.xyz has seen enormous success in just our first week of being live. We have become the #1 new domain extension, and we owe it all to the support from YOU and all of our early adopters. We appreciate and give thanks to YOU, the registrant. We positioned .xyz to be the first affordable and truly generic domain extension, and with your help, we have now successfully created Generation XYZ®. Our goal – to enable entrepreneurship and innovation for the next generation of internet users – is being realized through YOUR ideas and websites.

We have seen literally hundreds of .xyz websites pop up in this first week, and we are in the process of creating a section on gen.xyz to showcase your creations! It is interesting to see registrants from every country and interest now use .xyz as a platform to innovate. Let’s look at some examples below:

Vij.com is transitioning to Vij.xyz (notice that they have put Vij.com up for sale)

Vij is now .xyz!

Some encouraging words from a believer:
“I purchased close to 50 .xyz names and counting. I truly believe in something really big here. You allowed for great names by everyone to register and I’d like to thank you. When watching your videos it only makes me believe more. You’re an innovator and a true winner!”

These are just a few of the highlights from the past week. There are countless individuals and businesses that are using their shorter, more memorable .xyz domain names to be found online, and we expect thousands more to pop up over the coming weeks.

.xyz is the platform for every internet user to develop or upgrade their online presence with the perfect domain name. It can be used by anyone in the world for any purpose, and the examples above are just a taste of what’s to come. As more .xyz websites come online, we will continue to showcase some of our favorites on our blog, as well as on ceo.xyz.
