.XYZ, the domain name extension run by 28 year-old entrepreneur Daniel Negari is gaining steam, and quickly. Last week, Daniel announced a deal with Go Daddy on Facebook, a deal that plugs .XYZ into the largest domain name distribution network in the world.
Yes, it really is “go time” and with a featured talk at the largest domain name conference in the world (DOMAINfest) it is clear that Daniel is really kicking it into high gear. Pre-registrations for .XYZ are already available and for only $14.99/each making it one of the lowest priced new gTLDs on the market.
I’ve had a number of people ask me why I’m such a fan of .XYZ and I’ll tell you why. I like .XYZ for the same reason that I love 3L .COMs, it’s short and easy-to-remember. At the same time, and unlike .COM, .XYZ has big plans to provide some very nice perks for startups branding on .XYZ domains.
You tell me, which is easier to spell and remember, MyStartup.ventures, MyStartup.holdings, or MyStartup.xyz? If you’re one of those people that thinks society as a whole will never remember any TLD except for .COM then I have to say, the 90’s called and they want their way of thinking back.
Daniel has assembled an amazing team and now with Go Daddy as a partner I can tell you this rocketship is now packed with fuel and ready for liftoff in June.
