    Sorry, I was ill and unable to use internet.

    Which is best location acording to you(excluding popular locations)

    "Close to them" will create another question like "Which City is purchasing hosting products higher then others City"

    You want to be unique? Get me your AutoBoot technology on a VPS in Qatar or Bahrain for $7 per month.

    I dont think a city would be popular but United States is a popular conutry for VPS location. However many users also look for offshore location for the providers that ignore DMCA.

    It's  very cheap, and therefore saturated with VPS providers. I don't think it's really a "preferred" location, just a location where you can get a good deal.

    Where the internet exchanges are.

    In our case, AMSX, PLIX and soon Berlin.

    I would say ; Seattle, Los Angeles , Dallas, Buffalo, Chicago.

    But it doesn't matter which one is popular, its more of where the clients need them for better latency.

    I would have to say Dallas is a very popular location however there is no real popular location, it depends on what country your target audience are based

    Hope this helps

    Buffalo is popular with dedicated server providers because it's near new york and it's cheap,

    but the truth that buffalo don't have so much good connection to new york.

    new york is the best location, but it's very expensive.

    Berlin makes zero sense, only very small exchanges and despite proximity to Poland most traffic is re-routed to Frankfurt anyway.

    For us in Germany, the best Location should be Frankfurt as this where DE-CIX and many other exchanges are. Also from a europe point of view, Frankfurt should be perfect.

    We also host our VPS in Frankfurt.

    Buffalo, new york, the best location. lots of bandwidth providers and peers makes the VPS available everywhere with lowest latency.
