.club, one of our most popular new gTLDs, is scheduled to enter Sunrise in just a few hours.

The gates will open on Wednesday, 7 May at 7am PST (15h00 UTC).

We've found that new TLDs with this many preregistrations usually cause slowdowns and general mayhem at the registry when GoLive starts, so if you haven't yet pre-reserved your desired .club domain, we strongly encourage you to do so now! We will submit pre-registrations at the earliest possible moment, and you'll be refunded if the registration doesn't succeed.

At just $13.43 per year, .club also happens to be one of the cheapest new gTLDs on the market.


Ready to join?


New gTLDs .cool and .watch are entering the GoLive phase on Wednesday 7 May, at 8am PST (16h00 UTC), and will thus be open for registration by all.

If you're reading this before the GoLive time specified above, you can still take advantage of Landrush to secure your domain, provided you're willing to spend $139.68 for the first year's registration.

Once GoLive begins, the price for a new one-year registration of either of these extensions will be $32.49 at A rates.

Register a domain under one of these extensions?:

In Sunrise since the beginning of April, the FamousFourMedia registry's first three new extensions are now available for Sunrise registration and GoLive pre-registration. There will be no Landrush phase for these extensions, which means pre-registrations will have a very good chance of succeeding!

The Sunrise phase ends 30 May and General Availability begins 9 June. Below, you'll find the list of extensions with a link to the respective TLD info pages, the Sunrise price and the GoLive price:

Tomorrow (Tuesday, 6 May), .QPON is entering General Availability.

There was no Landrush for this extension! That means a veritable goldmine of domain names is available, beginning Tuesday 5 May at 8am PST sharp (15:00 UTC).

If you're reading this before then, and you want a .QPON domain but have not yet pre-registered, now is the time! We will submit pre-registrations at the earliest possible moment.

Pre-registrations are the same price as registrations, and you will be refunded in the event the domain cannot be successfully registered.

The price of a one-year registration or pre-registration is $19.72 at A rates.

So what are you waiting for?


[Pre]Register a .QPON:


In a way, the .NYC extension resembles the city it represents: attractive, but only welcoming if you meet its standards. In effect, this new geographic TLD is only available under certain conditions.

The Sunrise period, as usual, will only be available to those with TMCH-registered trademarks; in this case, you must also have a verifiable address in New York city. P.O. boxes don't count - you need a real street address in the city that never sleeps. 

The Sunrise will last until June 20th 2014. The price of a one-year registration during Sunrise is $66.84.

A special, secondary Sunrise phase will begin a few days later; from 25 June to 31 July, the extension will be available only to city government services.

The Landrush phase will take place from August 4th to October 3rd. During this time, registration will cost $95.34 and will be open to anyone with a valid address in the city.

General Availability will begin October 8th 2014, after which the price of a one-year registration will be $38.34.

For more information, or to register or pre-register, see the .nyc TLD info page.


If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere:


Beginning in July 2014, the price for domains under the United States' ccTLD will be raised by the registry.

Our own .US prices will be raised to reflect this increased cost: The annual registration for .US domains will be raised from $15.00 to $15.50. This will apply to registrations as well as renewals.

What that means is that now might be a good time to renew or register your .US domains. You before July first! Consider also registering them for the longest possible period (up to a maximum of 10 years) in order to take advantage of the current price.

.kiwi just entered GoLive!

The price of a one-year registration is $31.67 at A rates.

We would like to take the opportunity to remind you that in addition to being super tasty, kiwis are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, calcium, iron and folic acid. Between that and the fact that 20% of the registry's profits will be donated to Christchurch's earthquake recovery, you have no reason not to buy and/or eat at least 5 per day!

Ready to bite into a .KIWI?:


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.
