Google’s long awaited seventeenth Google Cloud Platform region located in Los Angeles, is now open and thus also available in the Templ.io Control Panel.
Hosting WordPress websites in the new region can significantly improve latency for end users in Southern California, and by up to 80% across Northern California and the Southwest, compared to hosting them in the previously closest region, Oregon. You can visit www.gcping.com to see how fast the LA region is for you.
Paul-Henri Ferrand, President of Global Customer Operations, officially announces the opening of Google’s Los Angeles cloud region.
Except for the new Los Angeles region, we also have these locations to choose from right now:
South Carolina, USA
North Virginia, USA
St. Ghislain, Belgium
São Paulo, Brazil
Changhua County, Taiwan
