A few weeks back, Pressable introduced a control panel feature that allowed you to select your primary data center. Now, we’re excited to announce that a fourth data center – located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands – is now available.
While this feature affords you greater control over website performance, choosing a specific data center is entirely optional. If you choose “No Preference,” the Pressable algorithm will select the best data center available from our WordPress managed hosting platform. As is usual, your sites have multi-region redundancy and WordPress automatic failover to ensure reliability and availability.
Should I Use the Amsterdam Datacenter?
If a majority of your web traffic comes from Europe, Africa, Russia, the Middle East or Central Asia, the new Amsterdam data center will be your ideal choice. To see if a majority of your traffic comes from these areas, log in to Google Analytics and click Audience > Geo > Location. The map and legend will provide insights into which countries and regions provide you with the most visitors.
Need Help Selecting Your Datacenter?
The Amsterdam server is up and ready to use today. If you need help selecting it, just chat with a Pressable customer success representative by logging onto the my.pressable.com dashboard and clicking on the orange icon at the bottom right hand of your screen. You can also email us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
