What do you mean by Offshore Hosting?

Offshore hosting is nothing but hosting your website , data or application to a far off Datacenter location from your place of origin. ... Offshore hosting is often used to host or promote things that are illegitimate, forbidden or banned in their own countries.

Offshore hosting is nothing but putting your data in a server which is far away from your own location/country.

"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
However, the term implies doing so
deliberately in order to achieve a specific
goal, usually related to privacy, security,
free speech, or freedom. "

I live in Australia and my web host company is in Canada. That is Offshore.

I don't mean anything by it. I've never said those words together in my whole life.
