Why .gs?

Target a specific audience with a .gs domain name

The .gs domain ending is the official domain ending for South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, a British overseas territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. That makes .gs a very targeted domain, ideal for professionals and others looking to publish a website specifically for those who live in this territory.

With .gs there are many possibilities

While .gs has existed since 1997, there are still not many .gs domain names registered. Buying a .gs domain name provides near full freedom when choosing your domain name. With .gs, you can also create interesting "domain hacks," especially those targeting an English speaking audience. In addition, "GS" can be used as an acronym with a number of different meanings, notably:

  • General Science
  • Global Solutions
  • Global Sources
  • General Store

A .gs domain name is just a click away

A .gs domain name has the advantage of being simple to quickly and easily register. The .gs domain ending is open for anyone to register on a "first come, first served" basis. All you need is a few clicks to buy your .gs domain name: you get it immediately, and you can renew it for 1 to 5 years.
