Regional hosting companies are those which provide their hosting services in a particular region, territory or country. If your online business is limited to the USA or UK e.g, you have the option of hosting your site with some local provider. The advantage here is the ease of dealing with them (they are after all easily accessible by phone call or a visit), your familiarity with the local laws and easy recourse to those laws should it be necessary. It should be your choice if your target audience is local (e.g a US or UK based fast food delivery service). On the other hand, hosting it in USA has the advantage of faster access for what is probably the largest number of your overseas visitors (particularly if you have an English-speaking audience). The following companies provide Web Hosting services in US / Canada and the UK respectively.
