iWeb has a team of network engineers dedicated to reducing network latency through investment, maintenance and partnerships with the best networking component suppliers. And now we have a range of worldwide data centers where you can deploy dedicated servers: our green Canadian data centers or a choice of data centers in Amsterdam, California, Dallas and Singapore. We also offer a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to cache and serve static website content faster from a worldwide network of data centers according to the users location.
