal) of lag.
You also need to make certain you select a data center which has multiple connections to the internet backbone, most in the US will meet this requirement.
