There are actually two Earth Days: there's the one we all know and love on April 22 but the same year as the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, San Francisco mayor John McConnell declared March 21, 1970 as Earth Day too. McConnell chose this date to correspond with the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere.
Then Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin senator, proposed April 22 as well. With environmental issues becoming increasingly worthy of our attention, we have a promo to span both:
From March 1 through June 30, 2017 in celebration of both Earth Days, .organic, .bio, and .green will be on sale for first-year creations for just $9.00* and the usual price after that.

From the green forests of Costa Rica to the snow-capped peaks of the Andes and from the beaches of Rio to the peaks of Machu Picchu, Latin America encompasses an incredibly expansive and diverse geography.
And now your first year with Latin America's very own TLD, .lat, is only one third the normal price, $12.67 per year* and $38.38 at A rates after that*, from March 1, 2017 until May 31, 2017.
Remember: you don't have to be in the region to get a .lat domain. You just have to identify with the region or the culture.
Moving to Mexico is starting to look more and more appealing these days. If that's something that's on your mind, especially if you're looking to support yourself through a small business, you might consider moving to a .mx domain too.
The good news is that this month, from March 1 through March 31, 2017, creation of .mx domains will be on sale for $12.00* per year for up to two years' registration (and $48.00 per year at A rates after that*).
We're in a unique era for design. First, the big blank canvas of the internet and the tools it enables creates a space where design can be virtually unhindered by traditional physical constraints. And then there's the fact that the internet has accelerated the flow of ideas and creativity beyond what would otherwise be possible.
And now design has its very own dedicated name space — .design — where you can register your design-related domain name. This month only, from March 1 through March 31, 2017, .design domains will be on sale for their first year for just $7.99* (and$62.36 at A rates* after that).
So there's the basic plan. Now what are you going to make with it?
Start your .design?
*Prices in USD. See .design page for local pricing.
Do you possess a highly marketable skill? Do you find yourself frequently muttering "Bunch of amateurs," under your breath?
Well this spring is for pros like you. That's because from March 1 through June 30, 2017, .pro domains will be half price for the first year. That means instead of $20.00, the first year of your .pro domain will be just $10.00*
Be aware that only our Gandi Cloud hosting platform is currently available, which includes: Servers, Volumes, IPs, and Private Networks. No date is currently set for the launch of Simple Hosting and Web Accelerators on FR-SD3. These are currently only available on our primary Paris data center and our Luxembourg one (FR-SD2 and LU-BI1, respectively).
We would like to thank all of you who have helped test this new infrastructure so far during the Alpha phase and we would encourage all customers to continue testing it for free during Beta testing as well, all the way up until the release date of March 20.
Once that date arrives, we will no longer be able to continue offering free hosting on FR-SD3. The pricing scale in place on our other data centers will be implemented for FR-SD3 as well.
Of course feel free to contact our Hosting Support team for any and all questions, comments, impressions, or thoughts. Or, alternatively, share them with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two TLDs are entering the Sunrise phase, one of them is an online haven for free and open journalism, the other is a home online for those selling homes in real life.
The Sunrise phase for .observer and .realty, beginning February 16 and running until April 17, 2017, is the time for those with TMCH registrations to register their trademark for $2059.69* before these TLDs open to the general public.
If you don't own a trademark or at least aren't registered with TMCH, you can still get your .observer or .realty domain in priority during the Landrush period between April 23 and April 24 for $107.74*.
Otherwise, both .observer and .realty will enter the GoLive phase on April 24 at 7:00 AM PDT, when anyone can register one for $15.56 per year at A rates*. Remember: you can register a domain in Landrush or GoLive before these TLDs enter those phases and we will submit the order as soon as that phase opens.
So whether it's to create a safe home for journalism or provide safe homes for people, now is the time to get your .observer and .realty domains.
