Can we choose the location where a replit always-on instance runs?

I am from India, and in my Python app I would like to make HTTP requests to a server that is geo-restrictions to only respond to requests from India.

Is there a way I could deploy my app on Replit and make it work?

Hi, it appears you asked this question four times, but I'll answer it here.

In theory, the Replit client should automatically connect to the server closest to where you are. After Replit started to globalize, they put servers in many countries, including India. So by default, your web app should be running on the India server. If it isn't, there's no way to manually override the server that you're on. Maybe make a Feature request?

Hey, sorry for the repeated question, it may be due to laggy internet. I'll delete them.

by default, your web app should be running on the India server.

Oh okay, I didn't know that, thanks! I'll also add a feature request.

@apugoneappu The same happened to me for the repeated questions
