    Question Starting a Website & Registering in US or Abroad

    I am in the US on H1-B work visa(Texas). I am looking to start a simple website from which I expect revenue in the form of advertisements.

    I am looking at the following ways, which I think could be legal, to get the money to me. Can someone please help me understand which of the following ways may be acceptable?

    1. I wish to register the website aboard (for ex: in India) and also provide my back account number in India for getting the revenue that I receive the advertisements. Is that acceptable as per US H1-B immigration laws?

    2. I register the website in india itself and direct the revenue from advertisements towards a paypal account, and then get cheques from there. Is that acceptable?


    If there is an alternative way(s), please let me know.


    thank you very much.

    Doing side work for an overseas company while on an H1B visa isn't a problem, even if you own it. You're not allowed to work for a U.S.-based employer.
