The idea of this extension is one that we can really get behind: all sites that generate traffic with a .HIV extension will finance research and assistance in the fight against HIV and AIDS.

The Sunrise of this extension is scheduled for Monday July 21st at 7 am PDT and can only be registered for a period of 3 years during Sunrise.

A .HIV domain during Sunrise will cost you $1850.79 (in grid A pricing).  Once this extension enters general availability, it will be available for $240.93 per year (also grid A pricing).

We will need to reboot a storage unit as an emergency.

Indeed, a bug is at the source of this emergency maintenance.

This maintenance will not impact the data hosted on this storage unit.

The disks will take their I/O back where they stopped.

Thank you not to do any operation on your VM in the meantime.

The hosting operations will be stopped during the maintenance.

Sorry for the inconvenience this emergency maintenance may cause to you.

We will be performing some maintenance on our information system database. This will be taking place between 2:00 PM PDT and 9:00 PM PDT on Wednesday July 23rd.

Essentially, this maintenance will impact administrative functions on Gandi products and services, which may be disrupted periodically for some time during this timeframe.

During these downtimes, it will not be possible to perform any purchase, renewal, management, or administration of domain names, hosting services, SSL certificates, Gandi Mail or Gandi Websites.

The public API will also be unavailable and the generation of zones associated with domains will be affected.

However, sites hosted with Simple Hosting or on VPS virtual machines as well as Gandi's DNS servers will not be affected and will run as normal

Reception and transmission of emails may be temporarily affected but rest assured that no mail will be lost.

For the duration of this maintenance, access to our support will also be limited and periodically unavailable and so we have put in place an emergency email address at

We also encourage you to follow our Twitter account @gandinoc where we will be keeping everyone up to date on the progress of the maintenance.

We apologize for any inconvenience this maintenance may cause and ask that you bear with us while we improve our services.


Update :

The maintenance started at 11.02PM CEST and has been completed at 00.08AM CEST.

Please report any isue you may encounter to our email support.

A maintenance will occur on a Gandi Mail storage unit.

The maintenance window will start at 11PM and end at 00AM on Tuesday 22nd of July 2014 CEST (Paris timezone).

The predictable impact is the unreachability of a few thousands of mailboxes for a few minutes.

There is no predictable loss of messages during the maintenance as those will be queued before delivery.

If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases. We'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment – as soon as your chosen phase begins – for the best chance of success.

After a long Sunrise, five new gTLDs from Donuts are entering the GoLive phase: .capital, .engineering, .exchange, .gripe and .moda.

GoLive will begin on Wednesday 16 July at 9am PDT (16:00 UTC) except for .moda which will begin one hour later.

The list of new extensions follows, accompanied by a link to the corresponding pricing page and the respective prices in Landrush and General Availability/GoLive, all at A rates:

You don't need to wait until GoLive begins to register your domain: we strongly encourage you to pre-register now. We will then submit the order on your behalf at the earliest possible moment, in the order they are received. As always, if the registration is not successful, we will automatically refund your prepaid account (and will refund to your external funding source upon request).

If you want to be absolutely sure to get your desired domain, you can register it during Landrush at a higher price (see below). The Landrush phase ends on Wednesday 16 July at 8:59am PDT (15:59 UTC).


Register a domain under one of these TLDs?:


Vienna is the capital of Austria and has a heck of a history, so it's only right it gets a TLD to call its own.

Beginning at 3am (10am UTC) on Tuesday, 15 July, anyone with something to say about the city of Vienna will be able to register a .wien at the price of $37.96 per year.

For details, see the .wien pricing page.

This Monday is July 14th, which means our Parisian colleagues will be intoxicated with liberty and enthusiasm on the day of their independence. Here in the San Francisco office, we'll be tirelessly toiling on many things, not least of which is the planned GoLive of two new gTLDs.

Publically available registrations of .bar and .rest domains is scheduled to begin on Monday, 14 July at 5am PDT (noon UTC). Here are the prices in Landrush and GoLive at A rates:

  • .bar: $237.80 | $85.43
  • .rest: $170.63 | $42.88

At the time of this writing, there are just two hours left of the Landrush phase. You can already preregister for the GoLive phase right now. We recommend doing so as soon as possible, as we will be submitting the orders to the Registry at the moment GoLive begins, in the order they're received.
