Register Your .XYZ Domain

The .XYZ Domain

.XYZ is one of the first new domain extensions to be launched under the New nTLD Program announced by ICANN. The goal of the program is to expand the number of domain extensions and to simplify the process of their approval and implementation. The closely watched registration of the new .XYZ domain was launched for the general public on June 2, 2014. It was accompanied by an extensive promotional campaign.

The .XYZ launch was successful. It became the most popular and most registered of the new domain extensions for a long time. In its heyday at the turn of 2016/2017, almost 6.8 million .XYZ domains were registered. Many were given away as part of advertising campaigns for free. Anyone who wanted to try .XYZ for their website could get it for free for a year.

Gradually, other new domain extensions came and the big boom around .XYZ slowly faded away. In 2018, the number of registered .XYZ even fell below 2 million. However, it is at this time that we can see the world’s growing interest in new domain endings, and .XYZ was no exception. Their number gradually grew until at the end of 2020 it exceeded 3.4 million registered domains.

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

In the Czech Republic, .XYZ is currently the 6th most popular of the new domain extensions.

Who Is Behind the .XYZ Domain?

The domain is owned by the company XYZ.COM LLC., which was the only one interested in it. That’s also why they got it and launched it so quickly. In marketing, they refer to it as the Generation XYZ domain, meaning that it will combine content for Generation X, Y and Z. XYZ.COM is mainly known for its creative marketing events, which we are happy to participate in.

The technological background is taken care of by the British company CentralNic, which is the longest-running operator of domain registries in the world. For example, it also takes care of the Slovak domain .SK.

WEDOS is a direct registrar. We send all requests directly to CentralNic. There is no intermediary between us. We have a contract with both CentralNic and XYZ.COM. We are able to solve any possible problems directly and quickly.

Why We Offer the .XYZ Domain

The .XYZ domain was one of the first. Especially foreign advertising campaigns, associated with the launch of new domain endings, affected each of us at least marginally. In 2014, there weren’t many new domain extensions to choose from, so our first choice fell on .XYZ, which was also supported and still trusted by Google – it is used for its parent company Alphabet (abc.xyz).

Many of our customers had the .XYZ domain registered elsewhere for many years, but they had their hosting services with us. We wanted to accommodate them and thus enable our customers to have everything under one roof, with an ICANN accredited registrar and at better prices 😉

Plus, XYZ.COM LLC likes aggressive marketing, just like us. We agreed very quickly on a number of joint promotional events. You definitely have something to look forward to.

Is the .XYZ Domain Right for You?

The .XYZ domain was created as a revolution that wanted to challenge the current uncompromising market leader, the .com domain. XYZ.COM LLC has it really well thought out. You don’t have to worry about misspelled domains, for example, because typos like wedos.xyz.com will automatically be redirected to wedos.xyz. The target group for the .XYZ domain became mainly young people.

 

A Domain for the Young and Productive – The concept of a domain for the young and productive who want to stand out is a few years ahead of its time. In 2014, the .com  domain was still the king and it was natural to try something different. Today, it’s different. The coolest software projects are created on the .io (software), .ai (artificial intelligence and machine learning) or .tech (technology) domains. If someone wants to distinguish themselves in art, they choose the .art domain. Stepping out of the line and choosing the domain you want for your new project is increasingly taken for granted.

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

Content for Generation XYZ – If your target audience is Generation X, Y, and Z, then you can make it known with a domain. It can be an e-shop, services or even a magazine.

Lists and Catalogs – .XYZ is written as a generic domain, but is popular for a variety of lists, catalogs, and statistics sites. It shows that everything has been tought through down to xyz. This can also be used appropriately in slogans and marketing.
