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 $16.00 (compare to the normal $26.00 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.

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?

Now that "Happy birthday" is public domain, we can sing "Happy birthday" to two jolly good TLDs with birthdays is this month: .online and .tech.

Here goes: Haappy biiirthdayy to youu, haappy biiirthdayy …

You know what? Forget it. It feels tacky. How about this instead? All month, to celebrate .online and .tech getting one year older, your first year creation of a .online or .tech TLD will be just $1.50* each (normally they’re $29.99 each). From August 1 through August 31.

That way we don’t have to strain your patience with our rendition of “Happy birthday,” (We know our limits).

Global post-secondary education enrollment has been on an upward climb over the past twenty years. According to UNESCO, in 1996, just 16% of the world’s young adult population was enrolled in university while by this year enrollment is on track to exceed 35% of the global young adult population.

Regardless of what you think of this trend, .college is more popular than ever. Which is great news for those who sell The Big Lebowski posters, bean bag chairs and Twin XL size sheets.

You don’t need a dorm room, though, to furnish your life with a .college domain. Or, if you prefer, you could .rent off-campus. Either way, this August 1 through August 31, both .college and .rent are on sale for just $9.00* for the first (dare we say freshman) year (normally $92.71 per year at A rates).

It wasn’t so long ago domains used to be .com, .net, .org, .edu, .mil, and .gov. While anyone could register a .com, .org or .net domain, there was always a distinct US-centric flavour (or flavor if you will) to this initial set of generic TLDs.

Especially given that a special set of country-specific TLDs (ccTLDs) were created to be used by individual countries.

Since then, the internet has connected the world in a way it wasn’t before when this initial architecture was laid out and now, with the arrival of the new generic TLDs over the past couple of years as they’ve been delegated by ICANN, true generic TLDs can emerge.

Enter .gdn, a new generic TLD that stands for Global Domain Name, which launched just this past 7 March. And from now until 31 December, you can get a .gdn domain for just  US$1.50* for the first year.

What's your .gdn?

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.

Last week, we announced some great stocking-stuffer promos on the creation of domains from Radix. Among those included were some of their top sellers, .tech, .online and .site.

Which means …

  • .tech, which is normally $60.79 can be renewed for $28.99 per year
  • .online, ordinarily $29.99 can be renewed for $24.99 per year, and
  • .site, normally $34.87 can be renewed for $15.99 per year.

  • .tech creations are just $3.99 
  • .online are just $3.99 and

Whether it’s .live in front of a .studio audience or recorded for .video later, from July 1 through September 30, 2016 at 5:00 PM PDT, it’s show time. And by that we mean, they're half-off on the first year.

In other words, .live domains (normally $31.15 per year at A rates) will be just $15.57.studio domains (normally $31.15 per year at A rates) will be only $15.57 and .video domains will be just $14.41 (normally $28.83 per year at A rates).

Every year the holiday gift-giving season starts earlier and earlier. This year, it seems it’s starting already in July. At least as far as Radix Registry domains are concerned.

From July 1 until December 31, 2016, Radix has a little gift for us all: a huge holiday promotion on all eight of their TLDs :

  • .online just $3.99 per year instead of $29.99.
  • .press just $9.99 per year rather than $94.97 normally.
  • .website only $0.99 per year, compared to $30.31.
  • .site $1.99 per year, normally $34.87.
  • .host only just $10.99 per year, ordinarily $124.93.
  • .space $0.99 per year rather than $12.97.
  • .pw $0.89 per year, compared with $15.00 normally.
  • .tech just $3.99 per year, rather than $60.79.

All of which would make perfect stocking stuffers.

You know, it’s not so bad for the holidays to start this early when you’re one of the ones getting the gifts.
