I have a website on a single server at the moment in Germany. Load time of my site in Germany is 579ms, whereas the load time in USA / China is about 5 seconds.
I thought when I switch to DigitalOcean, I would have a cloud server, which is better accessible from all countries. However, when I created my Droplet, I was forced to pick a region.
So I wonder now, if a Droplet is again just a server in some region, how is this a cloud? And what can I do to reduce loading time in other countries for my site?
