Konnichiwa, Tokyo! Our 7th Datacenter Location is now available!

As of today, our second Datacenter location for the Asia-Pacific region is available for all shared hosting plans. This is also our 7th Datacenter Location and yet another step to bring the best possible hosting experience closer to you.

Konnichiwa, Tokyo!

We choose the locations of our data centers in large part based on where we can most improve network performance. Japan has been one of the problematic regions for network providers. In our case, in particular, traffic from Japan usually experience higher latency to our US and EU-based hosting infrastructure, leaving our clients with only a single option – Singapore. With our new Tokyo facility, ping times from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan as well as China are now averaging under 40 milliseconds.

Performance and Testing

Tokyo is our 7th destination, where you can host your website closer to your visitors. This includes Chicago (US), Dallas (US), London (UK), Frankfurt (DE), Amsterdam (NL) and Singapore (SG). You can test the performance from your location to Tokyo (JP) and see if it matches your requirements for speed. As always, you can also expect a solid security, constant 24/7/365 monitoring and a modern data center that will allow you to build your website, instead of worrying about the hosting part.

Our services in Tokyo provide the same hosting features, which includes our five layers of caching, custom WAF, Network Firewall and everything else to keep your website fast and secured.

All new clients can easily select the new data center during the order process for all our Shared Hosting plans. Existing clients can also enjoy the new location by requesting a migration from our experienced 24/7 Technical Support team. The migration process is handled quickly, with care and we will make sure that you do not have to lift your finger to transfer your websites to Tokyo. As always, the migration of your account would be completely free!
