So You Start Dedicated Hosting Connection

Discussion in 'Hosting Advice' started by pocketbuilder123, Jun 27, 2015.

  1. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone from the US would be willing to share their experience with me about the quality of the connection to the SYS in the EU. I live in Texas specifically.
     
  2. Congestion.

    Ping rbx.proof.ovh.net from your home connection. That should give you a rough idea of latency.
     
  4. I'd definitely run this test over multiple different points of the day to test for consistency.
     
  5. Yeah i agree
     
  6. It truly depends on the users ISP and location.
    But I've had members from EU, and they get around 160 MS.
     
  7. Sounds odd, I get 90-110ms from Denmark to BHS.

    Meh, but playable. I live in Colorado and get 175ms to RBX.

    Not bad for going overseas but I wouldn't want to PvP over that.
     
  11. I don't think so People from asia will get good ping..
     
  12. If your target is EU is better to pick EU located VPS provider.
     
  13. Or just use the French location...

    Sounds like you are post farming by bumping threads a couple of days old to say meaningless information.
     
  14. I'm in Australia and getting around 400-450ms ping. I usually get 160ms ping to servers in Seattle and up to 300 in EU...
     
  15. :/ Now i can understand why some of our users from the USA & other nations are complaining about latency.
    From germany my connection to rbx.proof.ovh.net is pretty good: 57ms on a 16Mbps internet connection, so inside the EU, it should work great for most people.

    Weve 70% americans on the server and i dont want to torture them with pings like 300+ , do you think an US located server would fix it for them?

    Oh and sorry for my bad english, hope its readable^^
     
  16. If you have alot of users from the US, a North American server would be better for your players, yes.

    Moving to NA will fix it from your American players but remember, for you, FTP, Minecraft etc will be slower.

    The east coast on the US should provide good pings within the US and playable pings within Europe. Try pinging 206.221.176.194 from your US players and EU players.
