Dot-XXX Porn Finds a Home on the Web

The internet will soon have its own red-light district. A new domain extension, Dot-XXX, is coming to a computer near you! Guess what kind of material this expansion was expressly created to concentrate in? If you guessed pornography, you guessed right. After pornsite or more of squabbling and legal challenges, ICANN, the governing body for Internet addresses, passed a resolution which will enable the new domain to start working sometime in early 2011.

ICM Registry out of Marina Del Rey, the secretary for the expansion asserts that more than a hundred thousand names have already been pre-registered and another half-million or are anticipated before the expected unveiling in early 2011. A number of these early buyers will be firms that want to make sure their trademarks are improved (porn.com) or unsullied (can you imagine Disney letting a pornographer to restrain Disney.XXX?)


It will surely make it a lot easier for some to find the entertainment they need; for worried parents, at least, it will mean a chance to block an whole expansion of less than desired websites. While this enhanced capacity to block sites can look like an improvement from the machine, keep in mind that porn sellers will resist having all their resources”ghettoized” (their term) and want the maximum exposure (no pun intended) due to their merchandise: and sex.com will probably draw more flies than sex.xxx for a while to come. As one Web pundit succinctly put it,”While all Dot-XXX sites may contain pornography, not all pornography sites will necessarily be Dot-XXX!” Parents do not let your guard down.
