I guess the location of the host doesn't matter ::)

Offshore hosting is nothing but hosting your website , data or application to a far off Datacenter location from your place of origin. There are many reasons for taking your hosting offshore, reasons like hosting copyrighted content, DMCA content , Hacking websites, adult content and warez hosting are few amongst them. There are servers that run/host a website except its located in another country. Many people use this because it is much harder to shut down legally and harder to contact.

What do you mean by location? Off shore or something like residing in UK but server in US?

For the most part it does not matter however you can encounter increased ping, handshake etc the further the server is away from the client so it makes sense to have servers in the same area as your target audience.

If my company was targeting UK people I would almost definitely buy UK servers.
