WordPress data center locations.
Hello, I am working with my legal department for a site that’s hosted on WordPress and they need to know WordPress’ data center locations. Anybody have that info or know where I can find that info? I’ve been Google-ing like crazy and nothing has come up.
It looks like it would be a long list.
WordPress.com runs on thousands of servers located in several separate data centers in different parts of the US and around the world.
Thanks for sending that over. All they require is the country location.
Our servers are located all over the world, your content is essentially mirrored and served from the datacenter closest to the viewer.
Got it. I don’t have a compiled list right now, but here’s a map visualizing what we use for WordPress.com:
If you view source for the page, you can see a list of countries with those servers. Does that help? I just worry about what happens if / when we add another location.
Thanks for sending over those links. That would help, what do I look for in the page source code to see those list of countries? I’m not a coder. I know how to access the page source code (working on a Mac and I just did right-click –> view page source)
As far as for what the future holds, we can cross that bridge when we get to it :)
I think you will find it easier to extract the country info you need from the publicly available list here: https://www.peeringdb.com/net/6460
Hope that helps. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
@amonty35 I see under your account that at one time you had the site proeliumapparel.com connected to WordPress.com via Jetpack, but that seems to no longer be the case.
Because that site is hosted at Bluehost, it does not use our data centers, so you may wish to consult with your host directly as well, to confirm the data centers they are using. We are not involved in storing data for that site. https://gwhois.org/proeliumapparel.com+dns
Hope this helps!
Your site is not hosted with WordPress.com. It is a site using the open-source WordPress software (from WordPress.org) but hosted with GoDaddy, so knowing our server locations won’t help you much with that.
To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities: https://wordpress.com/support/com-vs-org/
But, the folks you’ll really need to speak to about this are at GoDaddy: https://www.godaddy.com/help
Wow, had no idea! Thanks for clearing that up, will reach out to them.
