Did you know that there are now 20 million plus dot-com domains and 34 or more million domains worldwide rising to 500 million in the next few years. It is anticipated by Intel apparently that every computer will have its own domain name, or rather the name of its owner, in the future.

Now since the 1990s country codes have been in use – like .au (Australia), .ie (Ireland), .uk (United Kingdom) and .hu (Hungary) and so on. But now there is .WS ( Research shows that .WS is Samoa's domain registration.

So what is going on?

Well, in 2000 two bright entrepreneurs (now GDI) managed to persuade the Samoan Government to allow them to be the registrar for .ws as the obvious global domain name (= website). Samoa, a tiny island nation of 200,000 souls in the Pacific receives a percentage of the sales.

Obtain one of these global domains from GDI (Global Domains International) for any purpose -- businesses, personal sites, clubs, schools, communities, churches or temples, etc. -– it has never been easier to join the revolution. For further information about GDI try this .ws –
