.XYZ has become the first new gTLD to break through the 750,000 mark for domain name registrations.
According to the .XYZ registry the number of registered domain names is 750,073. The 750,000th domain name to be registered was Chez.XYZ that was registered today at the domain name registrar Gandi.net.
We at TheDomains.com were the first to figure out that NetworkSolutions, which is part of the Web.com group (WWWW), were stuffing free .XYZ domain names into customer’s accounts when the extension first launched.
However the number of .XYZ domain names registered at Network Solutions currently sits at 376,612 and has been stalled at that level for a few months, so within a matter of hours or days the percentage of .XYZ domain name registered at Network Solutions will fall below 50%.
.XYZ is closing in on a legacy domain extension, .Mobi which sits around 830,000 registrations. With the total number of new gTLD registrations sitting around 3.5 Million that means that over 20% of all new gTLD registrations are .XYZ domain names. Read more
