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.

Lottery tickets are a staple for last-minute gift givers during the holiday season, but as a gift, it can be more than just a literal gamble.

We have a suggestion for that high-stakes enthusiast in your life with better odds: get them a .bet domain.

To make it more of a sure bet, starting December 2, the first year of a new .bet domain is on sale for just $7.00, $20.79* after that.

And don't worry if you forget to make your .bet before the holidays. This deal extends all the way until January 31, 2017 (at 3:59 PM PST to be precise).

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.

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?

If you answered "more than one" to any of the above, you might be otaku.

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!

Traditionally, the grand opening of a new shop involves a big red banner, one of those flailing-arm tube guys, and a good old-fashioned opening day sale.

Well, one unfortunate casualty of online commerce is the ribbon and the flailing arm guy just don't have the same impact. But you don't need a brick-and-mortar to do an opening day sale. So when .shop enters the GoLive phase on September 26, 2016 at 8:00 AM PDT, you can get a domain in this extension for just $25.00* for the first year at A rates. Normally, .shop domains will go for $45.95* in A rates, so that's more than 45% off.

Even though .shop is currently in the Sunrise phase (.shop domains go for $1050.74* per year apiece in Sunrise), you can still submit your registration for a .shop domain in the GoLive phase now and once the GoLive phase begins, we'll send the order to the registry. That's the upside of not having a physical shop where you can buy your .shop: getting in line early doesn't mean camping out overnight on the sidewalk.

This promotion is good for any .shop registrations submitted for GoLive from now until December 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM PST (or midnight UTC). So come on down to Gandi for the .shop opening day sale.

Stop drop and .shop?

Followers of this page may know we cover a lot of new gTLD releases. Of course, the nTLD program is great, it opens up a lot of creative possibilities for domain names that simply wouldn't exist otherwise.

But every so often, there's that rare moment when you get something really special: a TLD that exists already, usually a ccTLD, which previously restricted its registrations in some way, opens the doors to the general public.

Such is the case with .fi, the ccTLD for Finland. Historically, .fi domains have only been open to Finnish residents and companies, but as of 3:00 AM PDT on September 5, .fi will bust wide open for anyone and everyone. The .fi TLD has lot of good options, too.

Of course, some of the good ones are already taken : wi.fi (and why.fi), hi.fi (even high.fi), and lo.fi are registered already. But as of this writing there are still a lot of great .fi domains out there: no.fi, exampli.fi com.fi even knights-who-say.fi.

So to lighten the load on anyone who wants to give a .fi domain a shot and to celebrate the new found .fi-dom, starting today, August 29, until September 30, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT, .fi domain creations will be just $13.50 (compare to the normal $19.50 at A rates)*.

That means even while the local presence requirements are still in place you can get a .fi domain for this price. But if you can meet the requirements and you do want to get your .fi domain before it opens to everyone, do it before September 2.

That's because September 2 the .fi domain service will be closing and domain registration will not be active until the new service opens up September 5.

*Prices in USD. For local prices see the .fi price page.

**Update 9/13:

After a bumpy start, .fi registrations are now truly open to all (two-character domains were additionally restricted until September 12). One final note: non-Finnish residents will still need to click the "Modify" link at the Contacts step in the domain registration process in order to indicate that they are not Finnish. This is due to the fact that Finnish registration numbers are still required for Finnish residents to register .fi domains.

Of course, if you run into any additional difficulties or have other questions, feel free to contact our Customer care team and they can help you through the process.


With winter approaching, it's the time of year when our fuzzy little rodent friends the squirrels start to gather nuts. Then, each type of squirrels will .store their nuts differently. Grey squirrels bury their nuts all over the place to hide them from their competitors. Red squirrels put theirs in one big pile.

Kind of like domain names. Some of you like to spread your domain names out and .store them in a bunch of different registrars. Others .store them all in one place.

In honor of the squirrels and the squirrel-like among you, .store (perfect for storage or for buying and selling, of course) is on sale at Gandi for just $7.99 per year at A rates* from August 25 until December 31, 2016 at 4:00 PM PST.

Will you store your .store with us?

If you think of the world in terms of TLDs, in the vast ocean of TLDs, it’s the .com’s and .net’s that are the vast continents and get all the attention. But along the .fr coast, between .wales and .bzh lie the Channel Islands: .je and .gg, or Jersey and Guernsey.

Like their real-world counterparts, these island TLDs are perfect for a maritime summer holiday. And all the more so this summer since, in celebration of their one-year anniversary (as TLDs, that is), .je and .gg are on sale from 18 July until 28 August for 50% off to create and 25% off to renew.

That means instead of £50.00 or $75.00 per year, .je and .gg will only be £25.00, and $38.00 per year to create and £37.50 or $56.75 per year to renew.

*UPDATED JULY 1 :

We are starting off the year summer right, with a virtual explosion of colorful extensions (and then some) on promotion from now until June 30 December 31, all of them 50% off.

.pink on sale for $8.16 per year (normally $16.31).

Going one further with diversity, we are also offering deals on

.kim for people and families whose surname is Kim, for $8.16 per year (instead of the usual $16.31)

and

.shiksha, which is for the culture of writing and phonetics of one of six forms of Sanskrit Hindu. Domains in this extension will be available for $8.16 per year (instead of $16.31).

Next, representing at least the black and the red:

.poker is on sale for $28.61 per year (instead of $57.22).

Then there are a couple of TLDs on sale which don't really have a direct relationship to colors and diversity, but are for areas we would certainly hope are diverse:

.pro for professionals is on sale for $10.00 per year (instead of $20.00).
.info for information of course is on sale for $4.97 per year (instead of $9.93).

Finally, rounding out the list are two TLDs that are focused on mobile technology:

.mobi for $9.00 per year instead of the usual $18.00.
.移动 (Chinese for "mobile", punycode .xn-6frz82g) for $8.16 per year rather than the usual $16.31.

 

*And now also: .promo domains are $9.70 per year instead of the usual $19.40.

 

So, how about one last champagne toast can of beer? To good deals on domains in 2016!
