HOW TO: Reserve Your Own XXX Domain Names

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) finally approved a new top-level domain (TLD) for domain names ending in .xxx.

Hereafter URLs ending in .xxx will contain sexually oriented adult entertainment content that is verified to be neither fraudulent nor illegal. We also believe sales of .xxx domains should begin soon in Q2 2011. Here I have mentioned the steps to reserve your own .XXX domain names.

Reserve XXX Names

Step 1 : Go to ICM Registry and register for a free account if you don’t have.

Step 2 : After the basic Email Verification process, log into to your account. Now go to Reservation section.

You have the right to apply (on behalf of your customers) for domains in .xxx that they already own in .com, .net or another TLD, such as a country code TLD. This process is called Name Reservation. To do this, provide them with the existing domain(s) that you or your customers own.

You may submit as many domains, but only up to 1000 at a time using this form. Names must be entered one domain name per line. Enter ONLY the domain name, NOT in the form of a URL.

For Example…
domain1.com
domain2.net
domain3.org

Pre-Owned and Wish List

#Pre-Owned : If you wish to have domain.xxx for your domain.com or some other TLD, then use the “Pre-Owned” section of ICM registration to reserve .xxx names.

Preowned

Example : If you already own domain.com, use the “Pre-owned” fields to reserve the name domain.xxx.

#Wish List : Use the “Wish List” fields to request name reservations for domains that you do not already own in other top-level domains.

Wish List Names

Click “Submit” to submit the .xxx name reservation requests to ICM Registry.

Do you think it will make any difference? Porn will always be porn whether it is .com or .xxx

  1. whatever it is its quite obvious that porn will remain porn even if thats .xxx or .com or what so ever and 2ndly porn is still not allowed legally in India we can simply do NOTHING with it.

  2. I never think about it, It’s really going to prove a great deal. 😉

  3. All I know is I’m not gonna reserve one. 😀

    That might not make a difference, but personal blog in a .xxx TLD will make a difference I guess. Drive more interested people to the blog. 😉

  4. Hmm… I don’t know why would I need a porn-domain, but will come in handy for others, maybe.
