    Hi all, I just switched my current project over to a VPS. As my target market is in China, I decided to purchase a VPS located in Shanghai (I was really suffering with my shared Siteground (US hosted) account).

    From Nanjing, she's running blazing fast. Specs:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E7400
    Disk space: 20GB
    RAM: 512
    Bandwidth: unmetered

    Price with a Single Plesk license is around USD$80/month.
    Help me out OT, by letting me know how fast she's running Stateside. :wavey:

    took about 30 seconds for the page to load, I think an Asian dude on a bicycle delivered the packets.

    Ya, that's true, 100% of my target market is inside China.

    However, I run a couple of US-based sites as well (just on simple Siteground shared packages). I'm told they run fine when accessed from the States, but maintaining them from China is a real draaaaag.

    Was hoping maybe to switch all my sites over to this China VPS, but based on the feedback, for my sites targeting people in the west, it's not the answer.

    Well, if I purchased a US VPS/DS, will I be able to access them easier from China?

    What's your connection speed?

    For that price at unmetered BW I would assume somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.5mbps

    28 seconds before I saw -any- sign of anything loading, 47 seconds total until the page had loaded.

    This page has 19 external Javascript scripts. Try combining them into one.
    This page has 40 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
    This page has 54 external background images. Try combining them with CSS sprites.

    Lots of optimisation could be done :)
