Online business not only belongs to modern countries as United States, Canada, or United Kingdom; instead, it belongs to citizens of all countries in the world. By that it means, although you do not live in powerful countries, in which online business firstly wide spread, you can establish your own online business, and build your business’ website. The most crucial element in building a website is webhosting plan, which allows the surfers access your company or business’ website. Before online business internationally spread, Webhosting Company is only available in the pioneer countries; nowadays, you can find Webhosting Company or provider in any country in the world.
Whether you are living in Japan, Indonesia, or other countries in Asia, South Africa, Egypt, and other countries in Africa, you can find many of webhosting companies in your own country. In common, these webhosting companies are offering common types of webhosting, such as Dedicated Server webhost, Shared webhosting, VPS, Managed webhosting, and collocation webhosting. Some online businesspersons might think that local webhosting company (the common term for Webhosting Company based in outside US, UK, and some countries in Europe) is the perfect webhosting to host their website. Some other website owners, on the other hand, probably think that International Webhosting Company (those that are headquartered in US, UK, and Europe) is the best company.
While some businesspersons have made their decision, some other online business newbie are probably still in the middle of both Local and Abroad or International Webhosting Company. If we examine further, before choosing local or abroad company, there are indeed several important factors to consider. Choosing the wrong webhosting company can possibly result to the failure in your online business marketing and to your business or company’s future ahead as well.

To attract more users to use the local webhosting service, these companies are usually offering free set up or installment. The monthly price is considered much lower, because it is somewhat adjusting the currency of certain country. Due to the similar geographical position (between users and web surfers), websites that use local webhost usually have greater possibility to be on the local search engine.
Some popular search engines, Google for instance, are providing certain database for certain country. Hence, using the local website will make the website owners to maximally use SEO technique to enhance their website’s popularity. Another benefit offered by local webhosting company is that the webhosting technical support is located in the same country; by that it means, it will be much easier to reach the webhosting company’s headquarter and contact number.
However, local webhosting companies might be not offering the same top quality, features, and services to the abroad or international companies.
