With the wintertime gift-giving federal bank holidays are just around the corner, November is when all the latest and coolest gadgets start to go on sale.

Online shoppers are gearing up for Cyber Monday, putting aside clever tweets and Facebook updates at work to look for bargains at work on the latest gadgets like nano-suction skinned phone case (makes any surface into a selfie stick), hoverboards, drones you can plug your phone into for aerial photography (controlled by smart watch, naturally), keyboard cleaning miracle putty, and all things BB-8 (unfortunately, the HoloLens doesn't ship until first-quarter 2016).

What better giant fuzzy red sock stuffer could you ask for than a cool domain name? Only thing is: how do you choose between .io and .tech? No more need.

For the one who needs to always have the next big thing, we're offering a .tech for each .io.

What better TLDs to bundle together as virtual stocking-stuffers for that techie in your life (or, let's be honest, yourself) than .io, the tech world's darling extension, and .tech, the hottest new kid on the block.

So starting November 10, 2015 and ending December 10, 2015, when you buy a .io domain, you can get a .tech for free.

Here's how it works: when you buy or transfer a .io domain to Gandi, a little Internet gremlin (also known as our mail server) will drop a coupon—good until December 25, 2015--for a free .tech domain in your mailbox.*

As is the case every year, the day after socially-mandatory turkey-gorging day is that most holy day in the US commercial year: Black Friday, the day when the pilgrims discovered how to get their earnings back in black through sales on those funny buckle hats and pantaloons, presumably.

So whether you're a retailer, a consumer, a pilgrim, a Wampanoag, or a protester, it's time to deck the halls for obligatory gift-giving season, and if you want to deck your online halls as well, there's no better option for Black Friday than a .blackfriday domain.

That's why in the lead-up to Black Friday, a day once devoted exclusively to regrets for having over-eaten, we're offering .blackfriday domains for just $30.00 1/yr (normally $51.01), starting November 20, 2015 at midnight PST and lasting right up until Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving (i.e. the 25th) at 6:00 PM PST.

There is only one Earth but in the Milky Way galaxy alone there are billions of potential Earth-like planets. And the limits of the number of .earth domains are just as high.

Tomorrow, November 19 at 7:00 AM PST, .earth enters the GoLive phase, and it's even easier to find a new .earth than it is in real life (and it requires less squinting into telescopes).

Domains in this extension are now available for $31.15 per year at A rates.

We'll sell you the .earth, but it's up to you to care for it.

Well, it's been fun. If you've been following, to celebrate the approximate one-year anniversary of .website entering the GoLive phase, these domains have been available for just $4.49 per year.

It's not time to make a wish for the next year at blow out the candles, so to speak. And by that, we mean, this promo is now ending. But don't despair, .website lovers, it's not leaving without a final parting gift: from November 18 until midnight UTC November 25 (4:00 PM PST November 24), .website domains will be selling for just $1.49 per year.

So get one before that price climbs back up to $36.37 per year at A rates.

We're here to address the gossip regarding Gandi and .八卦, also known as .xn--45q11c. The rumors, we confess, are true. We are in a relationship with this TLD: a loving and simultaneously professional relationship. We are tired of the rumormills constantly hounding us for a comment, so we are going public with this: .八卦 is entering the GoLive phase and is available through Gandi.

Coincidentally, 八卦 means "gossip" in Chinese.

Domains in this extension will now be available for $288.19 per year at A rates. Spread that rumor around as much as you like.

Le  .vin et le .wine sont arrivés ! (No we didn't just forget to translate that.)

Just like Beaujolais nouveau can't be released before November 19th, we'll be releasing domains in .vin or .wine extensions in the Sunrise phase November 17th, 2015. Imagine the scene at one minute past midnight on November 16th, millions of cases of .vin and .wine domains being loaded into a sleeping to Paris from little villages all over Burgundy.

By motorcycle, by truck, by rickshaw, by helicopter, by balloon, by elephant or via the wormhole on the other end of the black hole Fermi is creating, we hope to be the first to deliver to you the first .wine and .vin (French for "wine", if you didn't know already) of the Sunrise phase. Okay that's not how it really works, but imagine.

And if you must be the first to have a .wine or a .vin domain, you can try to be one of the first 100 wine pioneers. These lucky select few will be able to register their domains for free, so long as they put up a wine-appropriate website before the end of the Sunrise phase on January 16th, 2016. During this phase, .wine and .vin domains will be available for $176.23 per year. Then, from January 24 to January 27, 2016, these domains enter a three-day Landrush period when they'll be available for $197.83 per year.

Finally, these two extensions enter the GoLive phase, when they will be available for $68.09 per year at A rates, on January 27, 2016 at 8:00 AM PST.

So we are raising our banner : The .wine and .vin have arrived!

Will you be the first to serve (a webpage from) this .wine / .vin?

How about some?:

.wine / .vin

From its launch in 2002 up until now, the .pro TLD has been burdened by the onerous chains of a requirement to provide verifying documents of "pro" status in order to register a domain.

It's been a long time coming, but .pro has now broken free from these chains (okay, maybe it wasn't such a harsh requirement, but still).

As of November 16, 2015, Gandi will no longer be compelled to ask customers who registered .pro domains and then see their domain names revoked, suspended, or permanently locked: .pro domains will be open for everyone!

No more restrictions, no more nexus compliance.

So, take this opportunity to show the world how much of a "pro" you are and make a difference in your business!

And, to extend a warm welcome to the legions of pros no doubt yearning to be free to register their .pro domains without restrictions, we're offering these domains at a rate of $12.00 per year at A rates instead of the usual $20.00.

Go .pro?


Following this announcement we applied the necessary patches, thus reinforcing the existing security measures we had previously implemented. Over the past week, we have continued to study the vulnerability. As a preventative measure, we have decided that a reboot of KVM based VMs is required in order to ensure that all possible attack vectors have been mitigated.

We will contact affected customers directly via email to provide instructions on performing the reboot on their own. This preventive reboot will not affect customers we do not contact.

We will reboot the VMs of affected customers (who have not rebooted on their own) on November 19th. An outage of 30 minutes maximum is expected for each impacted VM.

If you have questions or encounter any problems regarding this issue, our support team is available to assist you.

There are few things more pleasant to do on a Fall day than laying out a blanket on a grassy hill and looking up at all those fluffy, white puffs of water vapor and transforming them into more familiar shapes.

Today, .cloud enters the Sunrise phase, a perfect domain for nephelococcygiacs. And while we'd rather be sitting on that grassy hill, of course, just like we apply alternative meanings to the random white fluffs in the sky, with the advent of cloud computing, "cloud" itself has become the go-to image to represent a number of concepts shaping our world today, so .cloud has a business side too.

During the Sunrise phase, .cloud domains will be available for $162.19 per year. The Landrush phase will go from January 25, 2016 to February, 5 2016 and during that period, these domains will be available for $61.93 per year and finally will enter the GoLive phase on February 16, 2016 when it will be available for $31.15 per year.

And while anyone is free to find shapes in the clouds, only those possessing TMCH claims may register one during the Sunrise phase.

What does your .cloud look like?



Like its megamall counterparts around the globe, the New South China Mall, the largest mall in the world, incorporates iconic architecture like the Arc de Triomphe, the Sphinx of Egypt, and even Venice's canals, concentrating the spectacle of old, grandiose architectural forms into a pastiche of grandeur to heighten the shopping experience and relieve the tension its visitors would no doubt feel wandering through such a vast cavern of commercialism.

But after the South China Mall opened in 2005, it failed to attract tenants. It sat empty and became a "dead mall." However, the mall reopened earlier this year after "upgrading and retrofitting" and now has over 100,000 visitors a day. It has experienced a very real renaissance, not just a simulacrum of The Renaissance.

The TLD .商城 (punycode .xn--czru2d) means "mall" in Chinese, and it's been a virtual space we had previously not paid much attention to, like visitors had to the South China Mall. But like the South China megamall, we feel it deserves a renaissance too. So we're happy to announce that .商城 will now be available from Gandi for $288.19 per year at A rates.

Go shopping for a .商城?
