According to ENS developer ‘Nick Johnson’ the ENS users would now be able to claim .xyz domains to access their wallets and other services. Mentioning further he said on his official web blog post that this new possibility of domain name option came from some testing and development, and is now fully supported by the ENS mainnet. Interested Customers would be now able to buy the domains through any Service Provider using it just like any another .eth domain which means that the users can associate their wallets, smart contracts, produce new sub-domains and a lot more.
While EasyDNS – one such DNS registrar – has created a simpler wizard for adding the domain, usersmay alsomanually add .xyz, he wrote.
Adding further, Johnson added that:
“We’re rolling out our ENS supportat firston .xyzto giveit a try,howeverthe most effectivefactor concerningthis isthat itdoes notneedany cooperation or permission fromeachDNS [top-level domain]. Once we’ve hadan opportunityto checkhowit performs,we’ll plan toroll ittoallalternativeDNS TLDs that supportthe requiredfeatures — whichcovers nearlyall of them.”

The new .xyz domainis the2ndrankingdomain that ENS supports, following .eth earlier this year. TLD’sare the bestand highest set of domains onthe web, andareneededfor visiting anyweb siteon the global web.
