Offshore hosting is basically web-hosting of your website in a different country than the one you reside or your business is located in. Examples are high-tech and developed countries like the UK, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Russia, Lithuania, Holland and Luxembourg.

Why is off-shore hosting important, necessary or relevant to me, you may ask?

Fair question! There are several good reasons for choosing offshore web-hosting, and here are a few:

  1. Often overseas hosting may be cheaper than domestic webhosting;
  2. Your target demographic may reside in that foreign country, and hosting your website there may offer substantially shorter page load times;
  3. The content of your website may be frowned upon in your native country. Gambling, lotteries, downloads, torrents, software, and porn comes to mind. These, and other types of websites with questionable content, may be acceptable and protected better off-shore against take-downs, than in your own country;
  4. It may be a matter of privacy, personal safety, political views, or freedom of speech.

So, whatever your considerations, from a practical standpoint, offshore web-hosting may offer you much better alternatives than hosting in your domicile.

Why not do your own research right now and see for yourself if offshore hosting will work for you!
