.xyz is finally here! We launched yesterday morning at 9 am (PDT) and what a whirlwind it was. #GenXYZ, did you get your favorite .xyz domain names?
Thanks to all of your support and #GenXYZ love, we received over 31,000 registrations for .xyz domain names within the first 24 hours – that number makes our launch one of the most successful in internet history! We heard your flooding registrations crashed some servers – an impressive feat, we must say. But we’re so thankful and excited that everyone hung in there and got their .xyz names.
We had a little bet going on in the office to see who could most accurately guess the first day registration number, The Price is Right style. Check out this clip from our launch day to see the reveal:
Oh, and one more thing. In case you missed our tweet yesterday, check this out. Any guesses on what he could be up to?:
So marks the first day of the world with .xyz. This is just the beginning of the Generation XYZ® movement, so stay tuned by following @xyz on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and hear insights straight from the horse’s mouth at CEO and Founder Daniel Negari’s blog. Until next time, #GenXYZ.
