XYZ highlights from the 2023 Global Domains Report

Registrar InterNetX and domain name marketplace Sedo have recently released the Global Domain Report 20235, a yearly in-depth analysis of the domain industry. This report provides insights into the latest developments, tendencies, and trends of the domain industry, and it’s exciting to see that XYZ domains are becoming increasingly prevalent in the reports each year.

Here are some of the top .xyz mentions in the 2023 Global Domains Report:

  • Industry highlights include XYZ’s acquisition of 11 new gTLDs in 2022: .Game, .Pics, .LOL, .Mom, .Diet, .Audio, .Christmas, .Flowers, .Hosting, .Guitars, and .Lat
  • The report shows that .xyz dominates the #1 new gTLD spot with almost twice the market share of the second most popular domain extension, accounting for 14.6% of all new gTLD registrations.
  • 4.4% of all domains registered with new gTLDs redirect to .xyz domains, according to information provided by It is shown that .xyz is the only new gTLD in the top 5 TLDs (among .com, .uk, .de, and .org) that new gTLD registrations redirect to.
  • .xyz ranks in the top 10 TLDs for market share in 10 out of 15 global regions analyzed, alongside legacy TLDs like .com, .net, and .org.
  • According to the charts in the report, 8-year-old .xyz is the 2nd most popular TLD in Japan (half as popular as 37-year-old .com), and 3rd most popular TLD in Egypt.
  • .xyz made history as the first new gTLD to make it into the top 10 of the most frequently sold TLDs in the aftermarket, according to data in the report, bypassing .io, a ccTLD historically popular with pioneers in the tech industry.
  • In a statement of opinion, an author of the report shows surprise about their findings that many of the top 10 public .xyz sales are existing companies adopting .xyz as a rebranding strategy. However, this is no surprise to us at XYZ, knowing that .xyz is the most popular new gTLD in use today among infinitely diverse industries and individuals.

Words from #GenerationXYZ: – $1,300 (MSRP) Registration

“Your domain name is your identity on the web, and your domain extension has long been the category of that identity. Our product isn’t primarily a commercial entity or an organization, but rather a digital tool for the internet, and a .xyz domain is the only domain that we feel embodies that. We chose a .xyz domain because it’s clean, memorable, and feels very hacker-esque, and those are the exact types of feelings we want to invoke with our product.”

– John Iadeluca, CEO,
