Domain registration Samoa
The official domain name extension for Samoa is .WS.
Registering this domain extension is definitely a strategic move for those companies with interests in Samoa or that are looking to protect their trademark within the country.
Samoa (formerly Western Samoa, up until 1997) is a Polynesian island presidential republic located in the South Pacific Ocean. The archipelago is made up of two main islands, Savai’i and Upolu, and several small islets.
The islands of Samoa are volcanic and cover a total area of 2,944 km². The population is almost entirely Samoan and numbers 183,081 in total, most of whom live on the larger island, Upolu, which is also the location of the only urban centre of any size: the capital Apia. The official languages are Samoan and English, though German is also widely spoken. The local currency is the Tala. The country’s main resource is agriculture (coconuts, cocoa, bananas, sugar cane), though tourism is a growing sector for the economy.
