Thanks aakk9999 for the welcome and quick reply!
Here is a wrinkle: In the interest of speed and SEO, each subdirectory would be hosted on a local server, and GeoIP would resolve DNS for UK traffic to domain.com/uk.
However while managed DNS providers do offer such a GeoIP service, traffic can only be sent to subdomains (e.g. uk.domain.com), not subdirectories (domain.com/uk).
One solution might be to resolve DNS to uk.domain.com using GeoIP, then server-side redirect to the domain.com/uk folder, located on the same server.
So the questions are:
- Would this work?
- How would page load times be affected by the redirect?
- Would Google index the subdomain, or only the subfolder?
