What Is Offshore Web Hosting?

Approx. read time : 3 min

Offshore hosting is nothing but hosting your website , data or application to a far off Datacenter location from your place of origin. There are many reasons for taking your hosting offshore, reasons like hosting copyrighted content, DMCA content , Hacking websites, adult content and warez hosting are few amongst them. There are servers that run/host a website except its located in another country. Many people use this because it is much harder to shut down legally and harder to contact.


Offshore hosting is often used to host or promote things that are illegitimate, forbidden or banned in their own countries. For example, Poker and casino is banned in India and other Asian countries, and to host these websites/content, there is no other option than offshore hosting to an Asian customer.

Depending upon the websites/web apps that you wish to run, and your specific requirements, you need to decide which offshore hosting package is actually required. Following are the types of offshore hosting packages.

  • Offshore Shared Hosting

Shared hosting is the most economical and common choice in offshore hosting. This allows multiple users  to take advantage of shared resources of a physical server to publish their website and setup online presence.
