Hi! My website has no need to be hosted in the US as the users are in EU. Is it possible to change hosting servers somehow with webflow?
No + No need
using Content distribution network (CDN)
Powered by Amazon Web Services & Fastly.
A CDN distributes your files throughout data centers worldwide, then delivers them to visitors via the data center that’s closest to them. https://webflow.com/blog/what-to-look-for-in-a-web-hosting-service
Its the best hosting technology out there ==> So it does not really matter (Europe VS USA).
The idea is different from the “old” hosting approach (One server located in London for example). To fully understand the idea behind read AWS docs.
Evaluating a hosting service’s speed means measuring how quickly your content loads in your site visitors’ browsers, no matter where they are. If your site’s files are hosted on just one server, in one place, then visitors will see slower and slower page loads the further they are from your server.
The solution is to store and distribute your assets in a content distribution network (CDN). A CDN distributes your files throughout data centers worldwide, then delivers them to visitors via the data center that’s closest to them. This means snappy page loads for all your visitors, worldwide.
What is a CDN?
Since July 16th 2020 european websites CANNOT be hosted on USA servers. The option to choose geolocation is now a necessity or we can’t use Webflow anymore…
