It gets even worse.
I speak from experience.
Some hosts have lied to me and told me via email that the servers were located where I wanted them to be and in fact they werent, so now I ping them each time.
Some have servers located both in USA and UK but still cock it up and put the hosting through the wrong one notwithstanding a specific request.
The worst problem of all that I had was not knowing for a very long time the uk.com is not a uk specific domain but is effectively a .com and will not show up in local searches unless hosted locally..took me a couple of years to figure that one out.
