XXX Domain approved

It is quite amusing that three letters can mean such naughtiness, but XXX maybe the roman numerals for thirty, but for most people on the planet XXX means porn and anything associated with the industry.

However, it seems that this is delicate subject that the internet and its authorities have skirted around for some time. In fact, the first sign of trouble started around ten years ago, when the online adult entertainment industry wanted to create the .xxx top level domain.

Now it seems the authority in charge to top level domains the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has now approved the creation on the .xxx domain for use in the adult entertainment industry.

According to Icann, “The Icann community has engaged in extensive debate as well, with this single issue generating higher volumes of community comment than nearly any other issue ever faced within Icann.” At least with this domain available their will be no mistake when carrying out a search for something innocent that just happens to be the same as something rude!
