Default Are .xyz domains a good idea?

Hey guys, here's a hot tip, .xyz domains are going for $1.00/year on namecheap. Regular price is $13.00/year.

Is it a good idea to stock up on some of these?

hey, I think xyz also not bad, its also gTLD as .com or .net, for seo it has same opportunity but to be remembered ofcourse .com .net always better.

No matter what is your domain, matter what is on it...
GAME.XYZ better than XYZGAME.COM

Yeah they can be ok for a EMD website I suppose. Always try for .com first then .net. If those are not found you can use the others. Its ok.

Default not for xyz

for my experience i see only spam sites and lower quality sites using those extenstions so it doesnt seems like a good idea, and anyway the domain part of the hosting fees is the lesser insignificent one.

good luck.

I think it is as good as com domain.

People are just not familiar with it yet, but if you build a brand around your xyz site they will come.

People visit good sites. They don't avoid good sites if they don't have com or org domain.
