Let's be honest: it's been a rough year for the media. No sooner was "fake news" coined to describe information from dubious sources circulating on social media that the term re-appropriated and leveled as an accusation by anyone seeking to discredit unfavorable media.
And compounding the issue, not all media have been exceptionally trustworthy either.
Well, this spring, from April 1 through June 30, maybe they can shore themselves up a bit with these media-based TLD promos, on sale for the first year and priced regularly after that:
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:
The exact times the gates will open on these TLDs is as follows (PST) [UTC]:
8am [15h00]: .JETZT
9am [16h00]: .CONDOS, .MAISON, .PROPERTIES and .TIENDA
10am [17h00]: .FUTBOL, .REVIEWS and .SOCIAL
If you want to register a domain under one of these extensions before anyone else, and you're reading this before GoLive begins, we strongly encourage you to submit your pre-registration now, and the Gandi robot will submit your order to the registry at the earliest possible moment.
A list of five new gTLDs is entering Sunrise today, Tuesday, 18 March. If you hold a trademark from TMCH, you can register now; otherwise you can submit your order as a pre-registration for either Landrush or GoLive, and we'll submit it for you at the earliest possible moment.
Below, you will find the list of new extensions, the A-rate price for the Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive (aka General Availability) phases, respectively, and the GoLive date for each:
