I have been wondering is there a difference in hosting a website in a foreign country versus just using a domain froma foreign country??

Ex. I want to make a website for people in the United Kingdom

Which of these scenarios would work best and why?

Buy a .uk domain and host in USA.

Buy a .uk domain and host in United KIngdom.

Buy a .com and host in United Kingdom.

I have tried to find information on this online but i figured someone here might have had experience with this.

I would think that it doesn't matter where you are hosted as long as you have a .uk domain it would be searchable from http://www.google.co.uk.

Thanks in advance for any information on this.

That's correct. It doesn't matter where the site is hosted.

Thanks for the reply. I also finally found a decent page on this. SO i figured i would pass it along since there was 19 views and only 1 reply.
Here's the page:

There was some good information in there i almost forgot about using google webmaster tools to set a specific geographic target. All in all a good read.
Thanks again
