HostedInTheUSA.com is a trust mark provider that validates a website is physically hosted in the United States of America. If certain standards are met- a website/business owner may purchase our trust mark which is a validation seal placed on their website. This in turn provides reassurance to the consumer by guaranteeing that the website has met our criteria and is indeed hosted in America. A site that does not bear our trust mark has not been certified as being hosted in the U.S.A. by our organization.
HostedInTheUSA.com was founded in 2011 with a mandate to provide consumers with assurances that websites they are visiting and providing personal and confidential information to physically reside within the geographical boundaries of the United States of America. We encourage all enterprises that wish to conduct business in America to have their websites hosted in the U.S.A.
Internet security and online safety is the highest concern for anyone purchasing goods and services over the internet. A website that bears our trust mark has been certified as being physically hosted on a server located in the United States of America. Websites hosted in the U.S.A. are more easily held accountable for legal remediation as they fall under the scope of American laws and the Federal Trade Commission. Making purchase from websites hosted in the U.S.A. doesn’t guarantee you won’t become a victim of identity theft. But it does ensure you have an opportunity at legal recourse under state, local and federal laws. Buying goods and services from websites hosted in the U.S.A. adds to your internet security.
