How is it with DMCA takedown notices? Do offshore hosting companies usually ignore DMCA & copyright issues?

Offshore hosting is used to host websites whose services or content are illegal, prohibited, or restricted in one's home country. Casinos, for example, are illegal in India.

If some users want to start an online gambling or casino website, they must host it in a country where it is legal, such as the United Kingdom or the United States.

Although this is not the only reason people choose offshore hosting, there may be others, such as hosting copyrighted content, DMCA content, hacking websites, and so on.

If I specify a target country for my product, I want to get hosting in that country. For example, I am in the United States, but my target market for my products is the United Kingdom. In that case, I will host my website in the United Kingdom, increasing the likelihood of my site ranking in the United Kingdom. It will also lengthen the time it takes for the site to load in the United Kingdom.

I hope this information has given you some ideas about offshore hosting.

Offshore hosting is the process of transferring your website, data, or application to a Datacenter located outside of your country of origin. There are several reasons to move your hosting abroad, including hosting copyrighted information, DMCA-compliant content, hacking websites, pornographic content, and warez hosting.

Even when hosting takes place outside of your home country, the term "offshore" is utilised to get around local rules. These servers are situated in nations where internet regulations are either still developing or not as rigorous. Additionally, offshore hosting is fading. People use it to get around copyright rules, but as you can see, large torrent giants are dying, and I don't believe it will be able to go around copyright regulations in the near future.

Offshore hosting refers to a hosting service situated in a country with privacy laws that are less strict compared to the country where the website owner resides. This allows the website owner to host their website anonymously or without needing to adhere to specific regulations.

I was wondering if anyone could explain me what does offshore hosting mean? I viewed some offers on this forum and they are offering offshore hosting but I don't know wha it is. Is it something different with normal web hosting plans? what is good and does it have any benefit when using offshore hosting?
If the servers are located at a distant place which does not fall in within the jurisdiction of the country (A) then hosting can be given to the same users whose website were considered illegal in the country (A) but elsewhere it is legal.
