Slowness in tracert to public IP address

CentOS Server Optimization DigitalOcean

We have a basic server configured with Centos7 to which we installed MSSQL Server and it is working well, but it presents a delay in the response to registries and processes far superior to those we have in a similar server hosted in another hosting.

When doing a tracert to the public IP address of this server and compare it with one done on the other, we see that the droplet in Digital Ocean responds up to 5 times slower, because of many jumps in the access network … Is this delay due? Do we have any way to configure a direct ip address to the droplet without so many jumps? we do not find in the configuration options something to do it

Can you provide us with an example traceroutes from your DO server and one of another hosting company.? Most probably, the DO server and the other hosting server are actually in a different region.

Having said that, if you can post the traceroute here, I might be able to provide you with a more pinpoint answer.
