"The best things in life are free," sang Bing Crosby in 1949, but for those that aren't, there's today's category of gTLDs for the release of previously protected domains: Food and Goods.

The EAP prices (at A rates, not including any applicable tax) will vary by day, and will be approximately as follows:

    Day 1 (July 15, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667
    Day 2 (July 16, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$4,222
    Day 3 (July 17, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$1,778
    Day 4 (July 18, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$945
    Days 5-7 (July 19-21, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$189

Because if there's one thing more satisfying than making money, it's spending money. This isn't the moon and stars; this one goes out to all you consumers out there (the normal price for a one-year registration at A rates is on the right):

And next week, the theme is Shopping ...

Register a domain under one of these TLDs?:

.tld

New gTLDs .cool and .watch are entering the GoLive phase on Wednesday 7 May, at 8am PST (16h00 UTC), and will thus be open for registration by all.

If you're reading this before the GoLive time specified above, you can still take advantage of Landrush to secure your domain, provided you're willing to spend $139.68 for the first year's registration.

Once GoLive begins, the price for a new one-year registration of either of these extensions will be $32.49 at A rates.
