Google’s ABC.xyz triggers an avalanche of new .xyz registrations


Good has just opened a floodgate of new .xyz domain registrations, according to a blog by theDomains,
The .XYZ registry got thrown into the world stage last night when Google announced the formation of a new parent company, Alphabet which would be using the domain name abc.xyz.
.XYZ got over 6,000 registrations yesterday including hundreds which played off either the “ABC” theme, or Google and/or off the word Alphabet, including abcgoogle.xyz, alphabetgoogle.xyz, alphabetgroup.xyz, alphabetholdings.xyz, abcandroid.xyz, abcdefghijkimnopqrstuvw.xyz, alphabetinc.xyz
