If you are looking for a good domain name, but it is not available with your desired domain extension, one alternative we can offer you is the country-code extension for Samoa – .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 increasing globally since then. If you are not sure what is so special about it, just have a look at the actual abbreviation “ws” – for quite a few people it stands for “web site” or “world site”, which makes a dot WS domain appropriate for any type of website, regardless if it is local or global.
The .WS country domain is operated by the SamoaNIC organization under the supervision of the local Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Given that there are no rules on who can secure a dot WS domain, any individual or company can get one. With our firm, it will take minutes for your domain to be fully operational. Transfers between domain service providers are also allowed, so you can move your .WS over to us and start handling both your domain and your hosting account from one single place instead of going through two different providers. For the transfer, you will have to obtain the domain’s transfer code from the present domain provider.
