The Internet’s Transition Towards International Domains

One of the reasons the .ws World Site IDNs are such an amazing investment opportunity is that you have access to millions of domains names that are either no longer available or extremely expensive to own as a “.com.”

You may have already noticed the trend away from .com names as your browse the Internet or use social media sites. Short country code top level domains (ccTLD) are everywhere these days. Click a link on Twitter, chances are it ends in “.ly.” Shortened Facebook links end in “.me.” This is more than a new trend; this is the changing face of the Internet and domain names.

What are the two main features that set Global Domains International (GDI) and and .ws World Site apart from these other ccTLDS now being used by commercial entities?


  • GDI was one of the first companies to begin offering a ccTLD for commercial use effectively making .ws international from day one. With over 10 years experience doing so, we know how to market and position .ws domains and have already had much success. GDI is also the registrar for .ws, meaning all of the rights to .ws are owned by GDI. The experience, established business and internal power and notoriety of .ws World Sites is virtually unmatched by other ccTLDs being used commercially.
  • .WS stands for World Site. People accessing other ccTLDs and shortened website names generally have no idea what the meaning is behind that ccTLD. This is because it isn’t marketed or promoted. Visitors do not give any thought to why many shortened names end in something like .ly or what it stands for. But .WS stands for and is marketed as World Site. .WS is the best ccTLD to show that your company and your website are international.


But you don’t have to take our word for it. The New York Times recently wrote on the importance of new short ccTLDs and their benefits to business. “One reason for the renewed push [for ccTLDs] is a shortage of potential names ending with the most widely used domain suffix, ‘.com.’ More than 90 million ‘.com’ addresses are already in use, and the companies that sell them say few combinations are still available.”

This signifies the ending of the strictly .com age and opens the doors for .ws to be a powerhouse.

With the Internet turning away from .com and towards ccTLDs to tell the story, now is your chance to capitalize on this opportunity. Purchase your .ws IDN today and be at the front of the changing Internet landscape.
