If eighty-seven Oscar award ceremonies have taught us anything, it's that movies are a magical medium that fill us with wonder, transport us to new worlds, and tell us who we are.

And now, if you're one of the people contributing to self-congratulatory .film reels at awards ceremonies, a new gTLD just for you is now entering the GoLive phase: .film.

While the GoLive phase normally corresponds to general availability, in the case of .film, there are still restrictions: namely, you must either be a member of an association, body, or union approved by the .film registry or you need to hold the rights to a film title being used as a .film domain name.

Domains in the .film extension will now be available for $118.99 per year at A rates. So quiet on the set aaaaand ACTION!

To be honest, it kind of bugs us that there are those who only think about Ireland and the .irish on St. Patrick's Day. As a consequence, all they know about either is shamrocks and leprechaun, "luck-o-the-Irish" and beer that's dyed green.

Well, we couldn't be further from St. Patrick's Day, but we want to show our love for all things .Irish just to spite the types we talked about above. Domains in the .irish extension are available until November 10, 2015 for just $15.00, versus the normal $47.82 at A rates.

So there's no better time than now to get one. Let the ones who only ever think of the Irish in March pay full-price.

With .miami now entering the GoLive phase October 2, 2015, we'd like to pitch you our crime procedural we've been working on. Imagine, now, you're transported to a place where every interior shot is bathed in an orange glow, as though the sun were perpetually setting, where every exterior shot is ridiculously overexposed, and where "science" means examining various colored liquids in test tubes.

A strawberry-blond detective in aviator sunglasses confidently strides across the sun-drenched parking lot of the marina.

"What have we got here, Frank?" he asks disinterestedly, taking his sunglasses off and squatting down next to him as Frank zipped the body bag.

"Victim is a 35-year-old female, tourist from Wisconsin, multiple--"

"I heard the report already, Frank," says the detective, not wanting his partner to delve into the gory details he had already heard over the radio on the car ride over, "Any leads?"

"Friends say she came down to catch some sun, drink mojitos, register some gTLDs," Frank says in a tone somewhere between tough-love and outright judgement.

"Well it looks like …" the pink-faced, strawberry-blond detective says, putting his sunglasses back on, "… she should have registered her domain … in .miami …"

We kid, but this extension is for all things great about Miami, which is a lot more than what you see on TV. In the GoLive phase, .miami domains are available for $24.99 a year at A rates.

Sometimes, when we're feeling lonely and our miniature horses are mad at us, we like to think about the personalities of each of the letters of the alphabet.

There's A, for example: always has to be first in line. Can't let anyone forget it. Type A, 100%, 4.0 GPA, squeaky clean. F which just doesn't seem to care. Poor grades, flunking out, it doesn't give two F-words. Even pronouncing it is like trying to make another, better sound but giving up.

But ever notice all the cool letters hang out at the end of the alphabet? X, Y, and Z are the cool kids. Like hat-backwards-sunglasses-leather-jacket cool kids. Which is why .xyz is so great.

With the end of September we just wrapped up a great promotion on .xyz domains, but don't feel too bad if you missed out on this deal because from October 1 through December 31st, 2015, you can pay just $5.00 for the first year of a new .xyz domain.

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.

Starting in the month of October and lasting until January 15, 2016, domains in the .press extension will be available for $19.90 (normally $94.97) for the first year at A rates and .host domains will be available for $17.99 (normally $124.93) for the first year at A rates.

Despite reports to the contrary, print media is not dead. It just had a near-death experience, went on a spirit quest, and found itself. And like most who go through this kind of soul-searching, it's come back more interesting than ever.

Take, for example, last weekend's Steamroller Printing Festival when a 1924 Buffalo-Springfield Coal Powered Steamroller was used as a printing .press.

And the .press in general isn't dead either. In fact, it's never been more alive. The Internet has now made it possible for anyone to become a citizen-journalist; no steamroller printing .press required.

Well, there's no better extension, then, for the new journalists than .press itself.

If you're more in the hosting game (and we don't just mean your wicked Halloween parties), a promotion on .host starting this month. Whether you're a developer hosting your latest .site or if you are exclusively a hosting provider, this deal is for you.

Now that class schedules are set and enrollment closed for students, it's time to sign up for domain names.

On Tueday September 29, 2015, .college enters the GoLive phase, and while during Landrush only those eligible for .ac.uk domains or .edu domains could register, now anyone can, and it'll be cheaper than your cheapest textbook this semester at $92.71 per year at A rates. Do we dare say to give it the old .college try? Or is that too lame a joke to make for the kind of sophisticated crowd that buys .college domains? Probably.

We were disappointed to realize on Wednesday that with the coming (and going) of the Autumnal Equinox, summer is officially over. Summer, like phone batteries, sleep, weekends, and our rapidly fading youth, is one of those things that just doesn't last long enough.

That's why we're resolving now to seize the day. We'll run around in the sunshine while the warm weather lasts, call our moms and tether simultaneously before our phone batteries die, sleep in and turn off the alarm tomorrow, and party all night Saturday and then get day-drunk on Sunday to make the most our weekends.

And in the spirit of carpe diem, while the glorious month of September still holds out, we're offering a promotion you won't want to let slide through your fingers like the slippery sands of time: .com domains will be available for 50% off—that's $7.75 per year versus the regular $15.50 at A rates—from September 28* until 2:59 pm PDT on September 30, 2015 (the last minute of the month in Paris).

If you've ever dreamed of owning a .com domain, seize the day today. Summer may be over, your phone may be dead, the weekend gone, and your youth pitifully wasted on anxiety and regret but while September is still here, so is this deal.

* Corrected 9/30/15 to clarify this promotion began September 28.

To take advantage of the new .srl gTLD, which enters the Sunrise phase on a first-come-first-served basis this Tuesday September 22, 2015 at 8:00 AM PDT, you need to be able to provide a company ID number as well as the usual documentation of your TMCH claim. That's because .srl is something of a Latin-country equivalent of LLC.

Depending on the language, it stands for Società a Responsabilità Limitata (Italian), Sociedad de Responsabilidad Limitada (Spanish) or even Societate cu Raspundere Limitata (Romania).

If you qualify for one of these, you probably already knew that, but in any case these domains will be available in the Sunrise phase until October 21, 2015 for $229.87 apiece (per year, at A rates). Then, on October 26, 2015 at 7:00 AM PDT, this extension enters the GoLive phase, when it will be available for just $44.77 per year at A rates.
