  1. That’s pretty neat, I got amazing speeds to the LA datacenter. However I didn’t see where in the order form you can choose a datacenter, and the 20/mo port upgrade is a bit of a pain.

  2. Thats cool that you got amazing speeds. Currently, if you want to choose your DC, you can contact an SB sales rep and they will make sure it goes in the location you requested. We are working on a new shopping cart that will give customers the ability to choose their location during the online ordering process. $20/mo for a port upgrade, we chose that price point a while back so we probably need to re-visit and see what makes sense.

  3. Cool, thanks for the clarification, I think I’m going to try this out.

  4. Is there a good way to find out where a SB server really is? (I’ve had one SB server get installed in the incorrect data center.)

    I’ve tried several different IP address -> geographic location services, but the results are often inconsistent.

  5. From what I have seen, the IP breakdown is:

    64.x.y.z Virginia
    66.x.y.z Texas
    72.x.y.z California

    I’ve had servers in VA and TX, so I know those from first-hand experience. I’m not 100% on the last IP range.

  6. Charles, you can find this information here:
