Adult / Porn Sites: .XXX Domain Name Approval — Any Problems?

Posted on 20 March 2011 by author

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers or ICANN has finally approved those websites with the .xxx domain names thus opening the way for more porn or adult sites in the internet. This controversial step has been taken by the ICANN after the various oppositions made by some conservative groups that are against these companies that promote pornography and adult entertainment. However, even if ICANN has approved the use of the .xxx domain names they have still delayed deciding whether to open the floodgates for other suffixes as well.

The .xxx is now officially part of the list of the generic top level domains existing as of present thus, joining other domain names such as those ending in .com, .net and .org. Basically, all the URLs ending in the .xxx will obviously be containing sexually oriented and adult entertainment contents that are verified to be neither fraudulent nor illegal in nature. The approval for this domain name has long been asked by some advocated since the year 2003, but was only approved just recently because of some controversies.

The sale of the .xxx domain name will begin in the Q2 of 2011. As of present, there were already around 230,000 URLs that have been reserved and more adult websites at present are also expected to be forced to buy its .xxx version even if this will not be really something mandatory for them. These new domain names will be registered through the ICM Registry. ICM is expecting to see more traffic as well as higher profits as this new domain is expected to become the trusted brand for porn enthusiasts out there.

There were entirely different reactions on the approval of the .xxx domain name, some are positive and there are also some negative reactions as well. However, only one thing is definitely sure and that is this move will potentially be a great step in boosting the porn industry, which means an increase in revenue as well. But this is not some good news for those conservative groups out there who are against these porn and adult sites.

With the approval of the .xxx domain names, we can expect that more domain name suffixes to be opened in the future as well. So let us just wait and see what will happen next.
