Re: Why is this Community hosted overseas?

Besides this forum's speed issues, how often I get the attached "server not found" error is unbelievable!

Why is this Community hosted overseas?

One of the reasons why we are so plagued by autosave issues is because the Community is hosted on an overseas platform.  This is a crazy way of doing things, exposing us unnecesarily to slow connections high latency and high RTT's.

See the trace route below and ping results.
