    This might not be the correct place to ask so forgive about it.
    My question is: can a website be load balanced according to the region of the visitor using CPanel? If so how?
    The scenario is simple:
    - I got two servers, one in UK, one in US;
    - I got some websites that I'd like to serve like this: for US visitors send them to US server, for rest of the world, send them to UK server.

    The thing is that I don't know if this can be done by adding subdomains like: and since that might cause to lose it's rank (but I'm not sure if that will hold true or not) plus the initial load time of the site will be increased for US visitors for example if I keep the UK server as main server.

    So can this be achieved by other means / with relative ease from CPanel?
    Any links/tutorials/help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    from cpanel i dont think so - but you can do this via DNS services.
