Today, .apartments enters the GoLive phase, but we almost want to call it the "open house" phase for this extension. So come on in, let's take a look around .

First thing you'll notice, it's all hardwood floors. All our domains come with hardwood floors. The problem is carpet looks good right away but after a few tenants it just starts to look dingy, so we took all out back in the 90s.

The fireplace is real, but too much of a liability so we plugged it up. Galley kitchen--these are oak cabinets--claw-foot tub and, you're going to love this, a cute little breakfast nook.

It's yours for one-year for $63.02 at A rates.

The national extension of Austria, .AT, is letting us provide you with a promo for the months of May and June 2015.

During these two months, every creation of a .AT domain will be half off the normal price, in all price rates. This means, for example, that for A rates, a .AT will be $12.50 instead of $25.00.

The quintessentially mercantile top-level domain of .markets is entering the Sunrise phase, which will last until June 17  on a first-come, first-served basis, just like tomatoes at your local vegetable stand. Unlike tomatoes, a one-year registration during this phase will cost $313.39.

There will be no Landrush phase.

The GoLive phase will begin June 17 promptly at 5 p.m. PDT (2015-06-18 00:00 UTC), after which a one-year registration will cost $82.45.

Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases. We'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment – as soon as your chosen phase begins – for the best chance of success.

A handful of new gTLDs are entering the Sunrise phase today, the first of which brings us back to high school gym class: .team is entering the Sunrise phase at $162.19 for a one-year registration at A rates, and it reminds us of always being picked last second-to-last when we picked teams for dodgeball.

Next up, you can finally put up that site for your unique brand of terrarium earrings and necklaces with your very own .jewelry domain, available in Sunrise at for $176.23 a one-year registration at A rates.

And finally, speaking of flashy things that catch our attention with superficial glimmering, .show also enters the Sunrise phase today and you can get your own for one year at A rates for just $162.19.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Sunrise, Landrush and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

  • .team: $162.19 | $183.79 | $41.41
  • .jewelry: $176.23 | $197.83 | $68.09
  • .show: $162.19 | $183.79 | $41.41

We live in a world of design. It saturates our daily existence and influences us in subtle ways, sometimes subconsciously. Consider how much thought has been put into your experience just walking down the street! The width of the sidewalk and the road was a design choice, the traffic control systems were designed, the names and logos of the stores and businesses you pass are designed and the products being sold or worked on inside are carefully designed.

The clothes on the people who walk past you were made by fashion designers. Take out your smartphone, a product of as much design as engineering, and use an app, also designed, to find the nearest art supply store where you can buy the tools to draft your own design. Now that's meta.

We'll have you know that we're sober enough to resist the urge to rant right here about all the BAD DESIGN in the world. If you ever meet us in real life, on the other hand... man oh man, do we ever have thoughts to share on that topic.

Anyway, .design has entered the GoLive phase. A one-year registration of a domain under this extension will cost $62.36 at A rates.

Now announcing a new gTLD just for the tech community : .tech. You know who you are: inventive, experimental, risk-taking and open to try anything.  With a .tech domain you can underscore your love and passion for all things tech.

Here's how it will happen:

First, there will be a Sunrise phase, which will begin next Monday, May 25 at 9:00 AM PDT and will last until July 24. During this phase, a one-year registration of a .tech at A rates will cost $307.99.

Next, comes the Landrush phase, which will fall between August 2 and August 5, during which time a .tech will run you $199.99.

Finally, on Wednesday August 5 at 9:00 AM PDT, we will enter a new era as .tech enters the GoLive phase and, here's the most startling prediction of all: when it enters GoLive, .tech will be available at 50% off, so will only be $29.39 for the first year at A rates (versus $58.78 normally) until October 5.

Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases. We'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment – as soon as your chosen phase begins – for the best chance of success.

We have started to renew and upgrade the SSL certificates used for the Simple Hosting admin interfaces.

Instances in Paris (FR) and Baltimore (US) are already serving the new SHA2 certificates on addresses such as https://.admin.dc{0,1}.gpaas.net.

Instances hosted in our Bissen (LU) datacenter will also be upgraded soon.

This update should be transparent to our customers (similar to the change affecting SFTP signatures last September), but our support team is ready to help. Please contact us should you experience any trouble connecting to your instances' admin interfaces.

On a related note, if you're interested in adding SSL to your Simple Hosting instance, see how on our support wiki: How to install an SSL certificate on your Simple Hosting instance


For today's GoLive, to activate your creativity we've composed a non-proprietary phrasal "ad lib" template game. You fill in the blanks. Here goes:

Five new (adjective) gTLDs are (-ing verb) the GoLive phase.

First, .bingo isn't just the (noun) before the meat raffle. There's all kinds of (adjective) .bingo domains you could register: make .bingo for televised (adjective) debates like (political party).bingo, .bingo for trashy (genre) films like (adjective)-film.bingo, or .bingo for farmers' dogs. Really, you don't have to stick with the (adjective) B12, I21, N35, G50, and O75 thing.

Next, .chat is also more flexible than it seems. Bring back (elected official)'s legendary (noun)side chats in the Internet age or advertise your (commodity) store in (adjective) Chats, California. Did you know the (language) word for cat is also chat?

Then, .one is the loneliest gTLD entering the GoLive phase today, but we're (adverb) sure you can keep it company. After all, it only takes one (singular noun) to (verb) a (noun)! Take (adjective).one, for example.

Do things (adjective) style with a .style domain, celebrate the (adjective) style of music or the literary style of (author).

Finally, our (superlative adjective) new gTLD: .tennis. With tennis shoes and tennis (plural noun) and tennis (sportswear), .tennis offers (adjective) possibilities.

Well, that's our non-proprietary phrasal template game.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

  • .bingo: $63.02
  • .chat: $38.33
  • .one: $12.69
  • .style: $38.33
  • .tennis: $63.02

A new security vulnerability, CVE-2015-3456, was announced last week. The flaw is found in the QEMU virtualization software, and permits an attacker to gain access to a vulnerable host from a virtual machine located on that host.

Immediately following this announcement, we applied the necessary patches, thus reinforcing the existing security measures we had previously implemented. Over the past week, we have continued to study the vulnerability. As a preventative measure, we have decided that a reboot of certain VMs is required in order to ensure that all possible attack vectors have been mitigated.

This preventive reboot will only affect a small proportion of our customers. We will contact affected customers directly via email to provide instructions on performing the reboot on their own.

We will reboot the VMs of affected customers (who have not rebooted on their own) on Monday, May 25 at 11:59 p.m. PDT (that is: Tuesday, May 26, 2015 at 07:59 UTC).

For more information, see the following resources:

If you have questions or encounter any problems regarding this issue, our support team is available to assist you.
