These increase will apply to all operations on these domains, so if you've always wanted one of these domains, now is the time to get it. If you have one already and it's not renewed up to the maximum registration period (10 years on all of these), now is the time to top it off. And if you have your domain registered elsewhere and want to consolidate your portfolio at Gandi, now's the time to transfer it. As you can see from the list above, the savings could be significant.
It's always with great remorse that we make this type of announcement but effective 23 January 2017, in order to comply with our contractual obligations, we have increased registration and renewal prices on 76 TLDs, on all price grids.
The reason for the price increase largely has to do with the fact that we pay most new gTLDs in US Dollars and exchange rates have recently fluctuated such that we were compelled to increase rates on affected TLDs.
Generally, we don't adjust our prices based on minor exchange rate fluctuations, however the variations this time were too significant to be able to avoid adjusting our rates. So it's out of necessity that we are notifying you of the following new rates on the following TLDs:
Retailers eager to take advantage of the turkey-addled brains of the thanks-giving public and their enthusiasm to counteract the dismal effects of winter's cold, grey, lightless days with compulsory present-giving have devised Black Friday, today.
And if you're one of those who would gladly camp out Thanksgiving night or have been listening to Christmas carols since Halloween (or if you're providing the sweet relief of sweet Holiday deals to such people), have we got a deal on some great domains.
Not only will .blackfriday domains be available for $3.00 per year (normally $51.01) from now until November 30, 2015 at 4:00 PM PST but .christmas will be on sale for $3.00 per year (normally $38.34) and .gift will also be going for just $3.00per year (normally $21.75) during the same timeframe.
As is the case every year, the day after socially-mandatory turkey-gorging day is that most holy day in the US commercial year: Black Friday, the day when the pilgrims discovered how to get their earnings back in black through sales on those funny buckle hats and pantaloons, presumably.
So whether you're a retailer, a consumer, a pilgrim, a Wampanoag, or a protester, it's time to deck the halls for obligatory gift-giving season, and if you want to deck your online halls as well, there's no better option for Black Friday than a .blackfriday domain.
That's why in the lead-up to Black Friday, a day once devoted exclusively to regrets for having over-eaten, we're offering .blackfriday domains for just $30.00 1/yr (normally $51.01), starting November 20, 2015 at midnight PST and lasting right up until Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving (i.e. the 25th) at 6:00 PM PST.
Note that .شبكة ("network" in Arabic), which has been in GoLive since February, can only be used with domains in Arabic script.
As usual: The Sunrise phase is reserved for those with TMCH-registered trademarks. If you're really determined to get a domain, but don't hold the corresponding trademark, you can register during the Landrush phase. Once a TLD enters the GoLive phase, it's open for registration at normal prices by anyone meeting the Registry's rules.
