It's a surprise that should delight fans of the Orient, cryptocurrencies and domain hacks in general: this month,through June 30th, the Indian registry is proposing half-price creations of up to five years.
This promo applies to all rate scales and includes the various .*.IN sub-TLDs offered by Gandi. In other words, domains under any of the following extensions will cost you only $7.75 (usually $15.50) through June 30th.
.co.in (as in money)
It's worth noting that whois privacy, including proxy registration, is strictly forbidden by the .IN registry, regardless of your handle type. For more details, see INRegistry's Registrant TOC (pdf).
These are two highly anticipated extensions in the world of domains! With more than 3000 pre-reservations (at Gandi), you all are big fans of skin, apparently.
As of today, Tuesday, 25 February at 8am PST, .SEXY and .TATTOO are available for registration by anyone at regular rates.
A simple Google search with the right keywords makes it abundantly clear that there are many reasons to want a .sexy. At A rates, your titillating .sexy domain is only $21.70 away.
Why not declare your love for your beau or belle with theirfirstname.sexy and keep the flame going for at least the next 12 months*?
As far as .tattoo goes, we're looking at you, ink people. You know who you are. Whether you're a tattoo professional, Ötzi the Iceman, or simply someone with an appreciation for dermatological art, .tattoo represents a unique opportunity to showcase your work, your passion, or your gift to the anthropologists of the future.
.tattoo is open to all as of today, at a price of $32.44 at A rates.
* Reciprocal affection not guaranteed. We'll always love you, though.
You can already submit an order to register any of the seven new gTLDs above, and we'll automatically place it on your behalf when General Availability begins next week (select "Golive" from the dropdown menu). As always, we'll refund you if the domain is no longer availabile by the time the GA phase begins.
Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to go register all the things.
The registry managing .SX, the official TLD of Sint Maarten (and unofficially the de facto sexy TLD, at least until .sex becomes available) is offering an exceptional discount of 50% for all new .SX registrations from 25 September 2013 to 30 March 2014.
We are happy to announce a drop in prices for .PT domains of $3, effective immediately, on all rate scales.
The .PT TLD now costs $29.00 (at A rates) instead of its earlier price of $32.
.PT, the national ccTLD of Portugal, has been open to registration by residents of any country since 1 May 2012. Registrants are still required to provide an ID number, but it doesn't have to be a Portugese ID. The first major change is that it's no longer necessary to have a commercial or personal name related to the domain name being registered!
Some additional details:
If you are a "corporate person" (business, association, etc) registered in the European Economic Community, you will have to provide an intra-community VAT number. If your business is located outside Europe, you will need to provide another fiscal identification number.
If you are a Portugese citizen, you will have to provide your Fiscal Code. Otherwise, you'll need to provide your passport number.
