Gandi is pleased to contribute to #hack4good 0.6: The planet's biggest ever global hack against climate change!
Today, Gandi wants you to know about the Internet Slowdown, which is a part of the Battle for the Net. This action today is to call attention to the fact that the FCC is considering rules that will make it easier for big cable services like Verizon and Comcast to charge content providers for "fast lanes." It's a fast lane for those who pay up, and everyone else goes slow.
We will also be at #hack4good this weekend in San Francisco, making a difference for climate change.
The month of September is a busy one for new Top-Level domains in Europe, with the GoLive of .LONDON, .PARIS, .BZH, .BRUSSELS, .VLAADEREN, .COLOGNE, .KOELN and more. The US will have its share of fun, with some Western-style domains like .VEGAS, .RODEO, .HORSE, and .FISHING all going live, and of course that's not all...
A new promotion on .MX is also available this month - don't miss out on huge savings there.
We have enhanced our US operations to give you better support in western time zones, and to smooth out billing for US and Canadian customers.
This is also the last month you can take advantage of an incredible 50% off on .US!
Simple Hosting gets more useful this month, with an updated version of the WordPress installation tutorial to celebrate the release of WordPress 4.0! As you have come to expect, at the end of this newsletter you will find a roundup of current promotions available on Gandi.net.
A lot of people are aware that the FCC has proposed new rules that eviscerate what was known as Net Neutrality. Were you aware that if enacted, these rules will slow the internet down for almost everyone in the USA? We have a chance to do something about it on September 10!
WordPress 4.0 was just released. To celebrate, we're offering a free month of Simple Hosting!
Gandi is adding the ability to process payments from US customers in the US. We are also expanding our US support team.
Note: We apologize in advance for the atrocio.us attempts at wordplay to come in the following paragraphs. There are six categories of humor we don't do, and patriotic humor is one of them. You have been warned. -Ed.
It's July, and as part of our war on sunburns, we feel it's our duty to give you some reasons to spend some time indoors. Remember that the soft glow of your computer monitor won't cause any forms of cancer we're aware of, whereas the sun is totally trying to kill you. A little climate control never hurt anybody! Statistically, you're 78% less likely to be eaten by a carcajou if you stay inside, preferably near a device that would allow you to register domain names (should you be so inclined). And that's a fact. We commissioned a study.
It has been eight years since we started selling t-shirts to benefit Gandi's supported projects, and we're betting on our customers' inexhaustible love of Gandi apparel once again. Today, we're announcing a brand new, special-edition series of shirts: it's two of your favorite logos in one!

Last month, we reached a new milestone: 1.5 million domain names
registered at Gandi. Can you imagine? If you wrote each domain name on
an elephant and stacked the elephants on top of each other, you could
reach the moon!*
That number has been on the rise for 14 years straight, and there are no signs of it slowing down anytime soon, especially with all the new gTLDs coming out. Below, you'll find a calendar of this month's new extensions.
The .CO registry has a great deal during April and May, and new .CO registrations are 75% this week only.
It has been a very busy last few weeks in terms of security. You'll find the details below.
Finally, we'll summarize the current promotions available at Gandi.
14 years after Gandi's humble beginning in a cramped Parisian apartment, we have just registered our 1,500,000th domain.
Wondering what we do with the money we'd otherwise be spending on ads?
Achievement unlocked: 50,000 websites are powered by Simple Hosting!
The Donuts registry, one of the most important in the world of new gTLDs, has put in place a somewhat unique Landrush system which we have decrypted in this post for your reading pleasure.
Are you lost in the jungle of new TLDs? This post will show you the way, and lay out what you can expect in the near future and in the long term.
Note: there is an update to this now-outdated post here.
