Silently slinking across the night, half human, half shadow, a master of cunning and disguise, the Gandi ninja, a stealthy and deadly force, has infiltrated the .NINJA castle and is deftly making its way through the inky darkness, penetrating the vault of the castle. Suddenly, a thin shiver of light ricochets through the night. The air itself shrieks as the razor-thin steal of the katana slices through it. Within the blink of an eye, the Gandi ninja has once again merged with the silent ocean of the night.
With just a single swing of its quivering blade, the Gandi ninja has accomplished its clandestine mission: cutting the rates on .NINJA into miniscule shards of what they were.
That's right, as the sun dawns on Wednesday, April 1, the work of the Gandi ninja comes into the light: one-year registrations under the new .NINJA gTLD will cost just 2 USD at all rate scales (normally $19.61 at A rates).
This promotion will end with the month of April, so don't wait too long.
It was like any other morning at Gandi. We were sitting here, unsuspectedly, taking in another Sunrise Tuesday with its batch of new gTLDs, and reflecting on the news article to be written and posted. It would be hard to be witty about such a real estate-centric group: We had .PROPERTIES and .CONDOS, accompanied by the très français.MAISON as well as .IMMOBILIEN in the language of Goethe. The Spanish .TIENDA would provide a new online home for boutiques, but little opportunity for wordplay.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, .NINJA. Bam.
All of these extensions are available in Sunrise as of today, which means you have to have a trademark with TMCH in order to register them. If you don't, you can pre-register right now for the upcoming Landrush or GoLive phases and we'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment.
The list of newcomers, along with their respective prices in Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive/General Availability, follows:
