Which server location should I choose?

When you have few options, it’s easier to choose the best one. In Cloudways, you get more than 65 options. Therefore, it becomes harder to select the best server location.

Let’s see a quick guide on how you can select the location that is right for you.

Selecting a Cloud Provider

Most people first choose a location and then select a cloud provider. This is one of the biggest mistakes you will make. As Cloudways acts as an intermediary, not all the locations are available. If you choose to go with AWS, you can only select the location that is available for AWS.

Therefore, you need to select a cloud provider first. Once you have selected it, you will have narrowed down the options. If you want to see which options, you can always go above to the “Cloudways server location” section where we have classified the location based on the cloud provider.

You can then see the rest of the options to select the best location.

Audience Location

The best way that is preferred is to go with the audience location. If you have the majority of the audience from a specific country, you can select the data center in that location. In this way, the website will load at the fastest speed possible. When the server location is near to the user’s location, the data gets served faster.

To make your work easier here, we have also added the exact region where the city falls. So, if you have the majority of the audience from the west region of the US, you can select one of the locations that fall in the west US.

Privacy and Security

The next thing that you can look for is privacy and security. Sometimes, we must host the data in the data centers of the same country. It’s important to understand that all the data centers have to follow the local rules of the country.

For instance, if your server is in the EU, you will have to follow the GDPR. The same goes for other countries. So, you can select the server based on that.

Final Words

To conclude, these are all the Cloudways data center locations. There are more than 65 locations available across the globe. You can select the best one as per your choice.
