    This is a good question! I tried doing a bit of research right now, but I couldn't find anything related to the security. However, the server location does affect site loading speed (it's slower for people further away from the server) and search engine rankings.

    I suppose as long as the web host's servers do not get compromised or raided often, you're fine. :)

    I know it impacts site loading speed and effect seo if page loading speed is slow but what about security
