In 1998, the dot com craze was beginning to ramp up to unbelievable proportions. So many Internet companies sprouted up in Silicon Valley, and elsewhere, that companies not swept up in the hysteria were thought to be missing out. But, while most people were focused
on things like Content, Banner Ads and Bandwidth, Michael Reed and
Alan Ezeir, the CEO and President respectively of Global Domains
International, Inc. (GDI), recognized another opportunity that was
largely ignored; they wondered, "Besides dot com, are there other
extensions that businesses could use as a domain name?"
Mike and Alan were aware that in the mid 1990's, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) assigned each nation a country code. These codes were designed to give each country an address to use for their own Internet needs. For instance, the United States
was assigned .us, Australia .au, Ireland .ie. "We knew that a good,
easy-to-remember country code could be marketable globally as a
viable alternative to .com," said Alan. "And so," Mike added, "we
ordered some pizza, locked ourselves in a room, and went through the
entire list of countries to pinpoint the best possible code."
They ultimately focused on the domain extension .WS -- which belongs to the tiny island nation of Samoa, deep in the South Pacific. "We thought that the abbreviation .WS could be successfully marketed worldwide as the 'WebSite' top-level domain," said Mike. "There were a small handful of other viable options, but through
resolve and perseverance, we found that some countries were already
using their domain locally, and not interested in becoming an 'open'
or 'global' registry. With a population of less than 200,000 people,
Samoa had yet to utilize their domain on a massive scale. And, none
of the other countries' domains compared to the potential branding
power of .WS to signify 'WebSite'. After all," Mike happily
exclaimed, "everyone in the free world knows what a web site is!"
