Strawballs - thanks for that. I have just started a website namely www.aitchbee.com (nothing on it yet).So potentially my website could be seen by the planet and this website is just available to uk surfers?
It's a UK based site but it is world wide. www stands for world wide web!
You can assume that anything on the internet can be read anywhere unless the site is blocked or has security restrictions. Some of the questions we get are from non-UK users. Some of are regulars are based in Spain, Thailand, Crete, etc.
All websites can be seen anywhere in the world, as has been pointed out. The only exceptions are in countries (like China) where the government censors access to some internet content.
We have lots of international forum registrations from all kinds of countries, and of course our content is available to anyone via a Google search. There are forum members in America, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, all European countries, Africa, and some from South America.
Obviously the bulk of of our members are UK residents.
