.XYZ Hits 2 Million Registrations
Los Angeles-based domain name registrar XYZ says it has just passed 2,000,000 registrations on its domain extension, just over a year after reaching the 1M registrations mark in June of 2015. The company, led by startup veteran Daniel Negari, said that over 700,000 of its registrations so far have been in China. The company said some of the highlights of the new domains include Starship.xyz, the robot delivery firm founded by Skype co-founder Janus Friis, Crowding.xyz, a Mexican crowdfunding site; and Voter.xyz, a site that helps match users to political candidates using a Tinder-like swiping app.
