No More Domains Available to Register


Earlier this evening, .XYZ registry CEO Daniel Negari reported that there were “[o]nly 3 LLLL .xyz domains still available for registration.”

It looks like those three domain names have now been registered, although I am not sure how many domain names are held by the regstry.

According to the “Premium Names” page within the .XYZ registry website, there are “0 Available out of 456,976” domain names.

My guess is that there are three reasons for why so many 4 letter .xyz domain names have been registered in such a short period of time:

1) Chinese domain investor demand
2) Interest in the .xyz extension that was brought on by Alphabet (Google’s parent company) using
3) Low priced registrations

Whatever the reason, this is a pretty impressive feat. Nearly half a million 4 letter .xyz domain names have been sold. According to, there are over 2.3 million registered .XYZ domain names. .XYZ is the new gTLD extension with the most domain names registered, and it has a pretty wide margin above the second largest new gTLD registry, .Top.

I don’t know how much aftermarket value domain names have (or will have in the future), but it’s interesting to witness.

    One day we will all look back on this time period as the big Chinese mania like the late 90’s dotcom bubble (stocks not domains). Meanwhile, I just took possession of what I think is a 7-figure one word household term dotcom for low 5-figures. So far 2016 has been a gift from the heavens.

    .xyz is definitely becoming more popular but I see it through a different sense. Many tools, generators, etc. are now trying to add .xyz functionality. For example, is about to launch generations for majors ngTLDs and .xyz is on their list

    Who would of thought the Chinese would impact the domain industry like that! I will be keeping an eye out on the next big Chinese domain must have.

    Investing in short chip domains in the right extensions for the last 6 months has been like waking up to Christmas every day!

    I wonder how many of these category ‘buy outs’ will survive beyond a couple years.

    Behind .top is .club. That is the sleeping giant. It doesn’t matter any longer what extension it is. They will never use these names. They are like commodities to the Chinese. Each ext. is liking buying stock in startup companies. I would beg, borrow and steal to renew all names that are 4-characters and under for the next 2-years. if you o that, you will be frigen wealthy.

      Have you been getting many good offers?

      Typical Chinese low ball offers. I am a fair minded guy and would sell at a fair price but they want to offer maybe 30% of their worth. These names rank well in search for terms like “blues guitar club”. My site was #1 for that term in google. I parked it for now due to a WP problem. Since I parked it, is is getting 50% click throughs. I own every hobby under the sun that has a club scenario to it. IMO buying llll .club names now is going to be the best investment in the net six months. If you look at the fact that EEJE group in China registered tens of thousands if llll .club names in the past 2-weeks and another group bought 1,500 or so of lll .club names last week it is telling you something.
