Do you sometimes wonder where your data is temporarily stored when you send it over the Internet? At TransferXL, that question is easily answered: Instead of storing your important files “somewhere in the cloud,” we give you control over where your transfer files are stored.
Choosing the server location: here’s how it works!
In the settings, you can select where your transfer is physically stored under “Storage region”. By default you will end up at the storage region that is closest to you (in technical terms, closest in terms of lowest latency). However, you can easily change the region manually.
At the moment, there are four options available:
- Europe (Germany)
- USA (Virginia)
- Asia (Singapore)
- South America (São Paulo, Brazil)
What are the benefits of choosing the server location?
So, if you’re traveling in the US but don’t want your files to be stored on servers in the US, just switch to “Europe” and upload your files.
Also, if you know your recipient is located in another region of the world, you can speed up the download by entering their region or their closest region.
We will add more regions in the future, stay tuned!
