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.
Today, .green is entering the Landrush phase. New one-year registrations will cost $179.13 at A rates until Landrush ends on March 14, 2015 at 5:00 a.m. PDT (12:00 p.m. UTC).
The GoLive phase will begin March 24 at 5:00 a.m. PDT (12:00 p.m. UTC); thereafter, one-year registrations will cost $95.30.
Note: You can secure a Landrush registration now, or pre-register for GoLive; if you pre-register, we'll submit the order on your behalf at the earliest possible moment, in the order they are received. As always, if the registration is not successful, we will automatically refund your prepaid account (and will refund to your external funding source upon request).
If you want to be absolutely sure to get your desired domain, you can register it during Landrush at the higher price (see above).
A great San Franciscan once said: “I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you gotta give em hope.”
Today, we're proud to share a step forward with our friends in the diverse communities represented by a new TLD (a place to put your hope, if you will): .LGBT.
Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, an ally--or a business targeting them--.lgbt will be what you make of it. We hope to see this new online space flourish as a new and powerful way for people to connect. We're proud to offer domain names in this extension and help create a safe place online to support, discuss, promote and celebrate LGBTQ interests, causes and communities.
That being said, the introduction of .lgbt, managed by the Afilias registry, has not been without controversy. We'll be following this story as it plays out and counting on your feedback to guide us.
The GoLive price for a one-year registration of a .lgbt domain is $57.25 at A rates.
Two more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase on Wednesday, February 11 at 8 a.m. PST (3 p.m. UTC). We haven't decided whether it's more fit for a logistics company, for take-out food or for a maternity ward but we are happy to deliver .delivery. And we're pumped to offer a jolt of .energy to the domain name registration world with the GoLive for .energy.
The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Landrush, which ends Wednesday, February 10 at 7:59 a.m. PST (2:59 p.m. UTC) and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:
The Landrush phase for 1- and 2-letter .FR domains will allow anyone who meets the registry's eligibility requirements for .FR domains to register available domains, though at a higher price. h The Landrush is divided into 4 weekly periods, each one with a lower price (prices below are excluding VAT):
from 16/02, 15:00 to 23/02: €18,300 for one year from 23/02, 12:00 to 02/03: €12,200 for one year from 02/03, 12:00 to 09/03: €6,950 for one year from 09/03, 12:00 to 17/03: €190 for one year
The renewal of these domains will be at the normal .FR renewal rate (ex. €12 for one year under A rates). There will not be any pre-reservation for a given date, and in the event that the domain was taken before yours, we will refund your order in full.
If you have followed recent financial news, you have certainly noticed the historic high of the US Dollar versus the Euro.
The direct implication of this high for a European company that purchases goods in US Dollars is that there is an increase in costs. The consequence of this is that we are losing money in certain price rates.
And as our business model is to not use domains as a loss leader to push other products, we must revise our prices on the extensions in question in order to be able to continue to bring you the best possible quality of service.
Despite this, we will continue to allow you to benefit from the promotions that have been negotiated with the registries, notably with a major operation coming soon, and if the Euro/Dollar trend turns around and stabilises, we will readjust our prices downward.
Here is, in alphabetical order, the 39 extensions (out of 562) impacted by this increase, with the amount of the increase noted next to it:
Two more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase: .casa and .work. We invite you to make yourself at home with .casa. As they say, mi .casa es su.casa. Or if you're feeling more like being productive, feel free to get to .work with the new .work gTLD.
The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:
Starting February 1, we are pleased to be offering a promotion on .cm domains, the official extension of the country of Cameroon. Domain registrations under this TLD will be discounted from the usual $94.00 to a drastically discounted price of $24.00 (at A rates), whereas renewals will be only $50.00 (usually $94). This deal only lasts until March 31, so if you want to take advantage of these low prices, now's the time!
