    I've been thinking quite a lot about a website's response time in general.

    I have read somewhere; if the website doesn't load within 3 seconds, then the visitor will closed the page.
    So if I have a US based website with streaming videos and want to target people in Europe; I have to expect many of my visitors will close down the site even before the video starts.

    So If I want to target international (people from US, Europe, Asia etc.) I have to have a server in either every country or on every continent.

    But let's say I want to target countries in South America, how will the response time be when I have a US based website?
    Will I loose visitors because of the response time? Or will the response time be low?

    Don't worry.. I'm using a US web hosting and my traffic is from Europe and I don't have any problem.

    1%-2% maybe they will close the page, but really it won't affect to you at all.


    BTW I'm doing CPA.

    with today's browsers which are using a smart loading is very difficult to find a host which won't start loading content after 3 seconds
