Followers of this page may know we cover a lot of new gTLD releases. Of course, the nTLD program is great, it opens up a lot of creative possibilities for domain names that simply wouldn't exist otherwise.

But every so often, there's that rare moment when you get something really special: a TLD that exists already, usually a ccTLD, which previously restricted its registrations in some way, opens the doors to the general public.

Such is the case with .fi, the ccTLD for Finland. Historically, .fi domains have only been open to Finnish residents and companies, but as of 3:00 AM PDT on September 5, .fi will bust wide open for anyone and everyone. The .fi TLD has lot of good options, too.

Of course, some of the good ones are already taken : wi.fi (and why.fi), hi.fi (even high.fi), and lo.fi are registered already. But as of this writing there are still a lot of great .fi domains out there: no.fi, exampli.fi com.fi even knights-who-say.fi.

So to lighten the load on anyone who wants to give a .fi domain a shot and to celebrate the new found .fi-dom, starting today, August 29, until September 30, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT, .fi domain creations will be just $13.50 (compare to the normal $19.50 at A rates)*.

That means even while the local presence requirements are still in place you can get a .fi domain for this price. But if you can meet the requirements and you do want to get your .fi domain before it opens to everyone, do it before September 2.

That's because September 2 the .fi domain service will be closing and domain registration will not be active until the new service opens up September 5.

*Prices in USD. For local prices see the .fi price page.

**Update 9/13:

After a bumpy start, .fi registrations are now truly open to all (two-character domains were additionally restricted until September 12). One final note: non-Finnish residents will still need to click the "Modify" link at the Contacts step in the domain registration process in order to indicate that they are not Finnish. This is due to the fact that Finnish registration numbers are still required for Finnish residents to register .fi domains.

Of course, if you run into any additional difficulties or have other questions, feel free to contact our Customer care team and they can help you through the process.


With winter approaching, it's the time of year when our fuzzy little rodent friends the squirrels start to gather nuts. Then, each type of squirrels will .store their nuts differently. Grey squirrels bury their nuts all over the place to hide them from their competitors. Red squirrels put theirs in one big pile.

Kind of like domain names. Some of you like to spread your domain names out and .store them in a bunch of different registrars. Others .store them all in one place.

In honor of the squirrels and the squirrel-like among you, .store (perfect for storage or for buying and selling, of course) is on sale at Gandi for just $7.99 per year at A rates* from August 25 until December 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM PST.

Will you store your .store with us?

It wasn’t so long ago domains used to be .com, .net, .org, .edu, .mil, and .gov. While anyone could register a .com, .org or .net domain, there was always a distinct US-centric flavour (or flavor if you will) to this initial set of generic TLDs.

Especially given that a special set of country-specific TLDs (ccTLDs) were created to be used by individual countries.

Since then, the internet has connected the world in a way it wasn’t before when this initial architecture was laid out and now, with the arrival of the new generic TLDs over the past couple of years as they’ve been delegated by ICANN, true generic TLDs can emerge.

Enter .gdn, a new generic TLD that stands for Global Domain Name, which launched just this past 7 March. And from now until 31 December, you can get a .gdn domain for just  US$1.50* for the first year.

What's your .gdn?

* £1.30, €1.50, or NT$50. See here for local prices.


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.

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:

  • .tech creations are just $3.99 
  • .online are just $3.99 and
  • .site are $1.99.

Every year the holiday gift-giving season starts earlier and earlier. This year, it seems it’s starting already in July. At least as far as Radix Registry domains are concerned.

From July 1 until December 31, 2016, Radix has a little gift for us all: a huge holiday promotion on all eight of their TLDs :

  • .online just $3.99 per year instead of $29.99.
  • .press just $9.99 per year rather than $94.97 normally.
  • .website only $0.99 per year, compared to $30.31.
  • .site $1.99 per year, normally $34.87.
  • .host only just $10.99 per year, ordinarily $124.93.
  • .space $0.99 per year rather than $12.97.
  • .pw $0.89 per year, compared with $15.00 normally.
  • .tech just $3.99 per year, rather than $60.79.

All of which would make perfect stocking stuffers.

You know, it’s not so bad for the holidays to start this early when you’re one of the ones getting the gifts.

*UPDATED JULY 1 :

We are starting off the year summer right, with a virtual explosion of colorful extensions (and then some) on promotion from now until June 30 December 31, all of them 50% off.

.pink on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).

Going one further with diversity, we are also offering deals on

and

.shiksha, which is for the culture of writing and phonetics of one of six forms of Sanskrit Hindu. Domains in this extension will be available for $8.16 per year (instead of $16.31).

Next, representing at least the black and the red:

.poker is on sale for $28.61 per year (instead of $57.22).

Then there are a couple of TLDs on sale which don't really have a direct relationship to colors and diversity, but are for areas we would certainly hope are diverse:

.pro for professionals is on sale for $10.00 per year (instead of $20.00).
.info for information of course is on sale for $4.97 per year (instead of $9.93).

Finally, rounding out the list are two TLDs that are focused on mobile technology:

.mobi for $9.00 per year instead of the usual $18.00.
.移动 (Chinese for "mobile", punycode .xn-6frz82g) for $8.16 per year rather than the usual $16.31.

 

*And now also: .promo domains are $9.70 per year instead of the usual $19.40.

 

So, how about one last champagne toast can of beer? To good deals on domains in 2016!

We live in a time when an ever-growing proportion of the population carries devices around in its collective pockets capable of capturing and transmitting audio and visual information with a stunning degree of clarity with few barriers to access.

This opens the world to the minutiae of our mundane lives, interesting thoughts or information, and even footage that is shocking or documents events of interest that may not make it through the editorial filters of the mainstream media, for better or for worse.

Protests in Tahrir Square were live-streamed, innumerable political rallies this campaign season were too and so was the sit-in by House Democrats for gun control this month. It’s clear, though, that the power of streaming is not yet fully realized.

So given the raw, untapped power of streaming, it’s exciting news that .stream will enter the GoLive phase on June 28, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT. The normal price per year at A rates for .stream domains will be $38.31 but from now until December 31, 2016 you can register a .stream domain (or pre-register before it enters GoLive) for just $2.00 per year.

What will you .stream?

  • Number 10: Monday June 20 marks the five-year anniversary of when ICANN announced that they would begin accepting applications for new gTLDs within the year, including .top.
  • Number 9: Your .top domain doesn't have to expire in the next 10 days for you to renew it.
  • Number 8: Registration of .top domains has surpassed 2.5 million, making it the number two most registered new gTLD.
  • Number 7: This also makes it the top (no pun intended, really) most registered new gTLD based outside of the US
  • Number 6: .top is one of four new gTLDs put on record with Chinese MIIT to build a website with
  • Number 5: It’s easy to type. c, o and m are about as far apart on the keyboard as possible. t, o and p, though? All in the same row. You could type it one-handed.
  • Number 4: .top is international. Registrations span 230 countries.
  • Number 3: Over 30 words in the English language end in -top. And that’s not counting innumerable phrases (careful for premium domains, though).
  • Number 2: If you’re on top, and you like being on top, you should stay on top and keep your .top domain. You just should.

and …

  • Number 1: The number one reason to renew a .top domain before July 1 is because .top renewals are on promotion for ten days only (one day for each of the reasons on this list): from June 20 to June 30, 2016.

Domains in this extension can be renewed for just $6.26 per year (they’re normally $12.52 at A rates). So that’s a full half-off.

It’s easy to stay on .top if you can get half-off.


The spirits (well, mostly just the TLD release calendar) predict many good things coming your way, dear Gandiens, many things.

So what’s in store this month? Well, .store for one, is entering the GoLive phase on June 14, 2016 at 9:00 AM PDT.

But wait, there’s more in store for .store! From now until August 14, 2016 at 4:59 PM PDT, .store domains will be on sale for just $14.99 per year when you buy it in the GoLive phase. Normally, the GoLive price for .store will be $76.95 per year, so that’s 80% off, right off the bat.

With a promo that good, we predict that you will find the .store of your dreams this summer.
