2) .TECHNOLOGY

Similar to .TECH, but not quite as popular. According to ntldstats.com, .TECH largely dominates with over 322,000 domain name registrations to date, compared to over 32,000 for .TECHNOLOGY, so you might have more chances to find the available domain name you really want with this TLD.

3) .AI

Originally intended to be the country code domain extension for the small island of Anguilla, .AI has been widely adopted by the artificial intelligence world. A good reason to register a .AI is that it offers a lot more availability than other TLDs, so you will have more chances of finding the domain name you want. Although .AI is still officially a ccTLD, it can be registered by anyone and is treated by search engines like any gTLD.

4) .XYZ

With over 3 million domain registrations, .XYZ is the third most popular new gTLD. This extension became very popular after Google’s holding company, Alphabet, registered the domain abc.xyz.

.XYZ could be a great choice for your tech business. A number of successful companies have already made this choice, such as Starship Technologies, launched by the founders of Skype.
