My father who lives in Europe (and is not American) wants to create a .com website to host some of his work.
A friend of his thought it might be best for his business (the site would serve essentially to show photography work) if the site were registered here in the US, and he seemed to think you would need to be a US resident in order to do so. I am both a US citizen and resident, so that wouldn't be an issue.
I have a few questions:
In general, is there anything that being a US resident/citizen will allow me to do that wouldn't be possible to a non-resident/citizen as far as website registration/hosting?
Do those limitations include the site extensions one can use? For example, would a non-resident/citizen be able to register a .com extension?
Does the address of registration actually matter at all?
