App Server Geographical Proximity?

When I visit the Retail app login page at www.lightspeedapp.com to login to our own shop, I notice that we are always redirected to the subdomain, us.lightspeedapp.com, even if connected to a VPN server in a faraway geographic region . This makes sense, I suppose, since our shop's physical location is in North America.

But do users with shops in Europe or other parts of the globe get redirected to domains and servers located closer to them geographically? If so, is there anyway to know which subdomains through which they are accessing the app in their locale? And if so, is there anyway to determine this server via the API?

I'm asking, because we have an app that generates links to Lightspeed retail url's and it would be nice if we could provide a localized link for shops around the globe to minimize redirects.

Thanks.
