I didn't know where to put this, so...

I think that it is slightly strange/ironic that the BA server is in France, when the suffix for BA is .co.uk. Anyone else spot this?

It's because for all intents and purposes, It's a British operation, hence the UK. It's owned and administrated by some English Person called Andy, and was even hosted in England at some points (if I remember correctly, Andy?). It's rented from the UK Arm of the French Company OVH.

However, UK Pricing for Dedicated Servers is poor, The French are much better at providing Cheap Dedicated Servers. Hence why my Milestone 1 is a .co.uk, but like BA, is hosted on an OVH Dedicated in France.

And yes, everyone noticed because Andy doesn't exactly make it a secret, more like it gets mentioned every other week.

The new guy is slightly annoying, but that's no reason to jump on every post he makes. Give the kid a chance.

Not really. The domain suffix has nothing to do with the location of the server.

In the beginning it was hosted on Andy's Home server (not the current one, about 3 servers ago). But as the site grew and grew, it become a problem for his home connection. So firstly the site was moved to a Datacenter in the USA, but shortly moved back to Europe.
