We are going to proceed with an unscheduled maintenance on one of our databases, due to an incident that occurred. This operation may lead to an interruption in service of about 30 minutes.
The following will be affected:
- the creation/modification/deletion of email mailboxes or email forwarding via the website or our API - the completion (on Gandi's end) of your domain name purchases - possibly Gandi's entire website for a few minutes.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause
Following our summer promo on the .IO extension, we are pleased to announce that .IO prices have been reduced for both creations and renewals!
Since the registry grants prices to registrars based on volume, the more .IO domains we manage, the less we need to charge you. So, beginning today at 10:50 Paris time, both creations and renewals of .IO domains will be at €32 excl. VAT under A rates (a reduction of 4 Euros).
Finally, I would like to remind you that .IO transfers are free (at the registry and at Gandi), so feel free to spread the word!
We will be changing the machine that hosts the Gandi Blog database, which will lead to an interruption of the Gandi Blog service from Wednesday September 5th at midnight until around 3:00 AM Paris time (5:00 PM to 8:PM CST in America)
When you purchase a domain name at Gandi, you get 5 free email mailboxes, 1,000 forwarding addresses, and an unlimited number of aliases with a combined total of 1GB of storage.
If you need more than that, you can subscribe to Gandi's Mail Pack. for $1.30 excl. VAT per month (A rates). This subscription immediately grants you an unlimited number of mailboxes, additional storage space and additional features:
Since August 15th, AdamsNames, the registry in chage of .GD, VD, and TC has been performing a large technical migration that will shake up their architecture a bit. This technical migration is not without impact for us.
First of all is the temporary unavailability of .GD and .VG operations. We should be once again connected to the registry in a couple hours.
The second is the temporary suspension of the .TC registration platform: this extension seems to cause difficulties for its registry, which has also raised rates (renewals are now €73 excl.VAT per year under A rates, instead of €40). Registrations of new .TC domains are therefore halted until October (no exact date has yet been given to us). It is still possible to renew .TC domains however.
We will keep you informed via this news as we have more information from the Registry.
