Registry claims to be the world’s most popular new domain as it showcases adoption in over 220 countries in 2 years
.XYZ celebrated its 2 Year Anniversary today on June 2nd 2016. Many registrars worldwide, including Namecheap, Uniregistry, ResellerClub and GoDaddy, are all offering .xyz domains starting at 2¢ today and 22¢ for the remainder of June in honor of the domain’s second birthday.
As the domain ending for every website, everywhere, .xyz has been adopted by individuals and businesses from around the world. Best known use cases include Alphabet, Google’s parent holding company (Abc.xyz), HBO’s “Silicon Valley” (Hooli.xyz), Deloitte (Exponentials.xyz), Rx Networks (Fathom.xyz), and Image Publishing’s “Gadget Magazine” (GadgetDaily.xyz). In all, the registry claims that over 3 million .xyz domains have been registered in over 220 countries.
Daniel Negari, CEO of XYZ said:
.xyz gives entrepreneurs and startups an international platform to innovate online. As the ending of the alphabet, .xyz has become the natural go-to domain ending for the next generation of internet users. To further our mission of creating choice and competition, our retail partners are hosting one of the biggest sales in internet history so that anyone can register TheirName.xyz, TheirBusiness.xyz, or even thousands of Keywords.xyz to build an enterprise for an unprecedented price.
The company’s anniversary follows the news of .xyz successfully passing ICANN technical testing for the Chinese market, paving the way to be one of the first registries outside of China to become accredited. Once accredited, registrants in China will be able to host websites on their .xyz domains.
