In a way, the .NYC extension resembles the city it represents: attractive, but only welcoming if you meet its standards. In effect, this new geographic TLD is only available under certain conditions.
The Sunrise period, as usual, will only be available to those with TMCH-registered trademarks; in this case, you must also have a verifiable address in New York city. P.O. boxes don't count - you need a real street address in the city that never sleeps.
The Sunrise will last until June 20th 2014. The price of a one-year registration during Sunrise is $66.84.
A special, secondary Sunrise phase will begin a few days later; from 25 June to 31 July, the extension will be available only to city government services.
The Landrush phase will take place from August 4th to October 3rd. During this time, registration will cost $95.34 and will be open to anyone with a valid address in the city.
General Availability will begin October 8th 2014, after which the price of a one-year registration will be $38.34.
During April and May 2014, you can register a new .CO for one year for half price: $16.50 instead of the regular $33.00 at A rates.
The timing is perfect for this promo: .CO, technically the ccTLD of Colombia, is becoming increasingly popular in the tech industry as a generic extension. Google has even confirmed it will consider it as a GccTLD for the purposes of indexing and SEO [Wikipedia].
.CO domains are available to all, with no residency restrictions. For more information or to register a domain, see the .co TLD info page.
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.
