|If there is a reason why a hosting server has to be in the UK can someone please back this up with an explanation? |
Yes, how else do you determine geographic location? Obviously language wouldn't work well.
I'd try a tracert on your website as I have yet to see a non-UK hosted domain appear in UK results.
(I am only speaking from my 5 years of experience, I have not tested this across 100's of sites - there may be exceptions.)
