As you may know, SWITCH, the Registry in charge of the .CH TLD, is ending its activities as a registrar at the end of the first 2015 trimester.

All holders of a .CH domain name will need to have chosen a new registrar by then.

Whether you're already a Gandi customer or just checking out your options, we've prepared an offer we hope you'll find appealing:

For those who have already chosen Gandi, we're lowering our prices! Renewals have dropped from $23.00 to $16.64. New registrations now cost $13.00 (previously $18.00) and transfers are free of charge. (Note that transfers do not alter the expiration date nor the DNS of the domain.)

To sweeten the deal even more, we're offering a promo code for 30% off your first renewal for all .CH domains transferred to Gandi before the end of the year, whether you're coming from SWITCH or another registrar. The promo code will appear in your account within 7 days of the transfer and will allow you to renew your domain for $11.64 instead of $16.64 until January 2015.

Still not sure we're the registrar for you? Check out all the features that come free with each domain at Gandi!

Ready to make the switch? Transferring your .CH to Gandi is simple and fast.

First, you just need to get your domain's transfer authorization code.

Once you've done that, you just need to enter the list of domains in the domain transfer form and follow the steps!


Starting today, you can register a .cat for two years for the price of a one-year registration, which at A rates will cost you $13.00.

The promo is valid until the end of 2014.

Note: anyone can register a .CAT, but you must publish a website in the Catalan language within 6 months of registering the domain name. For more info, see the .cat info page.

The west coast always comes first, which is why Los Angeles has had .la for a very long time. But now the East Coast is catching up, with .nyc!

There are, of course, a few obvious businesses that should definitely focus on getting a .nyc. Bagel makers, pizza joints, and the odd deli now have a unique opportunity to remind everybody who has the best stuff in the Big Apple.

.NYC is reserved to individuals, organizations and businesses having an address in one of the five boroughs of New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island), and it's entering GoLive today, Wednesday 8 October, 2014.

.nyc will cost $38.34 for a one-year registration at A rates.

The .nz namespace, previously restricted to third-level domains such as those ending in .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz, .ac.nz, etc, is being opened up to registrations of second-level .nz domains.

Holders of a third-level .nz domain name (e.g. a domain ending with .co.nz, .net.nz or .org.nz) have a Preferential Registration Eligibility (PRE), meaning you might be able to register the corresponding .nz domain name before anyone else. See below for details.

If there are no preexisting restrictions on a second level domain:

Names without corresponding co.nz, .net.nz or .org.nz names will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Holders of a third-level .nz domain name:

Depending on when your .nz domain name was registered, and if there are any other examples of your name in the .nz domain space, you'll be further classified as having either:

  • Preferential Registration or Reservation (PRR), which makes you eligible to register or reserve the shorter version of your domain name. This must be done within six months of the GoLive date. Reserving a domain name has no cost.
  • Conflicted status, which means your name has been registered in at least two second levels and so its registration at the second level needs to go through a conflict process. An example of this is one Registrant having example.org.nz and another, different Registrant having example.ac.nz

For the moment, domains with such restrictions will appear as "not available" on our website, as we have not yet implemented the ability to register them. We're working on it and this option should be available soon (note, as mentioned above, that the domain will be reserved to you for six months).

You can check if priority restrictions exist on a given domain using the Registry's online tool at anyname.nz.

.nz domains will cost $24.00 for a one-year registration. For more information, see the Registry's FAQ.
