Every four years, the world’s greatest contestants come together in a thrilling display of athletic ability, sportsmanship, and unity. Whether you’re in sunny Rio or enjoying a caipirinha from the comfort of your own home, the Olympic games are sure to attract spectators from all around the globe. Here at XYZ, we enjoy the friendly competition and plan on having every TV in the office stream all of the different events.
The Olympics brings together people of all different countries, backgrounds, and upbringings. Whether you throw the javelin or you swim 5,000 meters daily, top athletes from all over the world dedicate their lives to be the best. This spirit of competition is the driving force behind innovation. Like the Olympics, #GenXYZ is a community of innovators that spans across oceans and continents. This is possible because .xyz truly is an international domain extension. We have been adopted in 230 different countries as the go-to domain that transcends language barriers.
In every region of the world, #GenXYZ has been hard at work getting their message out there – so we’ll pass the torch to some .xyz sites from every continent that we think are worth cheering for this summer.
