When .eu was first introduced in 2005, domain internationalization had barely begun. The Internet Engineering Task Force didn’t create an IDN working group until 2008, .eu, the TLD for the European Union, was one of the TLDs to offer internationalized domain names.

Now EurID, the .eu registry, is able to offer .ею (or .xn--e1a4c in Punycode) as the Cyrillic alphabet version of .eu.

With the introduction of .ею, new registrations of .eu domains in the Cyrillic alphabet will no longer be accepted. Registrations of domains in .ею will by in Cyrillic characters only, and current owners of “mixed” .eu domains, that is, Cyrillic alphabet domain names in .eu as opposed to .ею, will have three years to migrate to .ею free of charge, after which all “mixed” .eu domains (that is, that contain Cyrillic characters before the dot but are the non-Cyrillic .eu after the dot) will be removed by EurID.

But don’t put it off. Now, as Gandi offers new .ею registrations, is as good a time as any to get your Cyrillic domain name for .ею.

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.

And now you can be a part of the .club club for only half the normal price.

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.

We're happy to announce the release of a new instance family for Simple Hosting offering support for PHP 7 with MySQL 5.6, PostgreSQL 9.4 or MongoDB 2.4. It's in Beta stage and we look forward to your testing.

PHP 7 introduces several improvements and is claimed to be the fastest version of the language. On Simple Hosting, you can pair it with MySQL 5.6 (Percona Server), an optimized and more stable version of MySQL, PostgreSQL 9.4, which includes native JSON support with great performance, or MongoDB 2.4.

You can create a new instance by selecting "PHP 7 / MySQL 5.6 (Percona)", "PHP 7 / PostgreSQL 9.4" or "PHP 7 / MongoDB 2.4" at the following URL (you'll need to login or create a free account first):

https://www.gandi.net/hosting/simple/create

With Gandi CLI, you can run the following command replacing {instance type} with php7mysql5.6, php7pgsql9.4 or php7mongodb2.4:

$ gandi paas create --type {instance type}

All three databases are also available for PHP 5.6 instances. Simply substitute "PHP 7" for "PHP 5.6" and "php7" for "php5.6" in the instance type names to create PHP 5.6 instances with MySQL 5.6 (Percona), PostgreSQL 9.4 or MongoDB 2.4.

There is no automatic migration feature available, but you can check out our migration guide if you want to manually move your PHP applicationto a new instance -- just remember we're still in Beta!

Please feel free to contact Customer Care if you encounter any issues or come hang out with the staff and other customers on our Freenode IRC channel: #gandi on irc.freenode.net.

Back in the Dark Ages, before computers and smart phones, you used to have to carry your paper coupons, meticulously clipped from the Sunday paper in a big coupon wallet. Then when you did your shopping, it would be only the stuff on sale: this month turkey, tortilla chips, mint ice cream, tapioca pudding and bagels. And then you’d have to pay with paper money and carry it in paper bags. So much paper. So many trees.

We live in a more technologically advanced age, where you can ride-share to the grocery store or order online for delivery, e-wallets are replacing wallets, cryptocurrency is replacing paper currency, and now, with .promo entering the GoLive phase, that coupon book can go away too.

As of Monday May 23, .promo is now available in the GoLive phase for $19.40 per year at A rates.
