    The location of the servers. People have a preference because the location of the server determines the laws the host provider has to abide by.

    Small correction: the opposite of "offshore" is actually "inshore" (though "onshore" can also be used), though neither "inshore" nor "onshore" are very often used.

    The word "offshore" by itself just means to move something from one country to another, but in the webhosting industry, it generally implies that the server is located in a country that has more relaxed laws or rules (usually for adult content, spam, gambling, or other material that might be considered objectionable).

    In general, in the web hosting industry, offshore hosting means hosting outside of the US.
