When non-UK customers use UK web hosting providers to host their website, there are always going to be some challenges that a UK customer would not have to undergo. Non-UK customers will come under the umbrella of International Law if nothing works between a UK webhosting provider and the customer. As a result, the legal wrangling that ensues can be long and precarious. In addition, the laws of the two countries, the customer’s country and the UK, may not be compatible with each other and hence a customer might inadvertently break the law and find him or herself in the middle of a lawsuit. The financial laws, the value added taxes law and even the employee labor laws are likely to differ from the customer’s home country. The customer should consider the law situation before deciding to host their website with a UK webhosting provider. If the customer has to fly to UK occasionally, the customer should also account for the cost of the flight.
