Grab your bag and get your wallet, it’s time to do some .shopping. Especially if you have a TMCH claim because the latest e-commerce oriented TLD, .shopping, is in the Sunrise phase from July 19 through September 17, 2016. Domains bought in the Sunrise phase are now available for $150.60 per year.
But smart shoppers know that for hot-ticket items, it pays to show up early. Well, even though .shopping doesn’t enter the GoLive phase until September 28, 2016, when .shopping domains will be available for $38.35 per year at A rates, there’s still a way of lining up outside the door: pre-register your domain in the GoLive phase (and you don’t even have to pitch a tent). When the GoLive phase begins, we will submit your registration automatically.
Or if you’re worried the .shopping domain you want might fly off the shelf and are willing to pay a higher price to get just the right one, consider pre-registering now (or registering later) in the Landrush phase. This phase only lasts between September 25, 2016 and September 28, 2016 and registrations will go for $170.60 per year at A rates on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you think of the world in terms of TLDs, in the vast ocean of TLDs, it’s the .com’s and .net’s that are the vast continents and get all the attention. But along the .fr coast, between .wales and .bzh lie the Channel Islands: .je and .gg, or Jersey and Guernsey.
Like their real-world counterparts, these island TLDs are perfect for a maritime summer holiday. And all the more so this summer since, in celebration of their one-year anniversary (as TLDs, that is), .je and .gg are on sale from 18 July until 28 August for 50% off to create and 25% off to renew.
That means instead of £50.00 or $75.00 per year, .je and .gg will only be £25.00, and $38.00 per year to create and £37.50 or $56.75 per year to renew.
Just like .auto and .autos, .car and .cars, the plural form of .game—.games—is a totally separate TLD. And as of July 12 at 10:00 AM PDT, it’s entering the Sunrise phase, which will last until September 10, 2016. During the Sunrise phase, owners of a TMCHregistration will be able to purchase their trademark domain name for $300.62 per year.
Then, from September 18 through 22, .games will be in the Landrush phase. During this phase, domains will be available for $162.60 per year.
Finally, on September 21, 2016 at 10:00 AM PDT, .games will enter the GoLive phase at a price of $23.15 per year at A rates.
Remember: if you want to register in the Landrush or GoLive phases, you can pre-register now and we’ll send your order to the registry as soon as .games enters the corresponding phase.
Last week, we announced some great stocking-stuffer promos on the creation of domains from Radix. Among those included were some of their top sellers, .tech, .online and .site.
We’re happy to announce that you don’t need to buy a new .tech, .online or .site domain to get a good deal from now until December 31, 2016. If you already own one of these domains, you can now renew it for half-price until the end of the year.
Which means …
.tech, which is normally $60.79 can be renewed for $28.99 per year
.online, ordinarily $29.99 can be renewed for $24.99 per year, and
.site, normally $34.87 can be renewed for $15.99 per year.
Or if you prefer a new.tech, .online or .site domain:
Funny how all these old-fashioned words find new life online. Who, for example, still has a real, physical inbox on a real physical desk top? When was the last time you used controls located on a real panel? Or looked someone up in a facebook?
How about watched a video on a screen that still used a vacuum tube to project an image? Even though this technology is going the way of the dinosaur, the internet has proliferated with tubes of all kinds.
And we can expect even more to come as .tube enters the GoLive phase July 7, 2016 at 7:00 AM PDT you can buy a .tube domain for your own online video (or blog about riding the London subway system) and in the process help revive this old-fashioned word even more for just $38.35 per year at A rates.
The gTLDs .com and .net, short for “company” and “network”, respectively, are internationally recognized as perhaps the most iconic gTLDs and form the core of the “classic” gTLD set.
While .公司 (.xn--55qx5d, Chinese for “company”) and .网络 (.xn--io0a7i, Chinese for “network”) officially opened a couple of years ago, we were not able to offer them immediately upon their release.
However, that’s now changed and we are happy to announce that these two TLDs are now available to purchase at Gandi.
Now you can buy a .公司 for $50.74 USD per year at A rates or a .网络 for $50.74 USD per year at A rates, or 1585 TWD （w/t tax)for either, whether it’s just to get in on the burgeoning Chinese-language internet or to translate, so to speak, your .com and .net into Chinese.
These extensions come with a few conditions, though. Notably, if you are registering a domain for your company (which would make sense for a .公司), you must send a copy of your organization’s registration certificate. If you’re registering as an individual, you need to send a legal photo ID. In both cases, the documents you provide have to match the information you put on your Gandi handle exactly. So be precise.
For full details on these rules and how to send these documents to us, please see the following pages:
Whether it’s .live in front of a .studio audience or recorded for .video later, from July 1 through September 30, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT, it’s show time. And by that we mean, they're half-off on the first year.
In other words, .live domains (normally $31.15 per year at A rates) will be just $15.57, .studio domains (normally $31.15 per year at A rates) will be only$15.57 and .video domains will be just $14.41 (normally $28.83 per year at A rates).
Exclusivity is a big part of what makes a club a club and .club itself involves a layer of exclusivity: certain highly desirable .club domains have been long locked away in the registry's virtual vaults as reserved domains. If you've eyed these domains from afar, we have good news for you. The .club registry is currently releasing some 12,000 previously reserved domains as premium domains. And there are some great ones still available, like dvd.club ($2000), village.club ($2000) and runner.club ($7500).
But, because you’re part of a great exclusive group yourself (by that we mean Gandiens), we’re giving you an exclusive chance to register any of these 12,000 new premium .club domains. With the following code, get 25% off the premium domain of your choice for the first year:
The code is valid from July 1 to July 31, 2016 (at midnight UTC), and premium domains are in high demand, so don’t delay.
