MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson announced the site to users logging-on to the main site from Britain, with the promise of more UK music and better local postal code searches and other services.
However, users were also asked to agree to the site being hosted in the US for legal reasons.
"My lawyers told me what I have to tell you: now that MySpace is looking more UK-ish, you should know that we are still running our site from the US, all your data still resides in the US, and MySpace's data management practices are still governed by US laws," said the statement.
