Why choose a .gs domain?
Seeking a unique domain for a company name or site title that ends with the letters 'gs'? the .gs country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands can help set your website apart from the rest. The islands in the southern Atlantic Ocean are incredibly remote and almost completely uninhabited — only host to scientists and wildlife. However, .gs has become quite popular among link shortening services.
