Ahoy there, #GenXYZ! (There seems to be some residual Talk Like a Pirate Day left in us.)
2014 continues to be a landmark year for the internet, with yet another HUGE milestone that we are proud to say we are part of.
Earlier this week, the internet hit the one billion website mark. One BILLION.
What was .xyz’s role in this, you ask? We first heard about this breaking news through a major outlet, which also gave .xyz an awesome shoutout. And a spot on The Washington Post! What did it say about us, #GenXYZ? The internet now has a billion websites, and “of those, domains ending in .xyz saw the greatest growth.”
So, it’s WashPost official: .xyz is seeing the greatest growth in the expansive internet universe. If you’re like us, it’s difficult to wrap your head around that big one billion number. Think about it this way. One second is easy to image – now how about one billion seconds? One billion seconds ago, it was 1983 – and that takes us aaall the way back to a time where there was no such thing as the internet.
As the number of websites keeps rising (you can check-out the live ticker at InternetLiveStats.com), so does the number of innovative new .xyz websites.
The fall has certainly kicked-off with a bang, and we have so many more exciting news to share with you, #GenXYZ! Don’t forget to follow us @xyz on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for all the nitty-gritty (and more) on us.
