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.

 

Register a .io:

.io

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.

After studying how our IaaS services are used, and evaluating how they are priced, we have decided to cut prices and simplify the pricing model. As of 02/19/2015, you will be able to save up to 40%, depending on your usage pattern.

We aren't just cutting prices across the board. There is a boost in capacity for bigger users, too. The prior limit of 500GB of free outbound traffic per month is now lifted to 2 TB (4 times as much!) per month. Of course you can still use more, we just ask you to pay a bit for really extreme loads over 2 TB/month. This higher limit is possible due to investments we have made in optimizing our infrastructure, and we are passing the benefits on to you. Also, as IPv4 has become more expensive, the price of an IPv4 interface has actually gone up, while IPv6 is (and always was) free. Also, a vCPU is now $0.004 / €0.0033 per hour, and we no longer charge more if you don't use as many - it's just a flat, predictable cost per unit.

If you are a heavy user of Gandi Cloud hosting, you will see a big drop in your overall cost of ownership. Smaller footprint users will see smaller benefits, proportionally.

Also, on top of the recent fluctuations in currency values between the US dollar and the Euro, we have decreased credit prices in USD by 7.5%.

Here's some examples of pricing in dollars / euros for typical configurations (based on buying a 2 Millions credit pack):

  • 1 CPU + 1GB RAM + 20GB disk + 1 IPV4: from $17.30 / €13.31 (264 credits / hour) to $13.79 / €12.67 (220 cr / h) per month
  • 2 CPU + 2GB RAM + 50GB disk + 1 IPV4: from $33.28 / €25.60 to $23.95 / €19.96 per month
  • 4 CPU + 4GB RAM + 200GB disk + 1 IPV4: from $72.73 / €55.94 to $49.71 / €41.43 per month

If you choose only IPv6, you can save even more, and end up paying less than 10 dollars a month for a server:

  • 1 CPU + 1GB RAM + 20GB + 1 IPV6 would cost $9.56 / €7.96 per month.

If you recently purchased a bunch of credits, dont' worry! You will still benefit from these changes, since your credits will last that much longer.

Check out the full cost breakdown here. If you have questions, please contact our support team.

We want to help, and we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what you think at feedback@gandi.net, any time.

Happy provisioning!


.osaka is entering the Sunrise phase, which will last until March 11.

The Landrush phase will last from March 19 to April 1, 2015, and the GoLive phase will begin March 31, 2015 at 7 p.m. PST.

The corresponding Sunrise, Landrush and Golive prices of a one-year registration can be found below, all at A rates:

  • .osaka: $209.12 | $229.11 | $47.82

Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases. We'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment – as soon as your chosen phase begins – for the best chance of success.

Note: Like most geographic extensions, .OSAKA is subject to certain requirements. You must be a resident of the Osaka prefecture, or have a physical address registered there, or be from one of the communes of the Osaka prefecture, or have some other link, direct or indirect, with the Osaka prefecture.

The Japanese registry reserves the right to verify that the registrant of any .osaka TLD meets these requirements.

We have released a new version of our server management scripts and invite all Gandi Server users to update the `gandi-hosting-vm2` package. Version 2.5-1 contains several improvements for both Xen and HVM platforms.

You'll find more details in the Changelog (below). In a nutshell, these are some the improvements you might notice:

  • Fixed a bug that created oddly named files at the system's root (see swap and untar in the changelog)
  • Improved boot speed (related to the bug fix)
  • Better network interface configuration
  • Better handling of configuration variables

You can follow these steps to update the package on your distribution:

On Debian / Ubuntu 

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gandi-hosting-vm2

On Fedora / RedHat / CentOS

sudo yum update gandi-hosting-vm2

On Mandriva / Mageia

sudo urpmi gandi-hosting-vm2

You should then copy the new configuration files or merge the new contents with your existing files, by comparing the old and the new versions.

You can use the following command to get the new file list:

On Debian / Ubuntu

find /etc -type f -iname "*.dpkg-dist"

On distributions that use ''rpm''

find /etc -type f -iname "*.rpmnew"

With this new version of the package, the main network interface (eth0) is no longer configured via DHCP by default. If you still want to use DHCP, you just have to remove the name of the main network interface (eth0) from the CONFIG_NODHCP' variable setting in the config file located at "/etc/default/gandi" (or /etc/sysconfig/gandi depending on your distribution).

You should get:

# /etc/default/gandi or /etc/sysconfig/gandi

CONFIG_NODHCP="eth0" # to disable DHCP on the listed interfaces

Or:

# /etc/default/gandi or /etc/sysconfig/gandi

CONFIG_NODHCP="" # to enable DHCP on all interfaces, including eth0

If you have any trouble, please contact our support team (http://www.gandi.net/support/contact/mail) or join our staff and other customers on #gandi, on the Freenode IRC network.

CHANGELOG

  • Resize: fixing device name when resizing main disk on hvm
  • Use CONFIG_* we need to source the default file in gandi-mount initscript.
  • If device is swap, do not try to untar configuration from it. This speeds up boot in some cases.
  • Do not show error on link up if iface is not ready.
  • Link up the net iface in all cases.
  • Route IPv4 using the first net iface available.
  • Fix default route configuration.
  • Use detected version of ip command everywhere.
  • dhclient does not rewrite the resolv.conf file when attaching a dhcp-enabled interface, CONFIG_NAMESERVER is checked.
  • SSH management key has been removed from images and from the package.
  • Re-add action for variable CONFIG_SYSCTL
