Today, .green is entering the Landrush phase. New one-year registrations will cost $179.13 at A rates until Landrush ends on March 14, 2015 at 5:00 a.m. PDT (12:00 p.m. UTC).

The GoLive phase will begin March 24 at 5:00 a.m. PDT (12:00 p.m. UTC); thereafter, one-year registrations will cost $95.30.

Note: You can secure a Landrush registration now, or pre-register for GoLive; if you pre-register, we'll 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 the higher price (see above).

A great San Franciscan once said: “I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you gotta give em hope.

Today, we're proud to share a step forward with our friends in the diverse communities represented by a new TLD (a place to put your hope, if you will): .LGBT.

Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, an ally--or a business targeting them--.lgbt will be what you make of it. We hope to see this new online space flourish as a new and powerful way for people to connect. We're proud to offer domain names in this extension and help create a safe place online to support, discuss, promote and celebrate LGBTQ interests, causes and communities.

That being said, the introduction of .lgbt, managed by the Afilias registry, has not been without controversy. We'll be following this story as it plays out and counting on your feedback to guide us.

The GoLive price for a one-year registration of a .lgbt domain is $57.25 at A rates.

Two more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase on Wednesday, February 11 at 8 a.m. PST (3 p.m. UTC).  We haven't decided whether it's more fit for a logistics company, for take-out food or for a maternity ward but we are happy to deliver .delivery.  And we're pumped to offer a jolt of .energy to the domain name registration world with the GoLive for .energy.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Landrush, which ends Wednesday, February 10 at 7:59 a.m. PST (2:59 p.m. UTC) and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

The Landrush phase for 1- and 2-letter .FR domains will allow anyone who meets the registry's eligibility requirements for .FR domains to register available domains, though at a higher price.
h
The Landrush is divided into 4 weekly periods, each one with a lower price (prices below are excluding VAT):

    from 16/02, 15:00 to 23/02: €18,300 for one year
    from 23/02, 12:00 to 02/03: €12,200 for one year
    from 02/03, 12:00 to 09/03: €6,950 for one year
    from 09/03, 12:00 to 17/03: €190 for one year

The renewal of these domains will be at the normal .FR renewal rate (ex. €12 for one year under A rates). There will not be any pre-reservation for a given date, and in the event that the domain was taken before yours, we will refund your order in full.

If you have followed recent financial news, you have certainly noticed the historic high of the US Dollar versus the Euro.

The direct implication of this high for a European company that purchases goods in US Dollars is that there is an increase in costs. The consequence of this is that we are losing money in certain price rates.

And as our business model is to not use domains as a loss leader to push other products, we must revise our prices on the extensions in question in order to be able to continue to bring you the best possible quality of service.

Despite this, we will continue to allow you to benefit from the promotions that have been negotiated with the registries, notably with a major operation coming soon, and if the Euro/Dollar trend turns around and stabilises, we will readjust our prices downward.

Two more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase: .casa and .work.  We invite you to make yourself at home with .casa.  As they say, mi .casa es su .casa.  Or if you're feeling more like being productive, feel free to get to .work with the new .work gTLD.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

IRC is a big part of the culture at Gandi. Our internal IRC server is where most of our internal communication occurs. Those who have proposed we migrate to one of those fancy new hosted chat services have been slapped around a bit with a large trout. You'll have to pry it out of our cold, dead hands. Our precioussss...

In addition to our internal IRC network, we also have a couple of public IRC channels, though we don't advertise them too much: #gandi-mail and #gandi-hosting have been active on the Freenode network for years.

Why #gandi-mail and #gandi-hosting, instead of just #gandi?

If you've ever tried to join #gandi on Freenode just to see if it existed, you'll have been disappointed. That was because until now, #gandi was a private channel, protected with a password and used only by Gandi staff to discuss top secret plans to take over the world and other important things.

That's about to change!

Welcome to #gandi

We've moved our internal discussion to a different channel and removed the password: #gandi is now open to all! \o/

If you already have an IRC client installed, click here, or configure it manually using the information below:

Server: irc.freenode.net
Port: 6667 (SSL Port: 6697)
Channel: #gandi

People who don't have an IRC client installed can use Freenode webchat.

Not an official support channel

IRC has never been an official way of contacting our support team, though you will often find Gandi developers and support agents there, as well as a contingent of helpful Gandi customers and friends. It's a great way to get a quick answer to general questions and status checks.

If you're able to solve your problem thanks to the people in this channel, great! Otherwise, the only official way to get help is to open a ticket or contact us via live chat from within your account.

For more information, including channel guidelines, see the Gandi community repo on GitHub.

We <3 Freenode

Freenode is an IRC network providing discussion facilities for the Free and Open Source Software communities, not-for-profit organizations, and related communities.

We embrace the Freenode culture, and we're proud to provide their domain names and SSL certificates since 2011.
