    INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE DOMAIN FOR GLOBAL BIZ

    After the potluck (un)conference, WebCoast, I signed up for a WordPress.com blog (ObjectiveMoney.wordpress.com). WordPress.com / Auttomatic was one of the sponsors of the conference and they had some informative and inspiring sessions. See my comment and the photo (I am wearing an orange t-shirt and my Lyceum cap, sitting on the right side of Kalle Blomqvist of NetZpider).

    I was first thinking of using the domain name, ObjectiveMoney.net, for my blog on WordPress later on, but after I checked the cost of the premium plan of $99, I put it on hold for the time being.

    Recently a friend of mine, mentioned that you could get an alternative international domain (.ws) from Global Domains International (GDI) and conducting a global online business at the same time. I had been introduced to GDI already in 2006, so I knew about the business opportunity and the story about how Western Samoa became the symbol of WebSite / WorldSite.

    I recommend you to watch Doug Llewelyn's interview with GDI's CEO Michael Starr & President Alan Ezier on Moving America Forward with an introduction by William Shatner.

    I will build a website / blog on www.ObjectiveMoney.net sometime in the future, but for now it is information about WebSite.ws. If you are interested in the business opportunity, as a GDI affiliate, I recommend you to check out GDI Team Elite by clicking this link.

    Have you come up with some funny and catchy domain "hacks"? Personally, I am fond of my personal lifestream powered by RebelMouse at Martin.Lindeskog.name and TeaParty.nu (now in Swedish / nude in French).

    It is a sign that internationalized domain names are big business, when GoDaddy is doing a world wide marketing effort. From Anita Campbell's post, GoDaddy’s International Push: A Goal to Serve Very Small Businesses Everywhere:

    While the internationalization of GoDaddy offerings may be of some help to U.S. based businesses that want to expand into other countries, that’s not the main driver of GoDaddy’s international expansion. Geographic expansion is really about GoDaddy meeting the needs of small businesses located outside of the United States.

    There are over 200 million small businesses worldwide, including the United States. In the United States 50% have a website, but outside the U.S. the percentage without a website is much larger and the opportunity is very large, Irving says.
