Get a customized domain for your blog, on sale at $12 per year.
Blogs are so ubiquitous these days, we've started to take them for granted. But when blogs first came out they were a big deal. Blogs made it possible to publish things online without having to write out the HTML (or other code) and upload directly to a server using FTP.
With a blog you can sign in, type right into your web browser, and publish with a single click. It didn't just make the web easier, it opened up a whole world to the technically inexperienced masses.
And that's why it's a big deal that as for today, .blog, the blog-oriented new TLD, is open to the masses too: it has now entered the GoLive phase. You can now get your .blog for just $38.35 per year at A rates*.
You're already entitled to a ten-day free trial on Simple Hosting, and when you register your .blog domain at Gandi, we'll give you a promo code for 50% off a one-year subscription.

Yes! Blogosphere rejoice! It’s here! Starting August 18, 2016 at 8:00 AM PDT, .blog, the most blogorrific TLD enters the Sunrise phase.
This means if you have a TMCH claim, you can order your .blog domain at Sunrise prices and get it immediately. In the Sunrise phase, .blog domains cost $200.60* per year at A rates. The Sunrise phase will close on October 17 at 7:58 AM PDT.
But you can also join the blogorama and order your .blog either in the Landrush or the GoLive phase. What’s the difference? The Landrush phase starts November 2 at 7:00 AM PDT and goes until November 9 at 6:58 AM PDT and domains will cost $200.60 per year at A rates. So while they’re pricier, the Landrush phase is earlier. If you’re concerned about the availability of your blogtastic .blog and you can front the extra cash, get it in Landrush.
Otherwise, GoLive starts November 21 at 8:00 AM PDT for $38.35 per year at A rates.
While .blog is still in Sunrise, you can place your order in either Landrush or GoLive and we’ll place the order automatically once the appropriate phase officially starts.
