Reserve Your XXX Domain Name

by Editor

First of all, don’t go with that image thing above. I don’t want you to think that I’m promoting any kind of porn or anything related to it. On Friday, March 18th 2011, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved a new top-level domain (TLD) name ending with .XXX with the support of 9 of 16 board members of ICANN weighing balance equally between ‘for’ and ‘against’.


What are .XXX Domain?
.XXX is a new Top Level Domain (TLD), specifically designed for the benefit of the global online adult entertainment industry.
 It will work alongside the other existing ICANN accredited domain name such as .com, .net, .org etc. That means now it will be more easier for parents and employers to identify any kind of porn website ending with URL .XXX. Its been said that domains ending with .xxx selling or displaying porn content will neither be fraudulent nor illegal. Also, if you are thinking to buy a xxx domain name it would cost you from $60 to $375.

.XXX Approval Issue!!!
– With the approval of the xxx domain there has been a raising issue among the online pornography businesses and activists about censorships by governments from across the world who would now be able to easily identify porn sites.
– According to Economic Times, the Government of India plans to block all .xxx domain sites once they begin to be deployed. Moreover along with India many other countries from the Middle East and Indonesia opposed the grant of the .XXX domain and planning to block the whole domain as it goes against the IT Act and Indian laws.
– Due to this it will cost porn webmasters millions in unnecessary fees and make porn sites easier to block by governments.

How to Buy .XXX Domain?

The sale of .xxx domains will be soon available in Quarter 2 May and August 2011, but you can still reserve your xxx domain name at the ICM registrar.
