What are your thoughts on .xyz in the coming year or two ?
All Sold out when they were touted as the next Bitcoin and only .88 cents.
You mean they are all taken ?
The only extension I can not invest money on, I hate this extension with passion, very worthless I don't even understand the meaning of this extension.
I guess none of us can predict the future on this, so time will tell
While the aftermarket sales have been weak the last two years, I have good feelings re .xyz. It has more real world use than most new extensions. I like it as a general purpose extension that is not based on English. I dont think we will see many large sales in 2019 but I predict the sales volume will be up compared to this year.
I hope so because I just hand regged about 30 for a total of around 32 bucks. Won't lose a fortune but maybe a little money to be made
Only 1 buck but worth the risk in my opinion
- I sold a few ones in 2014 and 2015.
- I sold many in 2016 and 2017.
- I sold only one in 2018.
I will only keep my very best one-words...
you already had your answer if it worth will you get it at 1 buck ask yourself this.
.xyz is dead
Yep I think so . However I spend more on a bottle of water
You get something out of the water - hydration. Xyz domains are just a waste. Just burn your money, at least it will look cool.
Lol Keith, I'm sure you must of spent quite a lot money on domains in the past that have never sold. Even .coms struggle most of the time. Only a small percentage sell and cost a lot more. So on risk assessment alone, .xyz might be a viable option if the keyword is right
As usually, if you can take nice keyword name for standard renewal, of course take it
Xyz sells well when the keyword is good. Keyword should really have an appeal, so be very selective, and again, renewal must be standard (around 8-10 at most registrars).
In addition: I would stay away from word1word2 names, definitely, very slim chances of resale in 2018.
VRcasino is a decent keyword
Well, one can think so, but only unless we go to uniregistry.com, and insert string "vrcasino" into search field, and find 224 available alternatives in new gTLD space (some very good, for $1,99)...
this can tell us what are the chances of selling such name...I think not much in 2018.
I really would go only for pure keywords like
etc..just 1 worders.
Historically, New Gtld's top sales are when the keyword and the extension create a meaningful string. It's very hard to come up with a meaningful string with the .xyz extension. Perhaps Google took the only possible one with abc.xyz. Concluding, I will remind that New Gtld investing should be focused on meaningful strings and not on the extensions.
About half of the .xyz sales in NameBio are 4 characters or less. Agree with those who say single words or short acronyms or numbers most likely sales.
I think in this sense .xyz is different from most other ngTLDs. As you correctly point out meaningful phrases across dot will not match. The word must be very strong and not available in other general purpose extensions.
Is this the kind of thing ?
Ok, I confess, I have a 3 worder - I Love You .xyz
Some guy is selling them for 10$ each here, he would take 2
This extension is doa, we killed it before normal people even knew what it was. Registry killed it too.
Spammers killed it. Having it's email blacklisted didn't help. I guess you don't value time, and those dollars you could feed a homeless person, not some registry.
Go out into the street and find some real life business using this extension, come back and post when you do
Separate names with a comma.
