BIG NEWS, #GenXYZ! .College, our second ever domain is now available to register by anyone. After a six month long university-exclusive registration period where some of the most prestigious educational institutes in the US and UK secured their domains, .College is now open for all.

That puts .rent and .College in both of their Early Access Periods, which is a special 7 day priority registration period where those early adopters and fast actors have the chance to get the domain names they want at a premium price.

ICANN GDD Summit in Santa Monica

Clearly, the new domains space is growing. Celebrating this growth and collaborating on ways to make the internet an even better place, ICANN (the organization behind the entire internet naming system) hosted its inaugural Global Domains Division Summit earlier this month. Everyone from Team XYZ participated in the Summit, including several members of the #XYZsquad!

The Summit brought together the players in new domains to discuss and jointly improve the industry. With so many of our business partners spread across the globe, it was great to have face-to-face time and show them what Silicon Beach is all about.

Following the Summit – in typical XYZ fashion – we hosted a night to remember for all of the attendees to unwind from the productive week. Curious to catch a glimpse of the XYZ Silicon Beach Party? Check it out in our clip here:



Even though we distracted you with awesome party pics and flips, we know you’re still thinking about how you can get Early Access to your .College and .rent domains. To learn more, visit and for details.
