.xxx Domains Closer

.xxx Domains Closer – The agency that is in charge of controlling internet addresses recently stated that they are considering allowing porn sites to use .xxx domains to host their sites on. This is a move that many have asked for for quite some time, both inside and outside of the porn industry. The decision shows that the agency is willing to heed and work with suggestions that would benefit the economy online.

ICANN, the agency in charge, have rejected the application for this same move three previous times. They had reportedly received increasing pressure from a number of Christian groups and governments that did not like how quickly that porn had spread online. While it is a problem, allowing the sites to have their own web address may be able to keep people who are not interested in seeing what they have to offer, off the websites that they don’t want to see.

“It will promote more labeled content,” said Stuart Lawley, ICM’s Chief Executive Officer. “People who want to find it know where it is, and people who don’t see it or want to keep it away from their kids can use mechanisms to do so.”

Skeptics say that the new domain will likely change little, as the sites can still use the old .com and .net domains to host their pornography. Most sites would likely keep using the .com domain, as it is the most recognizable and allows the sites to be found more easily by those that are searching for them.
