We also provide a service called CloudFlare which serves pages from proxy servers throughout the world.

Dear HostGator,

Why don't you have servers in other countries? My target audience is in the UK and I have been told that I should choose a host that has servers in the UK and that using servers in the USA would significantly affect my page download time.

We are announcing a new feature by October 1, 2010 which will greatly decrease page-load times. I will update this comment when we launch it.

Any update on that new feature? :)

The new feature is called Cloudflare.
