    Im going to start an affiliate site with more to come, and starting up a pbn in a while aswell.

    Should i go for regular hosting for the affiliate site or is VPS fine?

    And do i need to have it hosted in the same country as the service targets, since its local and not US or UK?

    Regular hosting would be fine. But you are always better off with a VPS server if you know how to manage it. If not you can get managed VPS.

    As far as where to host it I would recommend hosting it where you are targeting customers. This will help with site latency and so on.

    If you have any other questions let me know

    I would go with local hosting, not the biggest SEO difference but speed will improve your conversion.
    Shared is a good way to start, VPS is hard to manage if you have 0 linux knowledge, I went with scaleway for vps just to get the hang of things and had to reinstall 5 times by now, more will come :))

    Depending on the local provider, it may or it may not provide better speeds than an offshore provider.
    If your website will have lets say 500visits daily you can go with shared hosting plan anything higher will request VPS for better performance.
    VPS are not hard for self management since there are now plenty of free and paid control panels that once get installed on an VPS , you will be able to manage it just like shared hosting.
