Have had the domain for over seven (7) years. During that time I have had an issue or two. They provide a place to state your issue, and say they will reply within 24 hours. So far it has been seven years without a reply. There is no number to call. Very frustrating. Trying to setup email through an air card. I can recieve mail but since I don't have an ISP I can't send mail, and can't find a suitable solution.
About website.wsIn 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 Starr 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?"
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!"
"The truly exciting thing about GDI making the Inc. 500 List is the fact that we've barely even begun!" says Mike. "We've gotten to this level by serving only that tiny minority of Internet users who even know what a 'domain name' is and why they need one. We've actually begun to create a market by introducing .ws domains to the masses, with our turnkey, extremely affordable and easy to use packages of domain names, self-service instant websites, and personal email services. We're actually 'targeting' the other 99+% of the Internet community - families, single people, children, seniors, and small businesses - the vast majority of whom are new to domain names and just need something simple and affordable to get them excited. That is literally hundreds of millions of people globally who are prospects for our service."

I started out with this host 2 or three days ago... and I noticed some minor problems, so i started checking up on it and every user of the hosting has the same speed problem.
the website: www.awayfromkeyboard.ws is what i made, the host has easy features for those new to building websites and you have a reasonable amount of templates to chose from, but the control you have is very limited.
I got another website hosted at a much cheaper company and thats much fast and much more control.... this makes me wonder about its future.
