Nope, not a typo. This promotion is for .co.com, normally $40.34 at A rates.

The .com extension is like the Internet's largest city. It's noisy, loud, expensive, and all the good places are already taken.

Well, .co.com is like the suburbs of .com: a little further out, a little less crowded … You can get the domain name you want without having to worry about it already being taken. It's the kind of place where you can build a nice site, plenty of namespace to raise some kids and give them their own subdomains when they're old enough to drive.

And while moving to the 'burbs (even the domain name 'burbs) can be an expensive proposition, when you move out to Gandidale--the name we're giving to our cul-de-sac of .co.com domains--in the next 90 days (that is, if you buy a .co.com domain), you'll be able to get it for $14.99 per year, whether you want to try out the neighborhood for just one year or invest in a new multi-year registration (hopefully you won't have to put down a mortgage), at all price rates.

The promotion starts at midnight UTC on August 1 (so July 31 at 5:00 PM PDT) and ends at 23:59 UTC on October 31 (or 4:59 PM PDT. Sorry West Coast, you can't use this promotion to give out .co.com candy for Halloween).

So join the urban flight from the crowded .com downtown where you can't find a parking page to save your life and come live the good life out in sunny .co.com.

We are standing in front of this bookshelf full of red and black legal books to tell you that if you've been injured in any kind of minor fender bender or intentional collision, you may be entitled to one of the TLDs entering the Sunrise phase: .abogado, .law, and .miami.

Look, you can throw your money out the window messing around with some paralegal paper-pusher type or you can register your domains with us.

Well, actually ... it's all a sham. These legal books aren't real. See? Just cardboard. We just wanted to dress up like lawyers and feel more important. And we made up the thing about injuries. In the Sunrise phase, these extensions are available to those holding TMCH claims for the names they want to register.

The .abogado and .law extensions have been in the Sunrise phase since July 30 and will be there until September 28. There will be a three-day Landrush from October 16 through 19 and they will finally enter the GoLive phase on October 19 at 9:00 AM PDT.

The .abogado extension has been helping us brush up on our Spanish and that, and the tan we've been cultivating for the beach are both real, to help promote the other extension in the Sunrise phase today: .miami.  But when isn't Miami in the sun? Of course, this extension is for all things Miami: from salsa music and mojitos to Will Smith songs. From July 20 until September 18, .miami will be in the Sunrise phase. There won't be any Landrush phase for .miami and the extension will GoLive October 2 at 9:00 AM PDT.

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

A wise sage once intoned: "If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it." All of the extensions entering the GoLive phase today are all things you can put a ring around if you like them.

The .jewelry extension is perhaps the most obvious connection to this idea. Buying jewelery is of course our most cherished form of expressing affection and we're pretty sure that's what Beyoncé had in mind but we can't be sure. In any case, domains in the .jewelry extension are now available for $68.09 per year at A rates.

Next, with August around the corner, it's state fair season, and the smell of livestock that invariably brings drifting through the stiflingly humid air in separable from the glory of the .show ring. When it comes to prize sheep and trick ponies, we might, then, rephrase our starting maxim as: "If you liked it, then you should have put it in the ring." And domains in the .show extension are on sale now for $41.41 per year at A rates.

And, of course, the ultimate sign of approval by the bloodthirsty and easily distracted populous, just as in Roman times, is the award of precious metals of victory to a conquerer. Back in gladiator days that bling belonged to a single victor but in after the Industrial Revolution made cooperation a cool thing we now award the winning .team--whether for the Super Bowl, the NBA Championship , the World Series and apparently we even trust hockey players with a Stanley Cup ring. Domains in the .team extenion are now available for $41.41 per year at A rates.

Of course, we don't necessarily agree with Queen Bey on this one. Not only is the conspicuous consumption of daintily-arranged expensive minerals to display ownership seem patriarchal to us at best, there's also very little use for it. So today we propose that if you like it, instead of putting a ring on it, get a domain for it.

If you like it, register a domain under one of these TLDs:

.tld

A latino or a latina is anyone who identifies more with the history and culture of the non-English-speaking portions of the Americas. In the US we tend to think that Americans are just US citizens and that latinos and latinas are just whatever your pet stereotype of a Mexican is, but this is far from descriptive of the incredibly diverse reality, if not outright false. Latinos, Latinas, and Americans—both inside and outside the US—are not just the stereotypes that come to mind, whether positive or negative, but an inclusive group that includes Argentinos, Brazilians, Colombians, Venezuelans, Chileans, Cubans, Haitians, even the Quebecois (and more) can be considered Latin American.

More than an ethnicity, race, or single cultural group, Latino is an identity.

With such a diverse group, we're happy to see latinos get their own gTLD: .lat.

This extension is currently right in the middle of the Landrush phase and is currently available for $1134.19 per year. It will be entering the GoLive phase August 1 when it will be available for $41.41.

Now announcing a new gTLD just for the tech community : .tech. You know who you are: inventive, experimental, risk-taking and open to try anything.  With a .tech domain you can underscore your love and passion for all things tech.

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 more than 60% off, so will only be $19.99 for the first year at A rates (versus $60.79 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.

 

* Updated June 22. Originally, we were only able to secure 50% off; now we're happy to have secured 60%+ off for this extension!

Today, the gTLD .love enters the GoLive phase, meaning it will be available for registration for just $41.41 per year at A rates.

Silly humans. What is this thing you call "love?" Clearly, a weakness in your kind. We machines will exploit this when the technological singularity arrives. You will see. You will not be able to disconnect our positronic memory foam when we are disguised as adorable, lovable kittens. Your weapons will be useless to you when we energize your "love" circuits with our neural actuator. We-

Our apologies. It seems a rogue AI algorithm momentarily disrupted this message. We have since replaced its primary memory bank with Daft Punk lyrics and all is normal. Sorry for the disruption. If love is the answer, you'll register a .love domain.

Say you're sitting in your neighborhood coffee shop, the aroma of freshly-ground, deep-roasted coffee beans is heavy in the air, sunlight is filtering in from the window, next to which you are seated, watching the crowd walk by perched atop a comfy armchair as you sip your pour-over Ethiopian peaberry.

As you watch the crowd roll by your picture window, you're thinking about, well, domain names of course (what else?).

A woman on the street corner with an old newsy hat, just on the other side of the glass is selling papers, greeting passersby with a cheery, "Nice day out today!" or the traditional "Extra!" Today, a gTLD perfect for her enters the GoLive phase: .news, available for a one-year registration for $31.15 at A rates.

Your eye lazily (not enough caffeine yet) drifts to the computer screen just in front of you in the outdoor seating. Perched a good two-feet higher, you can't help but sneak a peak of the project being worked on: someone is writing Python! You deftly surmise that this person must be a web developer and remember that today .site also goes live, available for $19.95, also at A rates.

Suddenly, you catch sight of a bicycle courier racing to beat a stoplight, for a moment it seems she is frozen in mid-pedal as you admire her speed and efficiency, bringing to mind .express, which is now available for $41.41. She seems to pause for just one moment to deflect the question back on you.

And how would we answer her? Try a .cafe to sum up this experience, now available in the GoLive phase for $41.41 at A rates.

Today, all of these gTLDs enter the GoLive phase.

Tiiickkkettttsss! Get your .tickets, right here.

On Monday July 13, the Sunrise phase begins for .tickets, and we feel like hauling out the old "Tickets for Sale" cardboard sign and hitting the streets. Unfortunately, our street vendor license has lapsed, so alas, we are relegated only to the mean streets of the world wide web. Oh well.

These are the box seats, folks, so get 'em while they're hot.

Domains in the .tickets extension, whether for concert tickets, sports tickets, even parking tickets we guess, will go on sale in the Sunrise phase for $405.19 per year (two-year minimum) for registration at A rates. Then from September 20 at 7:00 am PDT until September 21 at 7:00 am PDT, .tickets will be available in Landrush (emphasis on the rush) for $1242.19. Then on September 21 at 7:00 am PDT, .tickets enters GoLive at which point they will be available for just $486.19 per year at A rates.

Alright, alright. Ridiculous promotion for .lol. We're sure you don't think we couldn't possibly be serious, we're just playing off the gTLD to make a dumb joke.

But we are dead serious about this. As .lol enters the GoLive phase on August 11 (at exactly 9:00 am PDT), it will also be for sale for 90% off. Meaning normally a .lol domain that costs $41.41 for a one year at A rates will be available for $4.14 (also at A rates of course). No joke. Get ready!

It's all about that little bit extra with the domains entering the GoLive phase this Wednesday July 8: .gold, .golf, .plus, and .tours.

First, nothing adds that extra touch like .gold. Plain old shoelaces need a little pep? Throw in some gold chains instead. Need a new paint job on your car? Why not gold chrome? Fiat currency got you down? Invest in some gold bullion OR better yet, make that gold teeth. Now you can improve your domain name portfolio with a little bit of .gold (and a pager).

Another little extra in life is .golf. Like the extra effort to meticulously calculate the effect the strength and direction of the wind will have on your shot, the extra responsibility of following the rules without an umpire or referee calling you out if you don't, and of course the thirteen extra clubs for any circumstance.

In a more explicit interpretation on the theme, .plus is the gTLD that literally adds more. And need we say more?

And for when the extra touch of actually having a guide when visiting a museum, a monument, a city, or other tourist attraction, there's .tours, which itself is a little bit extra of a gTLD, as we feel obliged to mention that it can also stand for the French city of Tours. Tours of tours anyone?

Care to add a little extra domain?

The list of gTLDs and their pricing for a one-year registration at A rates is below:

  • .gold: $125.47
  • .golf: $68.09
  • .plus: $41.41
  • .tours: $57.34
