ICANN Rejects .xxx Domains

ICANNICANN decided that they were not going to allow the .xxx TLD (Top-Level Domain) for adult content. I feel that if they voted to accept the application they would be able to use it and gain many benefits. Businesses and Schools could just block one TLD instead of trying to block certain types of sites. If you try to block types based on words but you may be blocking sites that are legitimate sites. The .xxx top-level domain will create a clearly identifiable area of the Internet so that Internet users can be more informed when choosing to select or avoid adult entertainment sites.

What Are the Benefits of the .xxx TLD?

  1. For willing adult consumers of adult entertainment, the Best Business Practices incorporated into the .xxx registration agreement will bring a greater degree of confidence and certainty to their online experience.
  2. For adult entertainment providers, identifying themselves as compliant with a comprehensive set of Best Business Practices is expected to provide more predictable revenue streams, greater customer retention and fewer complaints as regulators and others will see adult entertainment providers take a proactive and responsible approach to their web presence.
  3. For individuals or families wishing to avoid adult content, the machine- readable labels will allow easy and reliable filtering.
  4. In addition, the introduction of .xxx creates a credible, self-regulated forum for all stakeholders to discuss and actively respond to concerns about online adult entertainment.
