    hey guys,

    I am looking into buying a domain in Hong Kong, so it will be a .hk domain..

    It is a site that is only interesting for local searches, I do not need traffic from other countries...

    My question is, can I just host that site on my normal host (my host now is in Europe I think), or is a Hong Kong host better?

    Thanks in advance!

    I think the hong kong hosting is better, plus you can purchase geo targeteg traffic...or at least that's what i would do. Hope it helps a bit.

    You think? I am sorry, but I would like to know for certain before I buy 15 hosts around the world :)

    About the traffic, I do not need to buy traffic, I need the local traffic...

    Thanks for the answer though

    I don't think that a local host can make any difference as traffic and hosting are quite separate issues.

    Getting a local host would be ideal. It helps in Google places listings and for localized search results.

    It's not the end of the world if you can't get it though.
