Our infrastructure has experienced several noticeable slowdowns today, 7 February 2014, due to an ongoing DDoS. Our teams are working to mitigate the attacks.

Updates will be provided here as the situation evolves.


A maintenance of our GandiSite platform is scheduled Thuesday February 6 between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM UTC.

During this time you will not be able to edit your site but it will remain online.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

09:39 UTC: Maintenance complete. Service has been down from 09:28:58 to 09:29:32 UTC.


It's a historic day for the internet.

As of today, Wednesday 5 February, the first new gTLDs are entering General Availability, meaning they can be purchased by anyone at regular prices.

You know what that means: it's first-come, first-served from here on out. The seven new extensions in question are as follows (accompanied by yearly registration and renewal prices at A rates):

As of right now, you can already register domains under these new gTLDs on our website.

The next set of new gTLDs entering General Availability (next Wednesday, 12 February) are the following:

You can already submit an order to register any of the seven new gTLDs above, and we'll automatically place it on your behalf when General Availability begins next week (select "Golive" from the dropdown menu). As always, we'll refund you if the domain is no longer availabile by the time the GA phase begins.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to go register all the things.


.uno and .buzz are being launched today, along with two Donuts extensions, .holiday and .marketing.

We're a little late on .uno: the Sunrise phase (which is not "first-come, first-served," as you know) is ending this week. If you have a trademark and want to register it under .uno, you have until this Friday, 7 February at 7am PST. A 30-day Landrush period will follow, lasting until General Availability begins on 19 March, 2014.

For .buzz, the Sunrise phase is underway, and will be in the Landrush phase from 18 March until 10 April, 2014. General Availability for .buzz begins 15 April.

The General Availability period for the first new TLDs is only a week away, and the rhythm of weekly Sunrise openings is in full swing. Today, the Donuts registry is offering us a bouquet of 5 new TLDs, with promises of two more next week. 

And so today, Tuesday, 28 January, we welcome our five new friends:

This particularly interesting set of extensions is already available for pre-registration (or for conversion, if you've already made pre-reservations).

Next Tuesday, the Sunrise phase will begin for the following two newcomers.

You can already pre-reserve these two new TLDs using the links above.

Rendez-vous here next Tuesday for the big day!

What now?

  • Pre-registrations can be managed from the Orders in Progress page of your Gandi account. (Pre-reservations are also on your Orders in Progress page, under the Pre-reservations tab.)
  • For more information on the new TLDs in general, see this page.
  • Questions? Ask us at @gandibar on Twitter (link opens in a new window).

Periodically, we have to do some things to the mail servers to keep them running smoothly. This is one of those ocasions, so tonight from 22h00 to 23h00 UTC, we will be working on the mail. 

We are not expecting any customer impact due to this maintenance, but we feel it is important to let our customers know what we are doing, just in case. 


As the countdown nears 0 for public availability of the first new TLDs (beginning of February), more are entering Sunrise every week.

This week, there are 8 new extensions available for pre-registration. The list is as follows:

At Gandi, .link and .education finished with the highest number of pre-reservations, followed by .camp.

This week's fun fact: .ruhr is the first new geographic TLD in Europe. Don't get too excited: it's reserved to inhabitants of the Ruhr region of Germany.

Sunrise registration is available as of today at Gandi for all of the above TLDs.
