Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 58.1% of all visits is Ireland. It lies approximately 3330 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up Freelancer.ie page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to Ireland or just closer to the user base.
