    I apologize in advance if this has been covered or is excessively ignorant, but I'm wondering about search engines and new domains. The name I needed was taken in com, net and org, so I added "zone" to the name and registered a .com, but just don't like it that well. So, I got the name in .ws, which looks better to me. I was wondering if those domains are going be indexed by all search engines of if there are problems with that?

    I don't think the domains have much to do with searching listing.

    Actually, if you have a keyword in your domain, then it ranks higher on a couple of the engines, I think...

    Psalzer,

    I checked Altavista and it has ".ws" domains listed in its index.

    I would assume that all search engines support any domain name.
