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.

    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!

    The problem is very rich as the navigation itself jigsaw puzzle

    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 ...

    Absolutely... I don't get it. There are so little informations about this very serious (outside of the u.s.) topic. I've even wrote them an e-mail a while ago.

    Hi,
    Jörn here, stepping in to help.
    Thanks for the feedback regarding the bot. It's a work in progress but the numbers says the bot is helping us a lot. People are getting answer right away and we're getting some vital information needed for for faster response.
    We are monitoring the wish list closely. And many items have become reality already.
    We are not actively working on a cookie consent management system. Not out of the question that we will in the future though.
    If you don't want to rely on third party solutions the only options is to build one yourself.
    Personally I've checked many of these out and the one I ended up using is
    https://www.cookiehub.com/
    Company from Iceland.
    Let us know if you have any follow-ups, other questions or concerns.
    Kind regards,
    Jörn 🇸🇪
