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%.


If you’re in most of the English-speaking world you might go to a pub once a day, once a week, once a month or less but in North America a pub is a place you go just one day per year: St. Patrick’s Day. The one day when everybody is Irish (especially if they’re not actually Irish).

And now that that time of year is rolling around, we thought it was a perfect opportunity to make going to the .pub a bit more affordable by making putting .pub on sale for just $7.00 per year (as opposed to the normal $38.34 at A rates), from March 7 to March 18, 2016 (Irish time of course).

So listen to a jig, wear green, and maybe even do something authentically Irish. And of course, go out to the .pub.

What’ll it be?

Web Summit was created in Dublin in 2010 by Paddy Cosgrave. This year for the fifth annual summit, more than 30,000 attendees and 1,000 speakers. Over the course of just three days, twenty-one cycles of conferences covering the themes you might expect in a tech conference like design, marketing, e-commerce, Big Data (how could it not, really), as well as topics you might not expect, like mobile healthcare and the question of whether we actually live in a post-capitalist society.


So, to celebrate both this amazing event and the beautiful city of Dublin where Web Summit is taking place for the last time before it moves to Lisbon next year (a beautiful city as well, don't get us wrong), we've concocted our own Happy Hour special.

Through Web Summit, from November 2 through November 5, domains in the .BEER.PUB.BAR and .IRISH TLDs are at half price if you register them for one year during Happy Hour. But, of course, Happy Hour doesn't last all night. This deal is only valid on each of these days between the hours of 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM in Dublin (same as UTC).

 

So, join us for a .beer (in an .irish .pub or .bar) during Web Summit, and if you're lucky enough to be one of the 30,000 attendees, tweet us @gandi_net so we can meet up for Irish beer IRL too!
