Today, XYZ announced the acquisition of .Storage, the tenth domain extension to be added to our growing portfolio. We will be launching .Storage this fall as an unrestricted premium namespace for the physical storage and data storage industries.
.Storage will give all businesses and individuals the opportunity to secure short and brandable industry-specific domains to establish their online presence, much like .xyz gives the next generation of internet users the opportunity to brand themselves on a memorable and global domain.
And, like XYZ’s other domain extensions, .Security, Protection, .Theatre, .Cars, .Car, and .Auto, all .Storage domains will be available for one flat price. So one-character domains, two-character domains, premium keyword names, and even URLs like Data.Storage and Cloud.Storage, which were previously priced as premiums for $100,000 each, will now be made available for hand registration for the same price as any other .Storage domain.
Here’s what Daniel had to say about the .Storage acquisition in his blog post:
“The success of the entire XYZ portfolio, anchored by .xyz, has led to an excess of cash flow for us to further our mission of bringing choice and innovation to the internet. Thanks to the end users who have adopted .xyz in over 230 countries, our registration and renewal rates have exceeded even my own expectations. We have reinvested these funds to grow .xyz further: through hackathon sponsorships for underprivileged youth, meetings with startups and press outlets at events like TechDay LA, and website design contests with General Assembly and GoDaddy.” – Daniel Negari, CEO, XYZ
We also have some BIG plans ahead as we near our 3rd anniversary in just over a month. Be sure to mark June 1st on your calendars, and check www.gen.xyz/AYDACFU to find out all the details!
