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:

Taxes are not included in the above prices, which unless otherwise indicated, apply both to renewals and creations.

Besides the TLDs listed above, the following TLDs are also impacted, though only in grids B through E:

.asia, .org, .ag, .tv, .tel, .ws, .mobi:

  • Grids B and C: +10% on transfers only
  • Grids D and E: +10% on all operations

One last TLD, .biz, is also impacted but only on Grid E. The prices for all operations have been increased by 10%.


Afilias, the registry whose portfolio contains such colorful TLDs as .black, .blue, .pink and .red among others, is offering a six-month promo of 50% off on thirteen of their TLDs. The TLDs (with corresponding prices indicated*) include:

  • .archi: $39.67 (regular price $63.65)
  • .black: $28.62 (regular price $57.25)
  • .blue: $8.15  (regular price $16.31)
  • .info: $8.27 (regular price $16.55)
  • .kim: $8.15 (regular price $16.31)
  • .lgbt: $28.62 (regular price $57.25)
  • .mobi: $9.00 (regular price $18.00)
  • .pet: $10.40 (regular price $19.27)
  • .pink: $8.15 (regular price $16.31)

Going one further with diversity, we are also offering deals on

Next, representing at least the black and the red:

.poker is on sale for $28.61 per year (instead of $57.22).

Then there are a couple of TLDs on sale which don't really have a direct relationship to colors and diversity, but are for areas we would certainly hope are diverse:

.info for information of course is on sale for $4.97 per year (instead of $9.93).

Finally, rounding out the list are two TLDs that are focused on mobile technology:

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.

A great San Franciscan once said: “I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you gotta give em hope.

Today, we're proud to share a step forward with our friends in the diverse communities represented by a new TLD (a place to put your hope, if you will): .LGBT.

Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, an ally--or a business targeting them--.lgbt will be what you make of it. We hope to see this new online space flourish as a new and powerful way for people to connect. We're proud to offer domain names in this extension and help create a safe place online to support, discuss, promote and celebrate LGBTQ interests, causes and communities.

That being said, the introduction of .lgbt, managed by the Afilias registry, has not been without controversy. We'll be following this story as it plays out and counting on your feedback to guide us.

The GoLive price for a one-year registration of a .lgbt domain is $57.25 at A rates.
