This summer, one-click WordPress, NodeJS and promos

This past month Paul Vixie visited our office in San Francisco to talk about DNS. When he was asked what fights were worth fighting on today’s internet, he reflected on two phases in his career: the time he spent at ISC heading the organization that wrote BIND 9 and the time spent building MAPS, trying to stamp out internet abuse completely.

In the first case, he paved the way for the modern internet. In the second, he tried to hold back a growing tide of spam.

“Build roads,” he said, “don’t build walls.”

It’s good sense. It’s better to make something work than try to stop people from using something already out there. This month, we’re building roads.

We introduced One-click WordPress installations on Simple Hosting instances, for one, and released a new Node.js instance.

We also looked at Recently-delegated TLDs. We also looked into how ICANN’s nTLD program, which began with a promise to open up innumerable new namespaces, is coming along.

As always, of course, we’re summing up this month’s TLD release calendar and we rounded up all our current TLD promos for your convenience.

Paul’s words make good sense and are a good mantra to live by. And it’s a wish for the world as well. We hope this month and the rest of this year, we can all focus on building roads, not walls.

1. One-click Wordpress on Simple Hosting
The most popular CMS (content management system) in the world, WordPress, can now be installed with a single click on Gandi Simple Hosting. We created a video tutorial on how: youtu.be/n3yNr6m-F-g For the rest of the details, check out our post:

2. New Node.js instance on Simple Hosting
In the past few months we’ve been bringing you a lot of new improvements on Node.js instances. The developer ecosystem for Node.js has evolve a bit since we first introduced Node.js so we had some long overdue updates to make.
So we’re happy to have launched this month a new version of our Node.js instance designed with developers in mind. Read about what that entails: www.gandi.net/news/en/2016-06-20/8542-new_node.js_instance_on_simple_hosting/

3. Recently-delegated TLDs: July 2016
The TLDs added in June this year all seemed to have been a bit contentious, with objections for string confusion, legal use rights and one attempt to game the system represented in this past month’s delegated TLDs. Embrace the controversy: www.gandi.net/news/en/2016-07-12/8827-recently-delegated_tlds_july_2016/

4. Checking in on new TLDs
ICANN launched the nTLD program in October 2013 and a little under three years later more than a thousand new TLDs have been delegated. By the beginning of June, 20 million domains in over 1,000 nTLDs had been registered, so we thought it was as good a time as any to check in on
how things are going. Check in with us on ICANN’s nTLD program:
