the performance of .xyz domain on google is not so far good as other top order extensions. i had few domains on .xyz but it was tough to get a palce in google. just like .nu, .ku domains.

I honestly like the .XYZ appeal as it has no distinct boundaries and represents some kind of 'revolution' in terms of domain name extensions. Perhaps it's I was simply sold by their marketing techniques.

I have one question though, - have any of you saw any XYZ website to reach good organic rankings with usual SEO tactics?

Their marketing is what tanked this top-level domain. It's current rep is on par or probably even worse than .info. .XYZ used to run $0.01 registration promotions, so that flooded the registry with spammers and opportunists. To the point when top domain registrars are dropping their support for this TLD.

I haven't seen any, apart from the better known abc.xyz (I feel like the only reason Google went for it for their new parents company Alphabet is because it makes perfect domain for their name). And we don't see any major site based on .xyz perhaps for the above reasons. No serious organization is going to build their business based on that gTLD.

I don't really see a use for .xyz myself.

Nope, not in the slightest.

I've never once developed a website on an .xyz domain, and I have no plans to.

I once registered a dozen .xyz domains on sale for a cent at Namecheap back in June 2016, and not a single domain sold at auction, and it was difficult to get rid off them with giveaways as well.

That in itself is enough to tell me it's not worth further investment, or any serious websites.

For me the only difference is the convenience and the trust of having .com instead .xyz. People are used to typing website.com instead of website.xyz. You will think twice accessing those website that has .xyz. but functionality are actually the same with the other TLD's.

Ranking of .xyz extension is not the problem, actual problem is the content on the website. If there are proper SEO techniques applied then .xyz will not have any ranking issue.

But normally, .com extension are more preferred. Those are commonly use .

.xyz domain is very cheap so usually this kind of domain user are spammer but its not compulsory to being used by only spammer. Trust level for this domain is very law so because of this reason no one would like to buy these domains.

In case of SEO part. I don't think there will be any problem. It will work same just like .com domains. You just need to focus on keywords.

Bought one to manage some private servers (they need hostnames). Registered those $0.99/year (renewable) number-based domains from gen.xyz.

It sucks that I have to contact support every time I want to register a custom nameserver for DNS. I'm pretty sure other providers have automated modules for it but that left a bad taste in my mouth.

If you think that .xyz domain will affect your domain performance then note that there isn't a thing called domain performance. Your website performance completely depends on where you host your website.

It is important to note that as of June 2016, .xyz is the 4th most largest and popular domain after .com, .net and .org. Also, this domain's popularity exploded when Google’s parent company Alphabet took the address of abc.xyz.

And why do you think that is? It is because the registrar has lowered the price of registration to nothing, attracting massive amount of spammers.

Google's decision can be explained. ABC.xyz is a fantastic domain for a company called Alphabet. It was a brand-driven decision more than anything.
