I am in the USA and I see that M2E is recommending a different hosting company(MageMojo) than the one you recommend (Simple Helix) for USA.

I think I am correct that it makes sense to work with a USA hosting company, rather than a UK company, considering i live in the the USA, but I have considered the UK plans as well. Do you have any experience with MageMojo? Did you review them when you did the reviews for Simple Helix?

Any help on selecting a hosting company would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Valerie,

We haven’t personally tried MageMojo so couldn’t really comment, but we did properly stress test Simple Helix and it faired very well which led to our recommendation. However I have spoken to the CEO of M2E about MageMojo and he was very complimentary of the service they provide and it would be in his interest to ensure M2E is being run off adequate hosting so I am confident they won’t be terrible :)

Thanks Dave. I really like the ones in the UK –does it make sense at all for a USA company to use on in UK??

Hi Valerie,

2 main reasons for you to use a host in the USA from what I can see.

1. Speed – If most of your customers are in America then having a server based their should have less hops between your customer and server and be faster.

2. SEO – Google will look at the ip address of your server for part of it’s ranking. If you have a server in the UK with a UK ip address then Google may think that your business is based in the UK and rank you higher on google.co.uk and rank you lower down on google.com

3. We have a wholesaler that sells Hornby trains so if you ever want them let me know :)

Hey Valerie,

Kevin beat me too it but he is of course right, there are more benefits of having hosting in your home country for sure.
