What does WS mean?

ws
.ws is the Internet country code top-level domain for Samoa. It is administered by SamoaNIC, for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Samoa. The .ws domain is an abbreviation for "Western Samoa", which was the nation's official name in the 1970s when two-letter country codes were standardized. While there are no geographic restrictions on registration of most second-level .ws domains, .ORG.WS, .GOV.WS, and .EDU.WS registration is restricted. Prior to March 14, 2008, .WS domains were not allowed to be transferred from one domain registrar to another. .ws has been marketed as a domain hack, with the .ws purportedly standing for "World Site" or "Web site", providing a "global" internet presence to registrants. .ws coincidentally supports all internationalized domain names. As such, due to its potential popularity, a sliding scale of prices is operated by the registrar depending on the brevity of the desired domain. Domains with four characters or more are reasonably priced whilst three-, two- and single-character domains have their own pricing tiers quickly scaling into thousands of US Dollars.
