Register an .XYZ Domain

The .XYZ Domain

The .XYZ domain is one of the first domain suffixes, that have been released under the new nTLD program announced by ICANN. The goal of the program is to extend the number of domain suffixes and simplify the process of approval and implementation. The closely watched registration of the new .XYZ domain was launched for the general public on the 2nd of June 2014. It was accompanied by an extensive campaign. 

The beginnings of the .XYZ domain were successful. It has been the most popular and registered of the new domain suffixes for a long time. At the turn of 2016/2017, there were almost 6,8 million registered .XYZ domains. Many of them were given as a part of free advertising campaigns. Anyone who wanted to try an .XYZ domain for their website could get it for free for one year.

The further new domain suffixes were coming gradually and the big boom started to fade out. In 2018, the number of registered .XYZ domains dropped below 2 million. Nowadays, however, we can see the world’s growing interest in new domain suffixes, and the .XYZ domain is not an exception. The number of registered .XYZ domains grew gradually and exceeded 3,4 million at the end of 2020.

The .XYZ domain is currently the second most popular of the new domain suffixes in the world. It is the most popular in China, where  46 % of .XYZ domains are registered, followed by the USA with almost 17 %, Turkey with 7 %, India with 4 %, and Vietnam with 3 %.

In the Czech Republic, the .XYZ domain is the sixth most popular of the new domain suffixes.

Who is Behind .XYZ Domains

The domain is owned by XYZ.COM LLC., the only company, that was interested in it. Thanks to this fact, they were able to get and launch it so quickly. In marketing, the domain is defined as a domain of the Generation XYZ. This means that it combines the content for Generations X, Y, and Z. The company A XYZ.COM is known mainly for its creative marketing events, that we like to visit.

The British company Central Nic is in charge of the technical background. It is the longest-running operator of domain registries in the world. For example, CentralNic also takes care of the .sk domain.

WEDOS is a direct registrar. We send all requests directly to CentralNic. There is no mediator between us. We have a contract with both CentralNic and Radix FZC. We are able to solve any potential problems very quickly and right there, where it is needed.

Why We Offer .XYZ Domains

The .XYZ domain was one of the first of the new domain suffixes. Each of us has probably come across (at least marginally) foreign advertising campaigns associated with the launch of the new domain suffixes. In 2014 there weren’t too many new domain suffixes from which we could choose, so our first choice was the .XYZ domain, which has been supported by Google. They use this domain for their parent company Alphabet (abc.xyz).

Many of our customers didn’t have an .XYZ domain registered with us for long years, but had web hosting services with us. We wanted to meet their needs and allow our customers to have everything under the same roof with an ICANN accredited registry and for better prices 🙂

XYZ.COM LLC likes aggressive marketing, just like us. We agreed on many common promotional events very quickly. You can definitely look forward to some surprises from our collaboration.

Is the .XYZ domain for you?

The .XYZ domain has been created as a revolution, that has wanted to challenge the .com domain, the current leader of the market. XYZ.COM LLC has it really well thought out. You do not have to worry about typos in domains, because typos like wedos.xyz.com are redirected to wedos.xyz automatically.

Young people became the target group for the .XYZ domain. 

Domain for the Young and Productive – The concept for young and productive people, who want to be different, was ahead of their time a few years. In 2014 the .com domain was still the best and nobody thought about something different. Today, this is no longer the case. The coolest software projects are created on .io (software), .ai (artificial intelligence and machine learning), or .tech (technology) domains. If someone wants to be different in the field of art, they choose an .art domain. To stand out of a crowd and choose the domain you want for your project is being taken for granted nowadays.

An .XYZ domain offers a universal alternative to all domains. If you choose it, you will show your visitors that you are young, vital, and productive. In addition, you can include the .XYZ suffix in your logo.

Content for Generation XYZ – If your target group is Generation X, Y, and Z you can express yourself through this domain. It can be an e-shop, service, or a magazine.

Lists and Catalogues –  .XYZ is described as a universal domain but its very popular for various lists, catalogues, and statistical pages. It shows that this domain contains everything from a to xyz. It can be properly used in marketing.
