InMotion Hosting Support Center

Which Data Center is My Server Located in?

All of our servers are housed in Data Centers exclusively located in the USA. To find out on which coast (East or West) your server is located, log into your Account Management Panel to view your Account Technical Details and find your server name.

If the name begins with "ec" (i.e.: ecbiz###, ecres###, ecded###, ecld###) then your server is housed in the East Coast Data Center.

Conversely, server names that do NOT begin with "ec" (i.e.: biz###, res###, ded###, ld###) are housed in the West Coast Data Center.

For VPS customers, you can use the results of a traceroute to determine the server location (following the same naming convention).

Example output for East Coast VPS:
