Which hosting provider should I choose for a company based in Hong Kong with customers around the world?
I now have two domain names: one in the form of www.companyname.com.hk
and the other in the form of www.¿¿¿¿.¿¿.hk (both Latin letters and Chinese characters in the domain name).
So I will have two web sites: one web site for my Western customers (companies in Europe and north America) in Western languages, and one web site for my Chinese customers (companies in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore) in only Chinese language (simplified and traditional Chinese).
Should I choose the same hosting provider for both these web sites? Does it matter in which region of the world this hosting provider has its servers located? Are there other factors that are more important than location of servers, such as type of web server, CMS, etc.?
I will have features such as dynamic databases with login areas for customers, online software/tools, etc., and upload of documents in the login areas, CMS so I can change/add contents myself in any language, etc.
