    Is an American company able to host a .com.au domain on their US server?
    Hi there,

    I am setting up an Australian based business that will be distributing an educational program from the US to Australian schools.

    I have registered the .com.au domain here in Australia for the Australian market. I am wondering if it is OK for the American parent company to host the .com.au website domain on their own server in the US?

    Any advice gratefully accepted!

    Cheers

    Yes it will be fine. But I would use a CDN, Content Delivery Network, which will speed up your website for vititors in Australia.
    And around the world.

    While it's true that any hosting anywhere can host any domain, it does help SEO a little (*) if it's in the same country and it's also faster.

    If you have a small website that doesn't get too much traffic, you're fine hosting in the US. If you have a massive website that does 4TB a month, there are other issues (speed/latency, SEO through geolocation, bandwidth cost) but that's probably not your issue.



    * Most of the in-country benefit can however also be achieved by setting the target country in Google Webmaster Tools

    There is no rule for country related or hosting server. You can host any domain on any web server. Only thing is pointing the DNS.
