    US Server vs. Foreign Server on Google

    I am launching my vacation rental site that is located in the Cayman Islands and will be doing SEO.

    1. Should I have this particular site on a Cayman based server?

    2. How does Google deal with .ky websites for SEO? (I don't think there is a google.ky)

    I wouldn't worry about where your site is hosted. As for the .ky domains, I dare say they are treated like any other domain and will be ranked accordingly.

    If possible I'd go with a .com also, you can then set its target as cayman islands.
