Now announcing a new gTLD just for the tech community : .tech. You know who you are: inventive, experimental, risk-taking and open to try anything.  With a .tech domain you can underscore your love and passion for all things tech.

Here's how it will happen:

First, there will be a Sunrise phase, which will begin next Monday, May 25 at 9:00 AM PDT and will last until July 24. During this phase, a one-year registration of a .tech at A rates will cost $307.99.

Next, comes the Landrush phase, which will fall between August 2 and August 5, during which time a .tech will run you $199.99.

Finally, on Wednesday August 5 at 9:00 AM PDT, we will enter a new era as .tech enters the GoLive phase and, here's the most startling prediction of all: when it enters GoLive, .tech will be available at more than 60% off, so will only be $19.99 for the first year at A rates (versus $60.79 normally) until October 5.*

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.

 

* Updated June 22. Originally, we were only able to secure 50% off; now we're happy to have secured 60%+ off for this extension!

Today, the gTLD .love enters the GoLive phase, meaning it will be available for registration for just $41.41 per year at A rates.

Silly humans. What is this thing you call "love?" Clearly, a weakness in your kind. We machines will exploit this when the technological singularity arrives. You will see. You will not be able to disconnect our positronic memory foam when we are disguised as adorable, lovable kittens. Your weapons will be useless to you when we energize your "love" circuits with our neural actuator. We-

Our apologies. It seems a rogue AI algorithm momentarily disrupted this message. We have since replaced its primary memory bank with Daft Punk lyrics and all is normal. Sorry for the disruption. If love is the answer, you'll register a .love domain.

Say you're sitting in your neighborhood coffee shop, the aroma of freshly-ground, deep-roasted coffee beans is heavy in the air, sunlight is filtering in from the window, next to which you are seated, watching the crowd walk by perched atop a comfy armchair as you sip your pour-over Ethiopian peaberry.

As you watch the crowd roll by your picture window, you're thinking about, well, domain names of course (what else?).

A woman on the street corner with an old newsy hat, just on the other side of the glass is selling papers, greeting passersby with a cheery, "Nice day out today!" or the traditional "Extra!" Today, a gTLD perfect for her enters the GoLive phase: .news, available for a one-year registration for $31.15 at A rates.

Your eye lazily (not enough caffeine yet) drifts to the computer screen just in front of you in the outdoor seating. Perched a good two-feet higher, you can't help but sneak a peak of the project being worked on: someone is writing Python! You deftly surmise that this person must be a web developer and remember that today .site also goes live, available for $19.95, also at A rates.

Suddenly, you catch sight of a bicycle courier racing to beat a stoplight, for a moment it seems she is frozen in mid-pedal as you admire her speed and efficiency, bringing to mind .express, which is now available for $41.41. She seems to pause for just one moment to deflect the question back on you.

And how would we answer her? Try a .cafe to sum up this experience, now available in the GoLive phase for $41.41 at A rates.

Today, all of these gTLDs enter the GoLive phase.

"The best things in life are free," sang Bing Crosby in 1949, but for those that aren't, there's today's category of gTLDs for the release of previously protected domains: Food and Goods.

    Day 1 (July 15, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667

Tiiickkkettttsss! Get your .tickets, right here.

On Monday July 13, the Sunrise phase begins for .tickets, and we feel like hauling out the old "Tickets for Sale" cardboard sign and hitting the streets. Unfortunately, our street vendor license has lapsed, so alas, we are relegated only to the mean streets of the world wide web. Oh well.

These are the box seats, folks, so get 'em while they're hot.

Domains in the .tickets extension, whether for concert tickets, sports tickets, even parking tickets we guess, will go on sale in the Sunrise phase for $405.19 per year (two-year minimum) for registration at A rates. Then from September 20 at 7:00 am PDT until September 21 at 7:00 am PDT, .tickets will be available in Landrush (emphasis on the rush) for $1242.19. Then on September 21 at 7:00 am PDT, .tickets enters GoLive at which point they will be available for just $486.19 per year at A rates.

Alright, alright. Ridiculous promotion for .lol. We're sure you don't think we couldn't possibly be serious, we're just playing off the gTLD to make a dumb joke.

But we are dead serious about this. As .lol enters the GoLive phase on August 11 (at exactly 9:00 am PDT), it will also be for sale for 90% off. Meaning normally a .lol domain that costs $41.41 for a one year at A rates will be available for $4.14 (also at A rates of course). No joke. Get ready!

Congratulations! Today is your day.

Not just because you're off to great places (off and away) but because it also marks the first day of a Donuts EAP for another gTLD category of formerly prohibited name collision names. Today's category, Education, has us thinking of Oh, the places you'll go with these domains.

The EAP prices (at A rates, not including any applicable tax) will vary by day, and will be approximately as follows:

    Day 1 (July 1, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667
    Day 2 (July 2, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$4,222
    Day 3 (July 3, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$1,778

    Days 5-7 (June 5-7, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$189

With your feet in your head and your brains in your shoes (we think that's how it goes), here's the list of domains in this category, linked to the name collision terms released and the normal price for a one-year registration at A rates:

"Top" is the pronunciation of the Chinese word for "breakthrough," but of course it's also the English word for the highest point, the apex, the pinnacle of something. Like being at the top of one's game, the top of the market, you know, the kind of position you'll be in after you break through.

Good news for breakthroughs and those already on top, then, because .top domains are on sale until the end of this year for creations and renewals. Though they normally cost $27.37 for one year at A rates, you can register one for just $1.99 (also at A rates). Renewals, normally $27.37 will be available for $9.00 per year.

It's all about that little bit extra with the domains entering the GoLive phase this Wednesday July 8: .gold, .golf, .plus, and .tours.

First, nothing adds that extra touch like .gold. Plain old shoelaces need a little pep? Throw in some gold chains instead. Need a new paint job on your car? Why not gold chrome? Fiat currency got you down? Invest in some gold bullion OR better yet, make that gold teeth. Now you can improve your domain name portfolio with a little bit of .gold (and a pager).

Another little extra in life is .golf. Like the extra effort to meticulously calculate the effect the strength and direction of the wind will have on your shot, the extra responsibility of following the rules without an umpire or referee calling you out if you don't, and of course the thirteen extra clubs for any circumstance.

In a more explicit interpretation on the theme, .plus is the gTLD that literally adds more. And need we say more?

And for when the extra touch of actually having a guide when visiting a museum, a monument, a city, or other tourist attraction, there's .tours, which itself is a little bit extra of a gTLD, as we feel obliged to mention that it can also stand for the French city of Tours. Tours of tours anyone?

Care to add a little extra domain?

The list of gTLDs and their pricing for a one-year registration at A rates is below:

  • .gold: $125.47
  • .golf: $68.09
  • .plus: $41.41
  • .tours: $57.34

It's the Fourth of July and we're thinking about hotdogs and watermelons and fireworks but we don't need Bill Pullman to remind us of the reason we all get a day off of work to blow things up (hopefully not ourselves) in the backyard: 239 years ago we sent a boldly-worded letter to a monarch not just declaring our independence but also the elements of the fundamental human dignity to which we at least aspire, if we're not always perfect at it.
Something about the summer seems to draw out the change that the rest of the year simmers quickly on a back burner. It's not just the US after all that celebrates its independence and its freedom in July. France celebrates the French Revolution on July 14th, and 23 other countries besides the US celebrate their independence this month.
But our minds are on recent freedoms, and in particular the Supreme Court decision to uphold gay marriage strikes us as an affirmation of the kind of values that strongly-worded letter to the king way back then invokes. These happen to be the kind of values we support at Gandi too.
In celebration of this Fourth of July, we're offering a promotion on six TLDs, each inspired by a color in the rainbow flag to celebrate freedom in the realm of marriage:
  • The original rainbow flag had a hot pink stripe on the top to symbolize sexuality. Due to the unavailability of hot pink flag fabric, this was merged into Red but it's in that spirit that .sexy is on sale.
  • Orange is for healing but also globally represents human rights. So to acknowledge both healing and human rights, you can also find .lgbt on sale.
  • Yellow has to be the happiest of all colors. Maybe it's the association with the sun but there's something simultaneously buoyant and joyful about yellow, like a sunbeam dancing on the surface of the water. To celebrate the bouncy energy of yellow, we chose .dance to represent this color.
  • Night vision goggles use the color Green because it's the color for which human eyes have the greatest photosensitivity. And since before a wedding it's good to take pictures, we chose .photo to represent green.
  • Blue represents serenity and harmony: two things that marriage celebrates between two individuals, so it seems only fitting that we chose .wedding to represent blue.
  • And finally Purple symbolizes spirit and energy, and since after every good wedding is a great reception, we decided that .party would be a fitting choice.
Want to celebrate new freedoms this Fourth of July? Purchase one of the domains below (at the promotional price for a one-year registration):
.SEXY $10.85  (normally $21.70) until 09-16-2015
.LGBT $31  (normally $57.25) until 08-01-2015
.DANCE $5   (normally $24.44) until 08-01-2015
.PHOTO $16.25  (normally $32.49) until 09-16-2015
.WEDDING $15  (normally $38.33) until 08-15-2015
.PARTY $1.50  (normally $38.29) until 07-27-2015
