Just like every year this time of year, right now a bunch of cool new tech is out. We might take a moment to walk you through our top picks for the season, but we know you've probably had your eye on some things for awhile now so we'll save you the indignity of watching us drool over the latest gadgets and limit ourselves to just one suggestion: a .tech domain.
From December 5, 2016 through January 31, 2017 is the perfect time to get a .tech domain, when you can get some real savings by buying your .tech domain for the long-term.
That's because if you buy a .tech domain name for between 5-9 years, it will only cost you $16.70 per year*. With .tech domains normally $60.79 per year at A rates*, that's just$150.30 for the full 9 years instead of $547.11*.
Or, if you're going to get a .tech for 9 years, you might as well make it a full 10 years. Registrations of new .tech domains for 10 years this December and January will be just $11.50 per year*, meaning a ten-year .tech registration would come to just $115.00 instead of $607.90*.
So get yourself a .tech domain for a few years now and save yourself enough to get some great tech later.

If you missed our Cyber Monday sale on these TLDs, look no further!
It doesn't matter if they're buying sneakers or smart phones or if they're doing it online or in person. Even people who eschew all technology in favor of a face-to-face, personal shopping experience have shifted their expectations. While in the old days, shoppers wanted to make their transactions and get out, now increasingly in the age of internet commerce, customers are looking for an interaction. That is, shopping is now a relationship.
And we have good news for anyone looking to set up .shop online and start that relationship. Starting November 8, 2016 until January 31, 2017, create your .shop domain for just $9.99 per year (normally $45.95 per year at A rates)*.

Buy low and sell high. If that's you're mantra, then now is a great time for playing the .markets market or for trading in .trading.
Why? Well, we don't necessarily encourage domain name trading, but the market on .market and .trading is looking good. We're predicting good returns on your investments in both TLDs during Q4 2016 and Q1 2017 because from November 7 through February 12, these two extensions are 75% off for the first year. That means that a .markets domain, normally $82.45 will be $20.62 for the first year (full price after that) and a .trading domain, normally $102.97 will be $25.75 for the first year (full price beyond that).
So now's the time to buy. Especially if you're feeling bullish.
Here's a little gift for any organization coming online this winter: from now until December 31, 2016 at 3:00 PM PST, new .org domains will be half price on the first year. That means the first year will be just $8.60 instead of the usual $17.20*.
But get them while you can: only the first 5,000 domains created will be able to benefit from this special pricing, so register your .org domain as soon as possible.

The South Asian diaspora of late has been gaining in visibility. The Office and Parks and Recreation introduced a mass audience in the US to Mindy Kaling and Aziz Ansari, who have now also gone on to headline their own shows The Mindy Project and Master of None, which challenge viewers to re-think assumptions about identity and how it is represented in media.
South Asians are often pigeon-holed as either doctors, math geeks and lawyers or as convenience store clerks, taxi drivers or call center employees. The reality, obviously, is more complex. And thankfully that complexity is finally breaking into mainstream public consciousness.
Enter .desi, the TLD for the South Asian community, whether born on the Indian subcontinent or far from it, .desi is for anyone who identifies with the South Asian identity.
And from October 16 until December 31, .desi is half-price. That means that a .desi name that's normally $23.14 per year at A rates will be just $11.57 per year*.
So this fall is a great time to celebrate Desi identity with a .desi domain.

As temperatures in the northern hemisphere start to drop, you can keep warm either by dreaming of roasting chestnuts and panellets for Castanyada or of a feline friend to snuggle up with because from now until January 11, 2017 at 1:00 AM PST, .cat domains are just $5.00 per year at A rates*.
Remember: even though the internet was primarily invented for cat pictures and you can certainly use your .cat domain for that purpose, the .cat registry requires at least one page be published in Catalan (here's a hint: cat pictures = fotos de gats).
How many anime crushes do you have? How large is your J-Pop playlist? How many times have you felt a burning desire to poses a stuffed animal from a video game or an anime t-shirt?

And if so, we have good news for you. The TLD just for otaku culture, .moe, is half-price from October 10 through 16, meaning it will be available for just $11.57 per year*. This only lasts one week, so better get one now!
