Where are the Rackspace data centers (DFW, LON, HKG, etc.)?


Rackspace has data centers across the globe to better serve you. They are in cities like Dallas-Fort Worth, London, and Hong Kong, but are referred to in the control panel and APIs by their three letter symbols: DFW, LON, and HKG. You may provision your account in any data center. You may see a complete list of Rackspace data centers on our Global Infrastructure page.

If you have already provisioned your account and want to find out which data center you are in, log in to your control panel and view the test link for one of your sites. If your test link contains "dfw" in it, such as http://www.domain.com.php5-1.dfw1-1.websitetestlink.com, your account is in DFW.

The following is a list of available data centers:

  • Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)
  • Chicago (ORD)
  • Northern Virginia (IAD)
  • London (LON)
  • Sydney (SYD)
  • Hong Kong (HKG)

Note: At this time, ORD is only available to customers already provisioned there. If you are a new customer, you may open a ticket in the Cloud Control Panel to add ORD to your account, pending approval.
