Company buys two .xyz domain names after Google increases awareness of the domain.
Want an example of how awareness can propel new top level domain aftermarket sales? An enterprise software company bought Customer.xyz and Customers.xyz, presumably after hearing that Google chose abc.xyz for its new holding company domain name.
These domains were two of the 461 transactions on Sedo’s domain name sales platform for the past week. Other buyers include a satellite company, a staffing company and a company creating vaccines for cancer.
Here’s the list:
