.WS Domain Names
If you are looking for a good domain, but it is not available with your preferred extension, one alternative we can offer you is the country-specific top-level extension for Samoa – dot WS. The TLD was established in 1995 using the abbreviation for Western Samoa, the name of the state until 199.9 and its popularity has been rising worldwide since then. If you are unsure what is so unusual about it, just look at the actual abbreviation “ws” – for loads of people it is short for “web site” or “world site”, which makes a dot WS domain suitable for any sort of website, regardless if it is local or global.
The dot WS top-level domain is managed by the SamoaNIC organization under the supervision of the national Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Taking into consideration that there are no rules on who can get a dot WS domain name, any person or organization can get one. With our firm, it will take minutes for your domain to be fully operational. Transfers between registration service providers are also permitted, so you can move your .WS over to us and start managing both your domain and your web hosting account from a single place instead of going through a couple of different providers. For the transfer, you will have to request the domain’s transfer authorization code from the present registrar company.
