For years supporters of the .xxx extension have fought with ICANN for an approval of an extension exclusively for adult content, and now they have their wish. ICANN announced, as of Q2 2011, the .xxx extension will go live with over 230,000 domains already reserved.

Lol. soon enough .xxx domains will surpass .com domains

technologymob2088d ago

Nah, currently 25,270,000,000 .coms in Google's index so I don't think it will be touching the .com (nor will any other domain) for a very long time (if ever).

fatstarr2088d ago

i wanna look into this. where did you find this info exactly. and how many of those 25 billion .com sites are actually adult material sites.

If that doesn't work... Type 'site:.com' in google. Good luck sifting through them all and counting the adult ones ;)

It works for all other extensions too. At least, I think that's an accurate way of doing it.

Just from a few quick advanced searches

porn site:.com 521,000,000
xxx site:.com 324,000,000

did a few more which i shouldn't mention
but i bet if you get into niche sites a lot more results will come up.

I read an info graph that said a majority of the internet is porn and porn related things.

Yeh, well Facebook (in the UK at least) is more popular than porn now apparently. But in terms of registration I highly doubt .xxx will overtaken .com...

There are just too many .com domains, and every single 'good' one left or that expires is snapped up quickly.

And I'm out of bubbles :(

It is about time. Finally, we can allow the students at our school access to the internet again. Now they can actually search terms that are relevant to anatomy, biology, and health ed classes without getting 25,269,999,999 porn sites.

Sex, money and power... LOL

That right there is the future, ladies and gentlemen. .cum domains will be very popular.
