Many people called me crazy, and some people still do. Nonetheless, this week was a BIG win for our team, who have been on the grind pushing 12+ hour days consistently for the past year+. Not only have we been spreading the word and marketing .xyz, but we have also been building technology to improve our namespace and to add value to .xyz registrants.

There have been thousands of .xyz use cases since we launched, but what happened this week was bigger than we ever imagined.

My team and I have been marketing .xyz for next generation businesses, and it is refreshing to see one of the largest and most innovative companies in the world using it for just that purpose!

I have been saying all along: we end the alphabet with XYZ and we should end domain names the same way.

“We liked the name Alphabet because it means a collection of letters that represent language, one of humanity’s most important innovations, and is the core of how we index with Google search!” -Larry Page

BOOM – Now WE DO end domain names the same way.

Over the next 30 years, .xyz will reign supreme as not only the #1 new domain extension, but eventually as the NUMBER 1 domain in the world. Period.

Now that new domains are in the spotlight, all new gTLDs will continue to benefit from our global awareness efforts. There are billions of people on the planet today, yet there are only about 300 million registered domains. As millions of these internet users come online for the first time, they will know that they have affordable and flexible domain options to build their web presence – with domains like .xyz.

And you can expect big things from .xyz. As I have said multiple times, I am ALL IN. Almost every day of my life, I wake up and throw my .xyz shirt on and think of ways to grow our presence around the world. Everyday, I hear about new .xyz domains being used and receive positive messages from Gen XYZers.

I am of the opinion that there is a bubble in .com domains so I am selling domains like, DMN.COM and pretty much every .com in my portfolio. Instead, I represent myself with and I am bringing to market more domain options like .College, .rent, and .security. Internet users are no longer limited to past naming options.

.xyz is the most flexible, most memorable domain there could ever be. It transcends language barriers. Tell someone in China, Brazil, the UK, or ANYWHERE in the world about .xyz and ask them if they could forget the ending .xyz. The answer will be a universal NO, THEY CAN’T FORGET IT. Get YOUR .xyz presence and stand out from the crowd.

…or be left in the dust with Rick Schwartz and the other haters who are stuck in the past. Let’s come back to reality. The gravy train is over. It’s time to bring back affordability and choice to internet users worldwide with .xyz.
