Five months after the extension .XYZ was banned by the Chinese government, Chinese registrars can once again sell “.XYZ” domain namess.
This, in any case is what the registries West.cn and Net.cn proposed on their website on September 25, indicating that they were "overjoyed" to resume sales.
XYZ.com revealed in May that the new gTLD domains were temporarily unavailable via Chinese registrars, after the Chinese government suspended their license.
The reason for the suspension has always been somewhat vague, but there are indications that this suspension is due to identity checks. Indeed, before each registration and use of a domain name in China, an identity check is carried out by a government entity, Real Names Verification (RNV).
Original and universal, the “.XYZ” domain extension is now one of the most popular gTLDs with 6.7 million domains (+ 275% in 2016).
On the one hand, this extension designates the last three letters of the alphabet and on the other hand, three different generations: X (people born between 1960 and 1980), Y (people born between 1980 and 2000) and Z (people born in and after 2000).
This multigenerational extension will therefore suit any type of site.
