We have updated mirrors.gandi.net following today's announcement of the GHOST vulnerability. This newly-discovered flaw is in the popular glibc library, which is used in many Linux distributions and different flavors of Unix. The newly-discovered flaw, which has been present since November 2000, enables an attacker to execute code remotely on a vulnerable system.

We recommend that you upgrade your servers immediately. The following patches have already been made available by the distribution teams:

We will keep this list and our mirrors up-to-date as more affected distributions release their fixes.

If you are a Simple Hosting customer, we recommend that you restart your instance.




This may come as a surprise, but we're pretty nerdy around here, so it makes sense that .io is one of our favorite TLDs.

It seems that you, our customers, feel the same way. Thanks to your undying nerdery, we've always been able to offer extremely competitive prices on .io domains.

Today, we're pleased to announce that we're dropping prices on .io! Previously, one-year registrations and renewals were $39 (at A rates). Starting today, the new prices will be:

  • Registration: $35.00
  • Renewal: $35.00

Note: This change will only be applied to USD, not EUR or GBP, due to currency fluctuations in favor of the US dollar. Also, customers in the US have been clamoring the loudest for .io promo codes. We oblige. Edit: Let's not make bad jokes.

Following the deregulation of the Swiss Franc (CHF) by the Swiss Central Bank, the exchange rate with other currencies has experienced a major and highly-criticized change (+20%!).

This decision is not without consequences for companies purchasing products from Switzerland. In our case, this effects the extensions operated by the Swiss registry SWITCH which manages the .CH and .LI extensions.

This is why, in accordance with our contract, we are forced to apply an increase of €1.50 excl. VAT per year for .CH domains, as well as an increase of €2 excl. VAT per year for .LI domains in all price rates.

This increase takes effect immediately.

We will be monitoring the exchange rate over the next few weeks, and if it turns out that the currency returns to a more "normal" value, we will adapt our price accordingly.

Additionally, please note that for the first quarter of the year, we are going to be working on the integration of our catalogue into Swiss Francs, so that our Swiss customers are not penalized.

Finally, we want to remind you that simultaneously with this financial issue, the registry, SWITCH, will be totally stopping its activity as a registrar and releasing all the .CH and .LI domains that they administer. Several months ago we started a .CH and .LI transfer campaign to Gandi, accompanied by a promotion. This is still vaid, though updated of course with regards to the current news mentioned above.

 


It's the end of the alphabet, so it should be the end of the domain name too, right?

We are happy to have this domain to offer you, and courtesy of our friends at gen.xyz, we can do so for the totally reasonable price of $5.00.

We're talking less than a no-fat grande latte, here. Lasts longer, too.

Pick one up now - it's a great investment. Gandi and .XYZ will collaborate again to donate $1 for each domain registered in January to OpenHatch, a non-profit dedicated to matching new open source contributors with communities, tools and education.

We had some delay getting into .SPACE, so Gandi mission control is offering you this status update.

The Sunrise is over, and we are in the Landrush phase starting Monday, January 19th at 16:00 UTC, for a full week. The GoLive date is January 28 16h00 UTC.

Every so often, the registries allow us to do something special and offer this kind of special promo during Landrush.  It's a great deal, so take advantage of it now!

The .SPACE TLD is priced at $169.83 during Sunrise (excluding tax). It will be $9.60 (for all price levels) during the Landrush, and will return to $12.97 per year at GoLive.

Note! We accidentally sent an email about this to a few more people than we intended. If you are one of those people, we do apologise for doing so. We hope you don't mind knowing about the promo all the same.

Update Tuesday, January 20, 2:30 p.m. PST (2015-01-20 22:30 UTC):

There were some difficulties yesterday registering .space domains during Landrush (operations were failing with "2201 : Trademark Claims Period for .space is not open"). This issue has been resolved. For details, see status.gandi.net.



Two more new gTLDs are making their electoral debut.

Both .vote and .voto will cost $211.93 during the Sunrise phase, which began January 13 and will last until February 12, 2015.

The GoLive phase will begin February 17, 2015, after which either of these TLDs will cost $95.34 for a one-year registration at A rates.

There will be no Landrush phase, so pre-register early!
