Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

Change my data center

For the best possible website speed, the data center for your Linux Hosting account should be located geographically closest to your primary audience. To change your data center, you purchase a migration, select the new data center, and schedule a migration time as explained here.

Warning: Your website will experience downtime while it's being migrated between data centers. Unfortunately, there is no way to circumvent the downtime.

  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.

  3. In the account Dashboard, in the Settings section, select Server.
    select server
  4. Next to Data center, click Change.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Complete the purchase and click Checkout.
  7. Go back to your account Dashboard, and in the Settings section select Server.
  8. Next to Data center, click Schedule.
  9. Select the data center you want to use, as well as the best time for your site to experience downtime for the migration.
