The hosting as well and the webpage builder has been updated. But things have always had a constant update at GDI. I wish you could see something called the Leader Boards within the GDi backoffice. Basically if you sign up 5 new people within one week you earn a bonus of $100....10 = $200 and so forth. There are all different bonus levels but let's just keep it at 5 for arguments sake. There are SO many people on the leader board each day and just 3 days or so ago I visited there and a few people had 17-43 sign ups each. I just say this to make a point that its a very successful program to a lot of people. And these aren't newbies. A lot of these names I see have been there for years. So there's your long-term. I mean it's up to the own individuals common sense to diversify his/her earnings into different ventures. It would be dumb to invest all of your money into the GDI, or any program unless this is your full time gig. Here's the point I want to really get across. It's not a business that caters to getting the newest company on a block a website. I have the feeling you think this is catered towards a B2B type aspect. Now of course you can go after potential business owners that need a site but It's really more for every day people. When GDI mentions some of the top companies use their services, its just to ensure people that .ws can be a serious domain too. just because .com is more familiar doesn't necessarily make it better. Regardless, you can choose any extension you want now. You can market you business as 1."hey, I want to find people needing a website" 2." I want to find people wanting to get into a home based business" or 3" I want to find folks who want to get into a home based business online and may also need a website"
Now you can use your site to market your own GDI biz, or you may put whatever you want on there and use it for personal use...or even a combination of both.
I'd like to apologize for the Title of the post I made, but I was upset after I read negative views back to back on the website.ws (gdi) program. I saw one very upbeat and positive GDI rep gets knocked down one by one even after his fair assessment. I came here to give my personal inside view and I hope I shed the negative persona of this program which should be ranked fairly high considering the longevity and overall satisfaction with its members. Anyhow, I said my peace. Thanks for listening.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
