.XYZ and .SPACE domains now open for registration
After the addition of next-gen generic nTLDs like .WEBSITE, .SERVICES and .SOLUTIONS to our reseller hosting platform this summer, we are embracing the autumn with two new high-potential domain names – .XYZ and .SPACE.
Both TLDs are short and memorable, allowing site owners to register appealing domain names that are unavailable with other extensions.
.XYZ’s and .SPACE’s growing popularity makes them a fresh and attractive add-on to your domain portfolio.
What is specific about .XYZ domains?
.XYZ was introduced to the Internet on June 2, 2014, by a pair of registries – XYZ.COM, which is also responsible for .RENT, .COLLEGE and the soon-to-come .SECURITY and .PROTECTION, and CentralNic.
According to XYZ.COM, the main mission of .XYZ is to bridge the gap between generations X, Y and Z, and to give all age groups the opportunity to grow their projects, brands and businesses in perfect synchronicity.
Generation X covers people born between the mid-1960’s and the early 1980’s, who are open to religious, class, racial, etc. differences. Generation Y covers people born between the 1980’s and the year 2000 (also called Millennials), whose mindset is shaped by the technological revolution. Generation Z – the children of the previous two generations, can be characterized by a prolific use of social media.
The mission to unify the different generations virtually makes .XYZ a special social phenomenon among TLDs, which promises to take a big ‘slice’ of the generic registration ‘pie’ in times where tolerance is a necessity.
Apart from its social role, .XYZ, which, as a letter combination, ‘strikes’ the final ‘chords’ of the Latin alphabet and ‘rings the bell’ of completeness, can be registered by anyone for any purpose.
What is specific about .SPACE domains?
.SPACE was launched on January 28, 2014 by Radix Registry, which is also in charge of many other splash-making TLDs, including .WEBSITE and .HOST.
It came to address the needs of creative minds and freelancers for a namespace that carries the spirit of creativity, freedom and entrepreneurship and that could present their own unique personality via a short, memorable and meaningful online address.
According to a recent research, there are 22 million freelance entities in the USA and their number is expected to reach 65 million by 2020. It has been estimated that there are more than 8 million freelancers in Europe. Also, there are millions of other self-employed professionals around the world in search of an individual online identity.
All this makes .SPACE a magnet for freelance prospects looking for their perfect nameSPACE and a goldmine for web hosting store owners accordingly.
