It's week 5 of the new gTLD launches, and choices abound!

This week's four new arrivals will kick off, as always, with a trademark protection period (Sunrise phase) beginning on Christmas eve and lasting 60 days.

This phase will be followed by the seven-day priority registration period (and by "priority" they mean "pricier") starting 26 February 2014, before being opened up for regular registration at standard prices on 5 March 2014.

To see prices or reserve a domain, see the TLD info pages below:

If you've made pre-reservations, you can convert them to pre-registrations from within your account:

Coming up next week are scheduled launches of .tattoo, .sexy, .limo, .domains, .cab, .wed, .menu, .uno, .kiwi and .company.

Since the webmail update, you may encounter errors on the webmail while consulting your messages.

You may encounter issues on the attachments too, as it is limited to 2MB instead of 25MB normally.

Our technical team is doing currently the necessary operations in order to be back to normal as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience this issue may have caused to you.

UPDATE : most of the issues should be fixed now. We are still analyzing and fixing the remaining problems.

It must be said: our version of RoundCube was old. So we're happy to announce that we finally found the time to make a major update to our webmail client:

As a reminder, every domain registered at Gandi comes with up to 5 mailboxes and 1000 forwarding addresses free of charge, which you can manage via POP, IMAP or the beautiful new webmail interface.

You get up to 1 GB of storage with each domain for free, but you can easily purchase upgrades from within your account.

Some useful links about GandiMail:

The registry managing .SX, the official TLD of Sint Maarten (and unofficially the de facto sexy TLD, at least until .sex becomes available) is offering an exceptional discount of 50% for all new .SX registrations from 25 September 2013 to 30 March 2014.

The operations on the SimpleHosting platform are currently stopped.


Our team spotted an issue on the SimpleHosting operations.

They are done correctly, but their status is not updated in term of display ("operation in progress" although it is done).

But, it is blocking waiting operations.


We are currently analyzing the issue.


UPDATE : the problem was located in a logger system which did not allow the operation to be updated. All operations are finished now.

We will be doing maintenance on our webmail during the afternoon and evening of December 17, in order to update the Roundcube webmail version for all email users.


Between 15:00 and 19:00 Pacific time, webmail will not be accessible. Email delivery and email client access will continue normally.


We apologize for the inconvenience, and look forward to bringing you an updated version of our webmail client.

Update 2013-12-17 19:15 PST: The maintenance is complete.

We are happy to announce a drop in prices for .PT domains of $3, effective immediately, on all rate scales.

The .PT TLD now costs $29.00 (at A rates) instead of its earlier price of $32.

.PT, the national ccTLD of Portugal, has been open to registration by residents of any country since 1 May 2012. Registrants are still required to provide an ID number, but it doesn't have to be a Portugese ID. The first major change is that it's no longer necessary to have a commercial or personal name related to the domain name being registered!

Some additional details:

  • If you are a "corporate person" (business, association, etc) registered in the European Economic Community, you will have to provide an intra-community VAT number. If your business is located outside Europe, you will need to provide another fiscal identification number.
  • If you are a Portugese citizen, you will have to provide your Fiscal Code. Otherwise, you'll need to provide your passport number.

Get used to it as it will become frequent in 2014: new extensions are available today!

As always, those 4 new extensions will begin with the trademark protection phase (Sunrise), that will last 60 days.

That phase will be followed by the priority "Landrush" registration phase (which means that the registration prices will be higher), during 7 days (19/02/2014), before the general opening (26/02/2014).

The extensions planned to launch next week are .tattoo, .sexy, .carrers, .photos, .recipes and .shoes.

An incident is currently underway on our Simple Hosting platform (Paris datacenter only).
The reason for the incident is not immediately clear; we are investigating.  Please don't launch any operations on the instance for the moment.
Updates will be posted here as soon as we have more information.

Update Tue Dec 10 21:37:01 CET 2013: This issue has been resolved. Please accept our apologies for the brief period of inavailability.
