1. Idea

.xyz global

Founder Daniel Negari purchased XYZ.com with the intention of building a complete web experience where businesses and individuals could register domains, build their website, and manage online assets. XYZ.com went on to become an ICANN–accredited registrar that was also approved by Verisign and PIR to sell .com, .net, and .org domains. While building the XYZ.com experience, ICANN announced their intent to implement a new generic domain extension program. This opportunity pivoted the company to be a registry.

What is Generation XYZ®?

(We are the next generation of the internet)

Generation XYZ® is everyone. It combines Generations X, Y, and Z to create a whole new generation inspired by the internet and its limitless potential. .xyz is one of the first unrestricted platforms for people all over the world to share their passions, cultivate knowledge, and express themselves.

What generation are you?

(For those of you on the cusp)

Generation X

1960-1980

Named after Douglas Coupland’s novel Generation X: Tales from an Accelerated Culture, this is the first generation to grow up amidst digital technology. These overly-educated Gen Xers have been represented by the likes of Kevin Smith, Quentin Tarantino, and Steven Soderbergh. They grew up eager to create change through social institutions, rather than in spite of them. With .xyz, Gen Xers will be able to continue spreading their message in a way that is both new and familiar.

Generation Y

1977-2004

Also known as the Millennial Generation, Generation Y is all about interaction. As a group constantly sharing, streaming, and updating, Ys are heavily influenced by MTV and digital technology. With icons like Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan, this generation has been raised to dream big, making .xyz the perfect stage to share their stories.

Generation Z

Early 2001-Present

The Pluralist Generation is growing up in a diverse, fragmented world, held together only by the constant communication provided through the internet. Always connected, they’ve never known a world without smart phones, computers and the web. Z’s are truly digital natives, and .xyz will be the platform leading them into the next generation of the internet.
