SERVER MOVE + HTTPS / SSL

#1
Hi guys

I am finally looking at a new server.

Currently testing out Cloudways.

I need to decide on a location for the server (DigitalOcean data centers), these are the choices offered:
  • London
  • San Francisco
  • Singapore
  • New York
  • Amsterdam
  • Frankfurt
  • Toronto
  • Banglore

Looking at Google Analytics geo location by subcontinent we have roughly: 31% northern america, 21% asia, 30+% europe.

My hunch is to go for a US west coast server, as this is between US and Japan/Asia basically. But really I have no idea about the existing "pipes" and actual network infrastructure.

Let me know what you think. I'm not stuck on Cloudways but they have a free trial, currently testing the San Francisco server.

PS: this is the stack they have: Nginx, Memcached, Varnish, ...

PPS: Server I'm going for is the second choice, so 1 GB RAM. I have no idea how it compares to hostgator as HG doesn't give me any info, but from what I understand the Cloud server actually has a dedicated CPU and memory, unlike HG shared hosting.

PPPS: Cloud could actually be really good for the forum when most requests are reading vs writing posts. However I have no idea how I'd optimize MyBB for that. Any hints welcome. (edit: Oh, there are Varnish rules, no idea how it works)
