I'm living in tajikistan, and I want to purchase vps/dedicated server or at least good hosting outside of my country. One of important thing I want is to have a GOOD ping. For example ping to google.com is 200ms and ping to stackoverflow.com is 350ms. Sites that are hosted in the local hostings are working with 50ms.

Now the question is: How can I find hosting/vps/ds with best ping that I can have? Is there any services or ways to find them?

  • Ping is not an abosolute value without context. Ping(source, target) is better defined. By saing "GOOD ping" do you mean ping from where? (from you? your customers?)

Well each hop adds some latency so you should be looking for a datacenter / provider in your area with a decent uplink. As you are looking for a provider outside your country I'd look in the neighbourhood (India, China, Russia ...)

You could check some of the websites listing hosting companies or you just google for it e.g. vps hosting russia and then check this provider's ping manually (or even script that).
