As an industry-leading registry operator, .xyz has spent quite a bit of time prepping for anything that might go wrong in a namespace that’s as popular as we’ve become. So even though we’re busy promoting the next big thing, we’ve been just as proactive behind the scenes to monitor and block spam, plus other forms of abuse.
Sure, ICANN requires all registries to do some self-monitoring. But at .xyz, we have taken things waaay further by not only securing partnerships and direct data feeds from some of the world’s most trusted anti-spam and anti-malware providers, but we’ve taken our innovation skills to the max by developing our own in-house abuse technology – all in an effort to protect internet users everywhere.
So what kind of voodoo magic are we doing behind our shiny purple logo? In short, we’re proactively tracking down spam, analyzing it in a heartbeat, then promptly blocking any domain that we confirm is a source of abuse. We can ramble all day about this, but it’s probably just easier to check out our Acceptable Use and Anti-Abuse Policy for more info on what will get someone canned.
We’ve promised to bring innovation to the internet and we’re delivering in a big way. Whether you have a .xyz website or are one of the millions of people who visit one, rest assured that you’ll be safe in our namespace.
