It’s the 7th anniversary of .xyz’s launch and today we celebrate you, our .xyz community. We’re incredibly proud of the many innovators, creators, and makers achieving their dreams with .xyz domains. Members of the .xyz community are creating breakthrough technologies, influential works of art and entertainment, and inspiring projects aimed at making a positive impact on the world. We see you and applaud all that you have accomplished!
Some .xyz websites that stood out to us this year include:
We are so grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our partners who have made it possible for everyone around the world to find their own .xyz. Thanks to our global network and their customers across the globe, worldwide adoption has made .xyz a top choice for 3 million domains and counting. To name a few, GoDaddy, Namecheap, Onamae, and Alibaba have helped us spread the message that .xyz truly is “for every website, everywhere®.”
We are pleased to report that .xyz continues to be one of the most popular domains in China, with adopters ranging from small businesses, individuals, and organizations. And earlier this year, eight more of our TLDs joined .xyz in achieving MIIT accreditation. We are so proud that any owner of a .Rent, .College, .Monster, .Baby, .Security, .Protection, .Storage, or .Theatre domain in China can publish their site live to a global audience.
This year the XYZ family of domain names has continued to grow by leaps and bounds! We proudly introduced the first-ever domain names made for the beauty industry: .Beauty, .Hair, .Skin, and .Makeup. These domains were made available for only $15-20/year MSRP (depending on the retailer), a near 99% drop from the $8,000 price tag of the previously launched .Makeup TLD. We also launched .Quest, the generic domain name made for gurus, experts, and authorities in any field. We are thrilled to bring these new domains to the market to provide relevant options, and to serve new industries that have yet to have domain names designed specifically for them! These new domains can help anyone, including beauty brands, professionals, fans, and gurus, launch affordable, memorable websites that match their brand name, first and last name, social handle, or creative idea.
We’ve also been gearing up for the relaunch of our latest domain names, .Homes, .Autos, .Motorcycles, .Boats, and .Yachts, with another innovative price drop and rebrand. These domains make it easy for anyone to create memorable domains that match what their audiences are searching for. Beginning June 14 the cost will be reduced by up to 80% for consumers, down to $19.99/year MSRP. This price drop affords individuals the opportunity to acquire a variety of domain names for their projects for the previous price of one. We can’t wait to see the inspired results!
The XYZ Team thanks our worldwide community for helping us reach the 7-year mark stronger than ever and looks forward to sharing many more milestones together. We couldn’t have done it without you!
