Having a website which can be identified as being British brings numerous benefits. Firstly it helps provide an element of trust to your UK audience – if people are going to type in their bank card details then many of them will be reassured if it’s a British site. Secondly, having a “UK” website helps you be associated with brand Britain – which has its advantages when trying to appeal to a global audience.
