What is GDI Global Domains International, Inc? The co-founders are Michael Starr, CEO, and Alan Ezeir, president, for this decade old website and domains registry company based in California. Global Domains International, Inc. (aka “GDI”) is a debt free corporation and home of all .ws “Web Site” domain names (web addresses) worldwide. It provides an opportunity for anyone to have an online presence for themselves or their business so customers can find them. It is why their slogan is “Your Internet address for life”. GDI have been ranked in the top 50 of the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies. It earns revenue by the registration of .ws Internet domains, in addition as hosting sets and site building tools. The company does not market in a traditional sense; rather, products and sets are sold by affiliate members in a multi-tiered commission structure.
What Is .WS? .ws (dot ws) is a globally easy to reach top level domain that works just like.com and.org. Anyone, anywhere, can register a .ws domain and establish their personal Internet address for life. It is easy to remember; it stands for WebSite! in addition as a website, Global Domains International provide users with hosting and 10 free email addresses at the chosen domain. They also possess domain forwarding. If you are inexperienced with website creation they have a “SiteBuilder” facility which utilizes a cutting edge drag-and-drop interface. There are also premium domains obtainable if you are after something popular such as “try .ws”. The .ws domains are accepted globally and work just like any other top-level domain. Because.com names are now much more difficult to acquire, GDI stresses that the WS domains are nevertheless quite open for opportunity. The cost to be an active affiliate is ten dollars (USD) per month which provides all benefits just mentioned.
How Did .WS Come About? It is an amazing story. The two founders of Global Domains International (GDI) locked themselves in a room and went by domain extensions, being aware that many countries had their own address. for example, the United States had.us, Australia.au, UK.uk, They came across .ws which belonged to Samoa, an island in the Pacific and knew another different to.com would be tremendous. Both flew and went to Samoa, meeting many including the chief Minister and King.
To cut things short, ultimately, in November 2000, less than nine months after launching, GDI announced it had sold over 100,000 .ws registrations to customers such as Yahoo, Cisco and Dell in more than 180 countries. And the Samoans? They hypothesizedv that as a test, the owners had to produce 15,000 registrations in three years. That was achieved in the first month.
Samoa now receives a percentage of all .ws domain sales that GDI generates, and is delighted with its success especially since .ws represents that everyone in the free world knows what a website is.
