A handful of new gTLDs are entering the Sunrise phase today, the first of which brings us back to high school gym class: .team is entering the Sunrise phase at $162.19 for a one-year registration at A rates, and it reminds us of always being picked last second-to-last when we picked teams for dodgeball.

Next up, you can finally put up that site for your unique brand of terrarium earrings and necklaces with your very own .jewelry domain, available in Sunrise at for $176.23 a one-year registration at A rates.

And finally, speaking of flashy things that catch our attention with superficial glimmering, .show also enters the Sunrise phase today and you can get your own for one year at A rates for just $162.19.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Sunrise, Landrush and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

  • .team: $162.19 | $183.79 | $41.41
  • .jewelry: $176.23 | $197.83 | $68.09
  • .show: $162.19 | $183.79 | $41.41

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.

We live in a world of design. It saturates our daily existence and influences us in subtle ways, sometimes subconsciously. Consider how much thought has been put into your experience just walking down the street! The width of the sidewalk and the road was a design choice, the traffic control systems were designed, the names and logos of the stores and businesses you pass are designed and the products being sold or worked on inside are carefully designed.

The clothes on the people who walk past you were made by fashion designers. Take out your smartphone, a product of as much design as engineering, and use an app, also designed, to find the nearest art supply store where you can buy the tools to draft your own design. Now that's meta.

We'll have you know that we're sober enough to resist the urge to rant right here about all the BAD DESIGN in the world. If you ever meet us in real life, on the other hand... man oh man, do we ever have thoughts to share on that topic.

Anyway, .design has entered the GoLive phase. A one-year registration of a domain under this extension will cost $62.36 at A rates.

We know how this can spun, and we only share this with those we can trust but friends, we have seen the future. It is a high-contrast place of bright, higher-than-life definition glowing interactive billboards as big as a skyscraper and numerous darkly-lit alley spaces where you have to step over the occasional straggling Vertigo junkies.

But despite its bleakness, we have also seen the light, and friends, it's a light we know you will want to see too:

In the future, .tech domains will be available for registration!

Here's how it will happen:

First, there will be a Sunrise phase, which will begin next Monday, May 25 at 9:00 AM PDT and will last until July 24. During this phase, a one-year registration of a .tech at A rates will cost $307.99.

Next, comes the Landrush phase, which will fall between August 2 and August 5, during which time a .tech will run you $199.99.

Finally, on Wednesday August 5 at 9:00 AM PDT, we will enter a new era as .tech enters the GoLive phase and, here's the most startling prediction of all: when it enters GoLive, .tech will be available at 50% off, so will only be $29.39 for the first year at A rates (versus $58.78 normally) until October 5.

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.

For today's GoLive, to activate your creativity we've composed a non-proprietary phrasal "ad lib" template game. You fill in the blanks. Here goes:

Five new (adjective) gTLDs are (-ing verb) the GoLive phase.

First, .bingo isn't just the (noun) before the meat raffle. There's all kinds of (adjective) .bingo domains you could register: make .bingo for televised (adjective) debates like (political party).bingo, .bingo for trashy (genre) films like (adjective)-film.bingo, or .bingo for farmers' dogs. Really, you don't have to stick with the (adjective) B12, I21, N35, G50, and O75 thing.

Next, .chat is also more flexible than it seems. Bring back (elected official)'s legendary (noun)side chats in the Internet age or advertise your (commodity) store in (adjective) Chats, California. Did you know the (language) word for cat is also chat?

Then, .one is the loneliest gTLD entering the GoLive phase today, but we're (adverb) sure you can keep it company. After all, it only takes one (singular noun) to (verb) a (noun)! Take (adjective).one, for example.

Do things (adjective) style with a .style domain, celebrate the (adjective) style of music or the literary style of (author).

Finally, our (superlative adjective) new gTLD: .tennis. With tennis shoes and tennis (plural noun) and tennis (sportswear), .tennis offers (adjective) possibilities.

Well, that's our non-proprietary phrasal template game.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

  • .bingo: $63.02
  • .chat: $38.33
  • .one: $12.69
  • .style: $38.33
  • .tennis: $63.02

Your mother always told you that you'd never make a living on the stage and your father told you it wasn't "real" work (whatever that's supposed to mean) and maybe when you're agonizing in a roach-filled studio in Manhattan it sure doesn't feel like you'll ever really make it, not like you wanted, but when you feel the heat of that spotlight and the pattering of the applause, not matter how paltry and lackluster, you know that no matter what, you were always meant to be up there on those boards.

If you're one of those who know your place is on that stage, no matter how bad the tips or crummy the gig, we have good new for you: today, Friday May 15, we are promoting .actor, .band, .dance, and .rocks (normally $30.41, $28.84, $18.33 and $15.54, respectively).

Right now, you can register a new domain under one of these extensions for just $5.00!

This promo is valid until July 31, 2015.

Three new gTLDs are available for great prices until Monday July 27*.

Yes, it's true! You can get an incredible deal on one-year registrations of these new gTLDs at A rates, normally priced at $38.29 ($38.30 for .webcam):

Why not get your .webcam site online? Plan for summer events with your own .party domains?

Or show the world your new .science project? It's all possible now!

* It seems like a high ceiling, but these promotions are limited to 500,000 per extension total (whether through Gandi or not), so once that limit is reached, we won't be able to offer the promotion. In other words: While supplies last.

We're partnering with the .XYZ registry to benefit the excellent Read the Docs project. \o/

This month's featured project is ReadTheDocs, an open source project which hosts documentation (as well as allowing anyone to host their own), making it fully searchable and easy to find.

As in the past, the Registry is letting us have a great promo on all 1-year .XYZ domain creations, and we'll be joining forces with them to donate $1 for each new .XYZ registration to one of our favorite projects. Previous featured projects included Fight For the Future, FreeBSD, or Creative Commons, EFF and OpenHatch.

Until the end of May, new .XYZ domains can be registered at only $2.50 instead of the usual $13.63 excl. VAT.

(On a related note, Write the Docs North America is happening on May 17-19, 2015 in Portland, Oregon, and is sure to be an amazing event. You can also donate to RTD directly at their website.)

This promo is valid through May 31, 2015.

Edit: This promo ends May 31, not June 30 as previously indicated.


We're happy to present a new promo for 40% off on the ever-popular .me. From now until the end of 2015, you can register your .me domain at $14.40 instead of the usual $24 at A rates (new one-year registrations only).

As you surely know, .FR finally switched to multi-year registration on March 30th.

For those of you that are unaware, before that date, a .FR domain could only be registered for one year at a time. Currently, like the large majority of extensions, a .FR domain can be registered for up to 10 years.

In order to celebrate this very good news, during the entire month of May, we are providing you with a promo of .FR domains for 5 years or more, with a yearly price of €9 excl. VAT versus the usual €12 under A rates. For a .FR domain registered for 10 years, for example, this would come to €90 instead of €120 excl. VAT. Note that this promo is only valid for A and B rates.

And for those that already have their .FR domain, if you want to renew it for 5 or more years, you can use the promo code FR5PLUS which will give you a 10% discount on the total price.

Of course these two promos are ALSO valid for the domains of the French overseas departments and territories: .RE (Reunion Island), .YT (Mayotte), .WF (Wallis and Futuna), .TF (French Southern and Antarctic Lands) et .PM (Saint Pierre and Miquelon).
