These are two highly anticipated extensions in the world of domains! With more than 3000 pre-reservations (at Gandi), you all are big fans of skin, apparently.

As of today, Tuesday, 25 February at 8am PST, .SEXY and .TATTOO are available for registration by anyone at regular rates.

A simple Google search with the right keywords makes it abundantly clear that there are many reasons to want a .sexy. At A rates, your titillating .sexy domain is only $21.70 away.

Why not declare your love for your beau or belle with theirfirstname.sexy and keep the flame going for at least the next 12 months*?

As far as .tattoo goes, we're looking at you, ink people. You know who you are. Whether you're a tattoo professional, Ötzi the Iceman, or simply someone with an appreciation for dermatological art, .tattoo represents a unique opportunity to showcase your work, your passion, or your gift to the anthropologists of the future.

.tattoo is open to all as of today, at a price of $32.44 at A rates.

* Reciprocal affection not guaranteed. We'll always love you, though.

Usage statistics for CPU, disk (read/write) and network activity will be unavailable for several weeks for stability reasons.

Originally, our statistics tool was intended for IaaS servers. It was then adapted for use on instances, but the visualizations have not been entirely accurate. In fact, they weren't accurate at all. For this reason, usage statistics will no longer be available.

Over the last few months, our technical team has been working on a new system, which will replace the ones that have been present on PaaS/Simple Hosting and IaaS/VPS. These stats will be more detailed and precise in representing the real resource consumption on the instance. The new tool will also be considerably prettier, and we'll be able to build additional features on top of it.

The new statistics system will be released for PaaS instances in a few weeks. The IaaS version for VPS will follow shortly thereafter.


The domain availability service will be unreachable on tuesday february 25 between 07:00 and 08:00 (CET). During the maintenance window, the domain queries on the website and the public API will be impacted.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience

It's now possible to use GeoIP on Simple Hosting instances and on the Web Accelerator.

To do so, just obtain the 'X-Country-Code' from the HTTP header. The value returned will be a country code in the form 'EN', 'FR', 'US', 'GB', and so on, as defined by ISO 3166.

This functionality is useful for multilingual websites, because it allows you to adapt the language the site will be served in based on the country your visitor is located in.

The country code is determined based on a visitor's IP address. Bother IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are supported, and this feature is now available on all Gandi's datacenters.

For more information about using GeoIP on Gandi's Simple Hosting platform, see our support wiki.


The domain availability service will be unreachable on tuesday february 18 between 06:30 and 07:00 (CET). During the maintenance window, the domain queries on the website and the public API will be impacted.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience
