Register a .xyz domain name extension

Need a universal domain name extension? The .xyz domain is for you. Unlike many others, a .xyz domain name can be used internationally. Set yourself apart from the competition by getting an extension that’s less saturated than .com or .co.uk.

About .xyz

The .xyz extension is a generic top-level domain created in 2014 and is managed by the CentralNic registry. It represents a great advantage in a context where choosing a traditional generic domain name becomes difficult. It is also often very affordable, which is another reason for its success. Today, several million websites use the .xyz domain extension. It has become a well-known and widely used extension, alongside other generic top-level domains (gTLDs).

Why buy a .xyz domain name?

As a generic domain, .xyz does not have any registration restrictions. This means that anyone can reserve a domain name with this extension and link their website to it. Its generic nature made it a popular domain name in its first year of use. The number of .xyz users has been steadily increasing since then.

What's more, its distinctiveness offers you a wide range of domain name choices compared to more popular extensions like .com or .co.uk, meaning you have more choice when it comes to choosing your future domain name.
