    hello everyone what is the range short and 1 word domain like car.xyz or money.xyz can be sold according to you?
    do you think there is demand for this extension?

    thanks in advance

    There might be some value if the word is good enough. But don't expect much, car dot xyz was sold for $255 in 2018.

    See these lists of related sales (with the mention that Namebio does not cover all markets, so some valuable .xyz names may have been sold without us knowing):

    Based on the amount of spam we previously received from xyz domains, I would say the value is less than zero.

    Though the spam is nowhere near the level it used to be (and even then it was still less than what we experienced with dot icu ), I believe this extension's value will never recover.

    Also, I've yet come across a legitimate xyz site in the wild.

    My 2 cents.

    Hi @Jurgen Wolf

    Can you please provide us the spamhaus spam index for .xyz .com and some popular extensions?

    Thanks

    There is a good value for keyword .xyz domains. Please hold on to them if they are not having premium renewals.

    As you have mentioned car.xyz and money.xyz, They seems to be having premium renewals.
