  Advantages Of Offshore Web Hosting

For a small or medium-sized company it is often confusing when it come to deciding how to approach the idea of offshore web hosting.  Even the concept of offshore business itself is sufficiently challenging. If a company has previously relied on traditional business methods it could seem too extreme to even consider dealing with the complexities of a move offshore at the same time.

However, ignoring the advantages of offshore web hosting could be very short-sighted and the financial, privacy and liability related consequences of waiting could be dire.  

First, it's important to know the basics of offshore business.


  Locating The Right Offshore Web Host

It is now possible to run a business from virtual cyberspace while living anywhere in the world, choosing the most preferable jurisdiction as a tax base, and using any number of jurisdictions as they may apply to manufacturing, distribution, banking, web hosting, and other related factors.

Choosing the right jurisdiction to locate your offshore hosting in will depend on a combination of your business situation, financial goals and even to some extent your personal choices. There are several factors that should certainly be considered when doing your initial research though.

Web Hosting Technology
Technical considerations are the most important factor in evaluating any hosting service. IN selecting onshore or offshore web hosting you will want to keep in mind the following factors when choosing an offshore web host.

Privacy and Confidentiality
Some people believe that it is their right to have absolute privacy in their financial, business and banking affairs as conducted over the Internet. In most countries this can be very difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish due to the lack of privacy in the resident country's web hosting systems.  Other countries, such as  The Bahamas, have strict international compliance standards and first class hosting facilities but also offer a high level of privacy and confidentiality.

Asset Protection
In today's society, whether you are an individual or corporation, you are susceptible to law suits. This can place your assets and future at risk. By hosting your web site offshore, and setting up an international corporation, you can protect your business and your assets from creditors and possible nuisance lawsuits. This can be further accomplished through utilization of vehicles such as trusts, International Business Corporations, bank accounts, and other options.

Favourable Tax Laws
One of the most attractive elements of offshore business in countries like The Bahamas is the tax-free status accorded to income. There are no taxes levied on capital gains, corporate earnings, personal income, sales, inheritance, or dividends. This tax freedom is available to all resident corporations, partnerships, individuals and trusts.

Offshore Banking
An offshore bank account is an indispensable tool for those conducting international business - particularly online business. If you are keen on working on the net and earning income from the many business opportunities available - then an offshore account combined with a merchant account offers a powerful tools to accompany your offshore hosting.
