The less characters the better

The most successful new top level domain (TLD) still is .xyz. Thanks to the creative and addressive marketing strategy, there are more than 1.6 millions domain names registered under this TLD.

Just as other TLDs, .xyz sold 1, 2 and 3 character domain names. And usually the fee for these domain names was higher than the list price. Chinese market is very active at the moment and highly appreciates short domain names. Almost all domain names are sold for up till 10’000 USD.

In the report published by .xyz you can see that only 23% of the short domain names (1-3 characters) are still available. 85% of 4-character domain names are still available for registration. Only 21% of numeric domain names are not yet registered.

It should be noted, however, that many of these domain names are registered by domainers and most probably will be available later for a higher price.
