    • We can migrate the application between the US, EU, and SA zones for an administrative fee.
  • I’m located in Asia/Australia; which cluster is best for me?
    • It really depends on where the majority of your users are. Contact our support to get specific addresses of the servers so you can test the speed and see for yourself where you get a better response time.
