Tomorrow is .xyz’s 3rd anniversary, and we’re going to be celebrating the special day in style, just as the most popular new domain in the world should. Millions of .xyz domains have been registered in over 230 countries, and leaders, creators, and innovators from every industry have joined the #GenXYZ movement to make .xyz the go-to domain for the next generation of internet users. From industry icons like Deloitte (Exponentials.xyz and FutureFin.xyz) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Engine.xyz), to innovators like Starship.xyz, the next big thing is always happening on a .xyz domain.
That’s why today marks a new dawn for the internet, and a paradigm shift to .xyz. You’ve no doubt seen the cryptic messages that have taken over XYZ’s social media pages (and a few of our partners’ pages as well), and today the meaning of AYDACFU has officially been revealed: All Your Domains Are Come From Us. This is not only a celebration of .xyz’s success to date, but a statement of its future direction, and the direction for new internet users. You want a website to host your personal blog? Get YourName.xyz. Looking to bring your business online to the massive internet marketplace? Secure YourBrand.xyz. Ready to share your world-changing idea with an international audience? Grab YourIdea.xyz in one of 200+ languages. No matter who you are or what you want to do with your site, ALL YOUR DOMAINS ARE COME FROM US.
But .xyz isn’t just the perfect domain for right now, it’s also equipped for the future of internet. Rising new internet technologies have created unmet demands that businesses are seeking to fill. That’s why XYZ has partnered with registrars like Uniregistry, GoDaddy, and Name.com to introduce a new paradigm of innovation on the internet, called the 1.111B® Class. Starting today, all 1.111 billion 6-digit, 7-digit, 8-digit, and 9-digit numeric .xyz domains will retail for $0.99 per year, every year to register, renew, and transfer at participating registrars.
This first-of-its-kind segment of domains are ideal as an inexpensive platform for Internet of Things device connectivity, vanity identification, digital currencies, and any other creative uses #GenXYZ can think of. With no minimum or maximum registration requirement, the 1.111B® Class is flexible enough to serve in individual uses like app testing (e.g. 0000001.xyz) or as a VoIP number (e.g. 9998422.xyz), or in sequential blocks to pair with serial numbers (e.g. 12300000.xyz – 12399999.xyz).
And, seeing as thousands of numeric .xyz domains are already being exchanged, the 1.111B® Class also make perfect sense as tradeable assets or tools for digital currency economies. Its newly reduced $0.99 transfer fee also allows more 1.111B® Class domains to enter circulation with nominal acquisition and carry costs. Read our CEO’s in-depth thoughts on this topic on his official blog.
In the coming weeks, the #XYZsquad will be out in the wild spreading the word about AYDACFU and the 1.111B® Class to the masses, so follow us on Twitter (@XYZ), Instagram (@XYZ) and Facebook (/XYZ) for the first word on all of the exciting events we have planned!
To learn more about the 1.111B® Class, read the white paper and our official press release. Then, start searching for your favorite numbers, dates, and patterns in our new 1.111B search tool.
The next generation of the internet is here – don’t miss your chance to be a part of the revolution. And remember: ALL YOUR DOMAINS ARE COME FROM US.
