WP Engine: List of All Data Center Server Locations (UPDATED)

It’s a simple fact that WP Engine uses some of the industry leading data center facilities — with Google and Rackspace you can be sure to achieve the best possible uptime, latency and performance standards for your website.

This is a complete list of data center locations deployed by WP Engine.

US Data Center

Previously WP Engine has used Rackspace and probably other facilities in Texas. Now it seems they have been migrating to Google Cloud in California, where new websites will also be likely hosted — available for all plans.

  • Location: Mountain View, California
  • ISP/Organization: Google Cloud

UK Data Center

Available for all plans.

  • Location: London, UK
  • ISP/Organization: Rackspace Ltd.

Belgium Data Center

Available for all plans.

  • Location: St. Ghislain, Belgium
  • ISP/Organization: Google Cloud

Hong Kong Data Center

Only available on dedicated VPS solutions.

  • Location: Hong Kong
  • ISP/Organization: Unknown (possibly Rackspace)

 

Choosing the Best Server

The most obvious choice here for many is Google’s massive data center in California. It’s easily the best global solution and perfected with a good choice in CDN (also provided by Google themselves). Those looking to penetrate the Asian market with fast page loads, WP Engine has a great Hong Kong location with low latency and good connectivity to mainland China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific Region.

For those with Europe as their main target, the location choice is between Rackspace in London and Google Cloud in Belgium. While I would encourage to do your own research, I would note that since there is a shift from Rackspace to Google initiated by WP Engine themselves, perhaps good reason are behind it. Also Google has a good uptime record on their cloud.
