Looks like you're gonna have some great info at the writephp.xyz domain!I use it for a blog. http://writephp.xyz/ -- a blog about PHP tutorials that actually explains "how and why" for the complete noob. Targeted at some friends at the university who prefer working on networks but are required to write code for their other classes.
The biggest .xyz domain purchase I could think of would be Alphabet's (Google's parent company) -- http://abc.xyz/

You sorta answered what I was getting to ... Should sites with the .xyz TLD be sites that "offer the ABC's of bla bla bla" - That sort of similar concept, only "offer the XYZ's of bla bla bla"---- kinda like your blog whose tagline could read "The XYZ's of HTML5 and PHP" --- I'm reading that sentence and not even sure if makes sense LOL. I'm considering a few domain purchases and I see the .xyz TLD as an option. I'm strugging to see how or why you'd use it.
What made you decide .xyz as opposed to .com or .net or .org/etc...?
I'M a cheapskate too bahahaha. I'm searching domains at namecheap and 1&1 as I type. I see the $1 .xyz domain at namecheap and I'm thinking ... Should I grab it!?! But I truly struggling to see how an .xyz domain can be relevant in the concept of a website...As for the reason why I chose .xyz: 1) The .COM was taken, 2) I can't think of another good .COM name and 3) It's $1 at NameCheap, bundled with a $1.99 SSL Cert I could use anywhere else. lol. I'm a cheapskate
Hiya George! Hope things are good with you.Using http2ssl.xyz for HTTP/2, SSL and Letsencrypt free SSL certificate integration testing https://community.centminmod.com/threads/letsencrypt-ssl-certificate-on-centmin-mod-nginx-http-2.4250/
Oh yeah. I know. The pricing can be quite a bit higher with the newer/longer TLDs. I made another post and listed a few of the pricing options. It's a bit tricky - because some of the "sale" domains are gimmicky. You can initially register a .online TLD for $7.88 - but the the price increases dramatically to $29.88 per year after the initial one. Similar with the .new ($12.88 to initially register - $19.88 per year aftter...)The bonus price is nice, but what will happen in the future? I bought a new tld at a knockdown price assuming renewal to be roughly in line with a dotcom. It isn't. Renewal price is $42. With established tld's, you're fairly certain of stable pricing, new ones less so. Particularly if they're offering first year for a dollar.
You could pay for five or ten years I guess. That'd give you a fair guesstimate as to the real cost.
Yep. Someone scooped it up and it's pointing to http://gen.xyz/ -- Seems a great business idea actually. The domains are going for $1.00 each at other registrars. I'd imagine whoever owns that domain is making quite the profit by selling their .xyz TLDs at the $10 each pricetag. Wish I'd thought of it LOLGood one, lol.
You just know somebody is going to register that for a laugh.
Edit: I see somebody already did.
Riveting article! Thanks for the info share.Its starting to have large catchment in China, China do not like to have vowels in their domains which include a,e,i,o,u and the letter v.
That normally apply's to short 3 / 4 character domains which is why only some 4 letter.com's are valuable to the Chinese market ( who are paying big bucks for them currently )
I would assume with these .xyz domains the Chinese are thinking along the same lines. This article was from earlier this year but there has been some significant value sales since then, will give you the general reasoning behind the Chinese choices at the moment : http://www.dnselect.com/value-of-letters-in-short-domains-chinese-market/
worth and value for anything is always in the eye of the beholderAnd wow. QSBB.com is currently at $,1525 with 13 bids - so the article referenced. Who'd ever know such a domain to be so popular with the Chinese market...? Or ANY market??? I'd never have thought so. Anyway. Very interesting to know!
I suppose so. Yes. Very true. But I wouldn't necessarily shell out $2 for QSBB.com - I just found it interesting that such a domain could be so popular in the Chinese market. The only use for such a domain in the American market may be if vBulletin went directly under and a new script enters the marketplace: QuitSobbingBulletinBoard | Wipe Your Tears Build A Super Board QSBB.comworth and value for anything is always in the eye of the beholder
indeed.. reminds me of one of my friend's hobbies is collecting snakes (yes live snakes) and he paid AUD$5,000 for one - personally I thought he was crazy as I wouldn't keep one even if you paid me $5k I don't see that value !I suppose so. Yes. Very true. But I wouldn't necessarily shell out $2 for QSBB.com
Diff'rent strokes for different folks I imagine. But honestly - I'd keep one for $5K!indeed.. reminds me of one of my friend's hobbies is collecting snakes (yes live snakes) and he paid AUD$5,000 for one - personally I thought he was crazy as I wouldn't keep one even if you paid me $5k I don't see that value !
