Do you want to start a .family with us?

Wait, no, don’t take that the wrong way! We just mean now’s a great time to get a .family domain. We’re selling them for $8.00 a year right now until June 30, 2016. Compare that to $31.15 normally. It’s a deal for the whole family, as they say on TV. Get one for you, your mother, your father, or your whole branch of the family tree. Or why not the whole tree?

Design is a plan. It’s a way of thinking critical about form and function. It can be beautiful or utilitarian or in rare cases, like the seminal designs of Dieter Rams for Braun, both. His sparse designs were aesthetically unmatched and functionally intuitive.

And in imitation, here is a sparse, functional price to match Rams’s design: from May 1 through June 15, .design domains will be on sale for 50% off: that’s $31.18 per year.

Tech is an industry, a news beat and a means to an end.

But it’s also a diverse community, an ongoing process and a social revolution. It’s a word that’s become synonymous with a certain type of person: the kind of person who likes to tinker and play, who likes trial and error, taking risks, and trying new things.

If that sounds like you, you might be interested to know that .tech domains are now on sale at Gandi from May 1 through May 31 for $4.99 per year (normally $60.79 at A rates).

We’ll provide the domain but we trust you to know what to do with it.

We are happy to announce the release of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) on Gandi Cloud.

 

New features

Xenial Xerus uses systemd for the init process and includes with several new features, including Snap, a new application packaging format that works alongside .deb. Many popular software packages have also been updated in this new release, such as PHP 7, MySQL 5.7 or docker 1.10.

Take a look at the official release notes to learn more about Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenialXerus/ReleaseNotes

 

Server creation

You can create a new server on any of our 3 datacenters from our website, Gandi CLI or our API.

For example, with Gandi CLI, run the following command in your terminal to create your server :


  $ gandi vm create --image "Ubuntu 16.04 64 bits LTS (HVM)" --hostname "xenial" --datacenter LU-BI1

To upgrade an existing Ubuntu system, check out Ubuntu's upgrade documentation.

If your current system is running on our legacy Xen platform, please read our documentation to learn how to migrate to HVM.

 

Built-in kernel and Docker support

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS servers will use the distribution's built-in kernel, Linux 4.4, instead of using our managed kernels by default. Your server will start with the low latency version of the Linux kernel prepared by Ubuntu. It uses a grub boot from Gandi platform and uses the kernel installed in the image. The grub boot method is an option of our HVM platform.

We are therefore making Ubuntu 16.04 LTS the default image for the Gandi plugin to Docker Machine and are recommending it for Docker usage on our platform.

You can get started with and learn more about the docker-machine-gandi plugin on GitHub.

Enjoy the latest release of Ubuntu! Don't hesitate to contact our Customer Care if you experience any issues. You can also hang out with Gandi staff and other customers on our IRC channel: #gandi on irc.freenode.net.


Today in Internet meditations, we ask you to imagine you are walking along a path in a forest at Sunrise full of tall, majestic trees, like the ones in the Amazon. Birds twitter playfully between the branches. An apple tumblrs from a nearby branch and falls at your feet.

Through a clearing, you come across a .stream. How wide is it? What is it streaming? That’s for you to decide now that .stream has entered the Sunrise phase from 7:00 AM PDT today until June 27, 2016 at 7:00 AM PDT.

Buy one today in the Sunrise phase for $300.62 per year if you have a TMCH registration. Otherwise, submit your application to register your .stream in the GoLive phase, which starts on June 29, 2016 at 7:00 AM PDT. Better yet, .stream will be on sale for just $2.00 per year (the normal price will be $38.31 at A rates).

Now, to finish our meditation, to get home, you must cross this .stream. See you on the other side.

Starting today, April 21, 2016 at 7:00 AM PDT, .tube becomes available at Gandi in the Sunrise phase. Domains in this extension will be available for $160.60 per year for companies registered with TMCH.

Obviously, this is a good TLD for video services, but consider buying two, three or more. You could have a whole series of .tubes to fill up, presumably with the proverbial "enormous amounts of material."

There won’t be a Landrush phase for this TLD, so if you don’t have a TMCH registration you’ll have to wait until July 7 at 7:00 AM PDT at the earliest for your registration in the GoLive phase to be submitted. Registrations in the GoLive phase will go for $38.35 per year at A rates.

What if we told you you could have a .cat for just $6.50 per year on one condition: since .cat is officially for the Spanish region of Catalonia, you have to publish a site on it in Catalan within six months of registering it. How could you say no?

It’s the Internet’s favorite pet in TLD form, and with a domain at Gandi, you can create a one-page site for free. Just throw some of your favorite lolcatz into the online translator of your choice and voila, requirement met.

Think of it like grooming your .cat.

But act quickly, this promo only lasts from April 18, 2016 until May 2, 2016 at 4:59 PM PDT.

Do you hear that? Your .cat is purring already.

Every year since 1970, April 22 has been Earth Day. This year, the landmark Paris Agreement will be signed by the United States, China and other countries.

Earth Day by itself is worth celebrating. But signing this agreement, countries are committing to hold the increase in global temperature below 2°C, committing signatory nations to ambitious progressive contributions to the effort through greenhouse gas reduction and mitigation actions.

It’s not a perfect solution to the problem, but it’s a good start and a historic move and we think that’s worth celebrating doubly this Earth Day. In that spirit, from April 15 through May 31 (at 23:59 UTC or 4:59 PM PDT), .earth domains will be available at half-price: that’s $15.56 instead of $31.15 per year at A rates.
