How can I find out the location of my hosting. Because it was set up by the administrator. Can anyone share the link if there is a possibility.

Which datacenter are you in?
Under your droplet name you should see a line like “1 GB Memory / 30 GB Disk / NYC1 - Debian 8.8 x64”

the NYC1 (or SFO2, or TOR1, etc) indicated which data center the droplet is in. That should also tell you which country.

@ephemer

Use the ip address of your droplet to locate where it is

geoiplookup <ip_address>

Hope this helps.

It’s mentioned below the droplet name in the droplet list as well as on the droplet page itself.

I looked everywhere. I can not find.

It’s not always clear what these identifiers like mentioned “NYC1” mean. I have for example “AMS3”.
I think there should be added explicit information about this in the panel.
If I had many droplets spread across multiple locations, I’d like to be able to search by location.
To be honest I am very surprised that even information is not there - Amazon EC2 console has it way clearer, so something to improve for #digitalocean
