Popular science articles and cats are a match made in internet heaven.

For example, a study extracting data on 4,435 Americans aged 30-75, from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study found that cat owners showed a 30% lower risk of death from heart attack.

Or, if you prefer, cat purrs, which vibrate at a range of 20-140 Hz, are medically therapeutic, lowering stress, strengthening bones, and decreasing symptoms of Dyspnoea.

The science is still out, but owning a .cat domain might just be as healthful as owning a cat. And now’s the perfect time to test that hypothesis because .cat domains from June 27 through August 31, 2016 at 11:59 PM UTC (that’s 5:00 PM PDT) are $5.00 per year.

Remember: .cat is actually for Catalonia, so if you have a .cat domain, your site has to have at least one page in Catalan, but that doesn’t stop your site from being devoted to cats.

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.

Many TLDs have come to you with a line that didn’t seem true, and until now, you’ve passed them by.

Now it doesn’t wear a diamond ring, or even have a song to sing. All we know is .我爱你 means “I love you.”

That and .我爱你 will be 50% off for the rest of year, that is, until December 31, 2016 at midnight UTC. Which means instead of the usual price of $45.51 per year, new .我爱你 domains will be just $23.00 per year for the rest of the year.

Show some love?

Worldwide, there are now more than 100 million people of Irish descent, and Irish identity continues to stretch across the globe with Irish nationals traveling and living abroad totaling some 3 million persons. The Irish identity is so strong and so broadly-known that it tends to be cheapened by plastic paddys and shamrockery.

That’s where .irish comes in.

The .irish TLD is perfect for individuals in Ireland or the Irish diaspora to own their Irish identity, for Irish businesses to present their Irishness to the world, and of course to bring that community of 100 million together.

That’s why we’re happy to announce that from 1 June 2016 at midnight UTC until 30 June 2016 a minute before midnight UTC, .irish domains are on sale at Gandi for $6.50 per year.

So there’s no better time than now to be .irish online with a .irish domain.

Are you .irish?

Pride and the Internet go well together. They’re both about the freedom to do your own thing.

In the early hours of June 28, 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village. Police brutality during the course of the raid drew an angry crowd, which eventually exploded into what became known as the Stonewall Riots.

The Stonewall riots brought together the LGBTQ community in a way that it never could before, and New York’s Pride Parade, beginning in 1970, specifically honors this legacy and the movement it sparked to make all sexual identities legal, safe and free of discrimination.

Pride celebrations now span the globe, and since, because of the legacy of the Stonewall riots, many of these celebrations happen in June, this whole month Gandi will be celebrating Pride as well with .lgbt domains on sale for $11.45 per year (normally $28.62 at A rates), from June 1 until June 30, 2016 at 4:59 PM PDT.

After all, it’s your internet. It’s only fitting that you can be whoever you truly are online. In June, celebrate that freedom with a .lgbt domain.

Are you a part of something? An athletic club? A social club? A cartography club? Maybe a book club? Whatever your interests, it’s so much easier to do it together than to do it alone.

Instead of the usual $13.43 per year (at A rates), from June 1 through June 30, 2016, .club domains will be on sale for just $6.72 per year.

It’s the time of year again. WSOP starts June 1 and poker players and fans of all stripes are headed to Las Vegas to participate.

Maybe some of you can make the pilgrimage and end up across the green felt (if you play in any bracelet events) from the likes of Ismael Bojang or Howard Lederer.

And who will be POY? Newcomer Dmitry Urbanovich? Or is it time for Stephen Chidwick?

We recommend wagering carefully. Don’t blow your bankroll your first night in town. And there’s no safer wager this year than a .poker domain name.

That’s why starting May 31, 2016 until the day of the Final 9 of the Main Event on July 18, 2016, .poker domains will be 80% off at Gandi.

Normally $28.61, for the duration of the WSOP, they’ll be just $5.72 per year. We’re not bluffing.

Whether you’re attending, playing, or watching from home, bet on a .poker domain for this year’s WSOP.
