Question regarding server/tracking

    Hello,
    I'm in the process of getting into mobile marketing and have a question regarding my server/tracking. I'm undecided whether to go with a self-hosted tracking solution or one in the cloud.

    I plan on hosting my landing pages on a CDN so that's covered.

    If I'm able to get a VPS in the same geographical region as where I'm advertising, would it be better to use FunnelFlux or Thrive? Or should I ditch that idea and use a tracking tool like Voluum?

    Edit: I'm well aware of the advantages of using a cloud tool like Voluum due to latency on mobile devices, however, if I'm just staring out and CAN get a VPS in the same country or nearby; will I have a larger advantage with one of the self-hosted options?

    hay @_r123
    okay i will answer Some Of your Questions .
    if i have lots of good campaigns i will use self-hosted tracker like thrive + my dedicated server because am sure no one can take a look at my campaigns + will be cheaper and faster then cloud. if i just started i will go with cloud hosted :) adsbradge as an example .

    yes absolutely but that can't happen because cpa marketers are looking for GEO and OFFER that converts , and your rule as a CPA marketer is to test lots of GEOs with offers offers and find some thing profitable and scale it :).

    at the end i want to say don't think lot .
    use Cloud Hosted tracking tool + a good vps with CDN will be good .
    and start working, after a couple weeks you will know what's the best for you :) .

    You have self-hosted options like CPVlab that are great
    and cloud hosted like voluum
    the delivery of your ads wont be affected if your using self-hosted or cloud
    what matters is your LPs hosting, you said you have CDN so i think you're covered

    I have CPVLab hosted on DigitalOcean
    and my LP on CDN
    dont pay more then 20 USD month

    just my 2 cents

    Do you find CPVLab accurate when tracking mobile campaigns? Which version do you have it?

    Never used it for mobile traffic, only for desktop and I was curious if it is a viable mobile tracking option. I must read again the manual and set up a test. Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply (Tom I think it is?).
    I'll be sure to check out Thrive once I get my new server running how I like :)
    Not quite ready to spend $300/month for Cloud tracking although the self-hosted option looks appealing.
