The new global domain extension becomes part of the Internet’s governance structure
Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/30/2013 -- XYZ.COM, the Internet registry operator behind the new .xyz and .College domain names, joined ICANN’s gTLD Registries Stakeholder Group this December. The stakeholder group advises ICANN on its policy development. As one of the first approved extensions in ICANN’s new domain extension program, .xyz has been making waves throughout the Internet with its innovative promotional campaigns. The registry has already partnered with a number of domestic and international registrars to offer low-cost domain names in Q2 2014 for users around the world to build flexible and innovative websites.
ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is a nonprofit private organization responsible for the coordination of the global Internet's systems of unique identifiers. The gTLD Registries Stakeholder Group is one of a number of stakeholder groups that make up ICANN’s bottom-up, multi-stakeholder governance model. As part of the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO), the Registries Stakeholder Group provides important input to ICANN’s Board of Directors, who ultimately make the decisions affecting the governing Internet and its namespace.
.xyz is one of the first new domain extensions that will be released as part of ICANN’s new gTLD program. While many of these new extensions will serve niche markets, .xyz is for every website, everywhere. From companies looking for innovative ways to connect with their customers to individuals seeking a unique and memorable domain name, .xyz is a flexible platform created to fit everyone’s needs.
XYZ.COM is represented in the gTLD Registries Stakeholder Group by its Founder Daniel Negari. As ICANN’s youngest registry operator, Negari has consistently been on the cutting edge of promoting his new .xyz and .College domain extensions.
“The mission of .xyz is to bring choice, accessibility and innovation to the Internet” said Negari. “Joining the Registries Stakeholder Group gives us one more tool to help make our vision a reality.”
