What do you mean by Offshore Hosting?

“Offshore Hosting” basically just means 

that the servers of the hosting company 

are not in your country. For example, 

much of Facebook is hosted in Ireland 

(this was true several years ago, so I 

assume it is still the case). 

A definition I found somewhere on the web: 

“Offshore web hosting is the practice of 

hosting a website on servers located 

outside of one’s own country. Usually, 

this is done to gain specific benefits.

Technically, anytime you host a website 

on foreign servers you are engaging in 

offshore hosting.

However, the term implies doing so 

deliberately in order to achieve a specific 

goal, usually related to privacy, security, 

free speech, or freedom. “
