HostGator Data Centers


HostGator.com currently uses more than one data center to house our servers. Most of our servers reside in Provo, Utah, and Atlanta, Georgia, with some residing in other locations. You can optionally activate Cloudflare, which would route your content through an additional 23 data centers worldwide.

You cannot choose which data center houses your server. Additionally, our data centers are not available for customer access.

PCI Compliance

For assistance with PCI compliance on our servers, please refer to our articles regarding PCI compliance and how we can assist you with achieving it on our servers:

Server Upgrades and Data Center Changes

We periodically upgrade our servers and systems to provide the best and most reliable customer experience possible. Sometimes, this means migrating your server or hosting account to a better server in a different data center. When this happens, we work hard at making the process as smooth as possible, with little or no downtime.

Cloudflare Content Distribution Network (CDN)

Cloudflare is a system that acts as a proxy between your visitors and our server. By acting as a proxy, Cloudflare caches static content for your site, which lowers the number of requests to our servers but still allows visitors to access your site.

If you use Cloudflare, your website will also be routed through CloudFlare's network:

  • Cloudflare (23 Data Centers Worldwide)
    • North America
    • Europe
    • Asia
    • Australia
