Pranksters, hoaxers, and tricksters, it's time to get ready for the one day of the year devoted to your craft: April Fools' Day.

And to help in the process, we have two essential pieces of any good April Fools' joke on sale: .lol (already on promo) for $3.99* for the first year and $38.38* after that, for the humor-minded and .pics for $2.99* for the first year and $21.75* after, to honor the old adage "Pics or it didn't happen." What fun is a good practical joke if you can't post documentation of it online?

While the holiday is just for laughs, this promo is for real, starting March 26 and going until well past April Fools' Day on April 9, 2017.

Get your .pics and .lol's now and your lulz when the time comes ...

We're never excited to bring you this kind of news, but in this case the change is so significant that we feel a special sense of urgency to get you this information as soon as possible.

Beginning August 21, 2017 at midnight UTC (keep in mind: that's 5:00 PM PDT on August 20), prices on sixteen TLDs managed by Uniregistry will be increasing, in some cases by very significant amounts.

We do not have the final pricing yet but we do know the rough percentage increases on each TLD:

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.

The gates open at 9am PST on Tuesday, 15 April.

Below, you'll find the list of newcomers, accompanied by prices at A rates and a link to each TLD info page:

Please note that among these extensions, only .buzz had a Landrush, which means that many of the best domain names will be up for grabs when GoLive starts!
