Today marks the 6th anniversary of .xyz’s launch. We’ve had an amazing journey so far, all thanks to you, the .xyz community. We would not have come this far without you. For six years and counting, all you innovators, creatives, entrepreneurs, and leading startups have chosen .xyz. You are our inspiration. Here are a few of our team’s favorites:
The .xyz community gives us many opportunities to share success stories. We have been tracking the startups launched by those who use XYZ Registry domains, cheering along these past 12 months as they secured more than $75 million for their companies. They have been featured in the news on TechCrunch, Forbes, The Verge, CNET, and Boston Globe. We had the chance to feature 52 new and innovative .xyz case studies at length through our #WebsiteWednesday series, published each week. In the past 12 months alone we’ve discovered and shared .xyz end users over 600 times. To this hard-working and incredibly fascinating .xyz community, thank you for all of the opportunities to sing your praises.
Thanks to our partners and their customers across the globe, worldwide adoption has kept .xyz as the most popular new domain name by usage. We have seen strong adoption in major emerging internet markets like Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Vietnam. Adoption in countries with massive internet audiences like India, the United States, China, Japan, Australia, and Brazil, continues to grow.
We would not be where we are without the support and enthusiasm of our registrar partners. They have made it possible around the world for anyone to find their own .xyz. We are grateful to partners like GoDaddy, Namecheap, Dynadot, and Uniregistry, among many others, for the opportunity to spread the message that .xyz truly is for everyone, everywhere. We have you, our global .xyz community, to thank for giving us hope for a bright future full of innovation.
