We always roll out new locations alongside Google Cloud Platform and are excited to announce that the data center in Mumbai, India is now available for hosting your WordPress sites. Kinsta now has 13 Google Cloud data centers you can choose from, allowing you to place your website in a geographical location closest to your visitors. This ensures low latency and blazing fast load times.
According to Internet World Stats, India has over 462 million internet users. So for those of you who are primarily serving customers and visitors in this location, it can be an instant way to decrease network latency and your time to first byte (TTFB).
Previously the closest available data centers were in Singapore and Taiwan. This location is now available from within the MyKinsta dashboard when you go to add a site.
If you are interested in moving your existing WordPress site, simply open up a support ticket. Moving locations requires an IP address change and additional steps from our team.
According to the Google Cloud team: “Hosting applications 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.”
