It was like any other morning at Gandi. We were sitting here, unsuspectedly, taking in another Sunrise Tuesday with its batch of new gTLDs, and reflecting on the news article to be written and posted. It would be hard to be witty about such a real estate-centric group: We had .PROPERTIES and .CONDOS, accompanied by the très français.MAISON as well as .IMMOBILIEN in the language of Goethe. The Spanish .TIENDA would provide a new online home for boutiques, but little opportunity for wordplay.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, .NINJA. Bam.
All of these extensions are available in Sunrise as of today, which means you have to have a trademark with TMCH in order to register them. If you don't, you can pre-register right now for the upcoming Landrush or GoLive phases and we'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment.
The list of newcomers, along with their respective prices in Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive/General Availability, follows:
A list of five new gTLDs is entering Sunrise today, Tuesday, 18 March. If you hold a trademark from TMCH, you can register now; otherwise you can submit your order as a pre-registration for either Landrush or GoLive, and we'll submit it for you at the earliest possible moment.
Below, you will find the list of new extensions, the A-rate price for the Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive (aka General Availability) phases, respectively, and the GoLive date for each:
As usual, the General Availability phase is first-come, first-served, so if possible, we recommend pre-registering your domains before it begins. That way, your order will be submitted to the Registry at the earliest possible moment.
Spring is here, or at least that's we've been told by people outside of California.*
These wanderlust-inducing new gTLDs have just entered Sunrise, where they will remain until 17 May, 2014. The GoLive phase (General Availability) will begin 28 May, but you can pre-register starting right now and we'll submit your order to the Registry at the earliest possible moment.
The list, accompanied by links to the TLD pages and the prices at A rates for Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive, is as follows:
Sometimes we have to let go a little bit of the #no_bullshit mantra. And we know that not all our customers are humble developers, working for modest companies. That's why we're happy to diversify our offering and introduce the TLD that approximately .1% of you will be proud to brag about: .RICH.
This "new and exclusive domain extension and status symbol," along with three other, humbler, new gTLDs, is entering Sunrise at Gandi today. During Sunrise, you can either register domains (if you hold a trademark registered with TMCH) or you can pre-register for the upcoming Landrush and GoLive phases in order to be the first in line.
.BLUE will be added to the Gandi palette, joining the .RED and .PINK extensions that became available earlier this week.
.移动 (.mobile in Chinese) is intended for those who want to target the mobile market in Asia.
.ONL could conceivably be considered an abbreviation for "online" and is also a Spanish acronym for nonprofit organizations, Organizaciones No Lucrativas, and...
.RICH, as you'll see below, is pretty self-explanatory, but in case it wasn't clear, it's for rich people and their needs.
Here are the Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive prices at A rates, as well as a link to the respective TLD price pages:
".RICH is the new and exclusive domain extension and status symbol on the internet for an elite circle of well-heeled personalities from the worlds of industry, art, fashion, sports and entertainment. From 2014, all these, along with selected providers of top-quality services, luxury and lifestyle brands will be able to hit the scene in the exclusively protected .RICH namespace - guaranteeing impressive exposure for their lifestyle in the spotlight!"
So join the Zuckerbergs, the Bill Gates, and other awesomely great people of the world, and get your .RICH today!
