Lines are great. On a map, they draw the boundary between two cities, two states, or two countries. At the store or a concert or the bank, it’s how we wait. You can line up, you can be out of line, over the line, or in line and you can of course also be .online.
From May 15 through May 30, 2016, .online is available for just $4.99. Normally .online domains are $29.99 at A rates. That’s six for the price of one.
So get in line and get .online while you still can.
From March 1 through March 31, 2016 at 11:59 PM UTC, .online domains will be available for just $4.99 per year.
We made our first steps online almost fifty years ago now with the birth of Arpanet, and since then, we have steadily increased our online activity. Now you can shop online, buy online, bank online and pay taxes online.
We each have online profiles, an online presence, those of us who are single date online, we find our homes online and the furniture to furnish them and then sit in them streaming movies online, gaming online and gambling online.
The Internet of Things will bring our refrigerators and bookshelves and pets online and one glorious day in the near future a USB-to-IV-drip device will be invented to inject nutrients into our bloodstreams at a rate of 480 megabits per second.
We have come so far online but there so much further to advance into that bright online future.
Normally, .online domains go for $12.00 per year at A rates, so this is the perfect chance to get on line with .online before that bright future comes ... well, online.
There's now a dividing line slicing right through the heart of our existence. It's the line between here and there, public and private, anonymous and nonymous (we guess?) online and offline.
Dividing and slicing and cutting is all well and good but we like to bridge. So starting December 15, 2015 and lasting until 3:59 PM PST on January 14, 2016 (bridging the new year), .online, the ideal TLD for bridging that divide between offline and online, is on sale for 80%-offfor first-year domain creations.
That means we put a line right through the normal price of $51.67 per year at A rates for .online domains: for the next month they'll be just $10.33 for first-year creations.
Cyber Monday is the day we all forego watching cat videos and posting clever status updates to social media to deflate our productivity at work to do something that actually contributes to our countries' GDP by buying shoes online.
So, on that note, we have some good news! Gandi is having a cyber-themed Cyber Monday with promotions on .online, .tech, .site and .website domains.
Domains in the .online and .tech TLDs will be on sale for just $4.00 per year (try finding a pair of shoes that inexpensive. On second thought, for your feet's sake, maybe don't). Domains in the .site and .website TLDs will be priced even lower at $1.00 per year.
Don't miss out on your chance to spend some more company time and spend some (but very little) of the cash your company pays you to do so shopping this Cyber Monday. This sale starts November 27th (Black Friday) and only lasts until November 30th at 4:00 PM PST (so you can get some actual work done that last hour before Happy Hour).
Ever since .online came online, people have been lining up to take advantage of the promotion that's been live since GoLive on this TLD which saw domains in this extension normally priced at $51.67 at only $12.49 per year at A rates.
Note: from November 10, 2015 until November 16, 2015 at 3:59 PM PST, .online domains will be as cheap as $4.99 per year at A rates. [This "double promo" has ended, but .online domains are still on sale at $12.49 through the end of November.]
In the beginning, there was just one line. And you were either on it or off it. Then, with telephones, you could start connecting lines, and modems starting bringing us all online and what used to be one line became a web. Today there are literally millions of criss-crossing, intersecting "lines." It's harder now to be offline than online.
Online dating, for example, has been a favorite subject of sensationalized media for upwards of twenty years now but how many relationships don't have an online component? How many partners never send each other emails or tag each other in social media posts? The number is dwindling by the day.
And you don't have to work remotely anymore to work online. In some places, the virtual office space is larger than the real one.
Which is why there's no better time to be .online.
For this GoLive, we're bringing .online online with a sweet promotion: .online domains will be discounted to $12.49per year at all rates from 9:00 AM PDT on August 26, 2015 until 2:00 PM PDT October 25, 2015, at which point .online domains will go back up to their normal price of $51.67 per year (at A rates).
We probably don't need to tell you that we feel the one place chock-full of raw potential, new thoughts, and continuous invention is the online world, and .online aims to create a space on the web for those looking to set up their presence in this exciting space. That goes for you whether you are a high-powered financier, an awkward adolescent, a huge multi-national corporation, or a tiny country school, from creators to searchers to educators and everyone else.
