Great news for our users and friends in India!
India’s Google Cloud Platform region has arrived and is now available in the templ.io Panel. We always roll out new locations alongside Google Cloud Platform and we are really happy to say that the data center in Mumbai has now arrived.
According to Google, hosting a website in the new region can improve latency from 20-90% for end users in Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and of course Mumbai, compared to hosting them in the closest region, Singapore.
Except for Mumbai, India, we also have these locations to choose from right now:
- Oregon, USA
- South Carolina, USA
- North Virginia, USA
- Iowa, USA
- London, UK
- Frankfurt, Germany
- St. Ghislain, Belgium
- São Paulo, Brazil
- Tokyo, Japan
- Changhua County, Taiwan
- Sydney, Australia
- Montréal, Canada
- Eeemshaven, Netherlands
