.WS Domain History & Purpose

.WS Domains from an ICANN Accredited Domain Registrar

The history of .WS ccTLD (country code Top Level Domain name) began back in 1995 when it was established to serve as a country code TLD for Samoa. The abbreviation .WS stands for "Western Samoa" since that name was used by the country until 1997.

The extension .WS can be easily associated with "WebSite". This makes the domain extension attractive to individuals and companies searching for alternative TLDs. The ccTLD is suitable both for personal and business websites - you can register "yourname.ws" or "yourcompany.ws" for example. Today .WS is among the most popular "open ccTLDs" (ccTLDs without registration restrictions) along with .CC and .TV, with promising future in the domain name market. An .WS domain registered now might turn out to be highly profitable investment in the future due to the lack of available domains from general TLDs like .COM, .NET and .ORG that are suitable for certain purposes.

If you own a business website, you may consider the option to register your .WS domain for a period that is as long as possible (notice that .WS domains can be registered for up to ten years). Thus, prospective customers would be more willing to have business relations with you when they see that the company using the domain has plans for the future and it is not a short time business venture.
