ICANN approves .xxx domain names

Bookmark and Share

ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, has reportedly granted approval for the creation of the .xxx top level domain.

Adult websites will use the domain, obviously enough (either that or Australian lagers – well, it’s close enough). It should help mark out more clearly which content is adult related on the web.

And of course, it’ll doubtless be a popular domain, given just how many sex related sites are out there. Although some providers of adult content are worried it will effectively mark them out for easier censorship.

Reuters claims that ICANN will make an official announcement regarding the matter later on today. We can expect the first .xxx domains to start appearing next year.
