WS Website Domain Name Tutorial

Ws website domain names are looking more and more like the only answer to your search for Internet specific keyword rich domain names. In addition, they offer a unique online business opportunity. Dot com and dot net names are rapidly disappearing from the registry each passing day. We've put together a ws website domain name tutorial that will answer some of the more common questions surrounding the origin and function of ws TLD's.

  • What is a ws domain name?
  • What does ws stand for?
  • What's the difference between dot ws and dot com and dot net?
  • Why a ws domain name?
  • Can I use ws domain names for my websites?
  • Can I use ws domain names for my email?
  • Can I transfer my ws domain name?

What is a ws domain name? A ws domain name is a domain that carries the ws TLD extension. A ws domain name contains all the attributes of any other generic TLD like dot com and dot net and as such, a ws domain name can be used in any form or function as the domain name owner wishes.

What does ws stand for? Originally ws was marketed as a country specific TLD for Western Samoa. Now ws is also being marketed for the generic term "website."

What's the difference between dot ws and dot com or dot net? There are no differences whatsoever as far as usability and functionality. The only difference is that the TLD is dot ws.

Why a ws domain name? It's no secret that your domain name should be part of your marketing strategy. Some search engines use domain names in their ranking criteria and your domain name should also function as a headline for your business. Dot com and dot net keyword rich domain names are disappearing rapidly. The only alternative to obtain a keyword rich Internet specific domain name with a ws TLD.

Keyword domain names are not trademarked or copyrighted; they're first come first serve, so no matter how relevant your business is to a specific search term, you won't be able to claim any right to its use unless you register it before your competition does. If you've lost out on dot com or dot net names, then a ws website TLD could be the answer. In addition, many companies are registering the ws TLD to go along with their dot com and dot net domain names. If you think this isn't a concern of some major companies, think again…Some big time corporations have registered their names with the ws TLD extension along with dot com and dot net.

Can I use ws domain names for my websites? Yep…of course you can use ws for your website just like any other TLD.

Can I use ws domain names for my email? Absolutely…your email will function exactly the same with a ws TLD as any other TLD.

Can I transfer my ws domain name? .ws domain names are non-transferrable.
