Porn sites could get “.xxx” domain

Final approval could happen by 2011


 

Porn websites could soon be trading their .com domains for .xxx, pending board approval. On Friday, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) board of directors approved the new top-level domain—the technical name for the .com, .xxx or .net part of a URL—and sent it on to the next committee. ICM Registry, a nonprofit organization, has been leading the charge to establish the new top-level domain. But final approval may not happen until 2011, says ICANN Chairman Peter Dengate Thrush. The ICANN Governmental Advisory Committee, an organization of 100 governments, must take up the issue and offer public policy advice on the .xxx domain. Its recommendations will be considered as part of the approval process, alongside that of the ICANN board. ICANN, the private nonprofit organization that manages the Internet naming system, has jurisdiction over top-level domains. ICM Registry said the .xxx domain is beneficial to the public because it sends an obvious signal that the domain contains pornography, which is desired by some and avoided by others.

  1. I think it should be removed all together but if you guys arent capable of that it should be purchased not free with lots of added tax ….And your private info should be taken so it can be controlled keep these sex predators from feeding this underage xxx. No one should be able to log on and pull free porn of the internet….And if you want to use free rights then I quess its free rights to murder, rape, steal, and all the other horrible things you can think of ….Stop being so worried about taxing food and get some control on the things that are really killing us…

    • Yea… Tax things Kelin doesn't like!

      Sports are dangerous, we should stop those too. Oh, and red meat. Too much saturated fat. And alcohol. That's terrible for the body.

      While we're at it, since seeing sex is horribly unnatural and taboo, maybe we should consider outlawing (or taxing) sex itself….
