WS is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Samoa. The WS country code has been advertised as a domain hack, with WS ostensibly standing for a website or web service, providing a "global" Internet presence for registrants as it supports all internationalized domain names. Popular use of the domain by news organizations to shorten URLs, mostly with the suffix "(organization name) new.ws". Domains of any organization can be registered in the WS zone, regardless of the specifics of their activities. The domain is suitable for sites of any subject and is a good alternative to .com, .net and .org domains, which have few beautiful names left. To date, more than 161,000 names have been registered in the WS domain.
The WS Domain Control Panel allows you to configure NS, create Glue Records, and renew your domain.
You can buy a WS domain for up to 10 years. An order to renew a WS domain registration must be submitted before the expiration date, or no later than 28 days after the expiration date. If this is not done, the domain will be automatically deleted and the status will change to redemptionPeriod. Restoring a WS domain from redemptionPeriod is possible at a cost of $100 (1 year renewal included). Check with our support team about the possibility of restoring a WS domain.
