With all of the buzz we’ve been getting for having the most number of active websites, Team XYZ has also been receiving a lot of great questions about how to use your shiny new .xyz domain name.

We thought it’d be perfect to answer one of the most frequently asked questions with none other than a new edition of #WebsiteWednesday.

Resl’s work has been featured on Dezeen, Gizmodo, The New York Times, The Verge, and more. And he chose his .xyz website as the centerpiece to showcase his growing body of art.

Another popular way to use your .xyz domain name is as a custom email address that your entire family can enjoy. Just think. If a certain famous rapper registered West.xyz, he can match his daughter with Kanye@West.xyz and North@West.xyz.
