Global Domains International, Inc. is a domain name distribution company that have sole resell rights to .ws domain names.
Global Domains International, Inc. is built on the .ws domain extension, something that is officially the domain extension for Somoa. The founders of Global Domains International, Inc. acquired the rights to market the .ws domain extension as “an open or global register” as Somoa only has a population of 200,000 and with little interest in utilising their domain extension for local businesses etc. Global Domains International, Inc. offer an affiliate program to market their product which utilises a multi level marketing setup.
As stated above Global Domains International, Inc. sell .ws websites which the founders of Global Domains International, Inc. , Michael star and Alan Ezeir market as meaning “website”. What you sell as an affiliate of Global Domains International, Inc. is a complete package of domain, website and email for $10 per month.
How to Apply
In order to sell Global Domains International, Inc. domains you have to sign up yourself which comes with a 7 day free trial and costs after this of $10 per month (a flat rate). Application is handled online and there doesn’t seem to be any real criteria to join other than a willingness to pay to the monthly fees.
Global Domains International, Inc. give their affiliates $1 for each person that they sign up and then an additional dollar for any other signups under their signees. This kind of operation is multi level marketing in arguably its most questionable form.
There are 3 immediate downsides to Global Domains International, Inc. that immediately spring to mind. The first is that the affiliate program follows a classic pyramid layout. There is a product in place though making Global Domains International, Inc. a legitimate operation although others may not see it that way. The second thing is the pay scale. At $1 per signup it is going to take a lot of work before you start to see a substantial income. This brings me onto my third point which is this, when have you ever seen a .ws website? Global Domains International, Inc. claim that a number of large companies own the domain but by searching around this seems to be more to stop the name being misappropriated than the power of the .ws domain extension.
This obscurity will more likely than not make it difficult to register an interest in this from new users, especially given the fact that most .net websites can be bought reasonably inexpensively and carry far more weight.
