hen you get your website hosted to some far off place from your place of origin for one of the various reasons, it is called 'offshore web hosting'. The reasons may vary from person to person. Some of the common reasons can be low price, enhanced features or overall improvement in services that attract users to go for offshore web hosting.

Who opts for offshore hosting?
Normally, we see many developed countries outsourcing their hosting needs to developing nations, but it also happens the other way round. People in developed nations go for lesser developed nations to get low-cost hosting, while the users in developing nations opt for more developed countries to get better features and advanced confidentiality and security of their data. Few people even opt for offshore hosting to promote things that are either illegitimate or banned in their own countries.
