Two more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase on Wednesday, February 11 at 8 a.m. PST (3 p.m. UTC).  We haven't decided whether it's more fit for a logistics company, for take-out food or for a maternity ward but we are happy to deliver .delivery.  And we're pumped to offer a jolt of .energy to the domain name registration world with the GoLive for .energy.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding Landrush, which ends Wednesday, February 10 at 7:59 a.m. PST (2:59 p.m. UTC) and GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

The Landrush phase for 1- and 2-letter .FR domains will allow anyone who meets the registry's eligibility requirements for .FR domains to register available domains, though at a higher price.
The Landrush is divided into 4 weekly periods, each one with a lower price (prices below are excluding VAT):

    from 16/02, 15:00 to 23/02: €18,300 for one year
    from 23/02, 12:00 to 02/03: €12,200 for one year
    from 02/03, 12:00 to 09/03: €6,950 for one year
    from 09/03, 12:00 to 17/03: €190 for one year

The renewal of these domains will be at the normal .FR renewal rate (ex. €12 for one year under A rates). There will not be any pre-reservation for a given date, and in the event that the domain was taken before yours, we will refund your order in full.

If you have followed recent financial news, you have certainly noticed the historic high of the US Dollar versus the Euro.

The direct implication of this high for a European company that purchases goods in US Dollars is that there is an increase in costs. The consequence of this is that we are losing money in certain price rates.

And as our business model is to not use domains as a loss leader to push other products, we must revise our prices on the extensions in question in order to be able to continue to bring you the best possible quality of service.

Despite this, we will continue to allow you to benefit from the promotions that have been negotiated with the registries, notably with a major operation coming soon, and if the Euro/Dollar trend turns around and stabilises, we will readjust our prices downward.

Two more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase: .casa and .work.  We invite you to make yourself at home with .casa.  As they say, mi .casa es su .casa.  Or if you're feeling more like being productive, feel free to get to .work with the new .work gTLD.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

IRC is a big part of the culture at Gandi. Our internal IRC server is where most of our internal communication occurs. Those who have proposed we migrate to one of those fancy new hosted chat services have been slapped around a bit with a large trout. You'll have to pry it out of our cold, dead hands. Our precioussss...

In addition to our internal IRC network, we also have a couple of public IRC channels, though we don't advertise them too much: #gandi-mail and #gandi-hosting have been active on the Freenode network for years.

Why #gandi-mail and #gandi-hosting, instead of just #gandi?

If you've ever tried to join #gandi on Freenode just to see if it existed, you'll have been disappointed. That was because until now, #gandi was a private channel, protected with a password and used only by Gandi staff to discuss top secret plans to take over the world and other important things.

That's about to change!

Welcome to #gandi

We've moved our internal discussion to a different channel and removed the password: #gandi is now open to all! \o/

If you already have an IRC client installed, click here, or configure it manually using the information below:

Port: 6667 (SSL Port: 6697)
Channel: #gandi

People who don't have an IRC client installed can use Freenode webchat.

Not an official support channel

IRC has never been an official way of contacting our support team, though you will often find Gandi developers and support agents there, as well as a contingent of helpful Gandi customers and friends. It's a great way to get a quick answer to general questions and status checks.

If you're able to solve your problem thanks to the people in this channel, great! Otherwise, the only official way to get help is to open a ticket or contact us via live chat from within your account.

For more information, including channel guidelines, see the Gandi community repo on GitHub.

We <3 Freenode

Freenode is an IRC network providing discussion facilities for the Free and Open Source Software communities, not-for-profit organizations, and related communities.

We embrace the Freenode culture, and we're proud to provide their domain names and SSL certificates since 2011.

Just over a year after their release, we've upgraded our private VLAN feature to make it even easier to use.

It was already possible to create your networks and isolate your servers by configuring your systems and network interfaces manually.

Now, thanks to the new version, you can create your private networks directly from the hosting management interface in your Gandi account or with the ever-more-delightful Gandi CLI, no extra configuration needed.

To get started, just choose a data center and a name for your new private VLAN, then link private network interfaces to the servers of your choice. Interfaces and servers will be automatically configured to communicate with each other without any further setup needed on your part. By default, our platform will assign the IP addresses automatically, but you can also configure the subnet mask and gateway if you're so inclined.

One common use case for private networks is to isolate one or more public servers (for a web application, for example) from a database server or cluster, only exposing the application servers to the internet. These private interfaces can have up to 200 MB/s of bandwidth, making private connections much faster than public ones.

The PVLAN feature is available at no additional charge.

Get started with your first PVLAN today with these tutorials on our wiki:

If you have questions, let us know.

Enjoy, and don't hesitate to send us your feedback on this new feature!

Three more new gTLDs are entering the GoLive phase: .eus, .ltda, and .soy.

The first of these, .eus, is the official Basque-language extension. The .ltda extension is a new TLD intended for companies in Latin America (for now Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Colombia) operating as a Sociedad or Compañía de Responsabilidad Limitada or as a Sociedade Limitada who can provide their business license number. Finally, .soy, for Vegans, East Asian cuisine and existential questions in Spanish, is also entering the GoLive phase.

The list is below, accompanied by the corresponding GoLive prices of a one-year registration, all at A rates:

We have updated following today's announcement of the GHOST vulnerability. This newly-discovered flaw is in the popular glibc library, which is used in many Linux distributions and different flavors of Unix. The newly-discovered flaw, which has been present since November 2000, enables an attacker to execute code remotely on a vulnerable system.

We recommend that you upgrade your servers immediately. The following patches have already been made available by the distribution teams:

We will keep this list and our mirrors up-to-date as more affected distributions release their fixes.

If you are a Simple Hosting customer, we recommend that you restart your instance.
