GDI – Global Domains International Inc Review

If you’ve been on the internet for an extended period of time looking for trading options, eventually you’ll come across someone promoting GDI to you. So this article is to answer some of the basic questions about GDI. Is this business opportunity a scam? Do they have a worthwhile product or service? What is the potential of this opportunity? I will try to answer these questions as objectively as possible.


If you’ve made it to this article, you’re probably already considering whether GDI is a serious business opportunity or a scam. To determine if GDI is a scam, the first question to ask yourself is whether they are marketing a worthwhile product or service or are just another MLM or pyramid designed to take your money without giving you anything but promises of great rewards and riches. The answer is yes, they have a genuine product/service. In this case web hosting.

The described service

They provide a web hosting service. It is true that you can get free web hosting on the net, in fact this very article is an example of a free web host and you can get good results from them, but there are a number of things you sacrifice.

First of all, if you are using a free web host there is always some sort of cost, they normally require you to run free ads on their site. (web1000 is an exception, but you can’t even put banners on it and its editor is painful to use).

While having ads on your website at first may not seem like a problem, consider this, if you want this site to be your main portal and business hub, you may end up advertising your biggest competitor, not a smart move. You do not own your site. You can own the intellectual stuff, but if the free web host changes their rules, goes out of business, or simply updates the way their system works, there’s nothing you can do about it. Even with Blogger you have to share your AdSense income with them 50-50. That is why I recommend that if you really want to have an online business, your main site is one that you own and that means paying for it. Also after I lost 48 blogs overnight because Blogger felt they didn’t all fit their terms of service, you learn: you get what you pay for.

In the case of GDI this means $10 per month. It’s US dollars so if you’re in Australia like me that’s not so great, if you’re trading in euros or pounds that’s great for you. For that, you get a website, 10 pages (plus a comment and guest page, 12 total), 10 email addresses and a domain name, it also includes a domain/site builder, domain and email forwarder. , use your own. web builder, parking service. However, each page can have a large amount of data. The 10 email address means that if you have 10 different businesses, affiliate programs or whatever, you can dedicate an individual email to each one and can, with forwarding, even arrange to have them forwarded to a single box. .

The other big advantage is the ability to choose a domain name. Most of the good .com names are long gone. Also, in the case of many of the other endings like .au, .us, .uk, etc., many companies exist solely to buy the best domain names to sell to someone else at greatly inflated prices. GDI with .ws avoids this pitfall by ensuring that the domain name is not sold as a separate entity, but only with the web host. This stops domain name grabbing in its tracks. .ws is still new and now is the time to get the domain name you want. There is no additional $20 annual fee just for domain name registration.

The Business Opportunity

The fact is that not everyone needs a web host. Let’s examine why one has a website. Typically, one has a website for one of two reasons: BUSINESS or PERSONAL.

In the case of personal websites, many people want their own personal email addresses and have a website for various reasons, from keeping in touch with family with an open letter, to expressing their beliefs or opinions on a world stage, to satisfy your own ego and sense of importance, create photo albums, join a community, etc. Some people will pay $10 a month to have a website. As time goes on, I think this will increase as more and more people get to know the web and want to have their own address/place on the web. With the highly transitive nature of the human population moving more than ever before in the history of the world, one of the best ways for people to keep in touch with friends will be through the network. Consider how many people from the school you know twenty years later. Have you moved from city, state, country? If so, you’ve probably lost contact with them. If you wanted to track them, how would you do it? I know I would do it through the web. This will become easier as more people have personal web pages.

In the case of a business website, most of the businesses have a website to further advertise their business, some also have direct sales on the net, and some are nothing more than internet based businesses, for example, Ebay. . In the case of a website for a company, you would think that what GDI offers is not big enough to meet your needs. Except for a landing page, redirect page, or just the domain name, GDI is intended for the small business Internet user. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is a fact that influences the business opportunity. If GDI wants to grow further, it will need to consider offering reasonable upgrade packages for the bigger players.

For a first time small business wanting their own 6 page website GDI is not a bad option as it also gives them a secondary source of income.

It has the potential to be a good source of income, since each person you bring in receives $1 a month. It’s really not a huge amount, you’d need 10 people just to pay your hosting fee, but the winner here is that you get $1 for every person who submits up to five levels, the power to leverage the work of those below you is what attracts here. That can result in some good returns. You won’t become a millionaire overnight, but you can have a great income stream.

You may be thinking, I was too late and missed the wave of GDI. No, I don’t think so, not at the moment this article is being written. GDI members now number in the tens of thousands, it won’t be until it reaches hundreds of millions that the wave will subsidize. I don’t think the new customers will completely dry up either, because every year more and more tech-savvy students are finishing school, believing that they each need their own modern gadgets, including mobile phones, email, and even their own personal website. For kids who spend $50 more a month just on cell phones, $10 a month for their own website is nothing. I am waiting for the day when you no longer send a resume to a potential employer, but just give them your web address and they can search your life themselves. So I think the potential of GDI is long term yes after the initial wave there will be an eventual slowdown there is no infinite possibility there are 6 billion people on the planet once most of them is a client you have reached the finite limit. Any company, unless it has plans to further develop a service or introduce new products, knows that a market reaches a saturation point where growth slows. It is not so good for an MLM company since your customers are also your business partners. Any MLM that wants to be successful must sell a product that needs replacement over time, i.e. tupperware (where did I leave that lid, oh well, time elsewhere and order another), or offer new services or products to the same descending lines.

There are numerous ways to advertise GDI online. I myself am not a great salesperson. I hate cold calling, I hate knocking on the door, I hate feeling like I’m invading someone’s personal space or appearing pushy. That’s why I love internet advertising. Buyer is in full control, not a pushy seller, doesn’t like the sales pitch, go somewhere else. There are several programs set up to advertise GDI for you, programs like turbo GDI and Hits2U, both of which are profitable.

In short, if you need a web server, GDI is an option, especially around domain names, if you don’t need a web server and don’t know anyone who does, it’s probably not for you.
