    Wow!

    Today is the last day of Google as its now being conglomerated to a newer company "Alphabet" launched by Larry page & Sergey Brin.

    This news is now viral over internet and warming up the internet environment that new era will be born today?
    Link to more detailed discussion on it by CNN News: Link

    So what you guys think now .xyz domains worth is going to increase or will have no effect?
    Is it going to bring an unstable change?

    I still think .com will be king regardless, cant take away all those years. But IMO xyz will be doing well, the more pumps it gets like this thread right here and the news articles the farther it gets. The tentacles go deep for xyz.

    Edit:

    You cant say this isn't helping xyz one way or another.

    Those were from the announcement of it.

    Today (or Monday) is the day it actually happens, but I don't anticipate much will change as a result of it.

    Okay, then if you read and look carefully...
    Google is NOT ending today or any other day.
    Alphabet, as reported in August, is the holding company for google and a few other companies.

    But aren't you guys considering the amount of .xyz domaina registered and the hype worth of current singular names is inceeasing day by day as Alphabet is being launched?

    Its a bigger company holding Google and its siblings and it can come up with some new features on .xyz extension same like google playstore or something??

    If someting relevant launched on .xyz then where you see this extension future?

    Sensationalism to indicate that Google is ending today (or Monday)... as a company name traded on the stock market. ;)

    .xyz will fall flat once again - they still have a lawsuit to contend with, and once it is settled (with .xyz paying some damages) people will take note of that.

    After all, the lawsuit is over .xyz disparaging .com and allegedly misrepresenting how well .xyz is doing - which Verisign is 100% right about.

    Just follow the money, .COM will never falter in our lifetimes.

    Some are, a lot are not, I don't think it will ever replace .com completely, but, will it put a dent on .com if this continues? It can, however small or big it may be I don't know. Though I can take a wild guess why many people on here do not want to see that happening.

    Domainers are making money off of ridiculous .com names, I do too, there is no problem with that. But remember this is kind of being billed as a 2nd option to the availability problem .com has. I can't guess as to the number of people who will say "can't register the com, ill take xyz instead", but there like I said, anything that has the potential to hurt com will not be liked.

    Oh brother. Are you guys talking about an extension that's 118,000,000 regs behind .com? That ends with the letters x y and z? That has only 7 reported sales (according to Namebio) over $1,000 in over a year? The one whose reg numbers are buoyed by $1 domains? That one?

    I guess Google is the king in market not .com and its Google itself because of which .com extension is at top so Only kind k mean Google has the tendency to drive traffic from .com to .xyz i know it might not gona happen but just feeling the fight of king designation between .com and Google.

    No offence. :)

    Google could be setting up for a huge change in their algorithms that will show sites with GTLD and CCTLD first in search results?? If they did this the .com could definitely suffer.

    Imagine how easy it would be for Google to kill .com if that was the goal. The easiest way would be for Google to penalize websites that use .com in their search results and rankings.

    Poof, .com would be dead.

    I'm not saying this will ever happen, for a variety of reasons, but it's an example to illustrate a point:

    Don't ever bet on anything being forever, because you'll lose that bet every time.

    I got a secret information has that .com will be dead by end of 2015. Start selling your premium .coms now. You can start from me. Sell your 3L and 4L .coms to me for $20 and $5 respectively. You can buy 20 .xyz selling your 3L. com to me. Don't miss this chance. :P
