    Especially when they do things like steal your domain because you cancel your hosting service.

    Bear in mind that (at least some people say that) Google and the other search engines will look at a webserver's location when sorting out the search results. For example, if someone searches google.co.uk for something, then webpages residing on servers located in the U.K. may have a better chance of appearing in the top results... even when the searcher hasn't got "pages from the UK" ticked.

    So, are you targeting a British audience or a worldwide audience? If it's the latter, an American webserver might actually be the best option.

    Cheers,

    From what little I have seen, Google has used the WHOIS records to determine server "location", not the IP address.

    P.S. Where are you in .nl? I used to live in Helmond and Eindhoven.
