    Is it true that Malaysia servers are better than in US?

    I currently hosted my site in a server in US and would like to migrate into Malaysia seerver because lately my site always down. Maybe the server got problems and had to restart.

    But before I decided to do the migration, I asked my hosting provider (a Malaysian hosting provider) about the migration process and I also told them about the problem with with my website. They said that Malaysia servers are better than US. Is it true? But why?

    Hello,

    The hardware is practically the same. Processor, RAM, HDD etc all are distributed worldwide. So, in term of hardware performance (given similiar specs) both have same advantage.

    In term of network connectivity, US and Europe have better network backbone. Our network are like dailups when compare with them.

    However, what makes really different in webhosting is the SERVICE.

    1. How you provider treat the customers
    2. How they maintain the servers
    3. What policies that they oblige
    4. How effcient their operation
    etc

    This quality can be in Malaysia or USA.

    Your question should be 'does Malaysia webhosting service better than US?'

    Yes, Malaysia do have good and bad providers. This also apply to USA hosters also.

    Thank you,

    Firstly, you should ask your hosting provider for the reasons why they say that. If it is just because they are local and they offer local hosting, then they are not being fair if they don't give you valid reasons.

    Secondly, as fivio says, do they mean the server itself or the service?

    For servers, IMO, most providers in the US use much better server specs than local providers. So there is an advantage there.

    For services, there are good and bad providers everywhere. So you have to choose carefully. You can easily find providers in US with good uptime, service and support.

    This is why you cannot just compare on prices or go for the cheapest. You have to pay a reasonable price to get good services.

    If your site visitors are local, then there is a speed advantage with a local server. If your site visitors are from US, a US server would be better.

    Again, as fivio says, there are many factors for you to consider when choosing a hosting provider.

    There's too many comparison between that. (US vs MY server).
    somehow, the easiest solution is.

    1 - If your most visitor from Malaysia = go to local server
    2 - If your most visitor outside of malaysia (europe etc) = go to US / international server

    3 - Budget

    *aiyah! same as mylinear opinion.. hehe

    "my hosting provider said that Malaysia datacenters are more stable than US datacenters. is it true?"

    not really. if you are from malaysia, when u access website hosted at malaysia, it will be more stable, faster then website hosted at US. but so far your main website's visitor most from US, i still suggest that you remain using US server. if you using MY server, your US visitor may slow loading on your website.

    i found that the server that you are using are too many user (400+ website). it mayb overload of a server and cause server down. suggest you to ask your provider to migrate your website to other US server which is less users.

    if u looking to change provider, u can look for me. i do provide US cPanel hosting. the price is quite low. so far the server have only 42 websites.

    beside that i provide local server too.

    if you are interest to get more information, u can pm to get my company website and pricing.

    thank you

    If your sites are important and you want to provide the best possible surfing experience for your visitors, then host your main site at US and the other sites locally.

    This is not necessarily true. Again, depends on what "stable" is supposed to mean. If loading speed for local visitors, then yes, it is faster and less problems, so can be considered "stable". If network connection or technical expertise etc, not necessarily.

    This is not necessarily the case. Just because the server has 400+ websites does not mean it is overloaded. You will need much more detail on what types of websites they are and how much resources they are using etc before you can say the server is overloaded. You can have a server with just one or two or a few websites with heavy usage which could overload a server. At the same time, a server with hundreds of simple websites may not overload a server.

    yaya..u are right, sorry for my mistaken. that why i said it maybe overload.
    if a server host 400 simple website, eg, static html website, online visitor less, the server may wont so easy to overload. if the server host 400 heavy usage website, visitor many, it maybe will caused a server overload.

    note: cPanel - Server Status can view the server performance.

    correct me if i m wrong

    Hello,

    The server loads is depending on the hardware, IO, software etc. But if the provider cramp users into one server, this can be the major issue.

    by the way sean, please do not self-advertise

    Thank you,

    there are many things that i need to learn about hosting and server. thanks for the info.

    btw if i hosted my website in malaysia, local visitors will get faster speed to access my website. this also implies to US visitors because they have high-speed internet connection. even though the need to hop from server to server, but it takes less time. so i don't think the slowness connection speed can be an issue to them. am i right?

    can anyone suggest one? I'm searching for the best hosting you've ever used and satisfied with their service. if you're afraid of advertising them, please PM me.

    the key: more than 2GB space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email, php + mysql, cheap, easy backup, good service, expecting visitors across Malaysia.

    thanks!
