11/11 marked the official launch date of XYZ‘s 1.111B® Class – a segment of 1.111 billion domains that are perfect for usage in the Internet of Things, vanity identification, digital currencies, and other creative uses. As a new variable price tier, more than 400 retail partners of XYZ can automatically support this first-of-its-kind class of domains – made up of all 6, 7, 8, and 9-digit numerics – for a recommended retail price of 99¢ per year.
The first major partnership related to the 1.111B® Class came last week at Ethereum’s DevCon3 conference, where the popular blockchain cryptocurrency announced support for users to pair their Ethereum wallets with .xyz domains for secure coin management and trading. With 99¢ annual carrying costs and flat 99¢ transaction fees, the 1.111B® Class is the first digital currency platform to be supported by a global network of registrars, with built-in security and customer support, and stability through the internet’s root DNS.
“Being connected to the internet’s DNS backbone, .xyz domains can be securely registered, managed, and traded on the most stable blockchain in existence. All domains come with locking mechanisms, transfer authorization codes, and optional WHOIS privacy to show or hide asset ownership,” said Daniel Negari, CEO of XYZ. “The 1.111B® Class makes Ethereum immediately accessible to hundreds of millions of existing domain customers, and I expect other cryptocurrencies to soon add their support.”
Thanks to early supporters like GoDaddy, Uniregistry, and Name.com, the 1.111B® Class is available to leaders, creators, and innovators in over 230 countries and territories. Since the prelaunch, 1.111B® Class domains are already being used for autonomous research (205908.xyz), advanced networking (205777.xyz), and calendar milestones (20380119.xyz). With no minimum or maximum registration requirements, domains may also be registered as needed for app testing, vanity VoIP numbers, identification numbers, zip codes, or in sequential blocks to match serial numbers.
