... And why it is necessary to open a ticket to help us to process your request.
It's not secret the internet has become a desperate battle for clicks. It is survival of the clickiest and this unnatural selection has resulted in some pretty bizarre mutations: click-bait articles for one but also of course, listicles (unfortunately not a frozen treat ... yet).
Honestly, we're not the listicle types, but in deference to its almighty power, we decided to compile a list of the Top Reasons to get a .top domain this December:
1. It's Chinese for breakthrough
So not only is it a strong, powerful TLD in English, but in Chinese as well.
Also, you know, globalization and stuff.
2. No better way to show your love for blouses and spinning things
The domain halter.top is already taken but the field is wide-open for other tops, and that's not to mention the little gyroscope thingys.
3. A .top top-level domain is, like, so meta
It's like the movie Inception in domain form.
4. .top just celebrated it's one-year anniversary
On November 17, 2014, .top entered the GoLive phase, and so this past month it celebrated it's one-year birthday.
5. It's on sale for just 50¢ per year until December 31, 2015 at 4:00 PM PST.
So you don't have to pay top dol--no, sorry, no we can't bring ourselves to make a pun that bad.

A .club can be many things. It can be a way to organize your friends around a common interest, or if that common interest is you, it can be your own personal cult of personality, it can be a fun place to go to dance or a tool you use to bludgeon your enemies.
And from December 1 through December 31 at 4:00 PM PST, a .club can be yours for 50%-off the normal rate ($5.37 per year instead of the usual $10.74 per year at A rates).

Cyber Monday is the day we all forego watching cat videos and posting clever status updates to social media to deflate our productivity at work to do something that actually contributes to our countries' GDP by buying shoes online.
Domains in the .online and .tech TLDs will be on sale for just $4.00 per year (try finding a pair of shoes that inexpensive. On second thought, for your feet's sake, maybe don't). Domains in the .site and .website TLDs will be priced even lower at $1.00 per year.
Don't miss out on your chance to spend some more company time and spend some (but very little) of the cash your company pays you to do so shopping this Cyber Monday. This sale starts November 27th (Black Friday) and only lasts until November 30th at 4:00 PM PST (so you can get some actual work done that last hour before Happy Hour).

Seems like there's never enough .space. There's never enough personal space on a crowded bus or train, living space in cities like San Francisco, disk space on a hard drive or server space in the "cloud".
And yet somehow, there's always more space. There's the empty train behind the crowded one, there's Walnut Creek across the bay on the other side of the hills from San Francisco, there's the new eleventy terabyte hard drive, and "unlimited" server space.
With domains it's the same story: all the cool .coms and .nets are taken and new gTLDs can be pricey. But there's always more .space somewhere: from now until December 2nd at 4:00 PM PST, .space domains provide that much needed domain space for just 99¢. Not even a whole dollar.
So why be a sardine in a crowded tin can?

Retailers eager to take advantage of the turkey-addled brains of the thanks-giving public and their enthusiasm to counteract the dismal effects of winter's cold, grey, lightless days with compulsory present-giving have devised Black Friday, today.
And if you're one of those who would gladly camp out Thanksgiving night or have been listening to Christmas carols since Halloween (or if you're providing the sweet relief of sweet Holiday deals to such people), have we got a deal on some great domains.
Not only will .blackfriday domains be available for $3.00 per year (normally $51.01) from now until November 30, 2015 at 4:00 PM PST but .christmas will be on sale for $3.00 per year (normally $38.34) and .gift will also be going for just $3.00 per year (normally $21.75) during the same timeframe.

With the wintertime gift-giving federal bank holidays are just around the corner, November is when all the latest and coolest gadgets start to go on sale.
Online shoppers are gearing up for Cyber Monday, putting aside clever tweets and Facebook updates at work to look for bargains at work on the latest gadgets like nano-suction skinned phone case (makes any surface into a selfie stick), hoverboards, drones you can plug your phone into for aerial photography (controlled by smart watch, naturally), keyboard cleaning miracle putty, and all things BB-8 (unfortunately, the HoloLens doesn't ship until first-quarter 2016).
What better giant fuzzy red sock stuffer could you ask for than a cool domain name? Only thing is: how do you choose between .io and .tech? No more need.
For the one who needs to always have the next big thing, we're offering a .tech for each .io.
What better TLDs to bundle together as virtual stocking-stuffers for that techie in your life (or, let's be honest, yourself) than .io, the tech world's darling extension, and .tech, the hottest new kid on the block.
Here's how it works: when you buy or transfer a .io domain to Gandi, a little Internet gremlin (also known as our mail server) will drop a coupon—good until December 25, 2015--for a free .tech domain in your mailbox.*

As is the case every year, the day after socially-mandatory turkey-gorging day is that most holy day in the US commercial year: Black Friday, the day when the pilgrims discovered how to get their earnings back in black through sales on those funny buckle hats and pantaloons, presumably.
So whether you're a retailer, a consumer, a pilgrim, a Wampanoag, or a protester, it's time to deck the halls for obligatory gift-giving season, and if you want to deck your online halls as well, there's no better option for Black Friday than a .blackfriday domain.
That's why in the lead-up to Black Friday, a day once devoted exclusively to regrets for having over-eaten, we're offering .blackfriday domains for just $30.00 1/yr (normally $51.01), starting November 20, 2015 at midnight PST and lasting right up until Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving (i.e. the 25th) at 6:00 PM PST.

There is only one Earth but in the Milky Way galaxy alone there are billions of potential Earth-like planets. And the limits of the number of .earth domains are just as high.
Tomorrow, November 19 at 7:00 AM PST, .earth enters the GoLive phase, and it's even easier to find a new .earth than it is in real life (and it requires less squinting into telescopes).
Domains in this extension are now available for $31.15 per year at A rates.
We'll sell you the .earth, but it's up to you to care for it.

Well, it's been fun. If you've been following, to celebrate the approximate one-year anniversary of .website entering the GoLive phase, these domains have been available for just $4.49 per year.
It's not time to make a wish for the next year at blow out the candles, so to speak. And by that, we mean, this promo is now ending. But don't despair, .website lovers, it's not leaving without a final parting gift: from November 18 until midnight UTC November 25 (4:00 PM PST November 24), .website domains will be selling for just $1.49 per year.
So get one before that price climbs back up to $36.37 per year at A rates.
