Back when the nTLD program was just starting, the cool way to promote them was to awkwardly mash the TLDs into a paragraph or story. We have so many TLDs in this transfer promo, we thought we'd do a little throwback to the old days with this post.

When you transfer a domain name, it's like it goes on a little trip. Earlier this year, we called it a quest. Since September is widely considered the best month to travel, we thought we'd compare transfers for our transfer promo starting this month to a world tour. Let us be your .guide.

As with any trip, you should really start by calling your bank. You don't want to mess up your .credit. Get your .creditcard cleared for Europe and East Asia. Any .place (the exact .country will be a surprise).

Okay. Now load up your phone with your preferred .audio for the flight. May we suggest some weepy guitar music to help you sleep, or, if you prefer staying awake, some high-energy .hiphop or dance music? We leave that up to you.

Alright, got your .tickets? Here we go.

We'll start off with a good old-fashioned trip to .vegas for some .juegos, as they say. And maybe a .rodeo? Do they have those in Vegas? Probably with showgirls and/or tigers.

Alright, next, we'll hop across the Pacific to .taipei to check out Taipei 101 at night and of course visit the Shilin Night Market.

Next we'll catch a flight up to .yokohama. As a major seaport, Yokohama is of course a .fishing center. We'll definitely want to cook up some fresh catches while we're there.

Then it's a .direct flight to .london. Obviously, we'll have to do the double-decker bus thing (it's a must). It's more fun to just wander around the city, though. There's always something .cooking (like haggis if you want to  feel like a .scot, which is really quite nice, despite .claims to the contrary. We'd rather get a curry, though).

Then we'll head to the .country to stay in an old BnB. We'll hit the .courses, play a few rounds of golf or .rent a .horse and feel like a real English gentleman, surveying the manor, if we .insure* that's alright with our .host. We don't want to .press anyone's hospitality too much.

Then it's off to .amsterdam for that great Dutch quality of .life: bicycles, bridges, canals, tulips even.

Next, .beer .fans will rejoice in a jaunt through Germany, taking us to .koeln, (aka .cologne, guess there's a nice .church there) and finally .bayern (Bavaria, that is) just in time for Oktoberfest. Too bad it's not the right time of year to .ski. We'll be right in the Alps. Oh well. We can just .surf the Eisbach in Munich instead. If .beer's not enough liquid courage, we'll bring a bottle of  .vodka just in case, though that wouldn't be very of us ...

Finally, .fyi, if you can't .finance that much travel, before you talk to any .accountants or take out any .loans, it's okay to join us just here, in the .digital realm, totally .gratis.

We hoped you liked our little  .global TLD tour, even if it was all just through our .website. There were just two we couldn't fit in: .republican and  .mba (no, that's not meant as a political statement). Transfers of any of the above TLDs are currently on sale at Gandi. Click the links above for pricing. If you have a domain in any of the above TLDs, it's a great time for them to take a little trip as well. Happy travels to you and your domains!

*Yeah, we know. But there's no .ensure.

September is a big month for the Catalonian capital Barcelona. First, on September 11, Barcelona commemorates the fall of Barcelona and defeat of Catalunya to Felipe V in the War of Spanish Succession with La Diada. It's not necessarily a festive celebration, but it's considered Catalunya's national day.

Later in the month, though, Barcelona celebrates its patron saint, La Mare de Déu de la Mercè, for a whole week with the la Mercè. Each day, there's a parade, including giant papier mâché figures. Another tradition, declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, is the castells. Basically, competitive human tower-building.

Whether you want to commemorate La Diada or celebrate la Mercè or build a castell out of domain names even (not sure how that would work, though), we're showing love for Barcelona this fall by putting .barcelona domains on sale for $25.00 per year (normally $85.46 at A rates)* starting September 1 until October 31, 2016 at 5:00 PM PST.

If emblematic form of lethargy of the cable TV era was channel surfing, the equivalent for the Internet age is the link hole.

If you've ever started by looking up something totally normal, like the caffeine molecule (because you're tired and you want coffee), and eventually you end up reading about the original formula for Tang, then you know how it is.

The internet works in mysterious ways.

And now, from September 1 until November 30, 2016 (at 4:00 PM PST), you can celebrate these mysterious ways with a .link domain at just $4.50* for the first year.

There's a big difference between a picture and a photo. Any teenager with a smartphone can take a picture but a photo is a work of art. In other words, you at least have to have an Instagram account.

And if photography is your preferred medium (and you're ready to evolve beyond the aforementioned Instagram account), take all of those carefully-framed shots of sunsets, beaches, weddings and vacations from this summer and put them on a .photo domain for just $5.00* for the first year from September 1 until November 30, 2016 (at 4:00 PM PST).

Land of chocolates, waffles and famous beers, home to Tintin and the Smurfs, this fall, if you've ever wanted to visit Belgium, we have some great ideas for you, and domain names to go along with it.

Two Belgian TLDs, .brussels and .vlaanderen, are 90% off September 1 through October 30, so let's see what you can do with your .brussels or .vlaanderen in hand.

Start off the weekend of September 2-4 in Brussels for sure, where the Comic Strip Festival will transform the Place Royale into a giant comic strip panel.

But also that weekend on the Grand Place, sample some of the best beers in the world at Belgian Beer Weekend, whether you're into Dubel, Trippel, lambic, it's all there.

The night of October 1 through 2 in Brussels is the Nuit Blanche all-night art festival and starting September 17 through the end of October every Thursday museums in Brussels are open late.

If this has you pining for or otherwise feeling the love for Brussels, get a .brussels domain this fall. Starting September 1 through October 31, 2016, .brussels domains will be available for just $5.00 per year at A rates*.

But Belgium is more than just Brussels. Surrounding Brussels is Flanders, or in Flemish Vlaanderen. From September 17 through October 1 the Flemish city of Ghent hosts the Festival of Flanders music festival.

Or in Antwerp, also in Flanders, fashionistas will want to catch the Antwerp Fashion Weekend from September 30 through October 2.

On on September 16, 2016, beer lovers can attend the inauguration of the beer pipeline, a pipeline being built under Bruges (also in Flanders) to pump beer at 4,000 liters per hour from downtown De Halve Maan brewery to the brewery's bottling plant outside the city.

Stroll through Flanders with a .vlaanderen domain in hand, for sale for $5.00 per year* from September 1 through October 31, 2016.

You're listening to No Bullshit radio. We're here in our lovely downtown San Francisco studio bringing you all the freshest TLDs all the time.

We've got some great new TLDs coming up, but before we get to that, we've got some merch to get rid of here.

First, we've got .audio. This is perfect for sound engineers or anybody who complains whenever they hear a song that isn't mixed right. Normally, .audio goes for $18.07 per year but, to our loyal listeners, we're giving it away for just $9.03*.

After that, we've got .hiphop. This one's good for all the hottest tracks, or slow jams or just chill-out bedroom music. Usually it's $25.67 but just for you, it'll be only $12.84*.

Last, we thought it was time for some .guitars. They can be soft, weepy folk or bombastic noise machines. Great for smashing, burning, launching into the audience, flossing, you get the idea. Ordinarily, .guitars are  $32.44 but we have them now for just $16.22*.

You don't have to be caller number seven to win, you just have to create a new .audio, .hiphop or .guitars domain between September 1 through November 30, 2016.

And now let's get back into the music. We got some great tracks coming up in this next set right here on No Bullshit radio.

It's not often, but when it happens, we want you to be aware. As of August 29, 2016, prices on .hk domains have increased. New .hk domains and .hk domain renewals are now $55.67* per year at A rates. Transfers are now $47.16* and owner changes are $167.01* and, overall a 30% increase at all rates.

Please note that these changes reflect pricing changes instituted at the .hk registry.

We apologize for the suddenness of this change. Please feel free to contact our Customer care team if you have any questions.

*Prices in USD. Please see .hk for full price details.

Followers of this page may know we cover a lot of new gTLD releases. Of course, the nTLD program is great, it opens up a lot of creative possibilities for domain names that simply wouldn't exist otherwise.

But every so often, there's that rare moment when you get something really special: a TLD that exists already, usually a ccTLD, which previously restricted its registrations in some way, opens the doors to the general public.

Such is the case with .fi, the ccTLD for Finland. Historically, .fi domains have only been open to Finnish residents and companies, but as of 3:00 AM PDT on September 5, .fi will bust wide open for anyone and everyone. The .fi TLD has lot of good options, too.

Of course, some of the good ones are already taken : (and, (even, and are registered already. But as of this writing there are still a lot of great .fi domains out there:, even

So to lighten the load on anyone who wants to give a .fi domain a shot and to celebrate the new found .fi-dom, starting today, August 29, until September 30, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT, .fi domain creations will be just $13.50 (compare to the normal $19.50 at A rates)*.

That means even while the local presence requirements are still in place you can get a .fi domain for this price. But if you can meet the requirements and you do want to get your .fi domain before it opens to everyone, do it before September 2.

That's because September 2 the .fi domain service will be closing and domain registration will not be active until the new service opens up September 5.

*Prices in USD. For local prices see the .fi price page.

**Update 9/13:

After a bumpy start, .fi registrations are now truly open to all (two-character domains were additionally restricted until September 12). One final note: non-Finnish residents will still need to click the "Modify" link at the Contacts step in the domain registration process in order to indicate that they are not Finnish. This is due to the fact that Finnish registration numbers are still required for Finnish residents to register .fi domains.

Of course, if you run into any additional difficulties or have other questions, feel free to contact our Customer care team and they can help you through the process.

With winter approaching, it's the time of year when our fuzzy little rodent friends the squirrels start to gather nuts. Then, each type of squirrels will .store their nuts differently. Grey squirrels bury their nuts all over the place to hide them from their competitors. Red squirrels put theirs in one big pile.

Kind of like domain names. Some of you like to spread your domain names out and .store them in a bunch of different registrars. Others .store them all in one place.

In honor of the squirrels and the squirrel-like among you, .store (perfect for storage or for buying and selling, of course) is on sale at Gandi for just $7.99 per year at A rates* from August 25 until December 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM PST.

Will you store your .store with us?

*Price in USD. See the .store price page for local prices.
