There's finally a TLD for glam rockers, stage actors, TV personalities, mimes, and of course, for any of you wanting just to highlight one or several of your facial features: .makeup is now entering the Sunrise phase.
In this phase, lasting from September 22 until that most makeup-friendly date October 31, .makeup domains will be available for $550.66 per year* to TMCH claims holders.
But that doesn't mean you can't pre-register your .makeup domain in either the Landrush or GoLive phases. The Landrush phase will last from November 1 through November 7. Domains registered in Landrush will sell for $XXX.XX per year* and then on November 8, .makeup enters the GoLive phase, when domains will be sold for $250.61 per year* at A rates.
If your bank account failed a Strength Check during the Sunrise or Landrush phases of the release of .games, now you can try again in the GoLive phase, starting September 21, 2016 at 10:00 AM PDT. That is to say, .games domains are now open to even the lowest-level orc for just $23.15 per year (at A rates)*.
You don't have to roll a D20 but there is one check you do have to do: see if your .games domain is available.
Traditionally, the grand opening of a new shop involves a big red banner, one of those flailing-arm tube guys, and a good old-fashioned opening day sale.
Well, one unfortunate casualty of online commerce is the ribbon and the flailing arm guy just don't have the same impact. But you don't need a brick-and-mortar to do an opening day sale. So when .shop enters the GoLive phase on September 26, 2016 at 8:00 AM PDT, you can get a domain in this extension for just $25.00* for the first year at A rates. Normally, .shop domains will go for $45.95* in A rates, so that's more than 45% off.
Even though .shop is currently in the Sunrise phase (.shop domains go for $1050.74*per year apiece in Sunrise), you can still submit your registration for a .shop domain in the GoLive phase now and once the GoLive phase begins, we'll send the order to the registry. That's the upside of not having a physical shop where you can buy your .shop: getting in line early doesn't mean camping out overnight on the sidewalk.
This promotion is good for any .shop registrations submitted for GoLive from now until December 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM PST (or midnight UTC). So come on down to Gandi for the .shop opening day sale.
Otherwise, for our purposes now, suffice it to say that registries set premium prices for particular high-demand domain names and starting September 1, 2016 until March 31, 2017 at 5:00 PM PDT, Radix is offering a special deal on a few Premium domains in their popular TLDs .online, .press, .store, .tech and .website.
We've selected just a sampling* of the kind of deals you can find during this special promotional period:
special.website, for that special site in your life: $123.75 instead of $250.00**
concerts.online (why watch live when you can watch online?) for $238.43 instead of $500.00**
adsl.online, because ADSL is *always* online, for $447.29 instead of $1000.00**
film.store, to sell physical film stock in a brick-and-mortar for $1015.45 instead of $2500.00**
people.tech, tech with that people touch for $3894.00 instead of $10,000.00**
September is a big month for the Catalonian capital Barcelona. First, on September 11, Barcelona commemorates the fall of Barcelona and defeat of Catalunya to Felipe V in the War of Spanish Succession with La Diada. It's not necessarily a festive celebration, but it's considered Catalunya's national day.
Later in the month, though, Barcelona celebrates its patron saint, La Mare de Déu de la Mercè, for a whole week with the la Mercè. Each day, there's a parade, including giant papier mâché figures. Another tradition, declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, is the castells. Basically, competitive human tower-building.
Whether you want to commemorate La Diada or celebrate la Mercè or build a castell out of domain names even (not sure how that would work, though), we're showing love for Barcelona this fall by putting .barcelona domains on sale for $25.00 per year (normally $85.46 at A rates)*starting September 1 until October 31, 2016 at 5:00 PM PST.
If emblematic form of lethargy of the cable TV era was channel surfing, the equivalent for the Internet age is the link hole.
If you've ever started by looking up something totally normal, like the caffeine molecule (because you're tired and you want coffee), and eventually you end up reading about the original formula for Tang, then you know how it is.
The internet works in mysterious ways.
And now, from September 1 until November 30, 2016 (at 4:00 PM PST), you can celebrate these mysterious ways with a .link domain at just $4.50* for the first year.

There's a big difference between a picture and a photo. Any teenager with a smartphone can take a picture but a photo is a work of art. In other words, you at least have to have an Instagram account.
And if photography is your preferred medium (and you're ready to evolve beyond the aforementioned Instagram account), take all of those carefully-framed shots of sunsets, beaches, weddings and vacations from this summer and put them on a .photo domain for just $5.00* for the first year from September 1 until November 30, 2016 (at 4:00 PM PST).

The world wide web may have just turned 25 but .global, the truly worldwide TLD, is just turning two.
Add another candle to the cake and another .global domain to your TLD portfolio (or your first if you don't have one already) from September 1 through September 30, 2016at 5:00 PM PDT because that's when a .global domain will cost just $20.00 per year (instead of the normal $95.34 per year at A rates*).

Rub-A-Dub-Dub, three dubs in the club. And all this month it's half-price .club, bub.
Whether your a butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker, you can appreciate a good .club deal when you see it. This month, from September 1 through September 30, it's half-price .club domains. (No need to set out to sea.)
That means .club domains, normally $13.43 per year will be just $6.72 per year this month.*
