I am going to make my website live on AWS servers and 100% of intended website audience will be from India only. As amazon offers you to get services from various zones, I was wondering is there any substantial difference in performance and page fetch time if I choose my server to be in North Virginia or in Asia Pacific?
I have read somewhere that more the server is near a client's computer, more fast the webpage loads on his machine. As number of hops between client's machine and server gets reduced.
If that is the case then Amazon offers three places in Asia Pacific(Singapore, Tokyo, Sidney) out of which Asia Pacific(Singapore) is the nearest place near India. Should I take server in Singapore only or I can choose any location?
Please suggest me?
