1.5 million, baby

14 years after Gandi's humble beginning in a cramped Parisian apartment, we have just registered our 1,500,000th domain.

It's a symbolic milestone in this period of turmoil. With the opening of the new gTLDs, you'll be able to register over 700 TLDs at Gandi by the end of the year.

Gandi passes the 1.5 million domain mark

Back in 2000, Gandi only offered .com, .org, and .net domains, at the price of 12 € per year. That was equal to $11 at the time, which is about $16.32 in today's dollars. (Our price for a .com domain today is 12,54 EUR/15.50 USD.)

It wasn't until 2005 that we added .fr, .be and .eu, quickly followed by .us, .re, .mobi, .co.uk, .ch and .li.

Before we knew it, it was 2012 and we were offering 250 TLDs.

Now, here we are in 2014 at this new milestone (and 376 TLDs at the time of this writing). We're so pleased to celebrate it with you, our incredible customers! You continue to amaze us every day, and we love you. Yes, you.

Any guesses as to the TLD of the 1.5 millionth domain? There might just be a Gandi shirt in it for you...
