What is a Domain Extension?

(You know, the letters after the dot)

.xyz is an upcoming generic domain extension on the internet. You know the .com at the end of an address in your navigation bar? That’s an extension (sometimes known as a gTLD). Right now there are only 22 to choose from. But, starting very soon, there are going to be a whole bunch of new ones released. ICANN, the organization that governs internet protocol, recently decided to allow internet registries to apply for new domain extensions. We’re excited that we are able to bring to you .xyz.
