Please work on European Hosting to comply with GDPR

I have several clients in Europe (germany and switzerland) and I love Webflow, but they are all very concerned with data privacy and complying to GDPR. Especially now with the current privacy shield solutions. Please, please work on an European hosting so you don't loose valuable customers. I see this issue popping up on so many webflow groups (facebook). More and more freelancers as well as agencies are moving back to WordPress bc of that significant issue.

    Screw you webflow with your pathetic support and your lack of engagement with the community regards to features and updates on serious issues. I pay $888/year to host with Webflow and rest assured I'll be moving to a different platform when I'm due to renewal.

    Hey guys, this is quite a serious topic right now because and especially of GDPR. The other day I read Microsoft is building data centers in Europe to comply fully with GDPR.

    Not sure whether the Webflow team is planning to do anything about this, but it is quite serious and lots of people could get into troubles.

    Is there any way to sort this kind of things? Or any explanation or suggestion on how to possibly sort this "problem" out?

    Thank you guys for any answer and solution.

    Can we add California CCPA while we're at it?

    Seems like a great plugin opportunity... we should open source a github project to tackle this.

    This is definitely something that needs to be prioritised on the Webflow platform.

    It's a massive consideration for GDPR, SEO and site performance (to non-US visitors).

    This would be a really great solution and would be such a helpful tool to have. However, in the meantime, for those working in Europe (just so people arent missing out on such a powerful design tool), there are a few Cookie solutions that do comply with EU regulations.

    Osano cookie consent has a tutorial on how to implement it in Webflow and is free if you have under 5000 site visitors per month (although in order for form submissions to work it has to be set to 'permissive' rather than 'strict')

    For anyone intergrating Tag Manager, I believe you can get Cookiebot through there although I don't use it and don't know how it works.

    EU has the right to deny you to service EU customers though. Most people in EU seem to assume that this means that you have to comply , but that is not the case historically on the internet (e.g. china russia turkey): It is up to EU countries to ban those foreign companies , the companies themselves are not legally obliged to comply.

    This must be the #1 priority! Webflow's European market could de jure vanish in months if this does not get solved. Surely worth the investment for the whole of europe!

    Plus, expectations about "green IT" are increasing, and being able to choose an European Green Hosting would be great !!!

    +3 for European hosting. We can only start using Webflow if European hosting becomes an option.

    You already use AWS and could let your customers choose which AWS datacenter their website should be hosted in (like Frankfurt, Germany).

    When you think about what you can do with Webflow! However, you cannot use it because you are in the EU.

    I have been loving Webflow from the distance but wont touch it any further until there is EU hosting. Finally being able to use it has been one of my biggest professional fantasies over the last two years. It seems tedious to keep checking to see if anything has changed. So far that has been a very disappointing experience. In the end Webflow is missing out on a huge opportunity in Europe… which I just don’t get.

    This needs to be adressed. Or they lose a lot of People in the EU. That would be such a shame ...
