We are excited about our $6.99 .WS domain name sale!* .WS is the perfect choice for your website because that's exactly what it stands for - "WebSite!" .WS is the country code domain (ccTLD) for Western Samoa, but in 2000 it became globally available for everyone to register.

In addition to standing for "WebSite," .WS also stands for "WorldSite" and has become known as a great option for Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs). .WS domains support all languages of the world, so anyone can register a .WS domain in their native language. Since only 10% of the world's population are native English speakers, .WS IDNs are a big opportunity, especially during our $6.99 domain name sale!

Using .WS at the end of your domain name can also create a domain hack. There are many words ending in "ws" that you can use to create a fun .WS domain hack. Anyone involved in,, beer (, cats (,, farming (,, snow sports (, and more can get creative and find a .WS domain hack that describes them. You can use to see a complete list of words ending in "ws" for inspiration - and there are a lot! Already have a main site on another TLD? Take advantage of our .WS domain name sale to protect your brand! You can simply forward your .WS domain to your main site right from your Dynadot account. Your .WS domain - or .WS domain hack - can also be used as your custom short link. Unlike many TLDs, you can register 2 character .WS domains (though at a much higher price). See our earlier blog post about the benefits of a custom short link and how to get one of your own.

*Our .WS domain name sale ends 3/31/13 23:59 PST and applies to new 1 year registrations only. Register your .WS domain today!

That is true of any TLD that allows 2 character registration. It is always at a much higher price, but we still want to make sure people know it is an option with .WS.

The .ws domain extension is a country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the country of Samoa, but it is not restricted to residents of the country; anyone in the world can purchase a .ws domain registration. Even better, a .ws lookup is globally recognized and works similar to a .com extension.further information please visit this site.
