Cyber threats and surveillance are just two reasons why companies are thinking carefully about where to store their data. There's a number of countries that are considered a safe haven when it comes to secure storage and processing of data, and Switzerland is an obvious choice for many.
During the last couple of years, offshore hosting has become more popular, and for good reason. In this article, we will cover the main benefits associated with offshore hosting, the reasons to host offshore, disadvantages, tips for a smoother experience, and why Switzerland is an ideal location for this activity.
To kick things off, offshore hosting represents the practice in which a website is intentionally hosted outside the owner’s residence country. There are numerous motives for which a person or business entity may choose to host their website on an offshore server.

During the last couple of years, people throughout the world have become more aware of the impact that climate change is having on the environment. For those who do not know, the actively increasing carbon footprint has massive effects, including, but not limited to: rising temperatures, changing up precipitation patterns, shifting the way plants grow, rising sea levels, shoreline erosion, interferences with crop growing, diseases, economic losses and more.
During the last couple of years, there have been increasing concerns related to how secure web-based hosting for websites really is. The worries mostly pertain to the rising anti-privacy laws appearing in the United States, where some of the world’s top web hosting companies operate. Security has become extremely important for website owners, who want to protect their own data, such as applications, databases and internal operation protocols, but who are also keen on protecting private customer data and information.
With this aspect in mind, for many website owners, the United States is no longer a viable solution for their web hosting needs, as website and customer security can no longer be guaranteed. In return, webmasters throughout the world have to think outside the box, and consider webhosting providers in countries, with more lenient regulation.
