Because of security reasons customers are not allowed to visit these server storage facilities, and HostGator customers cannot choose which datacenter will host their site’s files.
Note: having only 2 data centers, and both in US is bad for your site’s performance. It means that if your visitor is in India, for example, then for your site to load its files have to flow all the way from US.
This causes a lot of unnecessary latency.
The good news is that HostGator has partnered with Cloudflare and your site on HostGator servers has access to free Cloudflare service which you can enable with a click of a button.
Cloudflare operate hundreds of datacenters across the globe and your site’s files will be hosted on each of those individually.
So that wherever your user happens to live, your site is always close by ready to be served up 🙂
Note: Cloudflare is the world’s most extensive CDN.
This means that your site is simultaneously everywhere at once and always fast to load.
You get this feature with ANY HostGator hosting plan.
