.XYZ Domains are key to our growth: CentralNic CEO

In addition to domain names, he also said that acquisitions had been a key driver of growth

In an interview with Proactive, CentralNic’s CEO Ben Crawford outlined how .XYZ had been a revelation and helped boost the company’s numbers in the first half of 2016.

Crawford said :

We have six of the top 25 (domain names). Number one is .XYZ which is very well known because Google used it for Alphabet, the new parent company.

Mark Zuckerberg’s used it, the founders of Skype are using it for one of their new companies and it’s the most popular all around the world.

Crawford estimated that CentralNic had approximately a 34% market share, and added that other domain names such as .ART, .AM, .FM and .CX will be introduced by them soon, which he expects will further boost revenues.
