.XYZ domains are some of the most well known New Domain extensions on the market—helped, in part, by Alphabet’s adoption of the domain abc.xyz. With the Registry’s introduction of a new program called the 1.111B Class, .XYZ could continue to grow in popularity in the coming years.
What exactly is this 1.11B Class thing?
1.11B stands for the 1.111 billion character combinations possible when you look at domains between the numeric range of 000000.xyz -and 999999999.xyz. It’s a block of domains that has been classified as non-traditional in the past, but .XYZ is encouraging innovation by making these domains as budget friendly as possible.
Any domains in the 1.11B Class now cost $0.99 per year—every year—to register, renew, and transfer. It’s one of the lowest domain prices you’ll find anywhere on the web.
How could I use a numerical .XYZ domain?
Sure a $0.99 deal sounds pretty sweet, but what can you actually do with these domains? .XYZ has a few ideas:
- Phone numbers and other personal identifiers (only the ones that are safe to share of course)
- Smart device connections for the Internet of Things
- Advanced network communications
- Virtual currencies and other tradable assets
- Vanity digital identifiers
This is only the beginning of the possibilities available with a numerical .XYZ domain—and more uses for this domain class are sure to become apparent as more users choose .XYZ for their business and personal websites.
