We had some delay getting into .SPACE, so Gandi mission control is offering you this status update.
The Sunrise is over, and we are in the Landrush phase starting Monday, January 19th at 16:00 UTC, for a full week. The GoLive date is January 28 16h00 UTC.
Every so often, the registries allow us to do something special and offer this kind of special promo during Landrush. It's a great deal, so take advantage of it now!
The .SPACE TLD is priced at $169.83 during Sunrise (excluding tax). It will be $9.60 (for all price levels) during the Landrush, and will return to $12.97 per year at GoLive.
Note! We accidentally sent an email about this to a few more people than we intended. If you are one of those people, we do apologise for doing so. We hope you don't mind knowing about the promo all the same.

There were some difficulties yesterday registering .space domains during Landrush (operations were failing with "2201 : Trademark Claims Period for .space is not open"). This issue has been resolved. For details, see status.gandi.net.

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Holiday, it's fun to get into the spirit of giving this time of year. That's why we're making new .COM and .NET domains (normally $15.50 and $16.58) 20% cheaper.
This promo will be valid on new, one-year .com and .net registrations until the end of December, and you can get the discount by using the promo code MERRYCHRISTMAS when you place your order, right up until midnight Paris time on December 31, 2014 (3 p.m. PST/22:00 UTC).
In the true spirit of the holiday, this promotion is available to all customers, regardless of your rate scale. Go ahead and treat yourself to a domain! Feel free to tweet about it to us and your friends, too. We love to see what you come up with.

We must be crazy to be selling these domain names at such ridiculously low prices!
The wacky, waving inflatable tube man on our roof is flailing his arms wildly in promotion of the latest too-good-to-be-true rates on .WEBSITE domain names. After its first two months at the ludicrously low low back-to-school price of 50% off, .WEBSITE domain names are now available for the unbelievable price of just $5.00 for a one-year registration. We're practically giving these away!
We have four-doors, two-doors, automatic and manual transmissions all available at ZERO APR. Act today and we'll throw in free rust protection. But this deal won't last. We can only offer this amazing deal for one month only, the offer ends December 16th at 3 pm PST, so come on down today!

What makes this promotion special is that Gandi and the .XYZ registry each kicked in to contribute $1 to one of our favorite organizations, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, for each .xyz domain you bought.
We want to share the love again this month, and we asked you to choose the beneficiary for us!
You voted by retweeting the @gandibar tweet for your favorite supported project: Fight For the Future, FreeBSD, or Creative Commons. We couldn't bring ourselves to do this winner-takes-all style, so we'll donate to each organization in direct proportion to how many retweets each received as of Thursday, December 11.
The organization mentioned in the tweet with the most retweets will be also be ceremoniously declared the winner of Gandi customers' hearts, and we're not sure there's a higher honor than that.
So who won? See for yourself in this screenshot:
Yes, it is Creative commons who wins Gandi's heart - by a nose. Let's all make them proud and get them some cash while we get some .XYZ domains in December!
Update Jan 7, 2015: 423 .xyz domains were registered in December, so we'll be sending a $423 donation to these three organizations, divided proportionally by the number of retweets you gave them. Thank you!
