Today, May 3rd, is World Press Freedom Day, an international celebration created and organized by the United Nations.
Each year, there’s a theme, and this year’s theme is one we can especially get behind. Of course, being the UN it’s not as short and snappy as we’d like, but “Freedom of Information and Sustainable Development, Protecting press freedom from censorship and surveillance overreach and Ensuring safety of journalists online and offline,” is certainly something we care about at least as much as freedom of the press in general. The freedom of information and the independence of the press are two things we think are necessary in the kind of world we want to help build.
This month, to participate in the celebrations we’re offering a promotion on .press domains. From May 3, 2016 until June 3, 2016, domains in the .press TLD will be available for $5.00 per year each (They normally go for $94.97 per year at A rates). So do your part to promote freedom of the press with a .press domain this month.
