Default New domain for XXX???

CANN turns its attention to .xxx adult domains 12:31PM
ICANN, the body that oversees Internet domains, has begun commercial and technical negotiations that will result in the introduction of the .xxx top-level domain (TLD) for websites with adult content.

ICM Registry, which submitted the .xxx application, claims the suffix will create a clearly identifiable area of the Internet to help Net users avoid and keep children away from unwanted or inappropriate content. The move is backed by members of the adult entertainment industry.

Websites that register to use the domain will be expected to prevent marketing to children, protect users' privacy, block any attempt to use malicious code for spoofing and phishing, avoid the use of misleading site names and provide accurate meta tagging. However there will be nothing to stop less-scrupulous sites from continuing to use .com and other TLDs.

The $12bn industry is expected to gain access to .xxx addresses, which will cost $60 a time, from the beginning of 2006.



Do you really think this is going to stop kids going on websites like this? I suppose it would be alot more easy to filter... What does everyone think?

It wont stop kids from viewing..

But like you said it will make parents like me able to filter out such sites. I for one aggree with Ratings on sites and making adult sites use the .xxx domain.

Yeah I think it'd help alot
and like I've read, it wil make it easier to block, since blockers nowadays can only look at the content, now it'd only have to look at the xxx extension, though of course, sites will stil be created using the normal ones...

But there will still be thousands of sites under .com so it won't help that much. I think it's a waste of time and money. if your not going to make every XXX site do it what is the point?

I do get your point actually Dishdog, though some porn sites might be professional and want the xxx one, so at least some would be saved from being entered into.
