What are your opinion about the recent .XYZ domain popularity?

Recently Jack Dorsey (Founder of Twitter) company changed their name to Block.XYZ and there are many other reported big figures .xyz sales.

Do you think it's the best idea to invest in .XYZ

I think there is a good chance for XYZ to take hold as a secondary to .com — much like .net — now.

Two of the largest companies are using it. I think that we'll see a trend with Fortune 500s, and then regular folk, if it is within a reasonable price range compared to the .com.

By scanning most of the recent .xyz sales I found this is mostly used by crypto and blockchain-related startups and companies.

I think it has the potential to be used for much more than just that.

I'm just sorry I turned a blind eye to this one because it seemed so flakey, much like a .com boom company would act.

The extension has a real chance at becoming the new #2 to .com, especially because of google.

However, I still think ultimately you will see a lot of upgrades to .com if the company can afford it/ acquire the .com.

Having to say square.xyz is still quite a bit more cumbersome than saying square.com

This debate will probably go on forever but if I had to make a new business name I would rather make one up and use the .com than use the .xyz

MapleDots.xyz just does not carry as much weight as MapleDots.com


PS. All that said, if I can make money on one I will register it in a New York minute.

I agree that most startups after a successful launch and securing enough dollars from investors jump and acquire exact product match .com (which ultimately make .com more valuable then any other .whatever tld)

What I noticed in .xyz is most of this reported sales are single words, some are even very uncommon word and the most trending niche is crypto and blockchain.

If enough businesses make it common use, it may be a good investment. However, just like with .com, all the generics have already been registered by domainers. So you'll pay a hefty markup, and unlike with .com, there isn't much backing it its value right now. Personally, I also don't like the way .xyz looks (visually).

I think every domainer must have not only .xyz but allot of different extensions to diversify the portfolio.
If to reg with .xyz then go for one words and unique 2 words.

I agree with you, I myself sold .co, .tv and .org domain name because I hold these TLDs along with .COM

Hi

many one word .xyz domains have premium renewal pricing.
some are in 4 figure range
so, the registry is basically profiting off the registrant for life

imo...

I agree and I saw many even in 4 figure renewal.

Btw, today Namebio reported sales has 9 to 10 .xyz and the biggest is also .XYZ domain.

Momentum.xyz sold by Swetha for $69,888

I have reg a couple of .xyz but my advice to everyone is to be careful and not go overboard.
Google knows how to manipulate through others.
