The .ws extension belongs to Western Samoa, a small island in the Pacific, and is often taken as an abbreviation for "web site".

Open to all, this extension does not require you to be a resident of the island in order to purchase a .ws domain.



The renewal isn’t automatic. We will warn you in advance so you can do it at the given price and extend the domain name for one year. It must be carried out before the domain's expiration date otherwise the domain will switch to quarantine status for a 30 days period before being removed. During this status, the domain is no longer active but can still be restored.



A charge is made for transferring an .it domain to Infomaniak, since the domain is also "renewed" as part of the procedure: the domain is then valid for 1 year upon transfer.

Change of ownership


The procedure allows you to transfer a domain name to a third party.
