.Xyz

The XYZ file format is a chemical file format. There is no formal standard and several variations exist, but a typical XYZ format specifies the molecule geometry by giving the number of atoms with Cartesian coordinates that will be read on the first line, a comment on the second, and the lines of atomic coordinates in the following lines. The file format is used in computational chemistry programs for importing and exporting geometries. The units are generally in ångströms. Some variations include using atomic numbers instead of atomic symbols, or skipping the comment line. Files using the XYZ format conventionally have the .xyz extension.

    • XYZ slashes $10 million a year from premium stash

      XYZ.com has slashed the asking price of a few thousand “premium” .xyz domain names, in some cases by many thousands of dollars.

  • Junk drop cuts .xyz in half, .top claims volume crown

    … decline ever since. Domains generally take 45 days to drop, so it’s entirely possible XYZ.com will see further losses over the next month or so. There’s nothing unusual about seeing a so-called “junk drop” a year after a TLD launches or runs a free-domains promotion. It’s been well-understood for over a decade and has been anticipated for .xyz…

  • .xyz sets price for numeric domains at $0.65

    … XYZ.com has announced that it will charge just $0.65 wholesale for over a billion numeric domain names in .xyz.

  • Verisign data shows new gTLDs drive almost three quarters of Q2 growth

    … penny deals in June, which saw domainers acquire millions of names for essentially nothing. Meanwhile, .com and .net combined contributed just 700,000 domains to growth and .net actually shrunk by 100,000 names, its first dip since Q1 2015. The ccTLD market data presented in the DNIBs is probably not entirely reliable. Verisign is still using the December 2014 number for free ccTLD .tk, which I think is about six million names lower than its current level.
