    Best Hosting With Global Availability

    So, I've been with a lot of hosts in last 6 years. Currently I'm with Cloudways with a DO droplet.

    The only problem is that the people near to my datacenter have good load times due to low TTFB. But on the other places away from my datacenter, TTFB is pretty high which makes the load time miserable.

    Now, I know CDN should help here to make the site contents load from their nearest server. But the issue is that CDN only caches the static contents of a site like CSS, JS, and images. While the dynamic PHP is still loaded from your actual root server.

    So, is there any hosting provider that let's you choose multiple datacenters at once?

    If that is not possible, then is there any CDN provider that serves the entire site including the dynamic part?

    My goal is to have the lowest TTFB around the globe. If there's any other suggestion then kindly let me know

    Running dynamic sites distributed across the world is very difficult, but can be done with varying degrees of success depending on the nature of the site. A brochureware site is a lot easier than an e-commerce site for example.

    Some dynamic sites *can* be cached at the edge, but it very much does depend on the nature of the site and may require some changes to the site itself. Again, this lends itself more to brochureware site than e-commerece sites.

    Assuming that the dynamic elements of your site are backed by some form of database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB etc.), your issue is always going to be that either you still have to come back to a central point for the database (which means latency between PHP and the database and thus your TTFB will still be high), or if you also distribute the database then you either have to sacrifice performance or consistency/integrity.
