Global Domains International – Business Review
Global Domains International, or GDI, is an international company owned by Michael Starr and Alan Ezeir that offers domain names and web hosting. The company started in November of 1999, and they have an MLM 5 tier structure that allows you as a GDI distributor to make some money getting other people to sign up with their .ws domains.
GDI only registers .ws domains… not .com, .net, .org, or any other domains. Technically the “ws” stands for Western Samoa, but GDI believes it’s more memorable than other domains when you think of the ws ending as “website”. Some additional alternate names for this business are listed with BBB as My.ws, WebSite.ws, and WorldSite.ws.
The cost to get a .ws domain through Global Domains International is ten dollars a month; which includes the name, website, basic web hosting, an affiliate website, 10 Post Office Protocol (POP) email accounts, an email marketing system, a bulk emailer, and a few other services.
When I said you could make “some money” as a GDI distributor, that is because what you make for every person you sign up is one dollar a month for as long as they are paying GDI for their services. To many people, that isn’t much… and outside of GDI’s price for a domain name and hosting not being on the “cheap end” compared to many other well known providers, this seems to be the main issue people trying to build a business have with Global Domains International. Others are concerned with the basic web hosting being fairly limited as well in comparison to other providers.
GDI does have extra cash bonus contests in which you can possibly earn some more money by signing up multiple affiliates. One of the rules for the contests is that you provide a written positive testimonial about GDI.
If you don’t want to personally sell anything, they do offer an ability for you to send GDI your own personal list, and they will email the people on the list about Global Domains International from “you”. You can also buy “verified phone leads” from them for $3 each, as well as purchase GDI business cards.
So bottom line… is GDI a scam? No. They are a reputable company who has been around for over 12 years. However, in my opinion the negatives outweigh the positives when it comes to trying to make a significant income through them. There are simply easier ways to make more money quicker than making $1 a month per signup as a Global Domains International affiliate.
Thanks for reading…
