Countries that host on foreign soil.

Most websites are hosted in the country they belong to. However there are exceptions to the rule. Sometimes country tlds are hijacked, for example the Colombian .co domain has been popular as an .com alternative.

Also in some countries the hosting structure is so poor or expensive that it makes more sense to host websites in neighboring countries. Sometimes even on the other side of the world.
This list has been generated by checking the IP address of each website against an IP-Location database.
