About .XYZ

.XYZ is a generic Top-Level Domain (TLD), which means that it is available for anyone in the world to register. Unlike many other generic TLDs, .XYZ truly is generic and has no meaning. This makes it a great choice for those looking for a TLD that focuses all of the attention on what’s to the left of the dot.

Why would I want a .XYZ domain?

It can be very difficult to find an available domain name that perfectly matches your company, blog, or whatever else you are setting up a website for. This is especially true if you’re searching for a .COM domain, since there are millions and millions of .COM domains already registered.

While there are hundreds of other TLDs to choose from, some may find them a bit too distracting because they are words that have their own meaning. Many websites can really benefit from having a TLD like .ACADEMY, .PICTURES or .MENU, but if you can’t find a TLD that is related to your website then it will just confuse your branding. If is taken, it wouldn’t really make sense to register instead, right?

Since .XYZ isn’t a word, it truly has no meaning. Like .COM, it is a seemingly random grouping of 3 letters that has a nice ring to it when you read/say it. There’s nothing fancy about it: It won’t describe your site better, make people laugh, or sing a sweet rendition of Cryin’ by Aerosmith – and that’s fine! It’s a no-nonsense option for anyone that just wants a regular ol’ domain name.

That being said, .XYZ can help to make your domain name stand out because it is not as common as .COM. This is perfect for those looking to give their domain names a little extra boost without distracting too much from the actual website name.
