I am new at shopify and I heard that Shopify servers would be mostly located in the US. Is it correct ?
a French resident, I am considering using Shopify for my business which is focused mainly towards South Korea and China territories, quite far from the US anyway, and I am concerned about store speed performance.
Is this an issue, and in that case, how would it be possible to ask for servers closer to south Korea ? or all in all, server location is a not a key in the store performance, and servers in the US would still be OK (do you have an idea of speed performance with the latter configuration) ?
thank you !
It won't be a problem, don't worry.
Shopify uses CDN, which is a large network of servers placed across the globe so your customers can load your online store quickly, wherever they are.
'Shopify's CDN is operated by Fastly, one of the most reputable CDN companies.' I found these information on https://www.shopify.com/website/hosting
So don't worry at all about store speed from server. Just focus on building pages that don't contain redundant code and optimizing images on those pages and it will be fine
Hope that helps. If it is, please give me a 'like'
Thank you very much and have a nice day!
Pagefly responded correctly about hosting and you don't need to worry about this.
Your main concern will be choosing the theme and optimized content of your store. Before installing, you need to test the theme through Pagespeed, then after installation again. If the difference is big, then delete the theme and choose another one.
You can do the same with apps. For all the time working with Shopify, these are the main problems of low performance.
If you will have problems with the speed performance at your store, do not hesitate to send me a message here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our agency will be glad to help you.
P.S On parle français aussi
As someone already mentioned below, server would not be an issue. Its totally okay.
I'm also Korean and selling some product at here. If you have another issue about this area, please feel free to ask me.
