Does it matter where the web host server is located when the website is for the UK?

    Am a little confused. A lot of people use a different website to register a domain and to host the website. Why not do it all at one host?

    Was thinking of using HostPapa or iPage to host my website. But am worried as it is a co.uk, meant for ppl in the UK but the server is located in the US. Would that be a problem?

    Ideally you should buy your domain and hosting from separate companies, that way if you have a problem with one, you don't lose everything.

    You should have your site hosted in the country you are trying to target.
