    1and1 Server Ping

    So I'm wondering what if anything I can do to get a better ping from my 1and1 server.

    It's located in Wayne, PA and my ping floats around 70ms and I'm in South Lake Tahoe, CA. I only ask because there are servers with Peer1 hosted in New York, NY that give me a ping around 20ms.

    Thanks for any help or advice.

    Its a Windows Server 2008 Web Box.

    70ms coast to coast sounds about right.... 20ms from CA to NY is out-of-this-world.

    To the OP the US datacenter for 1and1 is actually located in New Lenexa, Kansas. The headquaters is located in Pa. I'm a customer of them too.

    I suppose I used the wrong or a bad tool to locate it. Anyone recommend a good tool for finding the location of a server?

    Only real way is to examine the traceroute. Notice atl (atlanta), then dal (Dallas), then la (Los Angeles).
