If you are searching for a good domain, but it is not available with your desired extension, one option we can offer you is the country-specific extension for Samoa – .WS. The TLD was created in 1995 using the abbreviation for Western Samoa, the name of the country until 199.9 and its popularity has been mounting worldwide since then. If you are not sure what is so extraordinary about it, just look at the actual abbreviation “ws” – for a lot of people it is short for “web site” or “world site”, which makes a .WS domain suitable for any kind of website, regardless if it is local or global.
The .WS country top-level extension is managed by the SamoaNIC organization under the supervision of the national Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Having in mind that there are no provisions on who can reserve a .WS domain name, any individual or entity can get one. With our company, it will take minutes for your domain to be accessible on the web. Transfers between service providers are also permitted, 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 companies. For the transfer, you will have to obtain the domain’s transfer key from the current domain service provider.
