Ok, we are a bit late - these TLDS for the German city of Köln (aka Cologne) actually were released by the registry on Sept 5, 2014. The good news is that you can get them now at Gandi!


The charming city was once the capital of West Germany, and has the distinction of meritiing not one, but two TLDs. Which one you choose (.COLOGNE or .KOELN) is up to you, and you don't need to be a resident or anything special - these domains are open to all for $14.68 (at A rates, plus tax if applicable).

Two more new gTLDs are entering the Sunrise phase today, Wednesday, December 3, where they will remain until January 31, 2015.

The 3-day Landrush phase will begin February 8, 2015, at 8 a.m. PST, followed by GoLive which begins Wednesday, February 11, 2015, 2015 at 8 a.m. PST.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Sunrise, Landrush and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

Today, Monday, December 1, .taipei is entering the Sunrise phase.

Unlike typical Sunrises, the .taipei Sunrise will be on a first-come, first-served basis, and new registrations will be for three years, which means a 3-year Sunrise registration will cost $160.62 at A rates.

There will be no Landrush phase.

When .taipei enters the GoLive phase on March 31, 2015, the price of a one-year creation will be $26.94 at A rates.

.gent, the geographic TLD for the Belgian city of Ghent, is entering the Golive phase today, November 24.

.gent is open to all. A one-year registration will cost $44.67 at A rates.


Register a .gent?


.quebec is entering the Golive phase today.

Note that .quebec is reserved to registrants with a connection to the the Quebecois community. Don't be surprised, therefore, when you are prompted to provide some additional information: you'll be asked to provide a brief explanation of why you're registering a .quebec and what you intend to do with the domain. Your response will be forwarded to the .quebec registry, at their request.

A one-year registration of a .quebec domain will cost $43.78 at A rates.

.BRUSSELS and .VLAANDEREN are entering into the phase reserved for Belgians.


This period runs from November 13th to December 15th, 2014.


Any Belgian national that has a Belgian electronic ID card may make a registration request, whether or not he or she resides in Brussels.


However, only domain names containing the first and last name of the applicant will be accepted:

For example, if your name is René Magritte, you would be able to register one of the following combinations:

     magritte.brussels: last name
     magritterene.brussels: last name + first name
     renemagritte.brussels: first name + last name
     magritter.brussels: last name + first initial
     rmagritte.brussels: first initial + last name


Some accented characters are authorized, so renémagritte.brussels would also be a valid request for example.

You must first go to the Registry's website at nic.brussels and use the e-ID-Wizard.

Once your eID has been validated, a reservation code will be sent to you by the Registry. Please save this code, since you must send it to Gandi's customer support in order to complete your registration.

This code is only valid for 7 days, so you will want to be sure to act quickly. If you miss the deadline, you will need to start the process over from the beginning, and hope that someone with the same name does not get it before you, since it is still sold on the first-come, first-served basis.


If you would like to participate in third phase, you will need to chose the "Landrush" registration phase type between November 13th and December 15th 2014. Your order will then change its state to "error", while waiting for the reception of your e-ID, which will be validated by our support team.

If you do not provide this before the end of the phase, the operation will be automatically cancelled on December 16th!

The cost of registration during this period is €1.50 excl. VAT for one year, under A rates.


Do you want to register a domain in this extension?

We must perform an emergency maintenance to replace one of our core routers in Baltimore.

This maintenance is scheduled for November 19th between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM UTC (9:00 AM to 12:00 PM CEST - Paris time and 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM EDT US - Baltimore time) during this time, connectivity to Baltimore will be unstable due to BGP reconvergence.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and do not hesitate to contact Gandi's support team for assistance.
