Based on this it is really hard to suggest you anything.
Elaborate your requirements a bit, so that it would be easier to guide you.

If I have to answer the question, you need to search for
1. Location nearby to you for faster connectivity
2. Location with good environmental conditions to maintain high uptime

Generally you're going to want to pick the most geocentric location possible for your userbase that also has good connectivity.

Server location plays a significant role in terms of web hosting as it helps in loading your website faster for the potential visitors. So, it is very important to select the server location near your target audience.
If your focus is on international audience, CDN is the best to be considered to enhance the experience of the visitors by bringing your content closer to them.

Can you elaborate your requirements? What website are you hosting? Who will be your targeted customers?

Selecting a server location needs these criteria to be considered.

Based on your original question have you ever purchased a dedicated server or will this be your first time? Do you have a budget in mind for it? Exactly what kind of server are you looking for? It really depends on what you will be doing with the server if the actual location will really make a difference.

For sure if this would be your first time using a dedicated server, you will not find the best answer in forums.
But as the colleagues said you must ask your self a couple of questions:
1. What kind of server do you need ?
2. What kind of business you would like to start ?
3. Target ?

Next you must think about the price and location.
After answering of this questions you probably must have some idea what kind of server you would use and where (in which country) you will start searching for a company.

check the purpose , choose the location that is near to your customers or you , make sure you are not hosting any abuse materials as DCs are very concerned with abuse issues and last the budget you have along with the configuration you are looking for.

Firstly choose a company who fits your needs and offers good support/ track record.

For location it depends on your preference but for the most part you would want a server close to where your largest customer base is located.

Depending on where you and your target customers are located at, find a data center that is within the same proximity. For example, if I am serving Malaysians, and I am a Singaporean, for the purpose of having a better ranking SEO in Malaysia, and to get as low latency as possible, I'd choose to host my dedicated server in CX2 data center, located in Malaysia.

There are a few data centers in Malaysia. I'd look for one with the most reliable infrastructure. Just to name a few, power redundancy, cooling system and protection against fire hazards.

When choosing a data center, it is also important that you know their practices as well as terms and conditions.

It is hard to say as there are many factors at play. Typically you want to have your server in the country you'd like to be your main clientele. Depending on the service you are providing some clients really want something as close as possible for example some gaming server, clients might want the server to be located in their city.

Make sure you have your business plan in place prior to making these decisions.
