Had an issue with accessing our companies website the other day.  Did a trace route on it and it traced to North America. Use Geobytes IP address locater to find it's located in Toronto, Canada..  Is this another case of Telecom outsourcing or is this normal??




Regards,

Unless a contract stated the site would be held in NZ, Id say its normal to a point.

I'd very very unsurprised, given that email for Telecom is all outsourced to Yahoo! - and that looks suspiciously like it's hosted in .au

I know it's really up to your contract etc and buyer beware etc, but you would have throught that NZ's largest ISP and Telco would host NZ sites in NZ, keeping local content local and all that.

It would mean better performance and a more reliable service as there is less standing in your way between your website and your customers.

But each to their own, what are the ping times like to your website? Perhaps they are using a managed link in their own data centre in Australia (or is it Canada?)
