data connections

I've been asked to move an application and database to two new servers.  The servers are on two completely different domain names and I'm wondering what kind of effect will this have, if any on performance?  I would think that the data calls will be a tad slower because the web server will call the domain in a completely different area.  Is this a big issue?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The two servers isn't the issue, but I'm wondering if the two domains, in completed different areas makes a difference on performance?

    look at your standard hosting company - thesba, hostmysite, etc
    they host hundreds of domains on one machine.

    curious - what do you mean by "completely different areas"?

    So the db servers is sitting internally at the company, and they are thinking of using a hosting company server as the coldfusion server.  So I'm wondering if there will be a performance issue seeing that the Coldfuison server sitting at the hosting company will have to make db calls to the server sitting in my office?

    ah - so thats what you are speaking of.
    It will be at least a bit slower of course than if they hosted your db as well - simply due to the distance - but will it be noticably slower - ???.
    If hosting company hosts db - it and app server would still be on different machines.
    you'd just need to test it to see if its a viable setup.
    and if its not just move db server to host as well.

    Thanks!  That's what I thought.  I figured it would be somewhat slower, but didn't know if it would be a big difference in speed.  We have SQL server in house, and they want to use an outside hosting company for the coldfusion server.  

    Thanks again for your comments
