I have set up a website for my business and I want to know whether this means that I'm (the owner of the website) now subject to personal jurisdiction anywhere in the world?

I think the whole question of jurisdiction depends on the country. Each country has its own jurisdiction.

To my understanding, in the US, most states use what is known as the "long-arm statute". Basically, a "long-arm" statute subjects foreign defendants to the jurisdiction of that state as long as the foreign defendant has some connection with the state.

Maybe you can read about this more online.
