I'm not familiar with hosting rules and tricks. So maybe my question could seem a bit "stupid"...
I'im going to take a webfaction instance on the server in Amsterdam. I currently live in France. France is my first targeting market and USA will be the second.
I wanted to know if it's possible, and if yes, how, to "simulate" that my server is in France and not in Amsterdam. I think it will works with another server that I buy in France, which redirects to the server in Amsterdam. I read it's called Reverse Proxy, but "reverse proxy" seems to have some other meanings (nginx).
Does anybody do something like that for their needs ?
I want to do that just for SEO which seems to be better when the server is in the targeting country.
Thanks by advance Bastien

Yes, this is certainly possible, but it's not something I would recommend because I don't think the SEO improvement will be noticeable. But if you want to do this, you can. You would use something like this:
Again, I personally don't think the SEO benefits would be noticeable, but if you want to do this, go right ahead :)
Hope that helps!
