It's an unusual Donuts Tuesday in that only a single new gTLD is becoming available today: .services.
The new extension has just entered the Sunrise phase. As usual, only TMCH trademark holders can register domains during this phase, but anyone can submit a Landrush or GoLive pre-registration, which we will submit for you at the beginning of the corresponding phase.
During Sunrise, which lasts until 28 June 2014, a .services registration will cost $158.68 at A rates.
General Availability (a.k.a. GoLive) begins 9 July, after which the price of registration for a single year will cost $38.34 at A rates.
If you're really determined to get a given .services domain, but don't hold a trademark, you can register during the 3-day Landrush, which lasts from 6 to 9 July, for $178.68.
During April and May 2014, you can register a new .CO for one year for half price: $16.50 instead of the regular $33.00 at A rates.
The timing is perfect for this promo: .CO, technically the ccTLD of Colombia, is becoming increasingly popular in the tech industry as a generic extension. Google has even confirmed it will consider it as a GccTLD for the purposes of indexing and SEO [Wikipedia].
.CO domains are available to all, with no residency restrictions. For more information or to register a domain, see the .co TLD info page.
Five new gTLDs have entered Sunrise at Gandi. As usual, during this phase, only TMCH trademark holders can submit actual registrations, but anyone can submit a pre-registration for Landrush or GoLive and we'll submit it for you at the earliest possible moment. The Sunrise phase ends 14 June and GoLive begins 25 June.
Below, you'll find a list of the new extensions with a link to the pricing page, the Sunrise price and the GoLive price, all at A rates:
