Since August 15th, AdamsNames, the registry in chage of .GD, VD, and TC has been performing a large technical migration that will shake up their architecture a bit. This technical migration is not without impact for us.
First of all is the temporary unavailability of .GD and .VG operations. We should be once again connected to the registry in a couple hours.
The second is the temporary suspension of the .TC registration platform: this extension seems to cause difficulties for its registry, which has also raised rates (renewals are now €73 excl.VAT per year under A rates, instead of €40). Registrations of new .TC domains are therefore halted until October (no exact date has yet been given to us). It is still possible to renew .TC domains however.
We will keep you informed via this news as we have more information from the Registry.
.GR domain names are now available for registration by anyone, without any restriction. Creation prices are 12 euros for A rates excl .VAT (see all .gr prices here) though there is a 2-year creation/registration period.
If you would like to register your .GR domain, you may use the following form:
Until October 1st, 2012, the Mexican registry is offering .mx domain creations at 50% off the normal price. This offer is valid for creations for 1 to 5 years and does not concern transfers or renewals.
Under A rates, the extension drops to $24 excl. VAT per year for 1 to 2 years and $21 excl. VAT for 3 or more (see all the .mx prices).
The extension is open to everyone without any restrictions.
An email is currently being sent to people that is actually an attempt by unscrupulous individuals to steal your Gandi login codes and probably your domain names.
We would like to take this moment to remind you of basic security precautions you need to take when you receive an email that asks you to click on a link:
1. Never click on a link in an email 2. Really, don't click on links in emails 3. If you want to click on the link nevertheless, verify that the destination address that displays in your web browser is correct (it will appear green for gandi.net), and don't just look at the beginning of the link, look at the whole thing, as phishing links will often include the real name of the site at the beginning in order to trick you.
Here is an example of the phishing email that is currently being sent out:
