The Power of .WS

We’ve talked in the past about the power of .WS in this post and also about the transition away from .com. With the face of the internet and domain names changing, .WS sites are popping up in more places than ever before.

One reason that .WS domains are so powerful is that they can be used globally and have no specific affiliation to any country or language, essentially keeping them open and not barring anyone from use because of language or country. .WS domains also allow the purchase of domain names you may never have a chance to buy or afford in the .com world. While other ccTLD domains are now seeing use outside of their original country, .WS has been an established and profitable domain for 12 years. Finally, .WS domains are indexed just like .com domains.

Take a look at the photo below if you need more proof. No special search, no tricks. .WS is just as powerful as .com and here to stay.
