    Does anyone know if a non-US hosting company has any downfalls over a hosting company located in the US? Besides phone calls, and communications. Does it have an effect on search engines?

    We use www.readyhosting.com for $99 bucks a year with unlimited email and no mesured bandwith. Just $99 bucks. Been using them for 6 years now. Never a problem.

    well I have used many different hosting companies before I bought my own server and I found that US companies are the fastest

    It shouldn't have an effect on search engine rankings. You need to make sure that the company is reliable, though, since having your site down because your host is down can negatively impact your rankings, especially if the search engines try to spider your site when your host is down.

    it won't make too much difference, however the latency (time to get to the server and back to the user) will be longer than a server thats closer to them.

    Hi ksland,

    Another thing I would be concerned with is would you pay monthly or yearly in advance?
