European Data Center

With the new European Union draconian data protection law set to take effect on May 25, a couple of questions about GoDaddy's European Data Center.


1. Where is it located?

2. If a site is hosted at the European Data Center, is any of its data ever transferred outside of the EU?

3. If a site is hosted at the European Data Center and a GoDaddy site backup plan is enabled, where is the site backup maintained -- at the European Data Center?


Thank you! (and the EU clock is ticking!)


Re: European Data Center

I know it's in the Netherlands, but I can't answer your other questions. Hope that helps to some small degree! You probably need to contact hosting support to get a proper answer on data transfer, etc.
