Launching or hosting your website in some other country by being at your place of origin is called an offshore web hosting. Not only website, you can also host data or an application at a far distance and control it being in your place. There are number of reasons why people do this anonymous offshore hosting like using the copy rights content in their website, to hack other websites or to use adult contents. Few sites are worth doing offshore and they are mere business oriented. There are also some disadvantages in allowing or approving offshore hosting.
One of the most important reasons why they do offshore hosting is due to some restrictions. Some websites or some content are banned, illegal or forbidden in the country. Such contents or such things are marketed through this type of hosting in other countries where it is legal or allowed. Say for example, casino games are completely banned in the Asian countries and hence they have no option than hosting these websites where they are legally allowed. This might help them greatly in getting a place to host their website and to make money through that. In general, there are three types of offshore hosting and they are
- Offshore shared hosting
- Offshore vps hosting
- Offshore dedicated server hosting
One of the most economical method among the three types is the offshore shared hosting. This offshore shared hosting is a very common choice for many new business owners. When you are looking for a chance to start your website oriented business like video marketing or article marketing then this type of hosting can be useful. Also you can use anonymous offshore hosting to get you website hosted and add your contents to the website. This can drive more views to your content easily.
