Property.xyzInternet.bs customer (United Kingdom)

Great founders often share the ability to look at an industry, see a need for change, and create a product or service that addresses that need. To reach the right audience and scale their solution in the market, founders need a memorable brand and the ability to broadcast their message globally. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’ll speak with a co-founder who saw a need for simplification in the property investment industry. He invented a platform that he envisions will become the future of property buying, and launched it using the perfect branded domain name: Property.xyz.

Property.xyz

Property.xyz is a free-to-use property listing platform designed by property investors, for property investors. Property.xyz co-founder Robert Jones says his team’s vision is “to build the world’s most intelligent property platform.” He and his co-founder came up with the idea for the platform when they recognized the fragmentation in the UK property market. “There are hundreds of different websites to go to for each part of the process from search, to research, to arranging viewings,” says Robert. With Property.xyz, the co-founders created a software that aims to replace this fractured model with “a frictionless process for estate agents, auctions and new build developers to upload their properties for free and easily via their existing CRM.” To ensure they had the technical infrastructure to take Property.xyz to market, Robert and his team worked with a range of tech architects, as well as cloud and software engineers.

When creating Property.xyz, Robert and the team focused on building a true full-service solution that could revolutionize the property industry by covering everything from A to XYZ. “(We asked) what does the future of property buying look like? Not just in the UK but around the world. Not just residential property, but commercial, land, renting, homeowners. What does the process look like when you have the latest technology and no friction? So we imagined Property.xyz.”

To promote this new platform, Robert and his team also knew they wanted a domain name that was bold, forward-thinking, and fit with their long term vision. “We’re creating a property platform that works for everyone,” he says. “All buyers. All sellers. All agents and suppliers. Covers all geographic areas. All property types. All property categories from residential to commercial. All steps of the property process. All available data in one place. A centralised platform. ‘Building the world’s most intelligent property platform.’ We felt (the name) Property.xyz achieves this perfectly.” The Property.xyz domain fits their mission and model perfectly, as it is a generic and brandable name. .XYZ is also a global domain name with universal reach, as x, y, and z are recognized worldwide as the ending of the alphabet. This allows Property.xyz to attract users from any country, helps their platform stand out without limiting it to any one market or region, and gives them a domain name that will scale alongside their global efforts.

The .xyz community is known as a home to many innovative startups looking to revolutionize their industry. Starship.xyz, an autonomous delivery robot startup from Skype’s co-founders, Engine.xyz, a $175 million “tough tech” incubator from MIT, and driver-friendly rideshare app Be.xyz are just a few of the many examples. Their mission to create a global solution that simplifies property buying and selling shows they share the same spirit of innovation that the .xyz community is renowned for.

Choosing a strong, memorable name is critical for any global brand. The best brands use their website URL as an opportunity to make a lasting impression on potential users and set themselves apart from others in the industry. With Property.xyz, Robert and his team have a brand name that makes a statement, shows their innovative nature, and sticks in potential users’ minds.

Property.xyz and its creators show that innovation comes from recognizing a need for change and coming up with a solution that is capable of bringing it. Armed with their memorable, expertly branded, globally reaching .xyz domain, Property.xyz is ready to take their services to the world and revolutionize the property investment industry.

Amindi.xyzeNom / Open SRS customer (United States)

The .xyz community is home to many amazing artists and inspiring creatives. Former Amazon executive JJDelgado.xyz spreads his powerful business philosophy through his personal .xyz website. Viral sensation MSCHF.xyz show off their bizarrely awesome viral projects using their well-branded .xyz. Soulful R&B star Quami.xyz even uses his website URL as his stage name.

This week’s #WebsiteWednesday features another gifted artist and .xyz adopter showcasing her impressive projects and unique style on her website, Amindi.xyz.

amindi.xyz/

Amindi.xyz is the hybrid promotional and personal webpage of 20-year-old reggae and R&B singer Amindi K. Fro$t. Aminidi says, “My intention was to create a blog-like site where my supporters could keep up with my latest releases as well as extra content that goes along with them.” Amindi has welcomed many of those supporters since her 2017 hit single “pine & ginger”, which has reached over 14 million plays on Spotify. The song catapulted her into the music spotlight, earning her a profile from Vice and a documentary from The Fader. She’s even given a tour of her hometown of Inglewood, California for LA-based urban innovator publication Citizen.

Amindi’s impressive streaming numbers and growing media profile are great signs of her stellar rise to prominence. Her personal career milestones illustrate her impressive reach as well. One of the best examples is when Amindi received an invitation to perform in Portmore, Jamaica. Her music is such a hit in the country that the audience sang her lyrics back to her at the show. This was particularly special for Amindi, as her Jamaican roots play an integral role in much of her music along with her home city. “One side (of me) is dipped in my LA culture while the other side is dipped in my very strong household Jamaican culture,” she says. “There’s no denying that I’m from LA, but also, I’m very proud to be Caribbean and West Indian.”

Amindi shows that pride in her website design, which features a Jamaican-inspired color palette that seems to reflect the country’s significance to her heritage and her music. Clicking the side navigation menu links will take you to dedicated pages for each of Amindi’s singles. The pages are complete with embedded streaming links, full lyrics, and song credits. This is not only a good way to promote her work, but also a way Amindi shows her personality and gives a glimpse into her thoughts on her music. For the songs “love em leave em” and “eggs aisle” she uses funky, colorful text that creates a playful vibe. For “eggs aisle” specifically, she’s overlaid that same colorful type on top of gifs of herself making eggs which function as a quirky, eye-catching calls-to-action that entice visitors to watch or listen to the song.

https://amindi.xyz/

The dedicated page for “pine & ginger” is the most similar to a classic diary or blog entry that you’ll find on Amindi’s website. On the page she shares a short essay about the history of the song while exploring her current feelings about it two years after it launched her to stardom. The post is a touching personal perspective from an artist who is very aware of her creative direction and grateful for the path that led her there.

Amindi knows the power of her personal website, which is why she puts it to good use by making it a key part of her self promotion. The About section of her Spotify page links directly to Amindi.xyz, making it the main source for listeners who want to learn more about her. She also promotes the memorably-branded URL as the sole content of her Instagram bio, as well.

When it came time to choose a domain extension, it’s not surprising someone as creative as Amindi was drawn to choosing a domain name that matches her mindset. As she simply put it, “I chose the .xyz domain because it was the coolest and most unique out of the options.” Amindi is an exciting talent to watch thanks to her creative vision and songwriting skills. Her personal website Amindi.xyz is a great example of the creativity and unique artistic styles of the members of the .xyz community.

TwoSeven.xyzNamecheap customer (India)

If you’re anything like the team here at XYZ, you’re probably getting through the current social distancing lockdown due to COVID-19 by watching a lot more TV and movies. In place of going out to a bar or restaurant, watch parties are becoming a weekend staple in the plans of many. While web chat services are a good fill-in for face to face conversations, they aren’t built to make it easy to watch a movie or show together on a group call. If you’re looking to host a killer movie night or add some company to your TV binging, try using this week’s #WebsiteWednesday: TwoSeven.xyz.

TwoSeven.xyz

TwoSeven.xyz is a browser-based video service designed to let you watch TV shows, movies, and online videos with your friends together through the internet. The platform is made to allow each person in your group to watch on the same player screen, eliminating the need to countdown to start watching together on individual devices. TwoSeven.xyz’s service works by displaying the show or movie your group is watching in the main player box, while you can see and talk to your friends via video chat windows. There is also a text chat feature which can be a handy way to talk while the show is on without disturbing anyone.

To use TwoSeven.xyz with your friends, the first step is to create an account on their site and download the TwoSeven.xyz browser extension to your web browser. Then you’ll be able to start watching videos from YouTube, Netflix, HBO Now, Amazon Prime Video, and Vimeo with your friends. TwoSeven.xyz does not charge users to use their service and watch content from those platforms. If you want to watch content from your Disney Plus or Hulu accounts, you can upgrade to use the paid version of TwoSeven.xyz, available currently for $3 per month. You can also play personal videos from your Google Drive or OneDrive, as well.


https://twoseven.xyz/
The XYZ Team catching up on Silicon Valley with TwoSeven.xyz..

Using TwoSeven.xyz’s service is made easier thanks to their decision to build the entire platform around their domain name. Because it is a browser-based platform, all you need to access it is your login and a web browser. There is no need to download any apps or software, which would tie your usage to a single device. When you want to start a watch party with friends, all you have to do is send them a TwoSeven.xyz custom link to join your watch room. Then, your friends can log in to their account and join you in the fun.

The idea for TwoSeven.xyz came to its creators when they were in a similar situation to the one that the world is living through now to flatten the COVID-19 curve. They were in a long-distance relationship and wanted to find a way to keep watching their favorite shows together. “When we were apart, we couldn’t watch together without the added pain of manually counting down on a Skype call to synchronize our videos. This was often inaccurate and sometimes even frustrating, particularly when one of us got to see and react to plot-twists before the other. As Computer Scientists, we knew we could do better, and ventured into building TwoSeven.xyz.”

The team behind TwoSeven.xyz has a special attachment to the name of their site, and keeping that name was a part of why they chose to brand with a .xyz domain. Their .xyz domain is now one of the most important parts of their brand identity. “Although availability, affordability, and “nice ring” were our initial reasons, a couple of other reasons helped us feel more at home with the .xyz domain:

  1. Our goal is to enable people to watch videos from any website (x, y, or z.)
  2. We read about the symbolism of xyz representing all three coordinate axes, which resonated very well with our goal.

Four years later, with even our Twitter handle being ‘@twosevenxyz‘, the domain has become an integral part of the TwoSeven service.”

TwoSeven.xyz is quickly becoming one of the most popular sites on the web. Trusted outlets like The Verge, The Signal, Gadgets Now, and TechHive all recommend TwoSeven.xyz’s service. TwoSeven.xyz ranks just outside the top 10,000 most popular websites in America right now, and is around the 50,000th most visited website in the world according to Alexa.

As TwoSeven.xyz shows, you can satisfy new market demands quickly and efficiently by harnessing the power of your website. When you build a web-based solution like TwoSeven.xyz, you also make it accessible to a global audience and increase your chances of widespread adoption. Do you have the right tech to fill needs you see for customers in today’s changing market? Follow TwoSeven.xyz’s lead and take the first step to success by launching it on your own .xyz website.

wearehypothetical.xyzeNom / Open SRS customer (Australia)

People say that if you pursue what you’re passionate about, then you won’t work a day in your life. But how do you turn your hobby or favorite past time into a lucrative business? For this #WebsiteWednesday we interviewed a .xyz adopter with one of the coolest jobs we’ve ever heard of. Learn how music photographer and videographer William Zhang made his dream a reality and created the website he needed to prove his skills: wearehypothetical.xyz.

WeAreHypothetical.xyz homepage
wearehypothetical.xyz is the online portfolio of Sydney-based arts and entertainment photographer and videographer William Zhang. He’s traveled the world capturing photos and videos at music festivals like Lollapalooza, Electric Daisy Carnival Japan, and Falls Festival. His portfolio features some of music’s biggest names, including Flume, Odesza, and Anderson Paak.

XYZ: Did you always know that you wanted to be an arts and entertainment photographer? How did you get into it?

I’ve always been fond of band tour videos, short films, ads, and music videos. During high school, I would go down the rabbit hole on Vimeo and Reddit watching the aforementioned content trying to dissect how stuff was shot. Being that engaged in something, you obviously want to give it a go yourself. Film school being out of the question, I made an assumption photography would be a good place to start and that shooting live music would be the lowest barrier of entry to achieving the first goal of making tour content. I also love a wide variety of music genres so it was a natural fit. I transitioned into video about 2 years ago and have a long journey ahead.

XYZ: What has been your most memorable show or festival?

EDC Japan. It started pouring during Alison Wonderland’s set to the point where the water on stage was about a centimetre or two tall. She continued playing to an enthusiastic Japanese crowd in ponchos and, of course, I kept shooting with a towel over my camera. It was one of those moments where the show goes on and you gotta think fast but the content was definitely unique compared to other shows thanks to the heavy rain.

XYZ: When did you make your website? What was that process like?

Around mid-late 2015. [The process was] quite easy thanks to the rise of content management platforms that anyone can use. The initial set up process was easy and getting the site live with content was intuitive thanks to the well thought out UX design.

XYZ: What made you choose a .xyz domain?

‘xyz’ has futuristic and abstract connotations. They’re typically letters used in product models or in popular culture to denote that something (usually a machine) is advanced or is categorised to do a cool thing to its other counterparts. It also matched with my brand name ‘hypothetical’ which ties to the similar connotations around possibilities and ideas.

XYZ: How has your website affected your career?

For starters, it’s my portfolio so it’s typically someone’s first impression of the stuff I make. Thankfully it’s left a good impression to most people I’ve sent it to, so that’s maximised the opportunities I get. In my other job within marketing analytics and automation, it’s a cool thing to show people when I tell them I’m a photographer/videographer and that I’m actually serious about it in the age of everyone having a camera.

XYZ: Any advice for aspiring arts and entertainment photographers?

I’m still well in my early days despite the cool opportunities I’ve received. For advice, reach out to as many people as you can and shoot as much as you can. The more you do stuff the better you get, obviously. To overcome the catch 22 of how to get gigs when you don’t have a portfolio, shoot anything that’s accessible (landscapes, portraits of your friends) to show you have a good eye and can use a camera.

Will has turned his music photography and videography dreams into a reality and he has the .xyz website to prove it. Having a top-notch website professionally showcases his talent and expertise and enables him to easily share his work with clients. Follow Will on Instagram with @Will.Hypothetical to stay up-to-date on the latest shows he captures, or contact him by email.

Uni.xyzName.com customer (India)

We’ve all been there, you’re working on a task that seems insurmountable or trying to crack a puzzle blocking your latest project and can’t find a solution. While some things seem impossible, collaboration and teamwork could be the secrets to solving any challenge no matter how great. Applying that same logic to an industry can bring truly revolutionary change, as this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, Uni.xyz, will show you.

Uni.xyz is a community created for designers, by designers, that allows its members to showcase their skills, find clients, and take on exciting design challenges together. The idea for Uni.xyz came from two design industry challenges that the UNI founders noticed. On the one hand, many talented design artists struggle to find opportunities to feature their work in front of a large audience, which in turn impacts their ability to find steady projects. On the flip side, clients looking for design work have difficulty finding the right designer for their needs.

The network Uni.xyz have fostered brings these two camps together, bridging the gap between supply and demand while establishing a progressive community for designers to express their passion and pursue their design dreams. The main method Uni.xyz uses to bring designers and clients together is with their design challenges. These competitions pit designers up against grand-scale creative challenges like proposing interactive performance venues, re-designing prisons to maximize rehabilitation, and inventing machine-human solutions to prepare for reaching the singularity.

Competitions are open to all members of the Uni.xyz community, and entries are judged by panels comprised of design experts and industry leaders. The competitions not only give designers a chance to propose their work to potential clients and mentors but also allow them to collaborate with other professionals to solve challenges as a team and share ideas. Clients benefit as well, as they are able to host design challenges and get a first-hand look at highly talented individuals and teams ready to take on new work.

“Our ultimate goal at UNI is to make good design accessible to all. Good designers need clients and the world needs good design. However, the process of designing currently comes with many strings attached. Designers have to depend on multiple tools for integral aspects of their work, like collaborating, raising their skills, finding inspiration, communicating, showcasing work and finding clients. We believe that there’s a need to reimagine the tools available to designers. At Uni.xyz we target to provide a solution to those issues, thus allowing designers to spend more time and energy on what they do best – design.


XYZ for us symbolizes three generations of users ranging from traditional Gen X to contemporary Gen Z. We at UNI believe that we aren’t another corporate ‘company’ or ‘organization’. We are a platform for design enthusiasts globally and across all generations. Thus, the domain ‘.xyz’ resonated well with our self-reflection to create something for the ever-growing community of Gen X, Gen Y & Gen Z designers.”
Uni.xyz team

Never backing down from a challenge, no matter how great it may seem, is one of the core values that .xyz and it’s millions of adopters share. We believe no goal is too great to be accomplished, whether it be to create affordable housing for the next generation of entrepreneurs or to become the most popular domain extension in the world. Are you ready to take on your next challenge? Then register your own .xyz domain and get the tool you need to amplify your voice while joining the community of users who make the impossible look easy.

Spinster.xyzNamecheap customer (United States)

During the Middle Ages, it was common for unmarried women to get work by spinning yarn or thread as a means of financial independence, referred to as spinsters. At that time a person’s occupation was often used as a sort of surname in legal documents. By the 17th century, unmarried women were generically referred to as spinsters, eventually evolving into the insult it is today. This week’s #WebsiteWednesday is reclaiming the term to represent female freedom and autonomy for their women-centric website, Spinster.xyz.

Spinster.xyz homepage

Spinster.xyz is a social media platform meant to provide a safe space for feminist dialogue. While it’s open to all genders, the rules set in place are meant to protect women and feminists specifically. The platform has strict policies against the use of slurs, messages of misogyny, stalking, and harassment. The site’s moderators strictly enforce these rules to ensure that feminists have a platform to connect without being targeted and harassed.

Spinster.xyz was recently founded by software engineers Mary Kate Fain (@[email protected]) and Alex Gleason (@[email protected]). Also a writer and grassroots organizer, Mary Kate faced backlash online for her popular articles on feminism. Mary Kate and Alex saw a need to give internet users a place to discuss feminism without feeling censored or afraid. They took to the Fediverse, a decentralized web of social networking applications that communicate with each other (including fellow Fediverse site Mastodon.xyz), to start Spinster.xyz, and knew that .xyz would be the perfect domain to brand with.

“We chose .xyz as our top-level domain for two main reasons. First, it is short, snappy, and easy to say, spell, and remember.

Second, we liked .xyz because it felt tangential to the content of Spinster. As a feminist social media platform, we regularly deal with questions of identity, biology, what it means to be a woman. Since “X” and “Y” are the human sex chromosomes, we thought .xyz was a bit of a cheeky reference to the extravagance of modern gender discourse.”


– Mary Kate Fain, Co-founder of Spinster.xyz

Spinster.xyz launched on August 15, 2019 to an outstanding reaction. Within one week, the site was overloaded with 4,250 users and over 74,000 statuses posted. Spinster.xyz was also featured in an article on Reclaim the Net, and Mary Kate was interviewed on the Feminist Current podcast.

Spinster.xyz is designed to work similarly to Twitter, and allows users to post up to 3000 characters in public or direct messages. The posts can include photos, videos, and polls, and posters can tag each other through their “@spinster.xyz” handles. Where Twitter has only one feed, Spinster.xyz has three feeds on the homepage. The Home feed lists updates from those you follow, the Spinster feed includes updates from all the platform’s users, and the Fediverse feed houses updates from the connected network.

All of us at XYZ believe in equality and celebrate the profound impact women have on our society every day. We’re proud that Mary Kate and Alex have chosen to share their innovative platform with the world on a .xyz domain.

You can head to Spinster.xyz to request access to the network, or follow them on Twitter @spinster_xyz.

OkInvent.xyzNetwork Solutions customer (India)

The path to being a successful entrepreneur requires much more than having a great idea.

Our mission for .xyz is to provide a platform for rising innovators and makers to build that essential community behind their businesses.

Dare2Dream.xyzGoDaddy customer (United States)

One piece of advice many of us have heard since we were children is to “follow our dreams.” But following your dreams means pushing through many obstacles along the way, and sometimes those obstacles can be so intimidating you simply stop pursuing your dreams altogether. The founders of this week’s #WebsiteWednesday never accepted defeat on the path to their dreams, and now they are helping the next generation overcome their fears and push for success: Dare2Dream.xyz.

Dare2Dream.xyz is a foundation whose mission is to “improve the quality of life for youth and young adults in order to strengthen our communities both domestically and globally.” It’s founders, Harold “Lefty” Williams and his wife, Shyneefa, know that anything worth having in life is worth working for, and their resilient attitudes have helped them achieve success. Now, they’re committed to teaching that same attitude to today’s youth.

Lefty, a star basketball player who once played for the Harlem Globetrotters, didn’t have an easy path to living his dream. Lefty was a standout player in high school and college, but met his share of adversity; transferring colleges his sophomore year to be closer to his mom during her health issues, playing in numerous basketball leagues in the U.S. and abroad when he wasn’t drafted into the NBA after college, and fighting to regain his passion for the game after his grandfather passed away. Despite the hardships, he held onto his dream to play pro and finally made the Globetrotters roster in 2008. His rise to stardom was even chronicled in an exceptional piece by ESPN.

Now, Lefty and his wife Shyneefa, who both share the same hard-working, never-say-die attitude, are inspiring kids in the next generation to follow their lead and work hard to achieve their dreams.

Through ambassador programs that empower youth and help them develop healthy habits, as well as basketball and fitness camps, Dare2Dream.xyz gives youth the tools they need to push through the obstacles and hardships that stand in the way of their dreams. Dare2Dream.xyz also works closely with Lefty’s basketball team, the Harlem Dreams, which regularly holds charity shows with local organizations and donates 100% of the ticket proceeds to the organizations they are helping.

When it came time to spread Dare2Dream’s message of positivity and resilience worldwide via a website, Lefty knew the best way to do it.

“I made the Dare2Dream website on a .xyz domain because I’m always looking for something different, and .xyz stands out. I teach my kids the ABCs of basketball, so what’s more perfect than getting a domain that ends in XYZ?

People already know the ABCs of what I do, so when I saw I could have my website end with .xyz, I was like ‘That’s perfect, I have to go get that.’”
– Lefty Williams, founder of Dare2Dream.xyz

Staying focused on your goals and pushing to achieve them in the face of adversity isn’t easy, but it’s one of the most satisfying feelings in life. As Lefty and Shyneefa know, you just need the right attitude to make your dreams a reality.

Get inspired by Dare2Dream.xyz by following Lefty and Dare2Dream on Twitter, and dare to follow your dream yourself by getting your own .xyz domain for your website.

Rosch.xyzINWX customer (Germany)

Thanks to digital graphics and design, modern art has been taken to mind-bendingly cool new levels. Our #WebsiteWednesday this week, Rosch.xyz, is one of the most talented connoisseurs of this new illustration technology, and his work with Nike and Redbull is sure to inspire your creative side.

Ronny Schmidt, aka Rosch, is a Berlin based 3D artist who utilizes his skills to create vibrant, captivating animations both for commercial clients and as personal creative projects. Rosch freelanced for years before starting his current position as 3D Director of CATK studio, and his client list includes internationally recognized brands like Nike, Google, Balenciaga, Red Bull IBM, Chanel, HBO, MTV, and Mercedes Benz.

His installation for Nike as part of their Strike Series was a visual exploration of athletes in motion, using suspended 3D blocks to create unique outlines of bodies in action. If you are a music fan, you’ll really enjoy the video shorts Rosch created for Red Bull Music’s 20Before17, which utilizes music production-inspired imagery to paint a picture of the creative process behind music composition. His work for MTV as part of their Grouphug campaign will leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, as the video spot celebrates the vibrant color of friendship and sharing.

“My inspiration to create Rosch.xyz was simply to have a nice online portfolio showcasing my work as a 3D artist/director.

The reason why I chose a .xyz domain was mainly because the x, y and z axis play a very important role in my work as a 3d artist – so it was more than fitting to choose this special domain extension.”
– Ronny Schmidt, creator of Rosch.xyz

There are countless creative individuals coming online today that are eager to share their impressive talents and unique perspectives with the world. Luckily for these artists, .xyz is there to help them build a portfolio on which they can broadcast their abilities to a worldwide audience, just as Rosch has with Rosch.xyz.

If you’re a regular internet user, you know the search engine is king. It’s the most common way we navigate online to find products and services and look for content to enjoy. To stay ahead of their competition and secure new customers, companies around the globe are hard at work developing the best strategy to have their business rank highly in search engines and have as much visibility on the web as possible. That’s where having the help of someone like this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, AandB.xyz, can make all the difference in how easily potential customers can find you online.

A&B is a digital marketing agency based in Mumbai and London that offers a complete lineup of services to make your business stand out online and keep your customers satisfied. That includes everything from digital strategy planning and search engine optimization to social media content creation and influencer marketing partnerships.

Their list of clients, which includes TEDx, Bollywood Music Project, Evok, and more, is a testament to the high-quality work they do, and you can see some of that work yourself on their site. A&B also created a knowledge resource all about SEO and digital marketing, The Rank Machine, which offers valuable advice and case studies that both novices and industry veterans alike can learn from. They even have a post about the search ranking value of your .xyz domain!

“Our future goals for A&B are to launch our other sub-brands as subdomains, like Talent.AandB.xyz and Media.AandB.xyz, as well as build more around our core AandB.xyz domain.

The thing we like most about our .xyz domain is that it helps us stand out and start a conversation. People are like, ‘.xyz… what is that? Sounds cool.’ We then respond with, ‘It is a different TLD for new gen brands: brands who want to shake up the status quo and create something new.'”

Having a .xyz domain is special not only because you can choose a domain to perfectly match your brand, but also because you are a part of the new generation of internet users branching out beyond traditional domain names. Just as A&B has shown the power their .xyz domain has given them, you can harness that same power for your business or idea and be a member of the next internet revolution, #GenXYZ.
