Most of the replies are speaking about the target audience. Trust me, the location of the server does not matter as you will see very few ms deviations. That can be avoided if you use CloudFlare or a better CDN.
I always prefer clustered environment for M2 as it is too powerful and also to ensure high availability.
So just pick some well-known provider like AWS, Google, Linode, DigitalOcean, Hetzner, Vultr, Kamatera
All the host I have mentioned above maintains 99.999% uptime. Just choose the one which is in your budget and hire some pro to build your M2 infra.
I do build my own infra for all my M2.
This is a shameless plug, but my company is about to launch an IaC/DevOps platform called Unfurl.cloud that might help you with picking a host provider. It’s a low-code solution to quickly deploy open source applications with major providers like GCP, AWS, and DigitalOcean (we're adding Azure and more down the line). We have a pretty limited catalog for now, but Magento is one of the applications we support and we're offering free hosting (one test server for six months) to attract early adopters.
