    We're still looking to get into Australia in 2015, hopefully we will have more info on that at the end of Q1.

    Thanks!

    Thats a great step! @Moisey Uretsky: In order to be able to really use DigitalOcean here in Germany you will need to be certified according to ISO 27001. Is there a plan to do so or is Digital Ocean already certified?

    Germany is better for Turkish users, compared to Netherlands, because Turkey is directly connected to Germany. 2 hops less for me if you open datacenter in Germany.

    It would be great to have a DigitalOcean data center in Germany. The Frankfurt are would be best, since there is the DE-CIX and many great data centers are there. I can totally recommend the TeleCity group there.

    it seems the IP I got from DigitalOcean is located at Düsseldorf (myLoc managed IT AG), not the Netherlands.

  • Anonymous commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    Would that make sense? I mean... The Netherlands (Amsterdam) are not even that far from Germany geographically speaking.

  • LazyTiger commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    @Director: Since DigitalOcean is an American company, the location of the datacenter doesn't matter. If you want to fully benefit from German laws, you should look for a German company.

    i would give +10 for this. +5 speed in central / east europe +5 legal reasons = +10

  • Alkin commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    Cloudflare has a free plan that works fine. While AMS datacenters are available a new datacenter in the middle of europe wont be necessary but a datacenter in hongkong or idk middle-east. east europe etc datacenters would be more useful than Frankurt datacenter.

  • Chris commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    I think the one in Amsterdam will suffice.

  • Jeffrey A. commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    *sigh* There's already a datacentre in Amsterdam.

  • Heihachi commented

  • Filip Oščádal commented

    you can use CloudFlare for better overall performance

  • Chris commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    I would like this so much. Greetings from Germany: for speed and legal reasons!

  • Jeffrey commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    Why need this? We already have two in Amsterdam.

    with even better Latency for most europe
    and germany based geo-location

  • srdjanxxxxx commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    I vote for Frankfurt would be much lower latency and you would have more customers use your server to host cs 1.6 server latency is 80 to 50 Frankfurt Frankfurt is much better

  • Sasa Stankovic commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    Amsterdam location much worse latency, Frankfurt is way better for all European ISP, better latency.
    My vote is for Frankfurt.

  • Jean-Philippe Ansel commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    I think offering the option to geolocate the droplet IP in Germany or any other European country would be a better idea. OVH.com has offered this for many years.

  • Anonymous commented

    this would be an ideal place for a data center. Better than London as Germany uses the net 2nd only to the United States

  • Delorean commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    It's great to have the servers in Amsterdam so we can access all those websites about weed.

  • Markus commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    AMS is 50km termination point to N. America, vs 500km.

  • Sascha commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    One more reason, why you want a server in Germany: the IP address.

    To me, it's better to have one outside Germany. I'm thinkin of blocked YT videos for example.

  • LazyTiger commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    Looks like a different thread is carrying more votes. Perhaps you should consolidate your votes, with theirs: http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digital-ocean/suggestions/4296967-datacenter-in-germany-preferably-frankfurt

    Routing to Frankfurt is way better for almost all European ISPs than routing to Amsterdam. Of course this is not a top priority, but something to keep in mind for later.

  • Jeffrey A. commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    There's already an Amsterdam location, so I don't see why it would be needed to open another location in the neighboring country...

  • Jerome commented
    September 11, 2018 18:11

    That would be awesome! A better latency for whole Europe.
