Regarding the financing issue, many people may question why Elixir spent $50,000 to purchase .xyz just for redirection without formally using it as the official domain?

Based on the domain, it is evident that Elixir is engaging in brand protection. In the absence of acquiring .com, they first acquired .xyz that was available. This can bring some traffic and prevent malicious parties from exploiting it.

Furthermore, Elixir.com is an established enterprise. The domain was registered in August 1993, making it 31 years old today, with a significant historical background. Therefore, they currently have no chance to upgrade to a .com domain.
