Pinged Server far from where I am


I run two sites on Siteground (server in Chicago). I live in Japan but when I ping the domains, the IP comes back as a Cloudflare server in San Francisco. Clouflare has servers in Tokyo, shouldn’t it come from there?

Thanks so much.

Still new to this but think I understand. :wink:

What it comes down to, with an Anycast address the physical address where the IP address is registered is essentially meaningless,
