.xyz is a new gTLD that was proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program and became available to register on June 2, 2014. The TLD is not targeted toward and niche or category of websites. It aims to be a real "generic" gTLD for general purposes.
The sunrise period for .XYZ domain names began on 20 March 2014 and finished on 20 May 2014. On 02 June 2014, .XYZ became publicly available for registration.
In 2015, .xyz reached 1.5 million domain name registrations, possibly boosted by Google's decision to use abc.xyz for its corporate (Alphabet Inc.) website, the biggest corporation to use the extension. The TLD is being marketed as a new generation: gen.xyz.
.xyz ranks #13 among all domain extensions, and #7 among all generic extensions (gTLDs). Currently, there are 3.6M registered .xyz domain names. XYZ.COM LLC is the current registry of .xyz extension.
