The timezone setting on our hosting servers depends on the physical location of the particular server.

  • Our servers in the Hong Kong data center are in the HKT time zone (UTC/GMT +8 hours).

  • Our servers in the US data center (Boston, MA) are in the EST time zone (UTC/GMT -5 hours). During the summer, when Daylight Saving Time is in effect, the time zone is changed to EDT (UTC/GMT -4 hours).

  • Our servers in Europe are in the EET time zone (UTC/GMT +2 hours). When Daylight Saving Time is in effect, the time zone is changed to EEST (UTC/GMT +3 hours).

You can check our Changing the server timezone in PHP scripts article for more details on how to change the server timezone for your PHP scripts.
