"Top" is the pronunciation of the Chinese word for "breakthrough," but of course it's also the English word for the highest point, the apex, the pinnacle of something. Like being at the top of one's game, the top of the market, you know, the kind of position you'll be in after you break through.
Good news for breakthroughs and those already on top, then, because .top domains are on sale until the end of this year for creations and renewals. Though they normally cost $27.37 for one year at A rates, you can register one for just $1.99 (also at A rates). Renewals, normally $27.37 will be available for $9.00 per year.
Good news for infomaniacs! The .info extension is on sale!
Infomania is a compulsion to constantly verify and collect information often using the Internet. While sure, it must have existed in past centuries and millennia, infomania strikes us as a uniquely modern obsession to which we all sometimes succumb.
Quick: what's your best friend from elementary school's Facebook status? Who was Philip Barton Key? What's the phone number of the nearest Mexican restaurant? How long would it take to drive to Yosemite from your house? If you can't help but look these things up, then you too might have infomania.
For all things info, there's .info, available until the end of the year, December 31, 2015, for 40% off: that's $9.93 for a one-year registration instead of $16.55 at A rates.
A promotion on .cat domains, the TLD for Catalonia*, also has us excited for other reasons too.
When studies revealed that rodents infected with Toxoplasmosis gondii (n.b. that's gondii not Gandi), a parasite which may be spread by cats, may be attracted to cat odors rather than repelled as was the case with uninfected control subjects, the media was quick to suppose the parasite could have the same effect in humans and invented "Crazy cat lady syndrome," to explain why some of us just can't help but love cats.
Of course, there's no such syndrome. It turns out that cats infect us with love without resorting to parasitical proxies. And you don't need to look far on the Internet to see why. Normally expressing your cat love with a .cat domain for one year is $13.00 at A rates but from June 8 until September 1 (recently extended!), you can get one for half-price: $6.50.
We're happy to present a new promo for 40% off on the ever-popular .me. From now until the end of 2015, you can register your .me domain at $14.40 instead of the usual $24 at A rates (new one-year registrations only).
As you surely know, .FR finally switched to multi-year registration on March 30th.
For those of you that are unaware, before that date, a .FR domain could only be registered for one year at a time. Currently, like the large majority of extensions, a .FR domain can be registered for up to 10 years.
In order to celebrate this very good news, during the entire month of May, we are providing you with a promo of .FR domains for 5 years or more, with a yearly price of €9 excl. VAT versus the usual €12 under A rates. For a .FR domain registered for 10 years, for example, this would come to €90 instead of €120 excl. VAT. Note that this promo is only valid for A and B rates.
And for those that already have their .FR domain, if you want to renew it for 5 or more years, you can use the promo code FR5PLUS which will give you a 10% discount on the total price.
Of course these two promos are ALSO valid for the domains of the French overseas departments and territories: .RE (Reunion Island), .YT (Mayotte), .WF (Wallis and Futuna), .TF (French Southern and Antarctic Lands) et .PM (Saint Pierre and Miquelon).
