XYZ Registry Continues to Grow with Acquisition of 10 More TLDs Upping Their Total to 33

XYZ Registry continues to grow by leaps and bounds. They just acquired 10 more TLDs in one fell swoop to increase the total number of global domain extensions they administer to 33. While XYZ is nearly a decade old now, 21 of their TLDs have been added in just the past two years. The latest 10 newcomers, all acquired from Uni Naming & Registry Corp. (founded by Frank Schilling), include .Game, .Guitars, .Audio, .Christmas, .Diet, .Flowers, .Hosting, .Pics, .Mom, and LOL.

With over 3.8 million registrations, the registry's flagship TLD, .xyz, is now the world's 4th biggest gTLD, trailing only the Internet's original big three -.com, .net and .org. 

 

The registry's announcement of the acquisition noted, "These 10 TLDs were specifically selected for their growth

potential, which aligns with the XYZ Registry's mission to serve the needs of worldwide digitalization that is expanding exponentially. The .Game domain name, for example, is ideal for members of the fast-growing $167 billion gaming industry.  Members of the $21.6 billion dollar  music industry can make themselves heard with .Audio and .Guitars. Even North America's biggest holiday is covered with .Christmas, as 2020 Christmas spending crossed $850 billion in the United States alone."

XYZ CEO and Founder Daniel Negari said, "We're dedicated to making short, memorable, and intuitive domain names available to every where in the world. With these latest ten additions, I feel confident that every business, individual, or group can make their mark online with the XYZ Family of domains. I am particularly excited to make the world .LOL!"
