.XYZ Special Offers to Mark 4 Year Anniversary


The .XYZ Registry will be celebrating its fourth anniversary by offering two deals on renewals and registrations of .XYZ domain names. The offers will run from May 30 – June 30, 2018. I was told that 30 domain registrars have signed up to offer special promotions to customers, and the Registry is anticipating that other registrars will sign up shortly. Some of the participating domain registrars include Name.com, Namecheap, Uniregistry, Alibaba, and Chengdu West.

Here are the two special offers (suggested by the registry but may differ at each registrar):

  • $6.99 for 1-year .xyz renewals
  • $6.99 for 2-year registrations (total cost)

In addition to these deals, the .XYZ Registry will be making a $1 charitable donation for each purchase using one of these special offers at a participating registrar. Here’s what the Registry said about this:

“To celebrate, we are announcing a special sale to support a free and open internet for everyone. XYZ will donate $1 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) or another charitable educational local institution for every .xyz domain that is registered for 2 years or renewed for one year at participating registrars in June 2018. XYZ has committed to at least donate $10,000 although we expect to beat this number by a significant margin.”

The .XYZ registry has the second most registrations of the new gTLD extensions. According to nTLDStats.com, over 2 million .xyz domain names are registered to date.

    Not even for free, .xyz is worthless junk.
    Real junk is way more useful 🙂
