Changing region of deployed Netlify site

Hi all,

Having issues with slow site. It’s a NextJS site which runs fine locally, but deployed on Netlify runs quite slowly, this is due to my Planetscale database connected being in ap-southeast-1

Site-name: life-line-med-staging
Site-id: 65f6cf60-0719-4549-8fe9-e1318b017d35

From what I can tell the site is currently deployed in a US region which is what is causing the slow load times.

Is it possible to change the deploy region of the site to the same region or nearby of my database in ap-southeast-1, or any other possible solutions.

Any help is appreciated, thank you

Hi @Asher_Chan,

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Netlify’s Support Forums!

We can change the function region, the default location is us-east-1, but you’ll need to be on the Pro tier for us to make that change - that’s a requirement that applies to everyone who wants to change the default region. You can upgrade to Pro easily through the Netlify UI dashboard.

If you let us know when you have upgraded, we can change the settings for you to ap-southeast-1!
