Why Choose .ws?
As a newer domain extension, .ws was originally established in 1995 as a country code top-level domain (ccTLD). “WS” is an abbreviation for “Western Samoa”, which was the nations official name in the 1970’s. Although we know what “ws” actually stands for, most web users associate .ws with “web site” or “web services”. Because of this, .ws provides a global Internet presence to registrants, as it supports all internationalized domain names, meaning, (unlike most ccTLD’s) .ws can be obtained without any restrictions.
One major reason to go with a .ws domain extension, it almost always ensures you get the domain name you want, whereas choosing (for example) .com, your preferred domain may already be in use. One down side to this extension is the price, .ws is one of the more expensive domain options. Like previously stated, typically, web users associate .ws with the web service industry, so if your site fits into that category, .ws might be the perfect extension for you!

Questions About .ws
Once the order is submitted to us and the EPP code is validated an email will be dispatched to the administrative WHOIS contact with a link that must be clicked in order to continue with the transfer. After this link is clicked the old registrar has five (5) days to release the domain to us.
While many registrars will either approve the request automatically or email you an additional link to get them to approve the transfer immediately, some do not and you may have to wait the full five days for the transfer to complete.
On your My KnownHost panel page you'll be presented with a form to update the Registrant, Administrative, Technical, and Billing WHOIS contact info. If you have domain privacy enabled on your domain this information will not be public.
Per ICANN policy a domain cannot be transferred within 60 days of its registration or last transfer. This applies to domain registrations being transferred to us as well as away from us.
