I have a web domain which is registered in Germany and I have a VPS server in another country. On my server I have setup my web application with Apache Tomcat. My application users access the website by typing the domain of the site. Now my question is does this effect the performance of the application if my domain and server are in different country. will my application work faster if my domain and server are in the country where 95% of my users will be working with the application. removing the internet speed factor from the user side. i will appreciate your help if somebody helps me to understand this.
