information Top Topics: Jack Dorsey's New Domain Name; Which Landing Page Should I Use?...

Namecheap
In this week's Top Topics, we look at the .XYZ domain name that Jack Dorsey's new corporation is using, an investor asks about which landing page is best for them to use, and which TLDs should a company register? Elsewhere, we also begin a list of plural domains owned by companies.


Jack Dorsey Names New Company Block, Using Block.xyz
Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s other company, Square, has adopted a new corporate name. The newly-formed Block encompasses Square as well as other ventures including Cash App, Spiral, and music streaming service Tidal.

Dorsey and his team chose to acquire Block.xyz as the domain name for his new corporation. Here, investors react to the news of this high profile .XYZ domain, which was reportedly acquired for $4,999.

Which Landers Should I Use?
In order to effectively sell domain names, most domain investors point their names to one of a number of landing page providers. From dedicated services such as Efty to marketplaces such as Sedo or Afternic, investors have a wide choice of services at their disposal.

That’s why it’s sometimes difficult to choose which provider to use. Many investors test various services for efficacy and to test sell through rates. Here, though, a domainer asks for opinions on where they should point their domains. You can vote in the poll attached to this discussion.

Which TLDs Should a Company Register?
Brand protection and domain extension registration are common concerns for businesses large and small. Knowing which domain extensions to register and which ones to ignore can be difficult to ascertain.

Here, a company representative is asking for opinions on which domain extensions a brand should own. Aside from .COM, .NET, and a handful of country-specific extensions, which TLDs would be beneficial for a company to own?

Plural Domains Owned by Companies
Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft are just three of thousands of companies that own premium one-word .COM domains. Next.com, Messenger.com, and Start.com are three examples that come to mind of domains owned by these three.

When it comes to plural domains, less attention is focused on these, but not in this discussion. Here, we’re looking for investors to share plural domains either actively used or owned by companies. Examples so far include Toms.com, Corporates.com, and Nationals.com

Really interesting that Jack Dorsey selected block.xyz as the umbrella domain, sort of like Google and Alphabet with abc.xyz.

With Shopify having picked up shop.xyz, the momentum seems to continue to build and perhaps be extending outside the original crypto/defi/blockchain focus of so many of the early big .xyz sales.

I had missed noticing the landers and plurals topics until reading your post, so off to check them out now.

Thanks for another great compilation, @James Iles !

What if two big brands switched domains?
- square.com redirects to squareup.com
(what if - square.com goes to squarespace.com)
- squarespace's block.com goes to squareup >> block.xyz
