    Yes it is important but not mandatory , your users will see a good page loading time when the server is near by and a bit more time if its far

    However its a difference in seconds , nothing much and more

    Let me give the following example: i had a portuguese website hosted in a DE hosting company. Whenever i use to do a search for that particular company, the google result was always the 6 or 7 in google search results, and in many cases the first results was about companies with similar names. After migrate that website to a portuguese hosting company, with a PT IP, that website is n.1 in google. I know this might be because of the fact google is now using a different DC, probably, however this is my own experience and i like to shared with you. I think the website now loads exactly with the same speed. But in many cases you should notice a fast website if you're using a closer DC to your audience.

    Well getting a server near your audience improve User Experience by providing better page loading speed which eventually help to improve online sales in long run. However, I am using cloud woocommerce hosting which consist of multiple machines working as one unit and major advantage of having a cloud hosting is that no matter from where my E commerce store is access it provides the best response time. All the best.

    It’s not a must to choose a server location that is closer to yours. You can use CloudFlare CDN, which caches your content across a global network, and brings it closer to visitors from every region. I’ve been using SSD web hosting with CDN for a few months and I’ve noticed that my site loads a lot faster than before.

    Now Location does not matter for web hosting. but if your hosting is nearby to you then you can get below benefits:
    1. Shorter page loading duration
    2. SEO and higher search engine ranking
    3. Higher conversion rate
    4. Cheaper to acquire:

    Location is not so important for web hosting services but if you take nearby the location that is good for you. Because it helps to increase website traffic and also increase Google ranking. as well as you can choose location wise hosting service that will provide faster load and better response time.

    Internet connection speeds are different in different countries. Therefore the location of the servers is important in web hosting as at the end it is a speed which will play an important role in the success of your website. The location of the server matters most in case of sharing the data.
