Better send the kids to bed for this one. We’ll give you a minute.

...

Everyone all tucked in? Okay. Let’s get freaky.

Spring is in the air. Buds are forming on the trees, birds are building their nests, the bunnies are frolicking in the clover, and we all know what those things symbolize.

So this spring, from March 1 through midnight UTC on May 31, our 18+ extensions are all on sale: .adult, .porn, .sex, and .xxx for just $12.00 per year on all four extensions.

As a public service announcement, we would like to remind you that as with all Gandi domains, your domain registration entitles you to one free, single-address, standard-validation SSL certificate, and while we encourage you to have fun with these domains, also be safe and use protection.

Feeling frisky?:

Four years on and ICANN is still adding the TLDs from the applications they announced they’d received back in 2012. This month the gTLDs being added tell the story of the race between Google and Amazon to buy up as many extensions as they can.

On February 19, for example, Amazon’s application beat out Google’s for .spot (the coveted .spot spot, as no one calls it). It also beat out one from DotSpot Inc., a corporation apparently organized specifically to act as registry for these domains.

Amazon was also awarded that day with .coupon. After a “private deal in June 2014,” Amazon’s application became the sole application for this extension.

On February 22, ICANN added .食品 (/shokuhin/, Japanese for “food”, .xn--jvr189m in punycode), honoring again Amazon’s application, as well as .store, a TLD which both Amazon and Google (among many) tried to snag. DotStore, Inc. ultimately won out.

Most recently, on February 24, Amazon also scored a valuable TLD for the music industry, .song, despite various objections, similar to those raised for .book (also added recently) that allowing Amazon to act as registry would be anti-competitive.

You can keep track of future developments on this page from ICANN.

Remember: these are new TLDs on the cutting edge of having been added by ICANN. As such, any discussion of one of these TLDs should not be interpreted as meaning any of these extensions will be imminently available on Gandi (though we, of course, try to offer all the extensions we possibly can).




There’s a beast inside us all that goes by the name “Ego,” and it’s a hungry beast. Some say it’s best to starve the poor creature but we think it’s perfectly okay to throw it a little scrap now and then. Use that shop window as a mirror to see how good you look. Take a selfie. Google yourself. Plant a recording device in your office so you know what your coworkers are saying about you behind your back.

And, from March 1 through March 14, 2016 at 11:59 PM UTC, you can nourish that hungry animal inside you with a  .me domain for only $4.00 per year (normally $14.40 per year at A rates). Because you’re worth it.

Feed .me?

From March 1 through March 31, 2016 at 11:59 PM UTC, .online domains will be available for just $4.99 per year.

We made our first steps online almost fifty years ago now with the birth of Arpanet, and since then, we have steadily increased our online activity. Now you can shop online, buy online, bank online and pay taxes online.

We each have online profiles, an online presence, those of us who are single date online, we find our homes online and the furniture to furnish them and then sit in them streaming movies online, gaming online and gambling online.

The Internet of Things will bring our refrigerators and bookshelves and pets online and one glorious day in the near future a USB-to-IV-drip device will be invented to inject nutrients into our bloodstreams at a rate of 480 megabits per second.

We have come so far online but there so much further to advance into that bright online future.

Normally, .online domains go for $12.00 per year at A rates, so this is the perfect chance to get on line with .online before that bright future comes ... well, online.

Are you .online?

Dear Gandi customer,

This is the critical moment. Today, March 1, eleven or twelve states, depending on your perspective, are voting in the primaries to select the next president of the United States.

It’s time to send a message to the elites in Washington and on Wall Street: we’re here to take this country back!

Our opponents are going to raise your taxes. Our opponents are going to cut protections of everyday working families. Our opponents are going to let our enemies invade our country and then they will lock us in an endless military quagmire in the Middle East.

And how are they going to do all this? By putting the government in charge. By handing out tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires who have rigged the economy against the people. By increasing wasteful spending and cutting funding to vital programs that work to keep working people out of poverty.

That’s why we have a plan.

But we need your help. From now until March 7 only, get a  .democrat domain for just $25.00 per year rather than the usual $32.49 at A rates or if that doesn't work for you, take a sensible approach to spending with a .republican domain for $25.00 per year (normally $38.34 at A rates).

Unfortunately, our handlers tell us we can’t buy your vote. But you can buy our .vote for $50.00 per year, one dollar per state (normally $95.34 at A rates).

Y para los latinos, pueden comprar dominios .voto por solo $50.00 por año (normalmente $95.34 en tarifas A).

But you must act quickly before the enemies of freedom destroy the progress we have made. These deals are only available from March 1 through March 7, 2016 at midnight PST.

We’re Gandi.net and we approve this message.

There are all kinds of moms out there. Soccer moms, single moms, step moms, PTA moms, working moms, stay-at-home moms, surrogate moms, fabulous moms, foster moms, fitness moms, yoga moms, … there are a million different variations, but they are all united by one important experience: motherhood.

And on February 24, 2016, this experience gets its own TLD: .mom is entering the Sunrise phase, when it will be available for $327.78 per year. There won't be a Landrush phase for .mom but on April 26, 2016 at 8:00 AM PDT, .mom enters the GoLive phase. At this point, it will be available to all for $48.22 per year at A rates (for non-moms, that gives you about a month until Mother's Day).

There's a .mom for every type of mom.

What type of .mom are you?

La Sagrada Familia is one of Spain’s most famous landmarks. With it’s four towering spires and its surreal art nouveau façades, it is the culmination of the life’s work of Antoni Gaudí. And while la Sagrada Familia’s construction began in 1882, it won’t be complete until approximately 2026.

Gaudí’s Barcelona masterpiece may take a century and a half to build, but your Barcelona masterpiece doesn’t have to if you build it on a .barcelona domain, now available in both Sunrise and Landrush, which are occurring simultaneously.

So if you are the possessor of an SMD file, thanks to a TMCH registration, you can now register your trademark’s domain in the Sunrise phase, if not, you can register in Landrush. During each phase, .barcelona domains are available for $162.58 per year.

Otherwise, you can wait until March 14, 2016 at 3:00 PM PST (midnight in Barcelona) and register your .barcelona domain in the GoLive phase, during which domains will be available for $85.46 per year at A rates.
