With a lot of new gTLDs honing in on particular niches, two TLDs have aimed for the generic: .website and .site.

Of course, you can use a domain name for many different things. But there’s one use that is so closely associated with the idea of a domain name that it’s easy to confuse the two terms. We’re talking, of course, about websites.

And what better TLDs, then, to build a website on than a .website or a .site? Well, now could be the time to do it because both are on sale from April 1 until April 30, 2016 (at midnight UTC or 5:00 PM PDT) for just $1.99 per year (normally $17.87 for .site and $16.81 for .website per year at A rates).

Cyber Monday is the day we all forego watching cat videos and posting clever status updates to social media to deflate our productivity at work to do something that actually contributes to our countries' GDP by buying shoes online.

So, on that note, we have some good news! Gandi is having a cyber-themed Cyber Monday with promotions on .online, .tech, .site and .website domains.

Domains in the .online and .tech TLDs will be on sale for just $4.00 per year (try finding a pair of shoes that inexpensive. On second thought, for your feet's sake, maybe don't). Domains in the .site and .website TLDs will be priced even lower at $1.00 per year.

Don't miss out on your chance to spend some more company time and spend some (but very little) of the cash your company pays you to do so shopping this Cyber Monday. This sale starts November 27th (Black Friday) and only lasts until November 30th at 4:00 PM PST (so you can get some actual work done that last hour before Happy Hour).

Is there a web developers month? Maybe we ought to declare October web developers month. Not only does a great promotion on .host start this month, but another great promotion runs this month that would be perfect for developers: .site.

Whatever type of .site you specialize in (even if you don't actually design sites but just customize templates … shhhh we won't tell), this month's promotion lets you purchase a .site for just $1.99 per year (normally $34.87) at A rates.

The promotion on .site is for the month of October only. So get yours before heading out to trick-or-treat this October 31st.

All this month four TLDs that you can use to create your online dominion: .space, .site, .website, and .pw

First, create your own virtual, infinite (or finite depending on your cosmological opinion) void with .space. Not only can this be used for outer .space, but would be great for, say, a coworking space, a hacker space, a maker space or just a blank space.

Next, .website and .site are both pretty straightforward, but could be especially useful for the webdevs out there. We can think of no better way to showcase your talents than a .site or .website domain.

And finally, secure your online .space, .site, or .website with a .pw.

All four of these gTLDs are currently available at a considerable discount from now until September 30, 2015.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding promotional price of a one-year registration (as well as the normal A rates):

  • .space: $2.49 (normally $12.97)
  • .website: $4.49 (normally $30.31)
  • .site: $5.49 (normally $34.87)
  • .pw: $1.49 (normally $15.00)

Say you're sitting in your neighborhood coffee shop, the aroma of freshly-ground, deep-roasted coffee beans is heavy in the air, sunlight is filtering in from the window, next to which you are seated, watching the crowd walk by perched atop a comfy armchair as you sip your pour-over Ethiopian peaberry.

As you watch the crowd roll by your picture window, you're thinking about, well, domain names of course (what else?).

A woman on the street corner with an old newsy hat, just on the other side of the glass is selling papers, greeting passersby with a cheery, "Nice day out today!" or the traditional "Extra!" Today, a gTLD perfect for her enters the GoLive phase: .news, available for a one-year registration for $31.15 at A rates.

Your eye lazily (not enough caffeine yet) drifts to the computer screen just in front of you in the outdoor seating. Perched a good two-feet higher, you can't help but sneak a peak of the project being worked on: someone is writing Python! You deftly surmise that this person must be a web developer and remember that today .site also goes live, available for $19.95, also at A rates.

Suddenly, you catch sight of a bicycle courier racing to beat a stoplight, for a moment it seems she is frozen in mid-pedal as you admire her speed and efficiency, bringing to mind .express, which is now available for $41.41. She seems to pause for just one moment to deflect the question back on you.

And how would we answer her? Try a .cafe to sum up this experience, now available in the GoLive phase for $41.41 at A rates.

Today, all of these gTLDs enter the GoLive phase.

Currently in the Sunrise phase, this is one of the most anticipated top-level domains at Gandi, and it's a handy little gTLD: .site. it's all about location. Not only does a business need a location IRL, but now more than ever it's important that people can find you online too. A quick, sharp, .site address is a great way to mark your company's location on the Internet. Not only that, but it's an excellent way to stake out your own location online as an individual.

The Sunrise phase will last until July 6 for those with TMCH claims. During this phase a one-year registration will cost $183.79 at A rates.

Then, from July 12 to July 15, the extension will open for everyone at the same price, $183.79 for a one-year registration at A rates, during the Landrush phase.

And finally on July 15 starting at 9:00 am PDT, .site will enter the GoLive phase when a one-year registration will be available or $34.87 at A rates.

If you want to stake out your .site without a TMCH claim for the GoLive phase before July 15 at 9:00 am PDT by registering for your domain for GoLive now, you can benefit from an additional 40% off for a one-year registration, translating to $19.95 for a one-year registration at A rates.
