    just like most of you, I got the email from .whatever registry today about the big .xyz sale. It suggests registering phone numbers, number sequences, IOT appliances, anything really anything. Billions of combinations. Lol.

    If they offered these promos on renewals, then people would be tempted to keep names instead of letting them drop.

    if you sell a billion for essentially a dollar each. Instant cash flow! Lol. $880,000,000
    This domain industry is truly is entertaining. Reinjection of capital before the previous renewal drops.

    Don't sell steak to a vegetarian !

    Negari has a plan, I will stand by it for now ... But I am not buying any more .xyz domains ... With the idea of creating an internet utility from domains, I absolutely think this is genius ! Just incredible and soon we will see it as such along with keywords and extensions which will become more recognized by endusers ...

    Hmmm. Genius? The new Bitcoin? Perhaps the PT Barnum of Domains? This is great entertainment.

    I'm sure I read they will be 88 cents forever, including renewals and transfers. Only on the 6N to 9N though.... I think (I may have imagined this).
    I can see what they are trying to do here by pricing them so cheaply and hoping they will be used almost as phone numbers or addresses or device ID's etc and there could be potential for it to work... the problem is that phone numbers etc work because there is not alternative if that makes sense. Being cheap doesn't mean it will be a success when there are other choices (.com .net etc), that will be even more reputable in comparison now if spammers hoover up all the remaining .xyz. What they should have done was reserve them all from the off and sold them in bulk to a telecommunications or web hosting company (or whatever they intend them to be used for). Something like that anyway lol.
