The New Domain Extension For Every Website, Everywhere, .xyz Is Now Open for General Registration

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/02/14 -- Webnames.ca, Canada's original domain registrar and a leading provider of web solutions in Canada, is pleased to announce that it is now offering its customers one of the most flexible and affordable new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs), .xyz.

As the last three letters of the Latin alphabet and not bound to a specific meaning, .xyz is the go-to new domain extension for customers who seek a short, memorable domain name without being restricted by a label. Webnames.ca is offering this universally appealing domain extension at just $21, making it one of the most accessible new gTLDs available. The .xyz registry expects over 1 million .xyz domain names to be registered within the first year.

Webnames.ca has made hundreds of new gTLDs available to its customers, in addition to providing trusted domain management support to help businesses protect their brands and trademarks. This next-generation, truly generic new domain is short and easy to remember, while transcending all language barriers. As their tagline illustrates, .xyz provides everyone from individuals, startups and global brands, the opportunity to complement their online presence with .xyz domain names.

"Our mission with .xyz is to bring innovation back to the domain namespace," says CEO and Founder Daniel Negari, who is the youngest registry operator at 28 years old. "We are excited to work with Webnames.ca to provide their customers with domain names that offer choice, competition, and value throughout the ecosystem."

"While many of the new domain extensions we have recently launched are specific to an industry or location, .xyz is truly generic and applicable across all industries and geographies. We are advising all our business clients to at least register their .xyz domain on a protective basis if they have not yet come up with their innovative strategy on how to optimize this domain. We are excited to partner with Mr. Negari's company to offer .xyz domain names to the Canadian and global market," says Cybele Negris, Co-Founder, President, & CEO of Webnames.ca.
