    Registrar and hosts outside the USA

    Hi,
    While looking through hundreds of registrars and webhosts, I've noticed some are in Canada, the UK, one in Tehran, Iran. Is there any disadvantages to go with one of these?

    Thanks for your answer, ggray97

    I would say the only disadvantage would be telephone support but not many Hosts offer that feature.

    The majority of those overseas Hosts servers are located in the US due to the high cost of bandwidth in their own countries,

    Just remember - the Internet has made the world a very small lump of real estate

    Yeah, avoid using the one in Tehran for any church sites
