Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Global Domains International, aka www.freedom.ws is an affiliate of www.website.ws

Of course they don't tell you this.

Theirs is a multi-level marketing scam. Their independent contractors post heavily on Craigslist and Backpage and promote a great business opportunity of marketing domains ending with an ws. to individuals and businesses. Bundled in with this is the alleged product of easily set up websites for people with little or no computer experience. Great, right? If you missed your name of choice or your personal name on a .com basis you could buy it with a ws. suffix and have a website set up tonight.

But, in fact, GDI has no interest in marketing this product they are exclusively and only set up to sell multi-level marketing "opportunities".

I signed up to sell the domains and website service on a 7 day free trial. I tried for days to get an affiliate link to the website/domain name product. I was given the run around and finally told that there was no such affililate link. GDI had no interest in selling the actual end -product but only wanted to sucker in more and more and more multi-level marketing tiers. This is a pyramid scheme which benefits them and them alone.

In other words, there is no end product you are ever selling (despite the fact that it's a good one) the only thing you can ever sell is the opportunity to make money. But you can't actually ever market the end product.

I tried to cancel on the 6th day of the alleged free trial only to be told that I could only cancel Mon-Fri. As I had signed up on a Sunday that meant that I only had 5 days in which to cancel. I canceled on the 8 th day and not only got the run around about receiving my money back but they loaded my card up with
several other mandatory charges which they refused to take off.

They're slick and unconscionable.

Twisted_Newbies

AUTHOR: Twisted_Newbies - ()

OMG. People are so dang twisted.

The problem is not GDI.

 

The real problem are the lower information voter. Just like voting. Vote for the wrong reason and never ask the right questions. Of course the lower education crowd never ask the right question cause they have no idea what to ask, must less have read the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

 

So, you signed up and You didn't log into the members area.

Oh, so you say you did log into the members area and all you done was starred at page and like, what the heck is this. Now what..... Poof, you close out.

Well, their you go. That explains it. So you see, that had nothing to do with GDI cause you didn't go down the line and click the buttons to learn your way around and find the content your looking for.

Oh. Right. You didn't bother to try and learn how to build a website. Well, guess that was GDI fault for not holding your hand like a 1st grader.

I'm assuming you are a grown adult, but then again. You could of been an over age teenager.

However, it could be that you have over consumed too much dihydrogen monoxide sodium flouride where cities dump toxic alumnium by products into the city drinking water that lowers the IQ. That's a fact. Research it.

 

Oh wait. Forget that. You never bothered to read how to get started and learn how the business works with GDI.

Let's get the facts straight. It you and those alike that is very problem. It's called lack of feeding your strawman with knowledge by reading to gain wisdom.

I tend to believe this is a SCAM for the following reason: The monthly unconditional charge.

AUTHOR: MrLogical - (United States of America)

I find it curious they would charge people $10/month if people make money using their system. Why not just withhold $20/month (or more) from the money they supposedly pay out? And if no money is forthcoming, then only the business looses, while the members never have anything to loose. If they did this and if this were truly a legitimate business, they would rake in the doe, as many otherwise skeptical people would join when they have nothing to loose and everything to gain.

I hope they sue you...

AUTHOR: Sconcedad - (United States of America)

It is people like this that give our industry a bad name.


GDI is a 100% legal and legit MLM company.   If they were not legit, they would have been shut down by the government years ago.  They are the "only" MLM company I know of that is allowed to accept "Paypal" as Paypal has such strict guidelines.


Everything is clearly spelled out before a person ever joins this company.  This guy clearly did not read anything.  He expected them to stay open on a Sunday so that he could cancel his 7 day free membership.  Then, he screams "SCAM" when they close on the weekends like most all businesses do.


Basically, this guy is simply a liar.  He never got any run around and he never got any charges loaded up on his card that he did not ask for.


He should be sued for making these false statements.  People like this should have to pass an IQ test before they are even allowed to participate in an online business.  Then, there would be less problems in the industry.


This guy claims that he tried for days to get an affiliate link.  What a joke!  When you sign up, your username is created instantly and your link is created instantly.  Your capture page is created instantly.


He should be ashamed of his post.  It has "stupid" written all over it.

Dude...crappy product is the bottom line

AUTHOR: FlyingSock - (USA)

     I'm in about the same boat right now. I'm actually listening to the horrifying waiting music to cancel my account with GDI before my trial period is up (signed up yesterday). Here's the thing: I do see the allure and the value of an MLM system, and by the way, it functions EXACTLY the same way that a pyramid scheme does, only there's also a product. Look it up. Pyramid Scheme = MLM with no product.
     Here's the bottom line. It's not even about getting a product cheaper, or not wanting to sell or market or whatever. I understand markup and I'm not opposed to it. I've even heard it said that higher priced products are easier to sell. However, GDI has one of the crappiest products I've ever seen. Their servers don't handle any kind of "advanced" features (really they should be standard in this day and age). For example, one of the easiest ways to build a website is with wordpress. IMPOSSIBLE TO DO ON GDI SERVERS. They don't support the databases necessary. There's simply no way to do it. Their business is so focused on the marketing/MLM side of things that, while their customer support is decent, there service not only costs more but is far inferior to comparable products.
     Here's how they get you: In order to be an affiliate in their MLM structure, you have to subscribe to their services. Ergo, you are now part of the pyramid, paying ten dollars a month, five of which goes to those higher than you on the pyramid. IF YOU'RE PUTTING MONEY INTO IT, IT IS A PYRAMID SCHEME. The only way an MLM is not a pyramid scheme is if you are directly selling a product and get a split of commissions. Because you, as an affiliate, are not contributing to the company's money. But if you contribute, then sell others on the marketing side of the business, it's a freakin' pyramid.
     After reading in a previous post that GDI doesn't allow you to directly sell the product, AND that you have to PAY GDI TO MARKET THE MARKETING PROGRAM, it is pretty clear that this is nothing more than a legally-loopholed PYRAMID SCHEME. Anybody who believes otherwise is probably making money from the scheme and is in denial about their source of income. Get over it.

Mark-up

AUTHOR: Grizz - (U.S.A.)

Nobody on here seems to grasp the fundamental truth of all MLM opportunities. In order to pay out bonuses to IBOs or Affiliates, the company must have a tangible product. They incur an expense for that product, so then tack on extra cost so they can make a profit. THEN, they tack on a little more expense so they can compensate their IBOs or Affiliates that market their product. This is why every MLM business out there cannot sell their product or service competitively. You wont find anything in Avon, Amway, Pampered Chef or one of the thousands of health/nutrition opportunities that sells a product that is more affordable than one at a major retail competitor (WalMart etc). This is because they must have a mark-up so they can compensate their members. There are two honest ways to look at this.
1. Why spend more money when I can get a comparable product cheaper at a local retailer?
2. Why not pay a little more for a product I use anyway and have the opportunity to have that product pay me back if I'm willing to convince others to shop the way I do?

If you hate talking/selling to people, go to walmart and pay bottom price. If you dont mind selling and want to capitalize on duplication, niche products or passive income, then find a good, reputable MLM business opportunity that is ethical and financially sound.

Its not rocket-science folks and we shouldn't be so defensive when someone challenges our ideas. Most of the people who try and fail at these cant simply admit that really didnt try to sell to the amount of people that the system required to make money. As for this "pyramid scheme" term that is thrown around, take a look at where you work. Corporate america and our politics are all a pyramid scheme. One at the top, many at the bottom. Get used to it.

Borderline Pyramid

AUTHOR: Exgdiemployee - (U.S.A.)

Hello,

I have some experience with web design, and had been previously employed at the corporate office of this company. They are a legit company with a service (Domain registration and web hosting).

There is one major flaw with this company. Their product simply doesn't compete.

GDI offers:
-Domain Registration
-10 Email accounts (Webmail service and the ability to set them up for POP, each email account is allotted 1GB for storing emails).
-100MB Disk storage for the website
-10GB Of bandwidth per month for the website
-Customer Support (Email and Phone M-F 8AM-5PM)
-Ability to participate in their affiliate program
-Access to GDI's sitebuilder application
-And Support for the following: HTML, PHP 4.4.7

(I may have forgot a feature or two but above are the main features)

All for $10 per month ($120 a year).

First off why would they allot 1GB for each email account (Which for the most part only contain text/html coding) and only give 100MB for the website. If anything these should be reversed as the webpage will contain the largest files (images, videos, sounds, and other media which they do support.)

I'll use a service from another company that is in the same price range to compare.

xxxxxxxxxx.com Features
- Unlimited Email Accounts and Storage
- Unlimited Disk Storage for your website.
- Unlimited Bandwidth for your website.
- 24 hour customer support.
- Access to a multitude of different sitebuilder applications.
- PHP, HTML, JAVASCRIPT, CGI BIN, Unlimited MySQL databases.
- Premium Spam Filters
- E-Commerce Solutions (Shopping Carts, etc)
- Frontpage extensions.
All for $12 a month ($144 a year), you can even take off features to shave off a few dollars if need be.

This alone shows how GDI is unable or unwilling to compete. They rely on individuals who don't know much about web design, and web hosting. I believe this is totally unacceptable, and immoral. Just because they dont know about web design and hosting, doesn't mean you should be able to charge them full price for a skimpy product.

I believe that offering a product/service that can't compete or that is far below standards is just as bad as not offering a product at all. (Their main defensive argument against "Pyramid Scheme" accusations is that they offer a product/service). Especially when the customer can go to a different website and pay $20 more a year to get a service with NONE of the limitations that GDI has in place.

The immediate response from the company would be that their affiliate program, and income opportunity is worth the $10 per month alone. But this is also incorrect, as most companies in web hosting have similar affiliate programs.

This company cannot compete. MANY employees I had known had suggested stepping up to offer more features, but the owners and operators either refuse to, or for some reason are unable to do this.

There are a number of other issues i stumbled upon in my experiences with this company but i have omitted them because i cannot back them up with evidence or references. This is irrelevant though, in order to offer a product it must be able to compete. I believe if this company doesn't modernize soon that they will go under.

Use good judgement, get the facts

AUTHOR: Jhereg - (U.S.A.)

Hi everyone,

Firstly, I am not an employee/associate of GDI, nor am I affiliated with said company.

Some quotes from employee/associate rebuttals posted here:

"We are selling an opportunity to maximize your time. All we want people to do is market and promote our services from the comfort of their own home by recruiting people to do the same."

"It uses a very unsophisticated form of 5 layer deep commission where by you take 10% of each 10 for 5 layers. The company then takes $5 from every $10"

The definition of a pyramid scheme, according to Wikipedia: "A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves the exchange of money primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, often [often, not ALWAYS] without any product or service being delivered."

Now, if you are considering working with/for this company, you may want to head over to (((Redacted)))which is the GDI world forum. You can read about some of the problems that GDI employees/associates encounter, and use your best judgment to decide if this is the type of venture that best suits your needs.

Good luck.

A little insiders truth...

AUTHOR: Commonguy - (U.S.A.)

I am a legit ex-employee of GDI. For a little proof without giving away to much info for you "affiliates" and " Current Employees" of GDI. Ask Mike, Alan or Lainie what FreedomStarr or TrafficBoost is/was. Well of course now people are saying this company is ethical so did they sell it? When you go to http://www.website.ws/contact.dhtml look at that picture. I am in it. Some of those people were not employees, but that is besides the fact. It's a glowing pretty picture, huh? Looks like alot of people with the company standing in front of the large company headquarters there by the airport in Carlsbad, I did hear that they had to leave that building because they could not pay the rent, but that is only rumor. I only know for a fact they are not in that building anymore.

Did anyone notice that the Inc. magazine list is more than 6 years old? And there are creative ways to show numbers there also.

GDI will do anything possible not to give money back. They will hold it for as long as possible. Even to the point of holding out on giving the resellers their commissions due until they have to. Mike and Alan are greedy little dudes. Alex did practilly clean him out after the divorce however. (If I have not convinced anyone by now I really know what I am talking about just email me and I will send you some other insider facts.) Can someone make $13,000.00 a month there. Possibly. Check out what they charge for 3 and 4 letter domain names. But I think the only ones making this kind of money is Mike and Alan and possibly a few people who have been there since it's inception.

GDI, I will admit here and now, is not a scam and is a legit MLM program. Just DO NOT go into it thinking you will make alot of money. Even you current affiliates have to admit you have to put in about full time hours to keep your head above water and you have no guarantees that will even earn you money. The market may not be saturated yet but it sure is getting moist. There may be 'billions of businesses and people across the world to market to' but how many people have computers or the means to pay for, lets face it, GDI's pricey plans?

To some up, there is some legitamacy to the first and other persons posts, as well as some to the affiliates followups, some things they all said are complete untruth's. Just really do your homework before you 'work' for this company in any form or before you purchase any of their products. By the way they have been using the 'work from home' hook for years!

Happy Affiliate here!

AUTHOR: Lovonne86 - (U.S.A.)

I must say all of these bad reports I am reading about GDI are very wrong! I have been with GDI for some time now and I am making money with it. It takes patience and dedication and well if you don't have that don't get mad and start knocking the company! And as for not being able to cancel... That is not true I sometimes think people make this stuff up. I have a personal friend of mine who had to cancel his account because of some issues he had. When he called and told me he was going to cancel he was out of my downline a few hours later. Global Domains is not a scam!! It is not illegal either. I would think if it was you wouldn't see their websites all over the web where the law can spot it too!! This company gives us a chance to make a living people! Be greatful!

Very simple to set up the website, have not seen any false promises, seem very transparent.

AUTHOR: Cwoiun - (U.S.A.)

For your advanced warning, I am not connected to GDI in any way further than the original poster and was not in any way asked or compensated for writing this review. I did it on my own volition after seeing the review and its remarks. I also don't stand to benefit, as it is unlikely that the same person who reads this will later end up joining my team.

GDI's primary website (literally website.ws) sells only their web domain services. In fact, the name alone (Global Domains International) pretty much says it all: their main business is selling domain names (.com, .ws, etc). Their main selling point is their exclusive ownership of the .ws (.website) which allows people to get very personalized domain names for their websites.

Their marketing some may take issue with, but it is intelligent. Essentially, give people the incentive and let people do the promoting with you. It is intelligent. That does not make it a scam. It is much like Avon, Amway, or another similar company. If I owned the company, I would do the same.

A typical scam involves fooling people into giving you money without any opportunity to make any. GDI certainly does not fit into that category. In addition, almost every aspect of their businesses is introduced upfront in their video presentation (ie, my example at (((Redacted)))). That includes extremely detailed and specific explanations of their compensation policy. Their website is even more fair than, for example, Avon, which can, at times, let Representatives do the promotions, then let customers simply order products at their main website online without the representatives getting a cent.

The personal issues described by the initial poster are very questionable: (I signed up to sell the domains and website service on a 7 day free trial. I tried for days to get an affiliate link to the website/domain name product. I was given the run around and finally told that there was no such affililate link.)

GDI almost immediately sent me tons of information on how to activate and start my website. First, the confirmation page (which explicitly says STEP #1: PRINT THIS PAGE - and under step three, Set up your domain: Login to the member's area and choose your domain setting. Instructions are then given again by email, and then within the member site (all you have to do is log on to their member site and click the Build your Website link and/or My replicated links on the first page, which it doesn't look like the initial poster attempted to do). In fact, the instructions were dumbed down and over-simplified. I am not sure how anyone could have had trouble setting up the easiest website design system I have ever used (FYI, I usually make my websites from scratch, but for this purpose I tried out their system).

The next statement, GDI had no interest in selling the actual end -product but only wanted to sucker in more and more and more multi-level marketing tiers. This is a pyramid scheme which benefits them and them alone. The initial poster mentioned their specific issues setting up their website, but obviously never even tried to use it. I remain highly skeptical of the original poster's ability to follow the simple training readily accessible in the member's section, through the member's forum, or through the upline. The concept that the company would not want you to sell their product is rather questionable.

Another issue to address is the statement that Their independent contractors post heavily on Craigslist and Backpage and promote a great business opportunity of marketing domains ending with an ws. to individuals and businesses. These independent contractors are really people who have signed up to promote GDI (in other words, people like the independent poster, you and I). This is one way these people chose to promote their business. However, simply clicking on to the member's forum, the original poster could clearly see that there are tons of offline methods people regularly use. I suspect those who put actual offline effort into it are more successful. And GDI has a strict non-spam policy.

I haven't cancelled my membership, so I unfortunately can't speak to the issues he had at cancellation. The only thing I could mention is that it simply seems that he was planning to cancel from the beginning.

I am not saying that MLM is for everyone. To be honest, I don't think most people have the drive to own a business, which is not easy. However, to call it a scam goes too far. They offer a great product (websites) and an intelligent system. I personally consider them the first legitimate MLM system I have found online particularly with the long-term instead of one-time system. Also I admire their honesty - they are upfront that it is free for 7 days, and tell you about all costs (which are minor) upfront. That's something you really can't say about most companies. They are even transparent about what they make.

The GDI websites are easy to build and the tech service is very good

AUTHOR: D.yale - (U.S.A.)

I have tried building websites with two other companies and have been unhappy. I have looked at at least 20 other sites and what they have to offer. For me
GDI not only has better templates for you to start with but the site builder for me has been much easier to use than the one on Yahoo that I've been trying to work with.

I lauched my first site with them yesterday and I'm starting on a second. Considering I've never done this before I think they have a very good product.

I know that MLM is not for everyone and I have steered away from it myself. But, based on my personal experience with them I have absolutely no trouble recommending their product or the MLM. I see the sales stats coming in every day from people all around the world and the company has just enlarge their payouts as well. You may not like MLM's but the product is REAL and VERY GOOD.

GDI Is completely Leget, you just don't know affiliate marketing

AUTHOR: Shudogg - (U.S.A.)

GDI is a webhosting company, just like 1and1, godaddy, and all the others. You can host your own personal website with them if you like. I admit their website builder is rather cheap, but it isn't exactly worse than the ones provided by other hosting companies. So you can host your own site if you want.

They amazing thing about GDI is their affiliate program. Every 5 people you refer in within one week, you get a $100 bonus. What other affiliate program offers this kind of bonus? None that I am aware of. You also get paid $1 for everyone under you, for the life of their account. So if they are in for 1 month, or 1 year, you get paid a dollar a month every month the whole time they stay with GDI. You have 4k people under you, you get $4k a month in commissions, plus any bonuses you may have earned.

GDI doesn't give you traffic, or tell you how to market and get traffic. They just pay you for the work you do, which is bringing people in. It is up to you, as an affiliate, to get your own traffic! This is where so many people fall short and think it is a rip off. They don't know affilaite marketing so they can't get anyone to sign up. Then they blame the system because they can't get anybody.

Go and sign up with any other affiliate program, Copeac, Neverblue, Azoogle, Ebay Partner Network, and you will see the same results. No money because you don't know how to send traffic.

Anyone who claims it is a rip off is just ignorant to the fact that they have to drive traffic. That is marketing, no traffic = no money. No program is going to give you free traffic, then pay you on top of that. They might as well just send out free money.

I make decent money with GDI every month. I have paypal proof, confirmations, everything to prove that GDI DOES PAY YOU! I get paid commissions for people under me, as well as the weekly bonuses I have earned. Just because YOU didn't make money with it doesn't automatically make it a scam.

It is an Affiliate program, not a do nothing and get paid program. How do some people, with zero marketing experience or computer experience expect to instantly make tons of money without getting traffic to their site? It is just ignorant and absurd to blame the company for something you can't do. Its like me blaming the NBA I can't play basketball. It is my fault for not taking the time to learn and practice.

It can be done with no marketing and computer skills, but people are just to close minded to take the time to learn something new. They just want the money handed to them.

This is not a pyramid scheme. People who claim it is have no knowledge on the terminology. A pyramid scheme works like this. The person on the top gets paid, the people below don't and do all the work. It builds a stack under the person who set it up. The person on the top gets paid the most.

GDI is a MLM program. This means Multi Level Marketing. You get paid for 5 levels below you. The hosting is $10 a month, so when you get 5 levels deep, $5 for every account is paid to affilaites ($1 each for 5 people), The other $5 goes to GDI for profits. Everyone gets paid the same, $1 a month.

I have proof you get paid. Pyramid schemes are illegal in the US, so if it was a Pyramid they wouldn't be allowed to operate beings they are based out of CA I believe.

Stop blaming the system for your own downfalls. Cell phone companies, and tons of other companies do so many more things and automatic charges but we don't blame them to be illegal.

Get Informed

AUTHOR: Peeron - (Canada)

I signed up with GDI a week ago. I have not started marketing their product yet since it is holidays, but this poster is grossly misinformed. There is a product outside of the marketing opportunity. They sell domain name registration. All of this is clearly outlined on their sales page. It is a very clean and clear presentation I don't know how anyone could misinterpret it. As for the billing practices I dont' know, I did not encounter any problems. It is MLM but you are actually marketing a product besides the income opportunity. You can buy a domain name and not participate in the MLM opportunity. Maybe you should look up the definition of scam, because this is not one.

For those calling it a pyramid scheme, that term is thrown around inaccurately around here, as well as scam.com. The truth is that it is a knee jerk reaction for some very bitter people to just parrot, "it's a scam". GDI is completely legit, in fact I registered a domain name with them and have a site up and running on it (no I will not give the ripoffreport.com spammers the URL). I'm sorry that you had a bad experience, but I have seen nothing illegitimate or unethical in how GDI does business.

As far as the poster talking about godaddy, they are a hosting company. Yes you can register domain names as well, but I have cancelled the site I had with them due to their billing practices and rude customer service reps, so go figure. As far as I know, GDI does not provide general hosting services, although you DO get an affiliate website which IS hosted for you, and it is ready immediately.

To recap, it is not a scam. You may or may not get rich, but that's besides the point. The point is that the poster that originated this thread is way off.

Research and learn this is a real business... not a scam. I work for them and make good money!

AUTHOR: Saved By Grace - (U.S.A.)

Some people look at GDI as 'all they want is your money!' not true. I look at it like I can use my spare website as a marketing technique (click bank, spiderweb marketing, and other affiliate programs) GDI is a type of affliate program, the incentives are great! residual (business technique from MLM WHICH ARE LEGAL!!) AND internet marketing. How genius is that?

www.globaldomainsinternationalscam.com

Big companys do purchase .ws websites. (yahoo, bank of america) Check it for yourself. The big men want to have all rights to their name so they won't lose business or get competition. EXAMPLE: yahoo.com VS yahoo.ws or yahoo.com = yahoo.ws. Get the picture?

Some people are just to closed minded, simple, or don't have the business minded brain capable of creativity and productivity. Plus, they give up to soon. If you had a website... how can you use it to make you money? It is possible. People do it everyday. so many people want to work from home but just dont' know how. I can show them because I'm doing it. Stop looking at the glass as half empty. Better jump on this wagon before you miss it and its too late. Example: avon, shaklee, and the many more. If you can afford $10.00 monthly as an investment for yourself and family, you will probably never be able to become financially independent (sorry to say).

When you research, look for the Good and the bad... not just the bad because someone elses bad experiences does not necessarily pertain to you. I'm living proof of it.

AUTHOR: Ms_86 - (U.S.A.)

I was "invited" to this company after I replied to one of their many ads on Barefoot (they have tons on Craigslist too) for "a customer service rep to reply to company emails from home. Someone replied to my email telling me to call a long distance number to "attend" a 15-30 minute conference call. So I did. I wanted to see what this company was all about! Turns out it had absolute nothing (0%) to do with replying to company emails. (Would YOU pay $10/mo. to reply to someone else's emails??)

After about 10 minutes of straight hot air being blown up my a$$, I got tired of listening. Plus they were wasting my daytime minutes. Any of you other "employees" are more than welcome to rebut what I'm about to say, but it came straight from someone who works for YOUR COMPANY.


Bottom line: you have to purchase and MAINTAIN a website with them and pay $10 a month for it to be an "employee". Why would I want to do that when I never wanted to buy a freaking domain in the first place? I just want an effing job! And I'm not all about spending money (esp. every month) just to "work" for someone. I live in the Atlanta area and I see (and have been lured into) these kinds of schemes before. It's nothing more than a pyramid scheme. You aren't selling anything but the hopes of making "thousands a month" to the next Joe Dumb.

$13,000 a month or $130 a month (quite frankly, I think the $13000/mo is pure bs). Either way, this "company" was a complete waste of my time. And daytime minutes.

Global Domains is a legitamit opportunity to work from your home. It is MLM but it is legit. Its not for everyone, and by saying that I'm not trying to put anyone down. Alot of people automatically asume that MLM businesses are scams, which most of them promise you will make all this money, but then require hundreds of dollars to get started. We are not charging you anything to get started or selling a get rich quick scheme.

Alot of people do not grasp the concept of what we are trying to accomplish. We are selling an opportunity to maximize your time. All we want people to do is market and promote our services from the comfort of their own home by recruiting people to do the same. In order to do that you need the web services that GDI provides. There is a $10 monthly reaccurring charge that gives you access to your own personal websites that vital in marketing GDI. The $10 dollars also gives you your own personal domain for which you can promote and advertise whatever you want. That $10 that you pay also generates the money that everyone makes through GDI.

Like I said this is not going to be for everyone. I had a background in insurance marketing and picked up on the concept right away. My first week I did really well and I am still currently building an income for life. I tell people that in 7 days of trying out GDI if you don't see yourself making more than $10 in your first week then this is probaly not for you, which is fine. But to bash a company because you didn't do well is just ignorant, because YOU couldn't grasp the concept. It is absurd to sit there and tell people that they are going to be robbed if they give their credit card number. That is just a flat out lie.

The great thing about GDI is that it is international not just restricted to th U.S.. We have only penatrated about 1% of the market which only breeds opportunity for the people that are affiliated with GDI. There are billions of people that we can reach out to thanks to the internet, and I'm sure for everyone person that understands there's going to be 100 that believe its a scam. We're not just making money and building a residule income for ourselfs, we are creating opportunities for people to maximize the time they have at home to make extra money in these horrible economic times.

GDI is a Legit Business

AUTHOR: Aliyyah - (Ireland)

I would like to comment as i am an Independent Affiliate Of GDI for over 2 years n ow, and everything the person said about GDI being a scam is so untrue, they are a business with huge membership and huge growth, just because you didnt understand the business doesnt give you the right to slam it....GDI IS NOT A SCAM

Firstly you are selling Domain + Hosting + website set up, for any business or personal website you wish to have for $10 monthly.

secondly, you mentioned that QUOTE 'people making $13,000 ' ' yeah right', UNQUOTE, well, you know what you can make $13,000 , if you SELL 13,000 Domain +Hosting packages!

Go Figure........that is very true!

And with regard to MLM, who every said MLM businesses were scams?
There are so many businesses using MLM system of selling out there , what do you call businesses using Franchaise system? Sales Reps ,? that is all MLM marketing, using the power of leverage to increase sales............MULTI LEVEL MARKETING..........and its not illegal....

my last word,

GDI is a Domain and Hosting company who have a very good and usuable product, and they offer you a business opportunity to enable you to earn commission to refer people to buy their product......

do you get commission when you refer people to your favourite restaurant? or by telling your friends were they can buy a product cheaper?

Tresa...I believe you are misinformed about general domain registration

AUTHOR: Corey - (U.S.A.)

With a registrar like GoDaddy, you pay your fee for ONE YEAR. Not ONE MONTH. What Tracy from New Mexico meant was that Godaddy is $5 to register a .ws domain for an ENTIRE YEAR. Not per month.

GDI charges fees that go way beyond what is standard for general domain registration. GoDaddy charges around $8 a month for premium hosting. Basic hosting without ads is about $5 a month. So Tracy was explaining that one-time fee for an annual registration and less than $10 a month for hosting on GoDaddy is a better bargain than GDI.

GoDaddy also offers completely FREE hosting, although your website will have ads from Godaddy's partners and Google at the top. But if you are just looking for a personal domain without bells 7 whistles, I see no reason to spend your money with GDI.

The only situation I can think of is that if you have a very common name like Doug Ellis or John Smith. Chances are that all other domain extensions with those types of names are already taken. You may then want to try a .ws domain, though that may be taken already as well.

Overall, I don't see much incentive in doping a domain through GDI. Just not cost-effective.

Successful Happy GDI Affiliate Here

AUTHOR: D Marie - (U.S.A.)

I have been successfully promoting Global Domains International for over 2 years now, and I have to say it has been the best network-marketing company I have ever promoted, by far.

The reason it has been so successful for me are the free tools like landing pages and video sites GDI makes available for thier members. Without the abilility of the new GDI members to input their user name code into one of GDI's promotional video sites instantly, my downline would not be in 180 countries now.

The websites GDI offers are viable and many of my members only use the websites. We chose not to use the GDI website builder because I like to make my sites look gorgeous and very unique so I used a different builder to do this. If I showed you what the GDI website product could really look like they would probably remove my links, so I will just tell you... my GDI sites all end in .ws and one globaldomainsint which you can find in the top 5 on Google and AOL and MSN and my other one is makemoneyhome which you can find at the top of MSN.

I have to tell you. I am not rich, but GDI has been providing over 1/2 of my income for the past 2 years and they are never late with a check.

They do what they say they will do. I have not known any other business opportunity that gives you back so much for so little (the $10 a month they charge) and this is a breath of fresh air, especially in this day and age.

Don't rely solely on the opinions of those who don't know what they're talking about.

AUTHOR: Makeitright - (U.S.A.)

The original report in this thread isn't accurate at all. GDI does everything they say they will. They have a real product which has been explained well by others in this thread.

I just want to say that MLM is good business for everyone. GDI could spend millions of dollars advertising on TV (and they probably do, I don't know) and elsewhere, or they could simply compensate anyone who'll do a little advertising for them. Many big name companies utilize this strategy because it's cost effective and easier to do, not to mention the fact that it provides a nice income for anyone who is willing to work for it. People have a bad impression of MLM and therefore, are quick to place a complaint when, most likely, they couldn't follow the simple registration steps and got lost along the way.

Way too many people hop from one opportunity to the next just looking for a quick buck. Those people also just want something to complain about. I wonder how many reports on this site are not based on reality.

GDI is not a scam. It is a legit business with a real product. It simply allows us to benefit from people buying the product from us. Get your facts straight so you don't embarrass yourself. I hate to see bashing that is undeserved.

Happy Independent Affiliate Here

AUTHOR: Cdavidson - (U.S.A.)

I find this report to be extremely surprising and wrong on so many levels

One- The title of the report calls Global Domains International a Scam which it is not. It is a very real company just out of San Diego California that was listed in 2002 on the Inc 500 website. I looked it up and researched the company before deciding to market the websites.

Two- His report states that Global Domains International does not tell you that www.freedom.ws is an affiliate but when you go to www.freedom.ws you will see Global Domains International at the top of the page. If you go to www.website.ws you will see Global Domains International in several places on the site including at the bottom of the first page and if you click on the .ws story it has an article about how they founded Global Domains Internation. So, I don't understand this statement at all.

Three- He calls Multi-Level-Marketing a Scam when in fact it is not. The ftc.gov website says this about MLM's Some people confuse pyramid and Ponzi schemes with legitimate multilevel marketing. Multilevel marketing programs are known as MLM's,(4) and unlike pyramid or Ponzi schemes, MLM's have a real product to sell. More importantly, MLM's actually sell their product to members of the general public, without requiring these consumers to pay anything extra or to join the MLM system. MLM's may pay commissions to a long string of distributors, but these commissions are paid for real retail sales, not for new recruits.

Global Domains International sells domain hosting packages to the general public for $10.00 per month. They pay commissions based on sales of these hosting packages. There is no fee or anything to join in order to make those commissions and no one that purchases the hosting package is required to then sell the packages themselves, that is simply an option for hosting package customers if they choose to do that.

Four- The company cannot be blamed for those independent contractors that abuse the rules of the sites he listed in his report. As a matter of fact, I have seen Global Domains International permanently suspend the accounts of any affiliate that breaks the rules and does what he states in his report.

Five- His report states that they are only set up to sell MLM opportunities and that they don't have an affiliate link for the website/domain name product. That is completely untrue. I have the affiliate link for the hosting package and use it to market to businesses that need websites. The company provides all the links to the affiliates, they cannot control what link the affiliates choose to send people to.

Six- He contradicts himself in this report. How can there be no real product and at the same time it be a good one. The product is very real and very good. I have sold several domain packages already. I use my site to post family news and photos, to link to sites I like, and for my husband to blog. One of the people I have sold a package to, uses her site for her business. My neice is buying a package to put up her giftbasket business on. If there were no real product, how would we be doing this?

Seven- I did have one person cancel within their seven day free trial, (not because they didn't want the site...but because they realized their credit card was already maxed out). She called the phone number and cancelled with no problems at all. No charges were placed on her card at all, let alone extra ones. No one I have sold a domain package to has complained about any extra charges either.

Eight and Last- I have enjoyed the use of my website and have had no complaints from those I have sold it to. I am sorry that his experience was bad for some reason, but that has not been my experience of that of the majority that I have come in contact with.

Happy GDI Affiliate Here

AUTHOR: Opendomain - (U.S.A.)

I have been a GDI affiliate for quite some time now(just shy of a year) and have had no problems. I have opened 2 accounts one in my name and one in my wife's name, I canceled the one in my wife's name and had no problem doing so. Neither of my accounts has ever been charged any "additional mandatory" charges beyond the $10 a month.

Perhaps the product was not explained to the consumer. GDI does offer an MLM opportunity, but beynd that it also offers websites ending with .ws(as mine does opendomain.ws).

Why? Simple lets say you have a company. ABCInc. and want a website with your name in it and abcinc.com is already taken well you can now purchase www.abcinc.ws as your website. you can also purchase .info, .biz, etc. This is the PRODUCT of GDI... the .ws domain name.

As for the MLM opportunity, it is genuinely real as I've been paid and have a great down line and up line.

ALSO,
freedom.ws has listed all over their site that they are GDI related and affiliated.

I would be more than happy to discuss any further details with anyone interested.

Wow that is so interesting that you had that experience with the GDI system, I have found them to do everything that they say they will.

I have a website up and running on the WS server have had multiple sign ups and as much support as I could want from my up line

Yes you are right the system is a MLM (multi Level marketing system)

It uses a very unsophisticated form of 5 layer deep commission where by you take 10% of each 10 for 5 layers. The company then takes $5 from every $10 not rocket science just good business they stay in business. I make my money.

I had a friend sign up and he again had the opposite experience to yourself when he did decided to leave the company it took but one phone call, no questions asked or why do you want to leave or anything, just no it is not going to work for me and he was no longer a member.

Like I say I am in contact with members of my upline. I have always know this was not a get rich quick scheme, Ken one of my team 2 layers up from me has been at this 2 years he now takes home a tide $1200us per month passive income, a member in his upline 5 above me take $13000us per month. He has been at this approx 3 years.

I am sorry that you feel ripped of or that you did not get what you were promised.

Thank you for sharing your experience here as I myself often look at this site before putting my credit card anywhere unknown

If anyone would like any more information on this, I am a very big advocate of passive income and MLM's
