  • “I chose .XYZ for my artwork website as for me it was a perfectly logical and easy to remember domain suffix. It also sounds pretty cool.” – Adam Latham,
  • “When you work on web3 products, only XYZ domains count. The first step of a web3 company branding to illustrate the knowledge of the space is to get the right domain. Finally able to get ‘e1’ at a fair price sealed it for us.” – Charles Lee, Co-founder
  • “The decision was based on a combination of factors. One, it resonated with us because of its simplicity, just like the alphabet with ABC and XYZ. Secondly, the .xyz extension perfectly aligns with our product, which operates in the 3D space, where each element has x, y, and z coordinates. And, opting for .xyz provided us with a wider range of options and a clearer namespace.” – Jason Toff, Co-Founder
  • “To us, xyz stands as a subtle rebellion against the status quo. While it’s equally (if not more) memorable than a legacy TLD, it also conjures feelings of mystery, excitement and innovation. Additionally, being at the end of the alphabet it has a similar feeling of finality that you might find in the phrase “qed”.” – Alex Fine, CEO
  • “.xyz is the domain of a new generation and new technologies. It’s where everything interesting is happening. .Com is like your father’s Oldsmobile. When people see .xyz, it’s an immediate clue that you’re doing something cutting edge, not just technically but culturally.” – Chris Heatherly, CEO
