Ok i was wondering about if in the server area add a third category called location. With this we can create one group of products and give the clients the ability to select Example USA Location or Europe Location. Versus we set up double the products that are the same. So with the location area we can put Europe or USA and assign servers to Location and when the client checks out selects what location they want there product to be set up at automatically when they complete checkout and pay, such as cPanel webhosting or centova cast stream etc for the products.
I think all host provider that has server all over the world in more then one location would benefit from this to save us host time in setting up products and to minimize our product list menu in the client area side when trying to find product.
I know i have over 1000 products set up and with this it would cut it down to 500 easy. Plus if there was only 500 instead of 1000 products it would save about 400 hours a year updating product prices etc.
Let me know

This is already offered by a number of custom and third party modules - as others have mentioned it can also be achieved quite easily through hooks. If we see more votes asking for official support, weâ€™ll certainly consider implementing this, but at this time we arenâ€™t acting on it.
select server location
select php vesion
select hosting panel
all should be based on hidden product selection with some "visible parent"
This is already obtainable, and there is already a feature request for this:
Please ensure you're searching established requests before creating a new one.
A single request with a lot of votes has more power than a bunch of individual requests for the same thing with little votes.
You can also set up your servers into location based groups, This way client orders servers in whatever locations you offer and the correct server group is used to provision in those locations.
"i could save 400 hours a year" if its taking you 800 hours to update as you have things now then you're doing something wrong. Consider creating a custom module to bulk update your prices, i am assuming you would be doing percentage changes and if so you could do this in a matter of minutes with a very simple php script.
You only update your default currency manually (or with a script), then head into currencies and click the link to update your other currencies.
