Today we're having fun with jargon because of three TLDs entering the GoLive phase for communities that like to abbreviate.

First, the TLD just for fen, .fans, is entering the GoLive phase. Whether you're a trufan, a neofan, a faned, an apahack or just a Jophan, .fans is the TLD for any and all fanac, whether that's publishing the online version of your new ish, or organizing for the next con, this TLD is for you, whether or not you grok what we're saying.

For you mundanes out there, you don't have to be seriously into fandom for this extension. Today, it's open to all, so if there's something you love—whatever you love—show say it proudly with a .fans domain.

Next,  .mba is also entering GoLive, which in itself is shorthand, of course, for Masters of Business Administration. We don't have such a degree so we don't know for sure, but it seems part of the curriculum must be learning different acronyms. We can only assume the justification is to save time in the end. Besides CEO, CFO, CTO, CMO and COO, don't forget ABC, ETA, KPI, ROI, and the other TLD entering GoLive today: .fyi—the perfect TLD to get the word out with.

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

  • .fans: $102.97
  • .fyi: $27.05
  • .mba: $41.41

The final Donuts name collision EAP release is, in it's way, a kind of send off: Travel.

This category is all about seeing the world, having adventures, meeting people, and of course, buying things.

Of course, you can now do all of that now online, and so how fitting that it's this week's category! You can see the world on Google Images, you can have adventures virtually, you can meet people in chatrooms and you can buy whatever you want online.

And what better souvenir of this kind of online armchair tourism than a Travel domain name?

Here's the release schedule for this category:

    Day 1 (September 2, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667

    Day 2 (September 3, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$4,222
    Day 3 (September 4, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$1,778
    Day 4 (September 5, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$945
    Days 5-7 (September 6-September 7, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$189

And here's the list of TLDs with links to the new names being released (along with the regular price once the EAP is over):

Bon voyage!

The all-organic*, 100% natural** .BIO domains are here! No seriously, this is one healthy top-level domain, and you have had access since August 2014. It's ok if you didn't know how healthy you could make your web site until now. No need to feel guilty. In fact, now until the end of October is the perfect time to make the change to a healtheier, more .BIO-dynamic domain, with .BIO domains available at 40% off. That's just $38.38 instead of $63.96 at A rates!

South Africa is a country after our hearts. It seems like South Africa is showing up everywhere. Die Antwoord made a splash with their unique aesthetic only a few years ago, Trevor Noah will replace Jon Stewart on the Daily Show and it's even showing up on our wine bottles.

September is Tourism Month in South Africa, an annual celebration, and we wanted to get on board with the South Africa love and offer a promotion on three South African extensions: .capetown, for the most popular tourist city in Africa .durban, for the city whose beachfront is known as the Golden Mile and .joburg, a new global shopping capital.

Domains in these extensions will be available for one-third their normal price throughout the month of September, that is $11.59 per year (normally $35.11 at A rates) until September 30, 2015.

South Africa is a diverse and beautiful place, and is much more than the stereotypical safari imagery, so we are happy to be promoting it this month.

The national extension of Mexico, .MX, will be hanlf price throughout the month of September at Gandi.net!

Useful for sites having to do with Mexico or email servers (MX = mail server in Internetspeak), .MX domains will cost just $24.00 to create until September 30, 2015 instead of the usual $48.00, at A rates. That gives us a genius idea. A taco truck where you email or text them your order and then pick it up in five minutes. Call it TXT MX. Now if only the domain txt.mx were available ...

For some reason the Dutch seem to have a one-up on us in everything. Bicycling is ubiquitous and safe in the Netherlands. Along with bikes, windmills and canals are leading the country in being green. And speaking of green, of course, the Netherlands are also famous for their drug policy. And the crown jewel of it all is Amsterdam, with its colorful and whimsical canal-side houses and an honestly awesome-looking flag (seriously, look it up).

Now we feel like they have a one-up on us yet again with a cool new gTLD. Though last month, we celebrated the romance of New Amsterdam, now it's time for the Old World charm of .amsterdam, now available in the GoLive phase for $57.37 per year at A rates. We're tempted to make a joke about bieng like the little Dutch boy holding back the flood of registrations but .amsterdam is really just too cool for that.

This week's theme for name collision domains being released by Donuts may seem boring to some, but it has us on the dark side of the moon hearing wailing saxophones, soaring guitar solos, and of course cash register sound effects.

This week's category is for the high-fidelity, first-class-traveling set: Financial. This is for all things money, especially how you manage it.

And speaking of money, here's how the release schedule works out this week:

    Day 1 (August 26, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667

    Day 2 (August 27, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$4,222
    Day 3 (August 28, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$1,778
    Day 4 (August 29, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$945
    Days 5-7 (August 30-September 1, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$189

Click one of the links below to see the list of domains now available and if you're feeling more fiscally conservative, wait until the EAP is over and buy them for the regular prices at A rates listed to the right:

 

Only one more category to go after this one:

   September 2, 2015 : Travel (.cruises, .dating, .events, .flights, .holiday, .reisen, .singles, .vacations, .viajes, .voyage)
