Nominet is the registry for the United Kingdom's ccTLD .uk, which also includes .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk, all of which are currently available through Gandi. And they have officially announced a rate increase on the domains they offer for both creation and renewal.

This increase is set to take place on March 1, 2016 (at 0:00 UTC). The price changes are as follows:

- Creation and renewal of a domain for one year at A rates:

£5.00 (currently £4.00)

€ 8.00 (currently € 7.00)

$9.00 (currently $8.00)

- Creation and renewal of a domain for between two and ten years at A rates:

£5.00 (currently £3.00)

€ 8.00 (currently € 6.00)

$9.00 (currently $8.00)

We should point out that this means that there is no longer a multi-year discount for .uk renewals in Euros or Pounds sterling. As is presently the case in US Dollars, it will be the same rate per year to renew for one year as it is to renew for more than one year at a time.

So, as we generally like to do before a rate increase like this, we would suggest that if you are the owner of a .uk domain (including of course .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk), that you renew it now if possible before the change takes effect. We recommend renewing for as many years as possible.

Take this example, for instance: before March 1st, it will cost £27 (that's € 54 or $72) all together to renew a .uk domain for nine years. After March 1st, though? That price goes up to £45 (€ 72 or $81).

Or, if there's a .uk domain that you've had your eye on, now is the time to get it.

What were the odds? We're not sure. But if you are, perhaps you care to make it interesting with a .bet domain, entering the Sunrise phase as of 8:00 AM PST today, January 5, 2016.

If you really want to hedge your bets on the .bet of your choice and have a TMCH claim to back it up, domains in this extension will be available for $102.87 in the Sunrise phase, which lasts until February 4, 2016.

Then, if you're feeling lucky, register in the Landrush phase, which opens February 11 at 8:00 AM PST, now. In this phase, domains go for $2754.19 per year. Landrush closes on February 12 at 7:59 AM PST.

Finally, if your odds are good that your domain will remain unclaimed in either Sunrise or Landrush, this extension enters the GoLive phase on March 3 at 8:00 AM PST at a price of $20.79 per year at A rates.

Great for combos (like the highly trendy .co.in third-level domain) or by itself, for the first half of 2016, .in domains will be half price. Which means while a .in domain normally costs $15.50 per year (at A rates), from now until June 30, 2016, domains in this extension are on sale for just $7.75 per year.

While most of Oceania entered 2016 first, the next continent to celebrate the new year is starting it out right. At least as far as it's corresponding TLD, .asia, is concerned.

That's because .asia is ringing in the new year with a three-month long promotion of 70% off domain names. That means that instead of $25.00 per year at A rates, .asia domains from now until March 31, 2016 will be only $7.50.

There is a requirement for .asia domains that at least one contact is physically located on the continent of Asia, but don't worry if you can't find one Gandi provides you this one for for free.

Those of you hungry for adventure may be a litlte disheartened by the fact that it seems there's little left within our collective reach to explore. It seems like the whole Earth isn't just already explored but has been sliced up into sections of a few hundred square feet that rent for a couple thousand dollars a piece per month. Where's the excitement of discovery in that?

And it's no better in cyberspace than in the meatspace. Traditional gTLDs are getting just as overcrowded and all the good domains in those gTLDs are long gone. But there's good news! Just like SpaceX's latest triumph this month is busting the next frontier open wide, another new one has opened as well. Of course, we're referring to .space: the final(ish) online frontier.

If you're itching to boldly go where no internaut has navigated before, from January 1 through January 31, 2016, .space domains will be on sale for 80% off. That means instead of paying $7.97 per year (at A rates) on a .space domain, you would instead pay $1.60 per year this month.

We are starting off the year right, with a virtual explosion of colorful extensions (and then some) on promotion from now until June 30, all of them 50% off.

First, here are our deals on as many colors as you can find in a New Year's fireworks display:

.black on sale for $28.63 per year (normally $57.25).
.blue on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).
.pink on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).

And bringing all the colors of the rainbow together, we also have a great deal on .lgbt:

.lgbt on sale for $28.63 per year (normally $57.25).

Going one further with diversity, we are also offering deals on

.kim for people and families whose surname is Kim, for $8.16 per year (instead of the usual $16.31)

and

.shiksha, which is for the culture of writing and phonetics of one of six forms of Sanskrit Hindu. Domains in this extension will be available for $8.16 per year (instead of $16.31).

Next, representing at least the black and the red:

.poker is on sale for $28.61 per year (instead of $57.22).

Then there are a couple of TLDs on sale which don't really have a direct relationship to colors and diversity, but are for areas we would certainly hope are diverse:

.pro for professionals is on sale for $10.00 per year (instead of $20.00).
.info for information of course is on sale for $4.97 per year (instead of $9.93).

Finally, rounding out the list are two TLDs that are focused on mobile technology:

.mobi for $9.00 per year instead of the usual $18.00.
.移动 (Chinese for "mobile", punycode .xn-6frz82g) for $8.16 per year rather than the usual $16.31.

So, how about one last champagne toast? To good deals on domains in 2016!

MTV capitalized on the beach bros (of Italian heritage) who apparently populate the beaches of New Jersey with the surprising reality show hit Jersey Shore. So we wanted to be clear: this promotion isn't about Italian-American culture or doing shots in a hot tub or Snooki. This is for a different Jersey: "Old" Jersey, the channel island. For you hipsters, the original, authentic Jersey (really, it has nothing to do with New Jersey).

This month we have a great promotion on Jersey's own TLD .je. But that's not all. If you know Jersey (the channel island) you know it often travels with Guernsey, another channel island, who's TLD is .gg (which also, incidentally, stands for "Good Game"). You can have a domain in either or both for a reduced price this month : $50.00 $37.50 per year instead of the usual $75.00 until January 31, 2016 23:59 UTC February 7, 2016 23:59 UTC.

It's a great time to be a designer of any kind, really. It's no coincidence that this coincides with the Internet really coming into it's own. With everyone from huge multi-national corporations down to tiny Mom and Pops (and, yes, also literally your mom and your pop) in need of a website, design is in high demand.

Starting January 1 until February 15, 2016, we're making it a bit easier for designers by offering .design domains for half-price: that's $31.18 instead of the normal $62.36.

This is your chance to show off your design skills with a site on a domain that speaks to your calling as a designer. If you're new to the game, get a .design domain to throw some ideas online. Or if you're already an established designer, consolidate your online portfolio in a place that says unambiguously what you're all about.

What's your .design?
