Our next hosting journey’s stop is in Australia. Today we are excited to announce the launch of our first server location in Australia and our 8th globally after our recent global expansion to Bangalore. Our customers have been requesting a region in Australia for a while now, and we’re thrilled to announce that it is now finally available.
Developers, startups, web designers, and small business owners throughout Australia will have better connectivity and a more significant overall experience on our cloud hosting platform. New and existing customers can now host their sites in our newest region, Sydney.
As you may have already noticed, the place and the date weren’t chosen randomly. First of all, because 26th January is the anniversary day for Australian people.
26 January marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip.
Today the significance of 26th January is extended, communities and families are celebrating the diverse society and landscape, and, also, the Australian history.
In the past month, Australia’s destiny was challenged once again. People around the world followed breathlessly the events evolution, and now they are waiting for this continental-country to reborn from its ashes.
But amazing people can do amazing things, even in the hardest situations. That’s our belief. And that’s why we do not doubt that this country will rise and shine again. If you can help the ones in the need, there are lots of ways to donate.
Why did we choose Sydney, Australia as our next server location?
Launching our web hosting in Australia is our response to our clients’ requests. We always base the next server location decisions on the feedback received from our customers.
Australia is that kind of market where every smart-tech business wants to be. People are aware of the internet’s importance. The number of new companies is growing fast. Thousands of new websites are created yearly, and online consumers’ behavior is becoming more refined and specific.
As an Australian report shows, people’s interest in the cloud services is continuously growing, year by year. According to Gartner’s latest forecast, demand for cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) will present the fastest-growing market, almost doubling from $652 million in 2019 to $1.2 billion in 2022.
Why is it so important to choose the server location for your website?
The server location does have an impact on your website’s speed from the end-visitor standpoint. Hosting your site closer to your location can boost how fast your site loads and help with local SEO rankings. For your business, it’s best to choose a server that is closest to you and your clients. A closer server location means serving up your site in a fast and efficient manner. The lower your latency, the quicker the page loads.
So, take a look at the following insights to get the real feel of what a closer server location means for your website:
The server location on which you host your website plays an essential role in your overall network latency and TTFB. In general, network latency and TTFB should be as low as possible.
Testing shows up to an 88% reduction in TTFB when serving customers from Australian cities compared to using our region in Singapore.
The web performance test analyzed the load times of a website in our Sydney, Australia region, and returned a breakdown of the following attributes (starting with the second column):
- Status: Returns the HTTP status codes, such as 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, 5xx, or error.
- DNS: Returns domain name system (DNS) lookup time.
- Connect: Time it takes to connect to the webserver. Under 200 ms will result in a green indicator.
- TLS: Overhead of TLS connection on an individual asset.
- TTFB: Time it takes from when a client makes an HTTP request to it receiving its first byte of data from the webserver. Under 400 ms will result in a green indicator.
Hosting your site closer to your location can boost how fast your site loads and help with local SEO rankings.
