    In relation to the 1.111B Class .xyz domains, Uncle Frank also said, “invest responsibly, and good luck to you” ... or was that a SportsBet ad ... nevermind :confused:

    Just noticed that they use aydacfu.com as a redirect to aydacfu.xyz :D
    Now that's showing confidence in your extension. :p

    .xyz is likely to have lost 66% of its registration base within the next few months. The new promotion doesn't look to be doing much to stem the tide, over 250,000 domains lost in the last 36 hours since it started.

    Great stories for everyone to read. buyer beware of the new extensions. They either jack up the renewal fee's, close down the extension later or do this claw back if they think you maybe registered something they could sell themselves higher. Disgusting.

    DUMP your .XYZ's and other .crap.
    Don't be ripped off or scammed by the fake hype or low cost initial promo prices.

    The girl at Coles told me my purchase was $7.96 the other day, I had to explain I didn't have a one cent coin and she would have to round it down

    I didn't think they had done that style of promo, I know .xyz did. However I do agree if you asked anyone in the street if they have been to a.club website they would say "wtf is that?"
