*UPDATED JULY 1 :

We are starting off the year summer right, with a virtual explosion of colorful extensions (and then some) on promotion from now until June 30 December 31, all of them 50% off.

First, here are our deals on as many colors as you can find in a New Year's July Fourth fireworks display:

.black on sale for $28.63 per year (normally $57.25).
.blue on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).
.pink on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).
.red on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).

And bringing all the colors of the rainbow together, we also have a great deal on .lgbt:

.lgbt on sale for $28.63 per year (normally $57.25).

Going one further with diversity, we are also offering deals on

.kim for people and families whose surname is Kim, for $8.16 per year (instead of the usual $16.31)

and

.shiksha, which is for the culture of writing and phonetics of one of six forms of Sanskrit Hindu. Domains in this extension will be available for $8.16 per year (instead of $16.31).

Next, representing at least the black and the red:

.poker is on sale for $28.61 per year (instead of $57.22).

Then there are a couple of TLDs on sale which don't really have a direct relationship to colors and diversity, but are for areas we would certainly hope are diverse:

.pro for professionals is on sale for $10.00 per year (instead of $20.00).
.info for information of course is on sale for $4.97 per year (instead of $9.93).

Finally, rounding out the list are two TLDs that are focused on mobile technology:

.mobi for $9.00 per year instead of the usual $18.00.
.移动 (Chinese for "mobile", punycode .xn-6frz82g) for $8.16 per year rather than the usual $16.31.

 

*And now also: .promo domains are $9.70 per year instead of the usual $19.40.

 

So, how about one last champagne toast can of beer? To good deals on domains in 2016!

Register a domain under one of these TLDs?:

.tld

Today is a colorful day indeed. Seven new gTLDs are entering GoLive, including one of the most domain-hack friendly TLDs off all time: .red.

General Availability will start 17 April 2014 at 16:00:00 UTC (09:00:00 am PST).

You can already submit orders for these extensions. We'll submit them to the Registry at the earliest possible moment, in the order they are received.

Here's the list of prices for a one-year registration at A rates:

Note that the IDN .移动 only accepts Chinese characters.

There was no Landrush phase for any of these extensions. That means that other than the handful of Sunrise registrations already done by TMCH trademark holders, it's going to be a total free-for-all.

As usual, once a new extension hits GoLive, it's first-come, first-served.

Sometimes we have to let go a little bit of the #no_bullshit mantra. And we know that not all our customers are humble developers, working for modest companies. That's why we're happy to diversify our offering and introduce the TLD that approximately .1% of you will be proud to brag about: .RICH.

This "new and exclusive domain extension and status symbol," along with three other, humbler, new gTLDs, is entering Sunrise at Gandi today. During Sunrise, you can either register domains (if you hold a trademark registered with TMCH) or you can pre-register for the upcoming Landrush and GoLive phases in order to be the first in line.

  • .BLUE will be added to the Gandi palette, joining the .RED and .PINK extensions that became available earlier this week.
  • .移动 (.mobile in Chinese) is intended for those who want to target the mobile market in Asia.
  • .ONL could conceivably be considered an abbreviation for "online" and is also a Spanish acronym for nonprofit organizations, Organizaciones No Lucrativas, and...
  • .RICH, as you'll see below, is pretty self-explanatory, but in case it wasn't clear, it's for rich people and their needs.

Here are the Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive prices at A rates, as well as a link to the respective TLD price pages:

  • .BLUE $40.54 / [no Landrush] /$16.31
  • .移动 $40.54 / [no Landrush] / $16.31
  • .ONL: $119.63 / $169.62 / $16.31
  • .RICH: $1,864.61 / [no Landrush] / $1,769.61 (!!!)

We can't help but share this gem, taken directly from the .RICH registry's website:

".RICH is the new and exclusive domain extension and status symbol on the internet for an elite circle of well-heeled personalities from the worlds of industry, art, fashion, sports and entertainment. From 2014, all these, along with selected providers of top-quality services, luxury and lifestyle brands will be able to hit the scene in the exclusively protected .RICH namespace - guaranteeing impressive exposure for their lifestyle in the spotlight!"

So join the Zuckerbergs, the Bill Gates, and other awesomely great people of the world, and get your .RICH today!
