Our USA Data Center and CDN Network Just Got Bigger
We are happy to announce that we have increased the number of our data centers and CDN locations in the USA. Our clients may now choose among four US-based data centers to have their sites hosted as close as possible to their visitors. What is more, we already have six US-based CDN edge points, which help improve the website speed in the region as a whole for all our CDN users.
4 Data Centers in the USA
With the introduction of three new data centers, we now have four locations in the USA, all part of the modern Google Cloud infrastructure that ensures high redundancy, fast connectivity and multi-layered security:
- USA North in Council Bluffs, Iowa — best for websites that have visitors predominantly from the northern US and/or Canada
- NEW: USA South in Dallas, Texas — best for websites that have visitors predominantly from the southern US and/or Central and South American countries
- NEW: USA East in Ashburn, Virginia — best for websites that have visitors predominantly from the Eastern US states
- NEW: USA West in Los Angeles, California — best for website that have visitors predominantly from the Western US states
When choosing which of our data center locations is best for you, you should take into consideration where the majority of your website traffic is coming from. In case you have a strictly local audience, it is best to have your hosting account placed in the data center closest to your audience.
You can check where an existing hosting account is currently placed and order a relocation, if you think there is a better option for you through Client Area > Marketplace > Hosting services > Hosting relocation.
6 CDN edge points in the USA
We are also aware that many of our clients receive traffic not just from one state, but from many and it’s hard to choose one, most convenient hosting server location. For such cases any US-based data center is a good choice for being the original home of your site. However, the best site loading results will be achieved by using our CDN. The CDN makes sure that a copy of your website is accessible from a location closer to your visitors from all over the USA, and even from all over the world.
We now have the following CDN locations in the USA: Council Bluffs (Iowa, USA), Moncks Corner (South Carolina, USA), The Dalles (Oregon, USA), Los Angeles (California, USA), Ashburn (Virginia, USA), Dallas (Texas, USA).
