New Web Domain Tag Is .xxx-Rated

The Internet just got its own red light district—a .xxx extension for adult entertainment (read: porn) sites.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the California-based non-profit group that manages Internet addresses, approved the .xxx web domain extension over the objections of the porn industry and several governments, including the Obama administration.

ICANN’s vote at its meeting in San Francisco is a first step to greatly expanding the choice of top-level domains that are available—those two, three, and four-letter extensions such as .com (pronounced dot-com), .edu,.org, and .info.

Florida-based ICM registry will run .xxx and already has a dedicated website: http://www.icmregistry.com/index.php.

ICM will keep it clean, making sure .xxx websites exclude spam, viruses, or illegal behavior.

“At the moment, the consumer has no way of knowing who is operating to good standards or has viruses,” Stuart Lawley, ICM Registry’s chairman and chief executive, told The Washington Post. “This new domain allows webmasters to associate with best business practices.”

Some political candidates have run into domain name trouble: have a look here. (http://www.nationaljournal.com/what-s-in-a-domain-name--20110317?page=1)
The Government Advisory Committee, a group of representatives who monitor ICANN's activities for their national governments, told ICANN this week that some governments that oppose such a domain name may block access if it is approved.
