    Your site won't be any safer from "hacking" if you host offshore.
    Website security depends on the software you will use to build your website (Wordpress, Joomla, etc).

    If you're targeting a certain demographic you could find webhosting in that area (eg. a german website would do well to host in Germany and use a .de domain).

    I use namecheap for hosting they are good and also get a domain with extension related to your targeted country.

    You can use Google Webmasters Tools and set GEO targeting for any domain, .com included.

    Good support and cheap hosting don't go well together - you'll have to decide which is more important to you.
    EZPZ hosting is pretty good though and they offer servers in UK, US and Asia.

    Quality offshore hosting is available from koddos company.
    They are proven to be the best in this real.
    And their prices are not high.
