Which location for customers located Dubai?

I am considering creating a droplet for a client located in the Middle East/Dubai/Saudi Arabia, what would be my best bet? Singapore or Frankfurt?

Would it make sense not to bother with this at all and find them a local hosting company? I am doing this remotely so can’t provide serious assistance beyond a phone call and Skype.

You can test your speed and latency to all of our data centers by using the speed test links found here. Based purely on geography I would guess that you will see the best performance from the Frankfurt data center for users connecting from the Middle East.

hi did you use the Singapore server? i check it in speed test.

I know this is an older post but we are located in Middle East and are looking to maybe use DO for our Unifi Cloud Server.

So far the ping/speed is best from Singapore. Which data center did you use and how is the performance in general?

Appreciate some feedback if you still using DO.
