    .xyz has less trust and looks like spammy, what about .icu?

    Buy whatever makes you feel better.

    ICU or XYZ are just TLDS.

    These are cheap domains. They are often used for spam.

    In fact, both of them are in the top 10 in the spammy list. But, if you get an awesome domain with those extensions, you can bank. Like say, gen.xyz, same goes with .icu.

    How about like hey.icu? Don't know if it's available, just thought something like that makes sense.

    Here's how you find out...

    Do a google search of the keywords you are targetting, and see all the domains (top 100 should work). Do you see an icu domain there? How about xyz? If you do, then you have a chance. If you don't, chances are, that it won't work.

    xyz is mostly used for churn & burn projects. icu has regular initial cost but low renewal cost, so it is used for cheaper sites like pbns, content lockers, landing pages etc.

    Yes. 1st I thought it was intensive care unit, then I check and it said it stands for I see you.


    A simple search on google will lead to many results. That's what I did.

    Domain extension it cant be spammy. Another thing is that if you have a spammy or "souspicious" site or backlink profile. That having an occured name (and extension), may help you get manually penalized, but that´s reasoning too far haha. I personally dont like those domain extensions but it´s up to you!

    I voted no. Go with your gut, they seem way too spammy for me as well. Just get the TLD's instead, they're a lot better.
