We probably don't need to tell you that we feel the one place chock-full of raw potential, new thoughts, and continuous invention is the online world, and .online aims to create a space on the web for those looking to set up their presence in this exciting space. That goes for you whether you are a high-powered financier, an awkward adolescent, a huge multi-national corporation, or a tiny country school, from creators to searchers to educators and everyone else.
Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. 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.
Domains in the .online extension will be available in Sunrise for $216.19, in Landrush for XXX, and in GoLive for $51.67, all for a one-year registration at A rates.
The .COM registry is having a great discount in preparation for the summer, which lets us offer you domain in this extension at a very low price of$5 / €5 / £3.50 excl. VAT for the first year (in all price rates).
This promo is good for all 1-year creations until June 30th, 2015 at midnight CEST (3:00pm PST) so don't wait!
Currently in the Sunrise phase, this is one of the most anticipated top-level domains at Gandi, and it's a handy little gTLD: .site. it's all about location. Not only does a business need a location IRL, but now more than ever it's important that people can find you online too. A quick, sharp, .site address is a great way to mark your company's location on the Internet. Not only that, but it's an excellent way to stake out your own location online as an individual.
The Sunrise phase will last until July 6 for those with TMCH claims. During this phase a one-year registration will cost $183.79 at A rates.
Then, from July 12 to July 15, the extension will open for everyone at the same price, $183.79 for a one-year registration at A rates, during the Landrush phase.
And finally on July 15 starting at 9:00 am PDT, .site will enter the GoLive phase when a one-year registration will be available or $34.87 at A rates.
If you want to stake out your .site without a TMCH claim for the GoLive phase before July 15 at 9:00 am PDT by registering for your domain for GoLivenow, you can benefit from an additional 40% off for a one-year registration, translating to $19.95 for a one-year registration at A rates.
Good news for infomaniacs! The .info extension is on sale!
Infomania is a compulsion to constantly verify and collect information often using the Internet. While sure, it must have existed in past centuries and millennia, infomania strikes us as a uniquely modern obsession to which we all sometimes succumb.
Quick: what's your best friend from elementary school's Facebook status? Who was Philip Barton Key? What's the phone number of the nearest Mexican restaurant? How long would it take to drive to Yosemite from your house? If you can't help but look these things up, then you too might have infomania.
For all things info, there's .info, available until the end of the year, December 31, 2015, for 40% off: that's $9.93 for a one-year registration instead of $16.55 at A rates.
This summer is all about you, Gandians: with .photo and .sexy on sale for 50% off it's time to get those domain names to celebrate your photogenic and sexy selves. Normally a .photo (which can be used for more than just selfies, by the way), is $32.49 for a one-year registration at A rates but this summer you can get one for just $16.25.
And .sexy, which normally runs $21.70 for a one-year registration at A rates is available for the sexy price of $10.85. The summer fun starts today, June 15 until September 15.
Today's batch of new gTLDs entering the Sunrise phase until August 15 have us feeling patriotic (not for France but the good ol' US of A) because we feel these gTLDs are some of what we do best: soccer (our own version of "football"), movies and coupons.
Soccer fans outside of North America may be quickly buying up .football (which just enteredGoLive this month). For those of us who know football is played with your hands, .soccer is now entering the Sunrise phase.
While we confess there's some great cinema from outside of the US (hat tip to French cinema in particular), it's a material fact that the US film industry has made the most money year after year for almost a century than any national cinema in the world (number 1! number 1!...), so we're excited to announce that .movie is also entering the Sunrise phase.
Finally, it's also a material fact that consumer spending in the US constitutes one of the highest percentages of GDP in the entire world as well (we won't speculate if that has anything to do with movies). When it comes to consumption, the US reigns supreme, and we couldn't have done it without our trusted coupon books. We remember fondly cutting coupons out of newspapers and buying only the on-sale items each week at the grocery store. Not surprisingly, coupons have been making the leap to the online world and now .coupons is entering the Sunrise phase as well (but we'll understand if you just have to wait until it's on sale).
These extensions will be in Sunrise until August 15 and will then be in the Landrush phase from August 23 to August 26 before finally entering the GoLive phase on August 26.
The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Sunrise, Landrush and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch has the unusual distinction of being the longest place name in the world and it's also located in the charming country of Wales. Brevity may be the soul of wit, but as Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch clearly evidences, in Wales it still doesn't account for anything. Good thing domain names aren't charged by the letter because .wales and its Welsh language counterpart .cymru are now available for a one-year registration at A rates for $21.00.
Originally delegated to the sunny Pacific island country of Palau, .pw, now one of a few go-to extensions for URL-shortener domains, also stands for Professional Web. We can think of a few more things: password for security enthusiasts, peewee for sports leagues, persistent world for game designers, pastry wizard for bakers, or even Prince William for fans of the royal family.
No matter how you want to interpret .pw, normally, a year's registration of one of these domains at A rates costs $15 but from June 10 to July 10, it's available for just $0.99 per year, so take advantage while you can.
A promotion on .cat domains, the TLD for Catalonia*, also has us excited for other reasons too.
When studies revealed that rodents infected with Toxoplasmosis gondii (n.b. that's gondii not Gandi), a parasite which may be spread by cats, may be attracted to cat odors rather than repelled as was the case with uninfected control subjects, the media was quick to suppose the parasite could have the same effect in humans and invented "Crazy cat lady syndrome," to explain why some of us just can't help but love cats.
Of course, there's no such syndrome. It turns out that cats infect us with love without resorting to parasitical proxies. And you don't need to look far on the Internet to see why. Normally expressing your cat love with a .cat domain for one year is $13.00 at A rates but from June 8 until August 17, you can get one for half-price: $6.50.
