Techweb.com.cn, gave a pretty good endorsement to the .XYZ registry.
We had to use Google Translate to turn this into broken English but you get the general idea, that they are recommending to their readers they try .XYZ as an investment:
2014 has been in the past half more, this time in the domain name industry after another we see a lot of new top-level domains, such as Online, Chinese net, .club ,. move, .xyz, .wang more. Among them, have to say .xyz is a new top-level domain of the black horse! Black in there?
Listen to Xiao Bian eleven.
A “black” – the name a little casual
We all know that xyz is the 26 letters of the alphabet in the last three, we can recall the road from the school to solve a lot of math questions about xyz, we can even think of the goddess xyz brother a break “little leaf” (Xiao Ye Zi), Taobao sellers‘ reputation value “(Xin Yu Zhi), Saint Seiya outbreak of” small universe “(Xiao Yu Zhou), and even recently scored 497 million Lottery Awards” lucky “(Xing Yun Zhe). But who could not think of xyz estimate will become the new top-level domain? !
Two “black” – not defined in this domain
The vast majority of new top-level domain has a specific purpose or definition, such .bar refers bar, .club refers Club Online translation is online, so why say that the vast majority of it? .xyz Especially because there is no definition! Things tend to be so, because too familiar with, so they had forgotten the original meaning, and finally became a common word. Who would have thought that xyz is no definition specific to the new top-level domain? !
Three “black” – The domain name registration large
Surprisingly, yes, is this a bit casual no unspecified domain, but with 23.7% market share of new top-level domains firmly occupy the top position holdings, is ranked No. 2 in the new top-level domain ownership more than tripled, after 6 market share of the total! This is the new top-level domain .xyz is called “dark horse” of the main reasons.
Xiao Bian can not help but ponder entered, that really is the “size of the take-all” What? Could it be that because the big imagination it? I am afraid that is not so simple. Xiao Bian think the deeper reason or should return to the product nature, to know “xyz” These three letters in the English-speaking world has a wide range of use, the user habits and awareness of these two has been stronger than the other domain suffixes lot. It can be said, super market awareness plus great flexibility and creative imagination to customize for .xyz successful products has laid a solid foundation. The remaining simply a “A Little Push”, natural matter of course.
So, .xyz domain so successful abroad, whether to put the country will be the case? Xiaobian that although the country did not use xyz as foreign as the basis, but the awareness unaffected. .xyz it easy for users to generate their own imagination and thought, if with marketing activities, will play the same purpose, such as “eat funny .xyz”, I believe many people will think of a biscuit brand, which specializes in creative marketing to based, and .xyz precisely in line with the brand “tricks and more,” the character.
On the other hand, there are many short domain currently .xyz and boutique domain resources.
Xiao Bian lowest prices seen in the first year has been 10 dollars or less, and this is undoubtedly the domain name investment is a good news.
For example, the new network recently launched “dare to greet the unknown .xyz– defined by you” campaign, the price is low to an unprecedented eight yuan / first year, a variety of quality resources clean sweep!
Faced with such a chance, who would not want to try it?
.xyz Believe will be the next in the domestic fire!
I agree with the guy that an xyz investor has a better chance with xyz than the others due to low fees but also because .xyz can act both as a decent generic and also as a “span the dot” as it can add meaning and is memorable like company xyz or drug xyz. I think it is one of the few new tld’s that is a hybrid in this regard. Not sure if it will be a big winner for investors but you have a chance to succeed at least which is highly doubtful for most gtld’s with their high fees and lack of marketing efforts.

If you’re disgusted by the ongoing .XYZ scam and don’t want to see Chinese domain investors deceived by the registration numbers, then please post a response to the Techweb.com.cn article. You can use Google translate to post both in English and Chinese. And I’d recommend including links to various English-language articles about the scandal.
Chinese domain investors have been good to domain investors elsewhere in the West. Many of us have sold domains directly to Chinese investors. And we’ve all seen chart-topping sales due to China. Such investments have a trickle-down effect that benefits many other domainers. So we owe it to our Chinese colleagues to prevent their being duped by the .XYZ registry.
Even if you subtract the free network solution registrations .XYZ is still in the top 5 and has only been around 2 months. For full disclosure I own 5 .xyz’s.
Joseph Peterson says
Quite a few people have been misled by the .XYZ registry and have registered .XYZ domains based on a mirage of popularity.
Maybe you chose yours for other reasons. Nevertheless, the .XYZ registry ought to be condemned for continuing to deceive people.
Domain Observer says
As I commented somewhere else early this year, the problem with the new extensions is that they have very little Exchange Value. I don’t deny their Use Value. They can be used as great websites depending on the contents. I don’t deny that some people buy fresh canned/bottled air. But!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Generally, most of the air has very little Exchange Value. Another example may be CC which is one of the oldest extensions that was created for global use before the year 2000. We all know what the market value of .CC domains is at the current secondary market. Then somebody should explain why XYZ is different from CC.
