Porn sites to get .xxx domain soon?

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 25 Jun 2010 16:31 User comments (12)

Porn sites to get .xxx domain soon? The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has approved the motion forward for a .xxx top-level domain for porn sites today, passing the decision on to the ICANN Governmental Advisory Committee which has final say.
However, adds ICANN spokesman Brad White: "The board approved the movement forward on .xxx, but .xxx itself has not been approved."

The ICANN GAC, which is a group of 100 governments, will not take up the issue, banking on public popularity and the recommendations of the ICANN board.

ICANN Chairman Peter Dengate Thrush says he expects .xxx to be a reality "by 2011."

Notes Stuart Lawley, chairman of ICM Registry that has been trying to get the domain approved for years: "It's been a long time coming, but I'm excited about the fact that .xxx will soon become a reality. This is great news."

ICANN actually rejected the .xxx domain in 2007, but following an expert ruling by an independent review board, the rejection was overturned.

so much for the commercial domain. we should have a .game .antigov .freemusic .WTFOMGBBQ too. a .afterdawn wouldn't hurt either.

it does make it easier to block the domain now, Pakastain Should be happy now. Easier censorship for those too lazy to filter.

That is odd; most porn sites are not viral these days. You might get a virus from a joke site, a corporate website, or even afterdawn...but it is rare to get them from porn sites.

Good reason to change to an operating system that is not plagued by all kinds of virus and spyware shit.

I agree, my neighbor watches them 24/7, he can't even upgrade properly as he askes me to help him all the time, I don't know if he is just lucky or these porn sites are truly becoming crap free.
