We experienced an outage on the Gandi mail platform this morning. The outage was due to human error, rather than any failure of equipment or software. 

Here is the timeline (in UTC):

14:57 - A human error was made that introduced a problem for customers connecting to Gandi's email infrastructure. 

15:00 - Notification of the outage posted to Gandi's web site

15:06 - Physical connectivity restored. One machine unresponsive. 

15:23 - Full connectivity and machine function restored. 

In summary, some 15,975 mailboxes were not accessible for checking received messages or sending emails from 14:57 to 15:23 UTC. No data was lost. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this incident may have caused. 



Today, Tuesday, 29 April, another new gTLD has entered GoLive: .build.

The people behind .build were probably thinking of brick and mortar buildings and other, you know, concrete things.

But we all know that the only good .build is the one that passes all the unit and integration tests, are we right?

Whether you're a construction professional, a big fan of Legos, or a diehard Docker fanatic, you can now register your very own .build domain for $95.34 at A rates.

Today, Wednesday 30 April, another new gTLD is entering Sunrise at Gandi: .actor.

As usual, only TMCH trademark holders can register domains during this phase, but anyone can submit a Landrush or GoLive pre-registration, which we will submit for you at the beginning of the corresponding phase.

During Sunrise, which lasts until 30 June 2014, a .actor registration will cost $144.67 at A rates.

General Availability (a.k.a. GoLive) begins 6 August, after which the price of registration for a single year will cost $40.54 at A rates.

If you're really determined to get a .actor domain, but don't hold the corresponding trademark, you can register during the 3-day Landrush, which lasts from 9 to 28 July, for $169.67.

Hi,

 

We are facing problems reaching the .eu registry servers. The corresponding domain availability search service is not available. Our teams are working on the matter.

 

Thanks for your patience.


3 new gTLDs are now in Sunrise at Gandi: .bar, .rest, and .xyz.

These three extensions are currently in Sunrise. Non-trademark holders can already submit Landrush and GoLive pre-registrations, which we will submit at the beginning of the corresponding phase in the order we receive them.

Here's the list, accompanied by a link to the TLD info page as well as the price in Sunrise and the GoLive date and price, at A rates:

  • .BAR   $193.02 | $85.43 (begins 14 July)
  • .REST $148.24 | $42.88 (begins 14 July)
  • .XYZ    $228.91 | $13.63 (begins 2 June)

Register a domain under one of these extensions?


Some physical machines hosting IaaS VMs are unreachable due to an issue we are currently analyzing.

We are fixing the issues and restarting the VMs on other physical machines as soon as possible.

Thank you not to do any operation on your VM until the emergency maintenance is ongoing. and not finished.

At the end of the maintenance, if your server does not respond well, please contact our hosting support team by mail using the 'blocked server' option.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience this issue may cause to you.

 

UPDATE 12h20 : the situation is back to normal, we are still analyzing the metrics and the logs.


It's an unusual Donuts Tuesday in that only a single new gTLD is becoming available today: .services.

The new extension has just entered the Sunrise phase. As usual, only TMCH trademark holders can register domains during this phase, but anyone can submit a Landrush or GoLive pre-registration, which we will submit for you at the beginning of the corresponding phase.

During Sunrise, which lasts until 28 June 2014, a .services registration will cost $158.68 at A rates.

General Availability (a.k.a. GoLive) begins 9 July, after which the price of registration for a single year will cost $38.34 at A rates.

If you're really determined to get a given .services domain, but don't hold a trademark, you can register during the 3-day Landrush, which lasts from 6 to 9 July, for $178.68.

 

[Pre-]register a .services domain?

.SERVICES

During April and May 2014, you can register a new .CO for one year for half price: $16.50 instead of the regular $33.00 at A rates.

The timing is perfect for this promo: .CO, technically the ccTLD of Colombia, is becoming increasingly popular in the tech industry as a generic extension. Google has even confirmed it will consider it as a GccTLD for the purposes of indexing and SEO [Wikipedia].

.CO domains are available to all, with no residency restrictions. For more information or to register a domain, see the .co TLD info page.

A maintenance will be performed on our hosting infrastructure at Baltimore (USA) and Bissen (Luxembourg).

The following services will be interrupted for a few minutes starting at 2014-04-29 05h00 UTC (2014-04-29 10pm PST):

  • New SFTP/GIT sessions
  • Reverse resolvers for customer IPs
  • Operations on servers and Simple Hosting

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
