    Considering they're $1 at Namecheap, I would register them. I think .xyz will become fairly popular... anyway, no BIG THING, just fairly known by people.
    Someone is spending lots of money to make them popular, Namecheap's offer for $1/first year has been running for a long time... and Namecheap doesn't usually have this kind of discounts.
    I've also seen many registrars offering free/discounted .xyz for a limited period of time, so ... somebody is losing money to make them popular. Now that google bought abc.xyz, it'll probably help too

    Why would anyone think it's next big thing? It will end up as .info or .biz

    Useless.

    Yeah unless you've got tons of cash to market your xyz brand, it's gonna end up like .info or .biz IMO. Doesn't draw credibility from average folks.

    IMO, Those extensions are BS, honestly. We love .com and it will probably stay like that for a long time.

    since namecheap offering .xyz in $1/year. I have over 50 .xyz domains with them now. I mean you never know what will happen in future. it might become a BIG thing in near future, at least I hope so.
